Cheap and cheerful
The Sunbeam is a great budget hotel when you are looking for a one night stop off whist driving the Pacific Coast. Free WiFi was a real unexpected bonus.

Staff are friendly & helpful. The room given to me was old & needed to be refurbished. The drapes had holes & depending on the wind direction there were drafts under the door in the evening.

Though it is an older motel, the bed was very comfortable and everything was clean. The owners were very nice and even moved me to a different room when I thought the first room had a weird smell to it like a wet carpet. Very kind, cheerful and helpful.

Older property with older fixtures and furniture, but we'll kept and clean. Mostly, though, a great bargain in a great location.
