    Older but well-maintained motel. Close to PCH and Moonlight Beach. We Tate our bikes and ride in the morning, head out to the beach in the afternoon, and then off to dinner at any number of places, many within walking distance. Great place to stay!

    Love the ambience at this motel. The management is awesome and the grounds are super clean and cute. So close to the beach and all the best restaurants. Great beach views and only 2 short block walk to Moonlight Beach.

    Our unit, which didn't have a separate bedroom (i.e., it was a studio-type layout) had the TV in the room with the beds.
