This is your basic motel, a clean room with thin walls, but right across from the beach and walking distance to downtown. My wife and I came with our 6 year old, and I was very surprised to find out the front desk has a number of beach toys for kids to take with them, also beach towels for everyone....

My husband and I stayed here over Memorial Weekend. It's a typical beach motel, which is exactly what I wanted. I knew we would be at the beach most of the time so I didn't want anything fancy or too expensive. It was a bit expensive for such a ordinary motel room but hey, it's right at the beach. We...

I stayed for 5 nights here in August of 2007. I was younger then but i still remeber some of the details to this day. The hotel rooms were average and there were not that many rooms. There was also a lot of noise at the property next door. The hotel is located across PCH from the beach and is...

I usually skip by small motels, because I have always had bad experiences with them. They are always dirty and run down, this was a really nice motel, with a beautiful ocean view and a short walk to the ocean. The lady at the front desk was accommodating and very sweet. Loved the stay and will stay again.

The motel is clean and well kept. Ample parking and no drive through traffic is allowed. The front desk is helpful and friendly with discount coupons, brochures and local knowledge and advice. The room itself is on a par with Super 8 accommodations, which is a cut above Motel 6. Furnishing and bedding are designed to endure ocassional sand, though...

This is by no means a 5-star hotel, but if you are looking for a room with a shower, comfortable bed, television, and an ocean right across the street, then this is your motel. The staff was very helpful and polite. The cleaning lady was also very nice and did a great job each of the four days that we...

We have stayed several times over the last year while visiting our son. It may be an older motel but it is very clean and comfortable. Carrie and her staff are very accommodating and friendly. We park at the motel and never use a car once we are there. Everything is within walking distance and its very easy to get...

This motel is very old, old carpets, noisy, poor sleep quality. Good for young kids on a party or surfers staying here on a budget. Staff unfriendly. If you are on a low budget still would not stay here.
