          The Dolphin Inn was close to downtown so we could walk to shops, restaurants, wine tasting and the beach.

          It was very old, the dishes were broken, and the continental breakfast was quite poor (all surgery items). After the first day, we actually bought our own healthy breakfast items. We stayed in a two-room cottage and would have liked a tv in the bedroom. Also, we did not have the two queen beds as advertised. We had a double bed and a single trundle bed. The hotel had old-style keys that identified the hotel and the room number. We were concerned about security should we lose a key. For that reason alone, we will not return.

          I liked the fact that it allowed pets. I also liked the fact that is in Cayucos. The room was clean.

          I was disappointed by the fact that the room seemed sadly neglected. The towel rack was very loose. There were holes in the wall and holes in the closet door that had very poor attempts at fixes. The King-size bed was very hard and uncomfortable. There was no clock in the room and no message alert on the phone. We will not stay there again.

          The hotel accommodated pets, and had a kitchenette.

          Would have liked to be ocean side.

        • Family with children

          Very disappointing. Hotel room seemed dirty and worn down. Claimed that there was continental breakfast, but that was not true. Low value, high price.

        • Single

          Much worse then the photos and the breakfast was a joke. They had cereal, vending machine sweet rolls and cookies. The bathroom was long and narrow with only about a foot between the bath tub and the wall. For $10 more I could have stayed in Cambria in a nice room by the water with a real breakfast.

        • Older travelers

          We arrived prior to check in time, and even though our room was not ready, we did get a key to access the room at a later time.

          The heater did not work in the room; tried adjusting the thermostat for the wall heater, it did not come on. Plus there were no instructions for turning it on. This town has a great number of foreign visitors, I can just imagine the confusion some would experience in staying here. The bathroom was very narrow making it difficult to get out of the bathtub; there is only approx 1-foot of space between the two. Sorry I would not recommend staying - especially for the 139.00 plus that we paid for one night!

          Front desk personnel very friendly and helpful. Location is in downtown Cayucos and convenient to restaurants and the beach.

          Motel is sort of outdated and could use newer decorations and appointments, although everything was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast is rather plain but probably ok for kids.

          Kitchenettes and location

          Ok for dumpy beach hotel but needs major repairs and upkeep, including necessary standard safety upgrades

          The dolphin is the least expensive motel in Cayucos. In the winter/ early spring the prices come way down and it is a good buy. In the summer prices go way up but still the cheapest in town and a block or so from beach/shops. Fridge/microwave/coffeemaker in room. Chairs outside each room. Quiet. Lots of Europeans stay there who are budget minded. Staff friendly. It's an old motor court no not tons of units. See if you can get a room w/ porch swing! Bathrooms have always been clean. No bedbugs!!

          The Dolphin is funky. If you can't do funky you will not be happy. Not enough hot water to take real bath. Noisy fridge (which I unplugged while in room). If you just want a place to sleep in between sightseeing its fine but if you are looking for a place to hang out (unless you just want to watch tv or read) you probably wont be happy. Free breakfast is minimal...no waffles here! Also they have a caveat on their site that your total bill may be more than posted on the booking invoice and mine was charged an extra $20.00.

          It was clean, conveiniant and inexpensive.

          Walls were so thin you could hear the people talking, plus lound TV.

        • Family with children

          Pet friendly and available kitchen. Bed was comfortable although the windows don't lock in the front.

        • Single
          5.0

          The location was good and the price was OK, but....

          ....the rooms are uncomfortable; mine, for instance, had no closet, if you can imagine that! And the cleaning service is frankly poor.

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          Very friendly staff.

          Carpet was very dirty and lock on door did not seem secure.

        • Older travelers
          5.0

          Heater not working, toilet lid broke, shower door broke.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Tha place, the kindness of the staff, decorations in the room.

          Poor breakfast and no space to seat for eating
