A great motel experience.
Pros: All amenities in the room. The bed. We thought the quality of the food and very helpful staff in the Best Western restaurant next door were excellent.
Cons: The shower could do with being up dated to enable in to be kept cleaner. Being unable to pay our bill in cash the morning we left.

Great location Great value Very...
Pros: Location and access to beautiful beach Right down the road form Hearst Castle-we could have taken several tours with easy back and forth(would have gone back for evening tour but it was sold out)
Cons: Brought my dog and needed to wipe up the carpet after she ate-found the carpet to be very dirty. Didn't smell though.

Great location, nice and quiet
Pros: Great bed. Short drive to Hearst Castle, sea lion rookery. Cavalier restaurant @ Best Western next door good for meals.
Cons: Microwave clock really bright and shines right on to the bed with no access to turn off (but thanks for the microwave).
