This hotel is more like a converted motel. The lobby is detached from the rooms. The rooms open into a center atrium and it feels rather motel-ish. I had the misfortune to visit during a winter storm and the power went out for about 3 hours. I was able to make the most of it spending some time in the...

We spent four days here. We chose the hotel because we thought it was really close to the water. We had a good view of the rock and the water and the first two nights we slept with the patio door open. I think I could hear the water which is my criteria for being close but I also heard...

Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay with us. After contacting our local Harbor Patrol office we discovered the fog horn blows 24/7 365 days a year because there is no way of predicting when fog will return to harbor. Depending on which way the wind is blowing there are times when it can't be heard. We apologize for...

This motel has a great location within easy waking distance to the waterfront. The building is being updated. The rooms are in need of some updating but were comfortable and clean. We were welcomed by the front desk staff and Pablo went out of his way to make our stay special. He even delivered a bottle of wine to the...

I stayed here a night before I went Hearst Castle tour. I got a front entrance, they are serving wines and cheese (free!!) They also told us there are free brkf! It was verity foods to choose for brkf. People are very very nice. I just did not like their hallway. Besides that, it was pleasant stay!

I especially enjoy the view of Morro Rock from this hotel and the balconies. The wine and cheese tasting in the evening make for a nice relaxing time after a long day. I was thrilled to see a "moon set" behind the rock this trip. There was a halo over it. Awesome!

Passed through this little town on the way to Monterey, and this hotel was an appropriately quaint and well-placed establishment. With amenities like wine and cheese tasting from 5 to 7 pm if I remember correctly, this hotel focuses on the little things that make a stay enjoyable. They also have actual shampoo dispensers instead of the little packages that...
