Average service, expensive price

Posted Sep 8, 2017
I booked a 2-bed room online. First, it showed $180, then a "I hate this" message popped up saying it goes up to $202. As I didn't want to spend more time starting all over again, just accepted the price. Well the location was not bad, walking distance to the beach, the room was generally clean. But it is a little small for 3 adults. We were staying on the first floor and you can hear the footsteps, kids crying from the above. It was just an average room with above average price tag.

Affordable and laid-back motel, close to ocean

Posted Sep 6, 2017
The rooms are renovated and have been upgraded, including the installation of ceiling fans (no AC, but not needed because of the cooling ocean breeze). They are comfortable and very affordable. Good value for the price.

It was OK, not too much to expect from a motel, definitely needs some improvements.

Close to the highway

Posted Sep 3, 2017
Cons: The shower was not fully cleaned and the carpet was dirty.
Location: Hearst Castle was close by, a real plus.
Close to the highway, and where we wanted to visit for the weekend. Overall, average night stay.

Fun little stay

Posted Aug 24, 2017
Nice little Motel that has done a great job updating and keeping the rooms clean. Great location to get to Hearst and walk right over to the beach. We are a family of 4 with 2 boys being teens and there was plenty of room and they enjoyed the indoor pool. We also brought along our 2 little dogs and they loved the grass area and beach! All in all it's a clean, family friendly, dog friendly, relaxing little beach get away!

Great Room, Gross Jacuzzi, & Ice Machine

Posted Aug 23, 2017
Pros: Great patio in the room to chill on.
Cons: Clean Jacuzzi or upgrade, put towel rack outside shower, clean outside of ice machines.
Location: Nearby is hearst castle and a great little town not to avoid called harmony :) .. enjoy!
I really loved the upgraded looking room, the balcony with the chill chairs was great and what really made our night... but I rented the room specifically because it had a jacuzzi and the jacuzzzi was disgusting, the whole bottom was gross, yellow, black, and I wouldn't even approach it. The ice machine on the outside was filthy and I am not a person that gets easily grossed out... I am a get dirty person.. but germs are germs.. a hot rag to that thing would be helpful. One of the machines was cleaner on the outside then the other, but both were dirty, and I had to be sure not of my cup etc touched it to get the ice. I liked the price and maybe that's why it was low.. but if they could guarantee me a clean jacuzzi, I would consider returning happily, if not, im not sure I would be back. One little other thing.. in the bathroom, the placement of the towel rack was really bizzarely on top of the toilet and no where else, and you can't reach the towels etc from the shower. Found that weird but still enjoyed the marble shower.
