I stayed at ESJ for 4 nights with my friend. Prior to staying here I read about how the hotel is outdated, falling apart, etc. Yes it's old, but it's actually kind of cool. The lobby is retro and looks like it's from American Hustle. The room was suitable. Nice comfy bed, great view of the ocean, AC, cable tv,... More

Roaches all over the room, the air filter was dirty, the pillows had fungus. The hotel management said they had 120 check ins for the day and that they didn't had a full housekeeping personnel. Definitely would not recommend this hotel. It should be a 1 star hotel.

The facility was clean. Rooms and lobby are dated. Need to go through the garage to get to the beach. Can't go directly from the beach to the pool. This is an old apartment buidling. Staff is extemely friendly and helpful.
