Clean, friendly. Although air in room didn't work. We were not too bothered by it though. Was a perfect place for what we needed. Great location, although more dining options would be nice. Front desk staff was very nice, helpful

Not at all what I expected --- This is an average standard wooden American Motel. Room was ok but the bath room was 20 years out of date, bed was large and comfortable, room was clean. no breakfast was included. Cost $270 per night !! I would have rated this as about $100 per night -- would I stay again...

I stayed in this Hotel during my US Southwest trip. We were group of 23 people. Previously viewed on the Internet looked like a very a simple and not very good motel. But arriving here was pleasantly surprised. Everything was perfect, very good rooms, comfortable. The main thing that we could have a good rest after the long trip.I recommend...

First impression wasn't good, the guy on reception wasn't at all friendly. Plus side good location and not expensive. Negatives - no air con, room could do with a refurb and sound insulation. If I was passing again I would probably try another hotel but it wasn't awful either.

We got a nice and clean room upstairs, new bedding, king size bed, clean bathroom (no hairdryer). Quiet and silent. Position is ideal if visiting Hearst Castle or beginning/ending your trip to Big Sur. We also had a bath in the hot jacuzzi tube in the spa. Price is honest in a quite expensive area of California.

We came from a 4-hour road trip & when we got to the office of this motel, we need to use the restroom, can you believe they don't even have one as the rude, unfriendly lady on the front desk said. She sent us half a block on a restaurant to use their bathroom. The room is outdated & felt...

We had a king room which was ok but because of being on the ground floor we had a lot of noise from the guests in the rooms above. No A/C so very hot as could not have foors or winfows open due to security and feeling unsafe. I asked for a fan & lucky for me they had one...

Great get away and overnight stay! Comfortable room for a great price along the most scenic Central California Coast! Clean, quiet and restful... When we logged in for free wi-fi we were pleased to discover a nice webpage for the motel, with local attractions, history, amenities, and links. Well done Silver Surfer!
