  • Look, this is an older motel...but the location is FANTASTIC. Honestly, we weren't planning on spending a lot of time here because...hello the ocean is right there. If you want an inexpensive, clean, motel close, REALLY close to the beach, this is a good choice. It's hold, it's nothing fancy, the beds are a bit...lumpy...but for the price and the location we were pleased. Just know what to expect.

  • We have tried many cheap hotels in California - this one was the best.

  • This is an old low budget motel, don't expect any frills, no air conditioning, coffee or snacks. It can be quite noisy being close to the road, and around 2am when people are coming back to the room. Maids work out of shopping carts and do minimal work. The room was not vacuumed, a Gatorade bottle was under the bed along with the remote to the TV. It was a place to rest my head for a few hours and it was what I expected when I read previous reviews.

  • The hotel was cool for a low cheap price no problems even allowed to check in early which was a plus.

  • Very friendly staff Bike hire at hotel was cheap and had locks Fantastic location Room very clean and large Best value
