  • Family with children

    Owner was super nice, rooms are nice and clean, well equipped with everything we needed. Will certainly stay again. Thank you so much!!!

  • Group of friends

    Great for the price. Allowed me to book a single night on a weekend during busy season. The bathroom was beautiful and clean and it was within walking distance of the beach and city center.

  • Family with children

    Convenient place to stay while driving south to Solvang then San Diego from San Francisco, Carmel and Hearst Castle

    The continental breakfast wasn't worth much

  • Older travelers

    Close to freeway and beach.

    Electric outlets did not work. Had to unplug Microwave and other uses as needed for one outlet that worked. Said would fix, no response. Needed more coffee for daily use, two cups not enough for three people.

  • Couple

    Big room to be a motel, nice tv and they have a swimingpool. Good location to city and beach

    Just muffin and donaut for breakfast

  • Family with children

    The location was the best thing going at Ocean Palms. It was right on the main road through town and near dining and shopping. The rate was good, but I could have done just as well at a Motel 6.

    The beds were noisy (the squeaked) and uncomfortable. The linens were well-used and threadbare. Some of the towels/washclothes had holes in them and were stained. They did not smell good either. The door was warped and took a strong shoulder to open.

  • Older travelers

    The Hotel staff was comprehensive with my mistake of date reservation and found a solution to resolve it

  • Older travelers

    For our cycling activities, dining, walking, shopping, walking on the beach, watching the sunset,we did not have to get in the car and drive. All was available from our room. Room was very clean, good tv, not much noise.

    We reserved a king bed and we were put in a room with two full beds.

  • Couple

    The price

    Road noise. I also had trouble being understood by Bob the manager - his wife is nice though

  • Older travelers

    under $100 and you can walk to the beach! right off 101, but room was quiet at night.

  • Couple

    I'm not sure I enjoyed myself there, but after a few days on the road and hot shower was nice

    The walls were so extremely thin, we could hear the couple next door making love. There was no co air climate control. You could hear the highway at night.

  • Couple

    The location. 3 blocks from the beach.

    The room was dirty, holes in the sheets, WiFi didn't work, week old pastries for breakfast. heat control in the room was unregulated.

  • Couple

    Room was clean and staff were friendly.

    Don't expect a continental breakfast. Breakfast consisted of muffins and coffee/tea in the Motel reception with nowhere to sit. The Motel served our purpose as a base from which to travel, but do not expect to be near the beach.

  • Couple

    The room was booked because it had a refrigerator & microwave & I presumed a coffee maker as all others we have been in had one. There were was no coffee maker & no cups of any sort in the room , even to drink water from, which is the only hotel in 3 weeks on the road to not even supply a plastic cup!

  • Family with children

    Very friendly staff at reception - a young Indian lady who gave me plenty of advise regarding restaurants (Rosa's was good!!) , factory outlets etc etc.. Also the fact that the rate included breakfast - even it was 'only' pre-packed muffins, scones etc, orange juice and coffee. As we are bot Europeans, this was plenty for us as we did not want to have huge American breakfasts every day.

    Nothing at all! We only stayed for one night on a 2 weeks trip along the coast.
