We got the last room on the day after Thanksgiving as a stopover on the way home from the San Franscisco area. Cayucos is a great looking town right on the beach north of Morro Bay. It has a pier, a great fish and chips place, numerous small town experiences. The Cypress Tree Motel emphasizes it's 50s-60s decor and ambiance. A little too much 50s-60s. Room was small, bed was noisy and lumpy, walls were thin, and no exhaust fan in the bathroom, which had only a shower. A 60s size TV and wicker table/chair rounded out the decor.
On the plus side, the heater worked well and was thermostat controlled, there was lots of hot water, the sheets were clean and it was quiet when the neighbors turned off their TV and went to sleep. There is lots of interesting (?) old license plates and Route 66 stuff. There is a nice sitting area, which was unused due to a fierce Santa Ana wind that came up overnight and rattled the front door all night. It is a family owned business, which we like to support.
Bottom line, not worth the money and too worn to consider coming back. Great town though, enjoyable with more modern accommodations.
