I would recommend this to people looking to hang out at the beach , not much else. It's an old surf motel along PCH, and it feels that way! The rooms are ok, I guess, but we also had the"upgraded" room... Not sure about the others

RUN! This is the worst hotel we have ever seen. We call it the Bates Motel (from the Alfred Hitchcock film "Psycho"). False advertising on the internet. Diametrical opposite of a Shangri-la. We booked a nonsmoking king with fridge. There was cigarette smoke in the room, the bed was a double, and the fridge was nonfunctional. The air conditioner sounded... More

Okay.. so I booked the room because of the price and was on short notice. So I started looking at the other reviews and said oh great... Wife said lets give it a chance besides everything else was double if not triple the price. At first look I had my doubts. We got there had to go find someone to... More

Nice management, convenient location, we stayed over last Saturday night; attended an event at Doheny Beach a mile north during the day. Very safe, across the road and railroad tracks from the beach. Was told original building was from the 1930's and that Marilyn Monroe and Charlie Chaplan had visited long ago. Now a bit in need of maintenance, but... More

Well, after reading all these negative reviews, I was a little skeptical about reserving here and traveling across country and end up hating it. BUT.....It was great... I arrived late, door was locked, but I rang the doorbell and he quickly appeared...I felt bad..I think I woke him up... We did our paperwork, gave me my key to Room 11,... More

This is not a place for the light-hearted. If you don't plan on spending anytime at the hotel then have at it. Otherwise stay away. Rooms are stuffy, AC very noisy, coffee is crap and they are not very clean. I can't believe they get away with advertising a breakfast. Very run down less the bathroom which was recently remodelled.... More

Me and my other half travel often for business and pleasure, and I have got to say that this place is by far the worst hotel we have ever stayed in! Office smelled of curry and smelly feet, followed by them charging our card twice for the room. After arriving at our designated room 14 the key did not work.... More

I found my experience at this inn delightful, it was so nice to stay in a original hotel, I found out from the locals that it was the first on this stretch of PCH. The beds were comfy, bathrooms clean, mini fridge, microwave, coffee pot were great, I started calling this my little apartment !! I brought comforts from home,... More
