An enjoyable stay,

Nice large room. One of the few motels that have sufficient lighting and furniture so that you can sit and read. Also very important to me is how quiet it was at night. Rooms on both sides of me were occupied and yet I didn't hear any noise all evening. Nice breakfast with lots of choices and adequate seating. My only negative comment is that there is virtually no landscaping and every room has a view of the parking lot. But overall I enjoyed my stay.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Found a nice shopping center at the town center at Broadway and Main. There's also a museum of flight but I didn't have time to see it. Maybe next time.

Exception Stay

I've stayed before and will continue to stay. Everything is great there! I love that they are pet friendly...not the easiest thing to find when traveling. Staff is friendly, even customers seem friendly, what more can you ask for?

Boring and sad place

Friendly staff, good breakfast, clean room. But the decoration of the room is mismatching and ungly: 3 different styles of furniture, lamps. 5 different ugly style of tiles (and the guy who did the joins was obviously doing his first job!) in the bathroom and doors so thin that you think people are in your bedroomE . So even if it's clean, safe and ok, you don't feel like it.

A few GREAT steakhouses not far away: Jocko's in Nipomo, Far Western Tavern in Guadalupe (really excellent Sunday breakfast with hot, fresh home made biscuits). Scheduled to move to Orcutt in September after 53 years in the current location. Also, try Swiss for steaks and a broader menu.

Sufficient

I was there for only one night to watch a baseball tournament. The staff was friendly, and the room was clean. Very basic, but sufficient for my needs. There's nothing fantastic about it, but nothing horrible either.
