6.0 Okay
Cons:Hotel has seen better days but location is close to beach.
A
9.7 Excellent
Pros:Firepit at night was awesome. Sunrise and sunsets were amazing.
Cons:Bathroom needs to be redone
A
5.4 Passable
Pros:Staff were friendly but did not communicate well.
Cons:Found pincher bugs in bed and bathroom floor. Bathroom had broken toilet seat and the fridge was frozen over. Very hot in rooms no air conditioning only a fan so you had to keep windows open for cool air and you could hear the freeway all night. Not worth the price of the room very poor.
A
7.4 Good
Pros:A simple motel with comfortable beds. Location was perfect for a visit to the Hearst castle. Very convenient. The gentleman at the front desk we arrived the evening prior was very friendly and helpful.
Cons:Parking situation was poor. There aren't enough spaces for the hotel guests. Also the complementary breakfast voucher is a waste of time. The restaurant that is associated with the hotel that excepts the breakfast voucher has the worst service I've seen in a long time. Don't even waste your time getting the complementary breakfast and less you'd like to sit around for a while and get a poor quality danish and cold coffee while you're waiting for your milk to arrive.
A
7.4 Good
Pros:Very close and convenient to the Hearst Castle and the beach. Everything in the town is super close though.
Cons:Wasn't special in any way. Just another motel by the water, could have stayed in any random motel with th same experience.
