Top 10 Value Hotels
Central Coast (CA)
A good-value oceanfront motel near Morro Bay.
In Cayucos, a quiet coastal town not far north of Morro Bay, this pet-friendly motel is set right on the beach. In fact, you can stroll right from your room outside onto the sands. The property has been recently refurbished, making it even more of a bargain. Every guest room is painted in soothing neutral tones and is furnished with a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, cable TV and VCR, and a small table and chairs. Upstairs rooms have private balconies, while those downstairs enjoy direct access to the beach. More expensive deluxe rooms come with a separate sitting area, as well as a gas fireplace in a few cases. Some rooms have views of the Pacific and the pier, while others face the mountains. Wireless high-speed Internet is available throughout the property, which is a bonus. Rates include not only a continental breakfast, but also afternoon snacks. Make reservations as far in advance as possible.
