Firepit at night was awesome. Sunrise and sunsets were amazing.
Bathroom needs to be redone
Bugs and Broken Toilet Seat
Staff were friendly but did not communicate well.
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 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.
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.
It was alright.
Very close and convenient to the Hearst Castle and the beach. Everything in the town is super close though.
Wasn't special in any way. Just another motel by the water, could have stayed in any random motel with th same experience.
