The best hotel in S.J for night life and beach area, but the rooms need to be upgraded ASAP, specially the mattress, I woke up with back pain every single morning, (not even in a $20 dollar Motel, you will find mattress so bad) Same for the Brest fast, not what you expect for a $25 Brest fast. Very good... More

This is a very nice hotel to stay for the value. The staff are helpful and the grounds very clean! It sits right on the beach and provides lounge chairs with umbrella free, but you need to arrive early if you want to get one. Best to stay over the weekend for activities. Party in the lobby is fun.

After my wife and I reported that bed bugs had bitten us we were sent to our rooms and told to wait for a housekeeping manager who didn't show up... More

It took house keeping 10 tens to come to the room with new... More

They have a dance cluub on site that draws a good crowd. The DJ was diappointing but overall a fun experience. There is alos a live band and DJ in... More
