Motel Great-Past Guests lacked respect
The Sea Horse Motel was most courteous when I made reservations by phone. I very much appreciated knowing exactly which room we would have and being able to view pictures online prior to confirming the reservation. There were no glitches in checking in. That was great since we were exhausted from a 10 hour drive.
We appreciate the pet friendly policy but were very saddened to see how many people evidently take advantage of that policy and don't honor the very few rules. And the rules are definitely very few and very easy to follow. Simply - pick up the poop and don't leave animals in the room or allow them to bark. Can't get much easier than that. However, we found poop everywhere on the grass. So much so, our dog refused to use the areas and we had to walk blocks to find a less "infested area" and yes, we did pick up poop! The couch in our beautiful oceanfront unit was shredded from cats clawing the arms. The doors were gouged from pets locked up in rooms and scratching to get out. Would previous guests allow that to happen in their own home? We do NOT at all blame this hotel or the owners for this. You can't throw out a couch just because a cat shredded the arms. As a guest who treasured the ocean breeze and the tremendous ocean front view, I'm just begging anyone who stays here with a pet to respect the facilty and be appreciative that they don't even charge extra for pets. Please don't abuse the privilege of pet friendly rooms which often times are hard to find or afford.
I do agree with the previous review that it would be nice to have wider parking stalls. I know the price of the land is at a premium BUT consider widening the parking stalls by a foot or so even if you lose one spot. We don't appreciate doors opening on the side of our car and we attempt to not to do it to others. However to put any articles in a side door, it's impossible to fully open the door to load clothes or items with the stalls as narrow as they are now.
Beyond my above comments, this lodging was a peaceful retreat with an awe-inspiring view that helped to relax a travel weary body. We'd stay there again but hope that future guests start respecting pet friendly rules.
