    Clean, Laid Back.

    Walking distance to the beach which is the best part. Rooms are a little small but manageable. I had an upstairs room with my two dogs and at first wasn’t sure about it but turned out to be nice being able to leave the balcony door open for them to go sit outside if they wanted. Large grass area near pool which is hard to find in the area. For a dog friendly hotel, definitely recommend. Restaurant on site has dog friendly patio.

    A positive experience!

    We spent a couple nights here with our gal and we had a great time. Large, easy to access grassy area around the pool and the beach is right across the highway.

    Great location

    This was our first experience at a pet friendly hotel, and we enjoyed it very much. Surprisingly there weren't a lot of dogs barking, but in fact our stay was pretty quiet, aside from a few fireworks on the 4th of July. Thanks!!

    Clean, friendly, relaxed roadside motel

    This place exceeded our expectations. We stopped in after a long drive on a holiday weekend, with no plans on where we would end up. This place was very clean, comfortable, friendly and welcoming to us and our dog. It is a classic roadside motel but well kept, with all rooms looking out across highway 1 to the ocean, and a completely unexpected but unbeatable saturday night karaoke in the lounge that will please any fan of a lynchian roadhouse scene. We had a blast, and a great nights sleep, and would absolutely come back.
