While the Lodge is more of a motel than a hotel, it provides clean rooms and great amenities, including a restaurant, gym and even a convenience store. Of course the real kicker is that ALL OF THE ROOMS FACE THE OCEAN!!! Not to mention that you are only about a 10 minute drive from Hearst Castle. The rates are reasonable,...

This is a great little place to stay, nice room and facilities. Hotel staff were very pleasant. There are a few dining options in the area which is handy and a lovely ocean front to walk down to. We enjoyed breakfast at the lodge's restaurant and that was a good meal, the menu was extensive. Would happily stay again.

Everything was clean, but old. The floor squeaked with every step, made me feel sorry for anyone below us. The bed was lumpy, so not very comfortable. The view from the upper floor was great, but with all the traffic noise, I wish I stayed across the street, closer to the ocean, I may have been able to hear the...

Terrible! Dirty, aweful sheets and towels, hard mattress, bathroom full of mold. Moved rooms, squeeky floor, and same linens, very bad. Got money back and left. Would never recommend that dump! I don't need perfect, but do require clean.

Our was clean, and comfortable. The Lodge is in a great location where you can see the ocean and right off the Highway. The staff at the front desk were very knowledgeable about the area and gave us great advice on things to do and places to shop.

This is a large motel. The grounds are well maintained and it was clean. There is a pool in the courtyard and grassy area to play in. The room was clean, the shower was small, and the bed was pretty comfortable. The restaurant at the hotel is expensive, there are no coffee makers in the room but there is a...

The staff was kind and courteous. We stayed here for 2 nights, but I would recommend for one night only. The room was clean, but small. The bed was comfortable. The shower was narrow, and there was very low water pressure. The water temperature also fluctuated from hot to cold depending on the time of day that it is used....

Friendly Staff. Great Bar lounge Entertainment! Elvis Lives Again! Need to be more aware of Guests not adhering to rules. Makes it unpleasant for others. Office Staff needs to be available 24hrs or at least until midnight. Couldn't contact anyone when guests in room next to us were disruptive after supposed "Quiet Time".

Motel room was rather small but clean and OK. We were promised at checkin to get a certain discount at the local restaurant and were provided with some discount clips. But we were denied to get any discount when we proceeded to pay (you have to show it when you enter the restaurant, what sense makes this??? probably they will...
