        Clean and convenience”

        This motel is closed to the Hearst Castle where we intended to visit on next day. The room of this motel is clean, price is reasonable, the CP value is high. We recommend to other tourist who intend to go for west shore near by.

        This was my second visit and it was just as good as last year. The garden and pool are very nice and the room is clean and well -equipped. The staff are very friendly and helpful and there's a nice restaurant right next door.

        Great Value Compared to Similar Properties Around the Area”

        All rooms were recently totally remodeled a year ago. All new granite slab showers and countertops, carpeting, furnishings, windows and appliances. Since this establishment is across the road from the ocean but miles from any markets, they provide in every room a mid sized refrigerator that can hold an abundance of groceries along with a microwave and a coffee maker in each room. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in. Pay just a few dollars more and upgrade to a room upstairs with a private balcony. There's no one above you and you'll spend a lot of time sitting outside and enjoying the peek a boo view of the ocean from your lanai. Very dog friendly establishment. The only complaint from two visits here is that the front office is usually unattended as they seem to multi task the front desk person around the property and when they are at the desk they are quick to get rid of you so don't expect much from the staff. Mid week rates are a great bargain.

        So much nicer inside than it looks!”

        A surprisingly lovely stay- everything looked new and very nice, we didn’t expect such good quality for such a good price. I’m glad they spent their renovation money inside the rooms rather than outside on a new sign :) don’t be fooled by the humble exterior, this place is great. Would definitely stay here again next time I was driving the 1.

        Above average”

        Booked this motel about 5 months back at SGD126.91, it was priced at SGD76.91 on the day of check in, all amount after tax. This was the first disappointment having paid SGD50 more even with such advance booking. Prior to this, I have messaged the motel but no reply. The aircon/heater vents are filled with layer of black dust, very noisy when switched on. Likewise, the bed frame and coffee machine are filled with layer of dust. The shower tap is broken into half and hence sharp edges, difficult to turn. The worst accommodation we have ever stayed.

        Perfect spot for a layover”

        We drove the coast from San Francisco. This was an excellent place for our stop overnight. The rooms was perfectly clean and the bed soooo comfortable. They recommended the restaurant next door - the Big Sur and it was a diner home cooked meal. It was fantastic and prices were great!

        You get what you pay for. No frills”

        Not a bad place to lay your head for a night. Room was a bit small, but had overhead fan, fridge and microwave. Pool and jacuzzi were nice and clean. My only complaint is there weren't enough bath towels for two people, but probably my fault for just not asking for more. If this place included breakfast it would have been perfect. Also, I requested through Agoda a room on the top floor which wasn't honored, and though there were plenty of empty rooms throughout, we weren't upgraded to a room with a view. That would've been good customer service to keep me coming back.

        Great location for the Price!”

        It met our expectations for a motel near the beach. We were there for a wedding and didn't want to pay the wedding venue hotel pricing, so this was a great choice! Our kids were able to enjoy the pool as it is heated, and we ate breakfast next door at Big Sur Restaurant, 12% off was offered by our hotel staff. I would stay again.

        Newly renovated big and clean room. Staff was not always at the check-in counter, needed to ring a bell and waited a while for service. A hairdryer was not privided in our room, called the staff at night but was told that they were running out and we would have to wait until the morning, which was too late. Overall, a nice stay, good for the price.

        Good value, clean, get a top floor”

        For $75 out-the-door, we got a clean, 2-queen bedroom with fridge/microwave that was close to Hearst Castle, the beach and Cambria. They must have been short staffed, because it took 10 minutes for the staff to show up at the front desk, but after that all was smooth sailing. Ask for a top floor, because you can really hear the people on the second floor walk. We opted to eat in Cambria and easily found some affordable and yummy places to eat (JBJ's Round up Pizza & Grub, Cambria Cafe).

        We were driving up the coast and just needed a stay for one night. We were fortunate to get a room towards the back so no road noise. The rooms and hotel are not at all like the pictures. It’s quite far from the beach and the standard rooms are tiny. Otherwise we were comfortable and the room was clean.

        Then they put us in the only other room available, and that one was dirty also. It still had trash from the previous guest in the trash cans and old food in the fridge. I was unhappy with it, we rarely get to go on vacation and to end up in dirty conditions was saddening.
