Fordeler: That it was on the ocean. Restaurant at location.
Ulemper: Outdated furnishings. Handicapped room-stool in bathroom. Dried noodles splattered on wall by toilet. Weird odor. No robes in room as indicated on itinerary. Hot tub so tiny no opportunity to enjoy. $--- price + description doesn't = resort. BASIC motel

Fordeler: It's closeness to Hearst Castle is hard to beat and it's right on the coast so great access to the beach.
Ulemper: Had an ocean view room, but the windows were so dirty it was hard to see the ocean.
Fordeler: The view is amazing!
Ulemper: Carpet stained, sand in the chairs
Fordeler: I loved that this beach-front hotel provides eucalyptus infused wipes for your feet...very thoughtful of the hotel.
Ulemper: While looking for my shoes I noticed the rug underneath the beds had a thick coat of dust balls...indication that rug under beds had not been vaccumed in quite a while.

Ulemper: Could use new carpeting.
Fordeler: Bed/pillows were very comfortable. Firepits and sunset at the beachfront was beautiful. Ease of the onsite restaurant was awesome. Staff at the front desk & in the restaurant were friendly and helpful.
Ulemper: Wall was peeling in the bathroom - that is my only complant (not that big of a deal but thought I'd mention it, as it was my reason for 9/10 in the cleanliness category). Made it look a little less clean, though it is probably due to shower moisture.
Fordeler: The room was lovely, we made a fire, listened to the crashing waves and had a very nice romantic stay. Was very difficult to rise from the very comfy bed. Hope to return!
Fordeler: Location on the ocean.
Ulemper: No air conditioning. Needs cosmetic update.
Fordeler: It is located on an ocean bluff. It has rooms with ocean view and patios. Beautiful and relaxing. Free for pets. Very reasonable minibar prices
Ulemper: Small criticisms...needs more wastebaskets, Kleenex boxes and an extra phone.
Fordeler: staff, breakfast in the restaurant and location on the beach
Ulemper: the heat did not work, when we tried to get assistance, no one came; the furniture was dated and not functionally coordinated (e.g...the bedroom chairs placed the sitter at chin level with the circular table); we were overcharged by $100
Ulemper: Whole night I could not sleep lots of bad bugs in the room.
Fordeler: Great access to the beach front.
Ulemper: The furniture was a bit dusty , headboard, the chairs and the rug.
Fordeler: The location was great, it was really peaceful and nice to be able to walk to the beach from our hotel. Staff was friendly && the liquor store nearby was convieniet. Overall price was great, would stay again
Ulemper: The Wi-fi was inconsistent, wouldn't stay connected to our phones for long, in and out service that kept turning off. There wasn't really that many kid friendly tv shows by the end of the night and midday.

Fordeler: Competitive price and great location. Restaurants nearby.
Ulemper: A little dated and very little hot water in bathroom sink.
Fordeler: We went with another couple. King room with balcony. Awesome stay. Clean, quiet, beach right across hwy...easy access. Would recommend and definately stay again.
Fordeler: Hands down, the best value in the area by far. Makes sense why they have so many positve reviews, great stay all around. Location is great. Restaurant/bar on site. Rooms very clean. Can't be beat at that price.
Ulemper: As many have said before, the only thing that would really help would be AC units in the room. It was 80 when we were there, and the rooms felt stuffy in the afternoon even with windows open.
Fordeler: The bed was like sleeping on a cloud! For $60 AWESOME! !
Ulemper: Nothing everything was good.

Fordeler: Konkurransedyktig pris og flott beliggenhet. Restauranter i nærheten.
Ulemper: Litt utdatert og svært lite varmt vann i vasken på badet.
Fordeler: Clean, cheap, added bonus of fridge and microwave! Stupid close to Hearst Castle
Ulemper: Internet kinda fritzy, even after calling the tech people.
Fordeler: Staff were friendly, location was great, across the road from the beach,
fridge and coffee maker in the room, comfortable and clean bed.
Ulemper: The curtains were hard to keep closed completely, the Direct TV had no paper guide and was hard to browse through, the hot tub spa was over chlorinated and not very hot.

Fordeler: it was a good location and cheap.
bathrooms were not that clean, toilet was weird, coffeemaker was broken.

Fordeler: -Location was perfect
-Room was clean and comfortable
-It was nice to have some outdoor space
Ulemper: -Pool area could use some upgrades

Fordeler: The room was updated. The bed was comfortable. The staff was pleasant. Excellent value.
Ulemper: The bathroom was clean, but the shower had mold on the door.
Fordeler: After staying in somewhere really basic for the past 3 nights in San Francisco, this was a welcome change. I thought the place was excellent. I only stayed for one night though, so I didn't get chance to use all the facilities. At this price though, you really can't go wrong here.
Fordeler: Walking distance to the beach (but then again all the hotels there are about the same distance away).
It was cheap...
The bed was comfortable.
The guy in the lobby that works late was nice.
Ulemper: The walls are paper thin, you can clearly hear your adjacent neighbors conversation/snoring.
The height of the shower head is the same as my chin and I'm only 5'10".
There was a used shampoo bottle, that I'm guessing was used by the previous guest, in our shower.
We stayed on the first floor and we could hear every step from the guest in the rooms directly above us. We can also hear, very loudly, people walking upstairs on the balcony walkway.
My 120 pound girlfriend sat on the plastic toilet seat and it either became loose or broke somehow. Not sure if it was previously already broken or was just not put in correctly.
Furniture is probably older than me.
Fordeler: Rent, billig, ekstra bonus i form av kjøleskap og mikrobølgeovn! Dumme i nærheten av Hearst Castle
Ulemper: Internett er nesten fritzy, selv etter å ha ringt til teknisk folk.
Fordeler: Staff were friendly but did not communicate well.
Ulemper: Found pincher bugs in bed and bathroom floor. Bathroom had broken toilet seat and the fridge was frozen over. Very hot in rooms no air conditioning only a fan so you had to keep windows open for cool air and you could hear the freeway all night. Not worth the price of the room very poor.

Fordeler: A simple motel with comfortable beds. Location was perfect for a visit to the Hearst castle. Very convenient. The gentleman at the front desk we arrived the evening prior was very friendly and helpful.
Ulemper: Parking situation was poor. There aren't enough spaces for the hotel guests. Also the complementary breakfast voucher is a waste of time. The restaurant that is associated with the hotel that excepts the breakfast voucher has the worst service I've seen in a long time. Don't even waste your time getting the complementary breakfast and less you'd like to sit around for a while and get a poor quality danish and cold coffee while you're waiting for your milk to arrive.

Fordeler: Very close and convenient to the Hearst Castle and the beach. Everything in the town is super close though.
Ulemper: Wasn't special in any way. Just another motel by the water, could have stayed in any random motel with th same experience.
Ulemper: Breakfast was not great; need protein like eggs please. Also, better coffee would be good.
Fordeler: Staff was courteous and quick. Simple and clean, recently updated floors were a nice surprise. Great access to Big Sur and Hearst Castle area. Slept here only, did not have the breakfast, nor did I use the TV.
Ulemper: Would stay here again but would try to avoid 1st floor, as the guests above us ran back and forth like they were having a relay race at dawn -- not the hotel's fault however.

Fordeler: Location, clean
Fordeler: Would definitely stay again

Fordeler: Beliggenhet og pris
Ulemper: Frokosten var ikke bra; trenger proteiner som egg. Vær så snill! Også, bedre kaffe vil bli bra.
Fordeler: Location is great. Just a few minutes from Hearst Castle and Elephant Seals, plus walking distance to the beach. Continental breakfast included.
Ulemper: It's a Day's Inn, so you get what you pay for. The facilities are older and worn, shower looked extremely used, probably should've been replaced 10 years ago. Wouldn't want to stay there for more than a day or two.
Fordeler: Conveniently located. Room was decent and comfortable. Person at counter upon arrival was helpful and nice.
Ulemper: Breakfast was minimal and took long to restock.
Fordeler: Beds were comfortable, windows open, room was clean: my top three. Spa was a great bonus. Location near Hearst Castle cannot be beat.
Ulemper: Not much to do nor many choices for dining near by, which is not the hotel's fault, but do plan ahead and eat in Cambria or further south if coming from that direction.

Fordeler: Clean, spacious rooms with comfortable king bed.
Ulemper: WiFi signal was weak and low bandwidth.
Maid walked in the room without knocking.
Breakfast food ran out. Oatmeal was undercooked.
Fordeler: We enjoyed staying in the Days Inn. The room was clean and big. We felt very comfortable to sleep in. The room price was reasonable. It's closed to the Hearst Castle. We had an impression to live in this place.
Fordeler: Close to Hearst Castle - super convenient in that sense.
Ulemper: Pretty much everything else. Cell signal is terrible here if you're on AT&T so I was really relying on their WiFi to get connected. It's terrible. No elevator so if you're on the second floor keep that in mind. Ocean view? I mean, I guess technically. Don't pay extra for that. Front desk guy completely vanished in the morning - I needed him to transfer a call that was coming in. Wet carpet near the nightstand. Musty smell from the window unit. Look this is basically a $59 hotel masquerading as a $150 hotel because it can. Free markets and all. Just go in with the right expectations and you'll be fine.
Fordeler: The location is great for the price, and we really did love the waffle machine at breakfast. While there was not a huge breakfast selection, my boyfriend and I were more than satisfied. The indoor spa was pretty nice, clean, and bubbly. The gentleman at the front desk was very accommodating when we arrived close to the spa's closing time and allowed us a little time to relax after our long drive. As for the room, it's a great value for the price. The bed was pretty comfy and there were enough pillows and blankets for the two of us. The heater worked well, and there is a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker as well. For the price, you don't expect luxury, but you at least are getting a great value for your stay.
Ulemper: The ice machine was broken the entire stay, but no one ever did anything to repair it, even though more than one guest complained (and the solution given to get ice was to retrieve it from the bar next door... yeah because I am really going to walk in to a bar I don't know in an area I've never been just to ask for ice!). The water level in the spa was a little too low so the jets were causing the water to spout up super high, but if you sat right in front of it, you could block it. And I was slightly concerned about the cleanliness after opening up the fridge and finding someone else's food was still in there... yuck.
Ulemper: Could use updating. Quality of towels was horrible:thin, hard, scratchy.
Fordeler: The hotel was close to shops and of course the beach! The woman at the front desk was very kind. Our room was a bit dated but very clean.The pool area was clean and well kept. It was very quiet and peaceful.
Fordeler: Good location. Good staff
Fordeler: Staff was very friendly
Ulemper: Very basic. Not super clean. Stains on walls and sheets. Definetly needs some upkeep and deep cleaning. Was glad we were only spending one night here. Quite expensive for what it was.

Fordeler: The hotel is trying to make a lot of improvements, the breakfast was great and fresh, but what made the hotel stand out was how nice the hotel staff was. They were really nice and friendly. Very child friendly too.
Ulemper: I think there were old comments about towels, which they seems to have replaced. Overall a great experience.
Fordeler: It's location was convenient and the prices were reasonable. Room was pretty spacious and sunny.
Ulemper: not sure the bathroom ws properly cleaned. there were hairs in the tub.
Fordeler: Just a place to sleep
Ulemper: Hot tub broken. Pool closed. Poor service. Dirty rooms
Fordeler: the location is just okay!
Ulemper: water has some smell in it. Breakfast should have more options
Fordeler: Good Location
Fordeler: Location to Hearst Castle. Hotel would have received 10 for all, but price so high due to location that hotel did not meet price expectation of the room.
Fordeler: Good Location, breakfast has warm entry. staff are very attentive. The back building is very quite. Good choice for a family.

Fordeler: It was a nice and clean room. Located conveniently beside CA-1 and only 10-minute drive to Cambria.
Ulemper: Our room was located in corner of the building. Wi-Fi was extremely not stable. Internet was merely unavailable in room. In breakfast room and lobby Wi-Fi was good.
Fordeler: Could not shower as bath water was a horrible dark yellow, so bad I took a picture. Saunas water was cold until evening even though it was supposedly open from 9 till 9. Coffee maker did not work. However beds were comfy. Needs some work! Stayed here 5 years ago and it was much nicer. No continental breakfast . Won't stay here again.
Ulemper: Workers playing loud Spanish music in the laundry room with door open early in the morning, we could hear it in our room several doors down.
Ulemper: Sheets and blankets didn't fit the bed and were old and wrinkled. Pillows were smelly. Toilet paper was stiff and unusable.
Fordeler: The kids loved the indoor swimming pool. The parents loved the hot tub. We were pleasantly surprised that the family room had a microwave and refrigerator.
Ulemper: Need to update the website that the family room has a refrigerator and microwave.
Fordeler: I like the location of this inn
Ulemper: This inn is not really clean.
The tower has some yellow stain on it and our blanket has a big yellow spot, which looks like a stain from period blood that was not washed out completely. There is green mold on the shower tap. I dont require the inn to be modern and luxurious but it at least has to be clean.
Fordeler: Spacious room and very close to the beach !! My husband and I were very comfortable there with our 2 year old. We stayed for a week and appreciated having a fridge. HBO was nice to have as well.
Ulemper: The only complaint would be that the carpets could be cleaner. They need a carpet cleaner to run through more often. Other than that we had no complaints.
Fordeler: Very close to attractions, cheap
Ulemper: Walls so thin Other people's snoring woke me up. The slightest movement with upstairs neighbors sounded like the ceiling would cave in. Very noisy altogether. Otherwise not terrible.
Fordeler: The pool was nice
Ulemper: I could hear the people on the second floor walking back and fourth all night
Fordeler: Surprisingly nice considering the price. It was nice to have the pool and jacuzzi, and the room was clean.
Ulemper: WIFI did not work in the rooms.
Fordeler: all that's needed for a one-night stay on a budget.
Fordeler: Indoor pool area. Proximity to beach.
Ulemper: Staff would not accommodate request for 1st floor room even though only a few rooms were occupied at check in. No elevator so had to carry luggage up stairs and down outside deck. No breakfast without charge. Noisy between rooms--could hear conversations next door. Rattling bath fans in adjacent rooms could be heard all night.
