Nice rooms, beautiful view from your balcony. The continental breakfast really helps the wallet. I was here on business this trip but felt like i was on vacation too.I did not have the opportunity this trip to use the pool but others were using the pool and it look like every body was enjoying them selves there.

Found this hotel to be very nice and comfortable. Rooms are very roomy, the suites are great with kitchenettes. Pool/spa is clean and well kept. Breakfast was great. State Beach park is right down the street and very clean and family oriented. Close to I-5 and between various amusement parks.

Last month we had a great experience at this property (June 2014) but this latest visit was somewhat disappointing. We booked a king suite w/kitchenette to accommodate our two young grandchildren who traveled with us. Upon arrival we found a full trash can from the previous guests waiting for us under the kitchenette sink. In addition, there were no supplies... More

The hotel was just fine to be so close to Moonlight Beach. We had an ant problem and I am sure the staff would have found us a new room if we complained but we did not want to go through the hassle of packing everything up and moving rooms. I did have trouble connecting to the wireless which was... More

location...location..location.. just a few blocks up from Moonlight beach. This is not a very plush hotel, but clean and comfy. BIG rooms and very cozy beds, also a large balcony with great views. When we were there the restaurant was boarded up, wish it was open and functional... not too many really good places to eat close by. It's nice... More

My family & I stayed at this hotel because it was reasonably close to LEGOLAND and very close to the beach. The stairwells were dark and the carpet hadn't been vacuumed in a long time, dirty outside (needs a good pressure wash), we had sugar ants, the water pressure was warm to hot when I showered with my daughter after...

I have stayed at this hotel 1-3x per year for the past 7 years. It gets steadily worse with the staff, service, cleanliness, and wear and tear of the hotel. I have stayed in Best Westerns all over the world and one of the reasons is because of the non-smoking policies. People inevitably will smoke at this hotel and I... More

Arrived very late, midnight, on our wedding night and had easy access to our room with an ocean view on the 2nd floor. Prior arrangements were made by our family and I didn't have any hassle with check in.
