Pros: Spacious room, comfortable bed, 2 minute walk to beach. Very close to Hearst Mansion.
Cons: Do not be fooled by 'breakfast included', this is just a $4 voucher towards continental breakfast (muffin, juice and coffee $8) in nearby restaurant! Recommend driving to Cambria, 5 mins down road,for better choice of evening menu.

Pros: Amazing location on the beach, watched sunset with dolphins swimming around. Great location for Hearst castle and after. Days driving from Santa Cruz down the coast.
Cons: The breakfast was a muffin and drink, not really a continental or $4 towards an upgrade to cooked in the restaurant next door.
