Quality of bedding starting with dirty bedspread.
The staff was very nice and very helpful. The location was good.
The room, small. The room very tiny. For the price I'd not stay again. If it was like 75.00 a nite for the location maybe.
Value location pet friendly
Friendly staff. Nice rooms. Continental Breakfast was OK. Need juice. Owners very nice. Overall enjoyed the stay. Nice to sit on the front patio and enjoy.the weather.
Wifi is not reliable. Breakfast was OK. Need to offer some juice. Milk gets warm.
Old motel, clean. We would stay again for one night.
The room smelled musty. The jaccuzzi tube had a spout that was loose and would need to be held in place to fill the tube. There were large cracks around the entry door so as to see daylight out side. It was way over priced for what you received. It was cold in the room at night with no apparent means of turning on a heater.
Price for the proximity to beach in summer.
Shabby condition of most everything. With minimal maintenance (effort and $$) this place could be decent.
The staff was very nice and friendly dealt with my lost reservation with no problems.
Room was very old and dated. There was a strong foul smell had to open the window and run the fan it helped a little. Slept with the window open due to the smell and stuffiness of the room we were in room 1. We heard another couple leave in the middle of the night and yell we will never stay here again. Don't know what happened with them. But I wouldn't ever stay there again either. It was the only room available to us during Cal Poly graduation weekend. I waited too long to book a room.
- By far the worst breakfast of our holiday. Only some coffee, cookies and cornflakes
Location. Walking distance to Pier and restaurants.
Walls and ceiling were dirty. Layout was funky and the room had been modified at some point. I would have had lower expectations, but not for a room costing $145/night. Other units were lived in (long term rentals) and areas outside doors had empty beer bottles and cigarette butts. Office smelled awful. It was a dive.
Staff was friendly.
TV didn't work and neither did the jacuzzi tub.
This place is dated
Courteous staff, very clean
No heating or cooling in the room, no wifi in the room
Location is good. It is close to the coast. Fine to stay for one or two nights .
Their rooms are too pricey for what they offer. They also have cabins which might be better.
No sleep, horrible beds 4 people, 2 adults on King bed, 2 kids on single beds, no one could sleep. Clogged synch Stained dark carpets Old rag towels I paid 138 (with tax) for probably the worst hotel/motel stay ever. Its a joke now with my family
The room was dirty looking. We had reservations, arrived at around 3pm. When we checked in nothing was said when given the keys that the room was not ready. We had to wait while they changed the sheets and prepared the room. We had a 4 pm wedding so time was tight. In the room I went to open the closet and the door handle fell off in my hand. In the morning we wanted coffee. There was a coffee maker but no coffee or cups. I would not recommend this establishment to anybody.
The owner was sweet.
Broken deadbolt. We came back from beach at 8:00 pm and our door was wide open! Coffee pot took over ten minutes to work. Ice maker only worked sometimes. No forks in kitchen! No air conditioner or heater that worked. No dish towels in kitchen. I could go on and on!!
Room was old and a little worn shower was open and shower head sprayed erratically.
close to the beach and family. comfortable, pretty room, clean. Pet friendly.
staff was accommodating while respecting need for privacy; pet friendly; great location; quaint
The phone didn't work The heater didn't work Using a hair dryer blew a breaker so we didn't have electricity
Very comfortable bed
Heater did not work
I enjoyed the spa tub.
The décor and linen was rather dated. The carpet was stained.
Pet charges too high.
