From the moment we arrived, we felt the love! Our three dogs we greeted like royalty. They were given a hand painted dog bowl with their names on them. Filled with treats and toys, my dogs were over the moon! The Room was very clean and tidy. We were thrilled to find a coffee maker and refrigerator. It is located... More

This was our first visit to Cayucos and this motel was a very pleasant surprise. Great location and very friendly owner and staff - although when we checked out the staff were busy with their mobile phones probably on social media sites. This may account for the dirty floors in the rooms. Anyway we loved this motel and very much... More

I have stayed in Cayucos on several occasions and was intrigued by this quaint gem. I love these motels where the owners have taken much liberty in restoring and modernizing them.For a last minute getaway with my girlfriend, I was able to book a room here. We enjoy traveling with our pet friends so this was welcoming in that they... More

We stayed one night and had an enjoyable stay. Can't beat the location. Only problem was the noisy neighbors (celebrating until 4:00 AM). The walls are paper thin which is to be expected in an older Motel. Not the fault of the Motel - this happens. Right next to beach and they have a great layout for breakfast. The staff... More

Our first time staying in Cayucos and we were there for our 34th anniversary. Hotel staff was wonderful and this was a perfect room. Very sweet staff had cake waiting for us along with a sweet card. Able to walk to any restaurant and very easy beach access. We will definitely be going back again.

Pluses: Friendly staff, very dog friendly, clean room. Reasonably priced for the central coast. Terrific location right near the beach, which is also dog friendly. The impressive breakfast was fresh and very good. Minuses: Rooms are a bit dated and noise travels from the adjoining rooms, especially TV noise.

Had a great experience. The staff is exceptionally nice. If you are a dog owner, you will love staying there. We're dog owners, but even still, cleanliness is the most important thing for us. We were very impressed. The location is fantastic. Highly recommend.

We picked this hotel because it was reasonably priced for summer on the central coast, allowed dogs, was walking distance to the beach, and had great reviews. After checking in, it was everything I expected it to be and more!!! It is approx. 20 steps from the hotel to the beach, and less than a 5 min walk from to... More

This was our first stay at this little gem of a motel. We were impressed by the friendly, professional staff and spotless room. So happens we had our doggie in tow, but never, ever would have known a dog stayed in our room due to pristine cleaning. Bottom line; this is a very dog friendly and above all, people friendly...
