Poor 2.0
It was an ocean front view room however the windows didn't open. I couldn't hear the great sound of the ocean. The last thing I want is to leave my door open.

Drunk upstairs neighbors
We stayed up all night because the neighbors upstairs were up drinking and dropping beer bottles and cusing at each other and stomping around up stairs it wasn't good. When I told them at the front desk all they said I'm sorry and next time you stay we will give you a discount but I don't want to stay there ever again after that.

Great beach motel close to Cal Poly
The location and value cannot be beat. Is easy drive to Cal Poly so parents can enjoy beach and easily participate in campus activities. The staff is kind and helpful. The rooms are clean and have everything you need.

Surprisingly Nice
Very nice hotel! Room was kind of small but everything else made it worth it. Hotel was right by the beach. It was nice to leave our door open and hear the waves. Room was very clean and refreshing. And perfect walking distance to all the shops and restuarants. Will deffinitely stay here again next time!
