Good facility with better than average rooms. Location on Pacific Coast highway good but ask for a room away from the highway. Although hotel has a non smoking policy we could smell cigarette smoke in the public areas.

The stay was okay for the short amount of time we were in town. I would consider staying again. It was a bit crowded waiting for the elevator with the cleaning staff coming in and out also with their cleaning carts. I am not able to take steps since I am in a wheelchair which made some waits rather long.

We had a nice big room with 2 qns and a sofa sleeper, enough to fit our 2 teens and pre-teen comfortably. Breakfast was so-so, but good enough. We could see a bit of ocean from our balcony, and though located right on the main drag, it was quiet in the room at night. We had a blast at Doheny... More

We've stayed here the last 3 years for an event & have not been disappointed yet! Staff & cleanliness are awesome! The location is easy to find & close to where we needed to go. The front desk has menu's from local restaurants that deliver making it very easy when we didn't want to go out

I love how this hotel is conveniently located within 10 to 15 minutes away from wonderful spots. In my 3-night visit, I've visited Ladera Ranch, San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano and Dana Point all conveniently. I especially enjoy driving through CA 1 and get a glimpse of the ocean. Best Western is also no entirely expensive plus it's dog-friendly!

We liked this area and room so much we decided to stay another evening. The room was quiet, large and two TV's! Walking distance to many shops and even a nice view even though on the PCH. The morning breakfast had a nice selection of hot choices including egg white patties and an automatic pancake maker, which I had never... More

We are very pleased with the comfort, peace and quiet of this hotel. Hotel staff could not have been nicer. The hotel offers free Wi-Fi, free breakfast, a nice pool. The beds were very comfortable. Parking is $10/day with free in/out (i.e., do not charge you every time you leave), and a relatively nominal charge for presumptive incidentals. Overall, very... More

Friendly staff, Convenient location, Healthy Breakfast choices, and a Good Price all made our stay a pleasant experience. Our room was very clean and quiet. We walked to restaurants and the Harbor. We have stayed here previously and would return again.
