The Good: Upon arrival we were greeted by nice staff who had our rooms ready. We were on motorcycles and were given a motorcycle kit for cleaning our motorcycles. They are also a dog friendly motel.

We stayed here one night on a Sunday. Rooms are small but are clean, it did accommodate our party of four adults comfortably, we had two queen beds. Continental breakfast was nice. Good Coffee. There is also a Mexican restaurant on site. Easy drive to downtown Morro Bay.

The bed was more comfortable than ours at home. Room was very clean and well supplied with cute soaps, fan folded towels and more. Staff were very nice and cared about the guests. Flowers and a birthday were waiting for us in our room. Breakfast was delicious every morning.
