I stayed here for 2 nights while on vacation and I had no problems whatsoever. The room occupancy was for 2 - it wasn't a huge room, but room enough for two. I can tell the bathroom had been recently remodeled and was nice and clean. My corner room was on the first floor, but I could still see the...

My family of 4 stayed one night at the Wilkies and we will never return. We all agree it was our worst hotel experience. I don't know if i have enough room here to tell you everything that went wrong. I guess it all began with paying $270 a night and when we pulled up we saw it was a...

The room was extremely clean, and came with refrigerator and microwave. The staff was very nice. The area was quiet and pretty. I would stay again, definitely!! Very reasonably priced. So much better than the big, impersonal hotels! Thank you.

We stayed here for two nights. The location is fine, its quiet and a few minutes walk from the ocean. We had two rooms, both were well equipped, clean and comfortable. The owner was helpful and breakfast was reasonable (and included in the price) Nice, unassuming, motel. We would stay here again

We have been taking weekend trips this summer and at the last minute we decided to go to the coast to escape the heat of the Central Valley. There was one room remaining and I grabbed it. We had an event to attend first so we arrived around 9 PM. We had a room on a corner so we had...

We were very concerned after reading the reviews, but we're so pleased we took the chance. The room was spotless, the staff very friendly and helpful. The bed great, in fact, my husband and I agreed that we had the best sleep of our trip here, both of them. We plan to be in the area longer next year and...

I have been waiting (about a month) for our Choice Hotel points to be added to our account for this stay before I reviewed The Wilkie's Inn. Not sure we are ever going to see those points, so here goes. There are three criteria I judge a hotel/motel by: Cleanliness, Security & (when we drive our sports car) Parking. Cleanliness...

Located away from the main drag of town, this place is a little dated but the rooms were clean and cozy and the area is very quiet at night. It's close to several nice restaurants, beachfront and even wildlife - hubby saw a deer just across from the motel's parking lot.

We stayed for 1 night in a room on the 2nd level. It was quiet and comfortable however when I had booked I had requested 2 Queens beds and on arrival it was 1 queen and 1 single. The room was clean though the decor looked a little tired and the bed valance was ripped. It is a few minutes...
