This is a great place for the value traveler. Walk to everything. Lots of food and activities very close. Super friendly people at the desk and around the hotel. Baja Peppers is good, but I miss Spencers.

I have been staying here since 2010; you cannot beat the price, location (10 minute walk to the marina), or staff. Everything here is perfect. They recently did updates to the hotel which is cool because it shows they are invested in the hotels success as well as keeping the patrons happy and impressed. Absolutely no complaints, never had a... More

I love this place, always clean, friendly great rates and location. Last New Years, however, I was bothered by the groups cooking outdoors, hanging their laundry all over the place and stringing lights, rearranging patio furniture etc. For the first time in ten years of staying there, I really felt like I was staying in a campground, not a hotel....

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 8 nights in April over Easter Weekend. The hotel was completely full with locals celebrating the holiday. They were up partying, banging on doors, moving furniture around until 8 in the morning. If you stay here over Easter Weekend, and want to sleep, I recommend earplugs. Other than that, the hotel was in... More
