The hotel looked very nice from the outside and the interior was especially clean. The front desk staff were all very friendly and they were happy to greet us each time we pass through the lobby. We had breakfast in the hotel each morning (since we all loved it), but within walking distance of a block or two, there were... More

Everything closer was booked. This is only 8.1 miles from legoland. The room was nice but narrow, but not a problem since it had 30 or 40 foot high ceilings, which made it seem bigger. AC worked great, nice beds, nice big TV, mini fridge, coffee maker, hairdryer and a nice continental breakfast that had more than just danish and... More

I choose this property because of it's location and on the recommendation of a friend. I was attending a seminar and wanted to be close to water and the venue. Stone-step Beach is a close walk. Be aware there are a lot of steps! Because of that it is secluded and quiet. The hotel was an average room with decent... More

The hotel is walking distance from the beach so it's convenient. I like the free breakfast :simple but organized and well-stocked! Will definitely recommend to friends! There's free wifi, refrigerator, iron, hair dryer, microwave, coffee maker.

Overall a clean room and a comfortable bed. Staff was not trained in customer service. Coffee and juice machines were broken two of the three mornings. Carpet in the lobby stairway and hallway was filthy.

I had seen the good reviews on Trip Advisor so I thought I'd give it a try. We just needed a convenient inexpensive place to spend the night on our bike trip to San Diego. The hotel was clean and quiet and the staff was polite. The bedding and decor was pretty unexciting, typical budget hotel comforter and towels. I... More

We choose this hotel based on other reviews, and it lived up to its ratings. Our room was comfortable, updated, and very clean. It's an easy location for walking to restaurants and the beach. We had a room on the back side and it was very quiet. Breakfast was basic but adequate and well-presented.

We enjoyed walking to the beach and to local restaurants. The room was clean. The bathroom space felt small and the shower head was the lowest we'd ever seen. The air conditioner was a little noisy at night. The front desk people were friendly.
