We stayed here for one night on a trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles, the guy working behind the desk (assuming was the owner) was really nice and was very helpful pointing us in the right direction for some dinner. He also informed us that we got a really cheap deal because we booked so early I think we...

Basic motel which might benefit from an upgrade and some TLC. Well situated in town with secure parking. All the basics provided but the breakfast was just too basic and we went to Frankie and Lola for breakfast which was perfect! Wifi was ok.

Great location! The front desk was fabulous - he went out of his way to accommodate us, was very friendly, and helped us out when we accidentally left something in our room as we left town. This is a very basic motel. We stayed one night. For what it is, it is very expensive. But, we booked last minute and...

Bed was very noisy and room was old and in need of renovation as the rest of the motel . Location is good. The bathroom was...

Sandpipper Inn June 20-23, 2016 This is the place to stay when you want a good clean room where every thing works, it very quiet and if you have reached the level of maturity that a brand name is not important nor the unused amenities offered. The guests are quiet and respect the privacy of other guests. In our opinion...

While visiting San Simeon my husband and I stayed at the inn for one night. It was a cute, cozy inn and met our needs. They had a small continental breakfast set-up at the front office every morning- which I thought was cute. It was located close to the bay which was great.

It was way better than expected! The photos on booking dot com are old. Everything worked out really well! Even the little breakfast was more than we had expected. The room was super nice and totally functional! Even if some of the things were not our taste (everything was in sea-shell-style...) we liked it. We will totally come back next...

The motel is old and need some maintenance like changing the broken lamp in the room. Mold in the bathroom. Almost now water pressure. I see pretty good reviews here so maybe it was just our bad luck with the room number 14.

We stayed here one night in our Highway 1 trip from LA to San Francisco and had a nice and pleasant stay. It's just 10 minutes walk from city center. Very quite and clean, though the beds were a bit noisy. Also the included breakfast was ok but basic.

Super small nice town, Sandpiper Inn was good place to stay on the way to Los Angeles. A walking distance to Yacht club or beach. Quiet and safe. Service was good from all staff. Rooms are good, clean.
