This motel has been beautifully restored in an early 1960s (or late 1950s) style of interior decoration. It's still just a simple motel, but it's way more fun and stylish than the typical Motel 6 and the location is just preposterously nice. I just happened to use this motel to stop on a work trip, but it would make a fun destination for a getaway.

This is the first Motel 6 ever! And it's been retro-fitted so it's cute. You can see the ocean. Staff is super-knowledgable and friendly!

$500 I spent on what seemed to be a microscopic room with two double beds. Beds were up against the walls about 18" between the two and about two feet between the end of the bed and dresser. The Room service company they use is terrible. They completely got my fajita entirely wrong, laughably wrong, and as he read back what I was supposed to get and really got - he knew they made errors and said he would take half off. Half off? I told him to please pick up the meal and give me all of my money back. The mediocre to poor customer service started with the unfriendly people at the front desk. They appear to be doing me a large favor by renting that terrible room for $500. No, it was not a holiday, no the hotel was not sold out, they were just arrogant. I think they believe it is a Four Seasons and can afford to throw attitude... it's a Motel Six and not a good one. It was clean, but run down and needs updating. Checkout time is 11:00 AM I asked for a late checkout and was told the latest they give is 11:30 AM. Wow. It felt like yes we will give you thirty extra minutes to pack your stuff up and get out so we can make room for the next sucker.
