Hotel has recently been updated, it was very nice inside. Breakfast room was clean and organized - nice selection for breakfast. We got upgraded to a top floor room that was very spacious and a great view. Really enjoyed my stay.

Stayed here for one night as part of a road trip up the coast. The place was just right that. It was a clean adequate place to spend the night. It was nearby lots of places to eat and parking was included. The breakfast included came in handy when getting ready to leave early the next day.

Nice little hotel just off the highway and close to the beach. Very quiet and comfortable. Nice breakfast each morning. Parking was a bit limited, but was able to find a place each night. Exercise room only had one treadmill/one recumbent & one elliptical - it was busy in the morning, so no issue waiting.

We stayed here on or way to Knott's Berry Farms with our 14 and 11 yr old. I was a little nervous about the trailer park sitting next door but the area was quiet and hotel staff were very helpful! We had a good night's sleep. Room had a fridge, beds comfortable, would definitely stay again!

Stayed for a night whilst exploring the area. It was OK the rooms were nothing special but acceptable and clean. Free breakfast was OK as was the WiFi. Absolutely no issues from the neighbours but we did hear a fair bit of noise from the hotel car park and driveway to the side of the hotel.

This hotel offers good bed and breakfast services, has a warm and welcoming staff, it is very clean and has many good restaurants within walking distance as well as driving distance.The limited public transport system in Costa Mesa makes having a car a necessity and the hotel has excellent parking facility.
