This was our 1st time staying at Seaside but we will most definitely return. The owners/hosts are the most kind people and they take such good care of their place. The garden out back is so relaxing & well kept, lots of comfy chairs to sit & read or just listen to the waves. So many beautiful plants & flowers,...

This small unique treasure is a one of a kind property. Each of the rooms are uniquely decorated with individual themes. The rooms are immaculately clean and the owners are delightfully engaging. There is a wonderful garden area where one can relax and enjoy the sea breeze. Centrally located in this last of the great California beach towns.

Rick and Rebecca have created a gem! It's our home away from home! We absolutely love coming over to Cayucos and staying at the Seaside! It renews my soul as it will yours. Leave the windows open and her the surf and catch the sea breeze! You will fall in love with this place!

Rick and Rebecca go out of their way to make it an awesome stay no matter how short or long our visit. Rooms are always comfortable and so clean. Each room has its own hand painted design and theme and it has several rooms with kitchens - which is a bonus for us. Definitely our fave place to be! Reasonable...

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Seaside Motel a couple of days ago. This motel is exactly as others have described - exceptionally clean, thoughtfully designed and perfectly located.

Five days in Disneyland! Yes, we'd need a vacation from our vacation after that too! Haha :)) so glad you found us, and happy we could accommodate! We'd love to have your little family back, as long as you please. Take care!

Quaint, friendly and cosy motel. Owners were very helpful - left lights on and rooms open for our very late arrival. Each room has its own unique style - really quirky and unique. Easy stroll to the beach and shops. Wish we could have stayed longer in this laid back, picturesque town.

We chose this place on a whim, and were lucky to get a room just for one night from Sunday-Monday. Each room is themed (we were in The Hunt, the safari themed room), which we enjoyed. Plenty of room for us and our son took the adjacent private bedroom. Beds were plush and very comfortable. Plenty of towels, coffee, cups,...

This quaint, intimate, and peaceful place is magical in removing your stress. Extremely well kept and clean. The work of love that Rick and Rebecca have built is amazing. The garden is like no other. Not sure where I would linger longer....in the garden or one of the uniqe rooms.
