Loved the location and the view from the room. It was right on the beach and we could look out and see the ocean. Also it was conveniently located and easy to find. I thought the price was a really good deal when I booked it.
The hotel was recently renovated and I like where they are going with it but I think it could still use some improvements. There is no AC, instead there are windows at the back of the room and one in the bathroom, so the rooms get pretty stuffy even with all the windows open. The bathroom was more than a little underwhelming and could maybe use some upgrades to the shower/tub area. Checking in was super easy and checking out should have been easy but there is no slot/box to drop off the room keys if you try to check out after hours. At least put in drop box or something. Also, FYI the walls are very thin. We could not sleep due to the neighbor's tv and other activities.
I always try to stay here when I visit the area. This was my 4th stay. The rooms have been attractively redecorated with white comforters and sashes on the beds and plenty of pillows. The beds are extremely comfortable, certainly as good as many high-priced hotels. Although the hotel is a short walk from the water, many rooms have views of the ocean, and if you open windows, you can hear the waves. Each room has a microwave and larger mini-fridge (about 3" high--not the tiny, square ones). There was a hair dryer in the bathroom.
The bathrooms are more typical of an older motel. Though I haven't noticed this in the past, this visit my bathroom was less-than-immaculate, with a couple hairs on the tile floor. Also the screen in the tiny bathroom window was very dusty and had obviously not been cleaned for a long time. These things were not a big deal to me, but if you're someone who would be disturbed by this, you may prefer a more pricey place. Also, though the website still lists it, they are no longer serving breakfast. I don't know if this is a permanent decision or a seasonal change for the rest of the winter months.
A good stopover
Location and price
Breakfast was not great; need protein like eggs please. Also, better coffee would be good.
Staff was courteous and quick. Simple and clean, recently updated floors were a nice surprise. Great access to Big Sur and Hearst Castle area. Slept here only, did not have the breakfast, nor did I use the TV.
Would stay here again but would try to avoid 1st floor, as the guests above us ran back and forth like they were having a relay race at dawn -- not the hotel's fault however.
Good value for the area
Nice size room, very clean and updated! The only
Would definitely stay again
