Positive Reviews

A great location close to the beach

The hotel enjoys a perfect location just minutes from the beach on California's beautiful Big Sur coastline and Piedras Blancas State Marine Reserve where you can see the elephant seals is around fifteen minutes' drive away. Historical Hearst Castle is also just a short drive away.

Handy room and hotel facilities for all your needs

Rooms offer a microwave and a fridge and there is a small convenience store nearby should you wish to make use of these room facilities. Free Wi-Fi is also available throughout the hotel and the hotel's indoor pool is excellent, especially for children.

Next door to a restaurant

There is a restaurant next door which offers breakfast and dinner at a reduced rate for guests of the hotel if you have a voucher. There are also many other restaurants nearby.

Negative Reviews

Tired furnishings and in need of some attention

According to some guests the hotel is starting to look rather tired and old and is in dire need of a modernisation and a good clean. There have been reports of dirty carpets and stained, ripped bed linen along with uncomfortable beds and old, stained chairs.

Unhelpful staff lacking in experience

Members of staff are not always the most helpful and don't take it upon themselves to try and resolve any issues. Some previous guests had problems with reservations and complaints about rooms, but the inexperienced staff were unable to deal with these effectively and to guests' satisfaction.

Wi-Fi is free but it barely works

Although the Wi-Fi offered by the hotel is complimentary there have been many reports from previous guests that it hardly works and it is impossible to get a signal. Some have had to resort to using the signal from other hotels nearby.
