Stayed here for 1 night during a roadtrip on highway 1.

+ The room was overall comfortable. Bed was comfortable. However, it was too high. They seem to have 2 mattresses on top of each other, you need to jump to get on to the bed, where as the nightstands next it are not as high. Which is not very convenient, but not a big deal. Still overall it was very comfortable.

+ Bathroom clean. Water pressure is wonderful, very strong.
- Bath tub drain is very slow, causing the water not to drain completely during shower, if you stay in the shower more than a few minutes your feet can get covered in water due to the drain's slowness which is very uncomfortable.

+ Good location for an overnight during a roadtrip on highway 1.

+ free on-site parking

- The heater had a very bad smell. A combination of a gas smell and dust. The smell was bad enough that we could not use it. Overnight the room got rather cold as this was December and were unable to use the heater.
- Reception guy not super friendly. He was nice and accommodating, but not as friendly as a motel staff would be expected. Not a big deal.

* Free breakfast offered. Includes a waffle machine, cold cereals, coffee and packaged muffins. Does the job.

Handily placed just off the freeway and 5 minutes from the beach. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. Front desk staff were a bit slow, but otherwise friendly. Rooms were large and clean. Good all round option that won't break the bank.

The bed was surprisingly comfortable. We had no problems or issues with any of the amenities, considering that it was about the lowest cost place we could find in the area. The microwave did have a little trouble opening, but nothing serious. The man at the desk was not especially friendly and the continental breakfast left us wanting! Nonetheless, overall, it wasn't bad for the money. At least there was a fridge and hairdryer!

Stayed here 1 night. Was a stop on the drive from SF to LA so a good but cheap motel was the pre-requisite.
Ocean Palms didn't disappoint. Basic but clean. For what it is, Ocean Palms offers a comfortable bed, off street parking, free wifi that works just fine if not a bit fiddly to connect to - in my case anyway and an OK bathroom.

I didn't notice traffic noise from the nearby highway and the guy at reception was certainly entertaining and also helpful

This motel was ok for us since we had a small dog. But didn't know there was a charge for the pet and were only allowed to use rooms who had previously had pets in them. The carpet did not seem clean but basically the room was ok for this trip with our pet.

Room tip: The carpet needs to be replaced.
