Travelling from Australia I booked this place for 2 adults and 3 kids (12, 10 and 7) for USD 105 (plus tax). It was fantastic value, was clean and the themed rooms (ours was African) is a nice quirky touch. I would personally like it if they charged more and included breakfast, makes a travelling holiday easier if breakfast included...

Oh, breakfast does sound lovely! It's just Rick and me here at the motel, but Martine's across the street has a wonderful breakfast menu! We are so very happy you enjoyed your stay and, were able to keep within a reasonable budget. So important while traveling!

We arrived in Cayucos without any reservation and stopped at the seaside motel by chance. We were so lucky! This place is nice and peaceful, the beds are very comfortable, the rooms clean and the decoration really fun. A stone throw from the sea and with a garden to rest. (The landlady is a gifted gardener). The owners were adorable...

The Seaside Motel is a true gem. Spent the weekend there to celebrate a birthday with members of the family. The rooms are cozy, charming and immaculately clean. Rick and Rebecca are wonderful hosts and the garden provides a delightful place to gather during the day or after dinner. The only bad part of the stay was having to leave...

Sweet room, convenient location to beach, delightful hosts. The town is sweet and walkable, and has a local flavor not lost to modern businesses. If on a diet, don't go to the cookie company. They had the best vegan cookies ever.

Stayed one night with my husband and daughter and wish I could have stayed a week. Completely original--every room is unique, the gardens are delightful, and Rick and Becky, the owners, are the best. They're warm, friendly, knowledgeable, and most importantly, take such pride in the place--and it shows. Our little suite had two rooms and a bathroom (it was...

We stayed here on our Route 1 adventure. It is very welcoming and the garden is a real treat. We sat there and watched the sunset as well as enjoying a morning coffee. The bed was very comfortable and the room peaceful. The decor is charming and full of happiness. We would definitely stay here again.

The Seaside Motel is like staying with family only less intrusive! For such a small place there is plenty of privacy. The owners obviously love their property and care for it personally. The garden is an oasis and the gate to the beach makes you feel like a local. Each room is different and each is delightful. We plan to...
