This motel is old, on the run down side and right near the freeway. The room was fairly clean, but outdated. The exterior of the building was depressing. Breakfast was just okay. One plus was the price, although we paid the same amount the night before in Ventura and had a very nice room there. It's fine to sleep here...

We stayed two nights as a base for whale watching trips from Moss Landing. We were lucky to be upgraded to a small two-room suite. Breakfast was fine and included egg and bacon or sausage. Had one good dinner at the adjacent Black Bear Diner. Our room was right on the freeway off ramp so we were concerned about noise...

We booked a room 30 minutes before arrival on a long road trip. Price was good for our Canadian dollar. The clerk was friendly and helpful. We got checked in quickly in the evening. Good continental breakfast in the morning. Delicious make-your-own waffles! Variety of items. Room was nice. Sink area is separate from toilet and shower. Nice feature. We...

We just spent two nights at this motel. Very nice place to stay with good amenities. Very good breakfast with more options. Outdoor pool is nice. Overall it was clean and very good value for the price.

It's not a luxury hotel, it's a motel that has clean, comfortable beds and a good price with a breakfast that was good. It had an outdoor pool, but we arrived late and left soon after breakfast, so didn't use it. Everything was adequate.

We just spent the last three nights in Ventura CA. The rooms there are overpriced for what you get. We checked into this motel and said "Wow"!

Normally I would give this hotel a much higher rating. The room was clean, pillows, beds comfortable. We had TV when we arrived and relaxed a bit before going to dinner. Sometime during the night the storm hit and no lights or TV, nothing. The Black Bear Diner had also closed.. Things were bad all over Salinas. I was disappointed...

We stayed here for 1 night on our way from Anaheim to San Francisco and found it was a nice hotel to stay in. Our room was on the first floor facing the car park. The room was comfortable and large enough for a family of 4. The staff on reception were friendly and my sons enjoyed the free cookies!...

Chose this for a night stop over as it was relatively cheap. It was adequate for a short inexpensive stay, no more. I wouldn't recommend it for a long stay. Clean enough & was handy for getting to Laguna Seca race track.

If you check back, I have written a number a number of reviews regarding this motel, all of them great. Traveling thru or visiting this area, we have been staying here for more than 35 years, basically always happy.
