The room was decorated about how I would expect but the bed was horribly uncomfortable. I felt like I was sleeping on bare springs. I did not sleep well for the two nights that we were there. I have a bad back amongst other medical issues and the bed was torturous to me. My hubby also felt uncomfortable. The room...

All the furniture were incredibly out-dated, and the bed felt like a wooden box. There were lots of stains and holes in the sheets/blankets (it's cleaned, but it feels really gross). The TV wasn't even a flatscreen. We booked the hotel thinking it was the nice updated room in the photos on the website, but it ended up being the...

The motel is modest, but comfortable, clean and well managed. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. There are a number of good restaurants nearby. The motel sits across a small parking lot and street from the waterfront.

Our visit to the Harbor View Inn was a big disappointment. For what we paid, the room was not nearly worth the cost. The room also created the wrong atmosphere for what should have been a romantic coastside weekend. The room is in poor repair. A light switch knob was missing in the bathroom, so we were unable to turn...

Booked last minute to go for Mavericks. Location was perfect for us, just across the highway from the harbor. We checked in quickly and easily, reception was very friendly. We had a room facing the harbor, downstairs. It had been recently remodeled and was clean. Bathroom had Kholer faucets and a multi-head/waterfall shower, with was lovely! Fresh picked flowers on...

Moderately priced hotel with upgraded rooms (new bath and living space with new furniture). Generally quiet, although being close to Highway 1, there can be some occasional noise Walking distance to all the attractions of Pillar Point Harbor -- restaurants, shops, beaches, marina and parks. Serves a small continental breakfast. Plenty of parking on the property or on the street.

I called in to ask about the pet policy and was told my rate would be $79.99 plus tax, however, when I arrived I was suprised with a $30 pet fee and told the only room that was pet friendly was on the ground floor. When I pressed the matter the receptionist suggested it was my fault for not specifically...

My room was in desperate need of a renovation, stayed in a room with 2 double beds, wi-fi didn't work. Hotel is in good location just across the street from Harbor, and I can't say enough about how wonderful the staff was! From my early check in request that was granted and every encounter I had with staff was great...

This is good spot if you are on the coast and need to find a place to stay for a reasonable price. It is not modern or fancy but beds were comfortable enough. It was not extremely quiet so do not plan on sleeping in. Clean rooms even if they were a bit dated. The bakery / cafe across the...
