Welcome to the Seaside Motel

Seaside Motel in Cayucos, CA, is a family-owned, family-friendly vacation retreat. One of the few magical places left where time moves slowly, and you’re expected to also.
A guaranteed easy remedy for the fast lane.

Tiny Cayucos is a haven for surfers, fishing and water sports enthusiasts. Yet, artists, beachcombers and city-dwellers escaping from busy urban areas have fled to the Seaside Motel, for years. Non-surfing visitors will find a host of antique shops, restaurants, and taverns along the “old California” main street. The long, uncluttered, white sandy beach is home to the Cayucos pier—built in 1875—and beloved by sandcastle builders, sunbathers, and romantics.

Our remedy for what ails most people is simple: at the Seaside we recommend plenty of rest, strolls down long lovely beaches, sampling of great food and fabulous local wines, and reading a good book while the great Pacific Ocean is aflame with sunset colors … especially during the fall and winter months. Explore wineries, art galleries, Hearst Castle, Piedras Blancas Lighthouse, and leisurely dine at local four-star restaurants or seaside cafés. Whatever you need during your stay, we are always nearby to help and to offer suggestions about wonderful, hidden-away places to explore. – Rick and Rebecca Roquet



Each room at the Seaside Motel is individually decorated, each with it’s own unique character and decor. Rooms are available with king-sized beds, double queen beds, kitchenettes and multiple-room suites. click here to see photos of all the rooms.

In and Around Cayucos

Halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, quietly sitting between the Pacific Ocean and the rolling hillsides of open ranch land is what some people call the last of the California beach towns — Cayucos.
