Pros: Exterior overlook view of the ocean.
Cons: Booking.com, The picture of the room view was totally not accurate that was shown to book on your website. I booked room based off of picture that had an ocean view from the room. The view was an enclosed shared patio looking at bushes and behind the bushes was a freeway. Based on this experience, I will be reluctant to book accommodations through this company. The page to book should inform consumer that this room does not have an ocean view. If I would have known this room did not have an ocean view, I would have booked elsewhere and paid up to $400 if the room was great. My family and I were very disappointed with this hotel. Not to mention the pool was really small and very crowded. The bed was supposed to be a king size, and was a queen size mattress.

Pros: Room was a good size; beds were firm; nice linens; small pool; out door sitting area with view of water. Good water pressure, good internet service. Fireplace in room a plus in winter but not a bonus in summer. Ceiling fan overhead in vaulted roofline. Clean breakfast area, good coffee (light and dark roasts, decaf with flavoured creamers); a bit more variety than most continental breakfasts offered in motels; (cottage cheese, fruit salad, mini waffles w/spray can whipped cream; cold boiled eggs; tiny 2 bite muffins; yogurts; apples and nice fresh bananas).
Cons: Location too near a service road and the #101; noisy with no air conditioning to help block noise; room was closed up, very hot and stuffy when we arrived so we had to open all three windows to get a breeze coming through to cool down the room to sleep at night. Fireplace pilot light generated heat as well. Most annoying feature was a behind the mirror light in the bathroom that we could not turn off at night; we couldn't just shut the bathroom door as it was a pocket door which kept getting stuck on its tracks so we gave up trying to close it. At 400USD per night, quite pricey for neighbourhood and age of motel but checking others nearby even more expensive.
