This is by no means a 5-star hotel, but if you are looking for a room with a shower, comfortable bed, television, and an ocean right across the street, then this is your motel. The staff was very helpful and polite. The cleaning lady was also very nice and did a great job each of the four days that we... More

We have stayed several times over the last year while visiting our son. It may be an older motel but it is very clean and comfortable. Carrie and her staff are very accommodating and friendly. We park at the motel and never use a car once we are there. Everything is within walking distance and its very easy to get... More

This motel is very old, old carpets, noisy, poor sleep quality. Good for young kids on a party or surfers staying here on a budget. Staff unfriendly. If you are on a low budget still would not stay here.

Situated directly on PCH with the stunning sands of Huntington Beach just steps away, this place is a throw back to the 60's. No frills, just nice, sparse rooms, all with ocean views. Clean and convenient, just 4 blocks to Main Street and Huntington Beach Pier, the place is well maintained with on site parking. Morning coffee and sweets are... More

Great little place to stay if you like the beach and the beach is right across the street. Good restaurants nearby. Had a great time bodysurfing for the first time in 43 years. Wish we would of had more time to hang there. I definitely will go back.

We stayed 2 nights in 2 rooms. The location was perfect and the rooms had all we really needed for a beach stay. Nothing fancy but nice hot showers and comfortable rooms. Only thing we didn't like was the carpet was a bit dirty and got our feet dirty. Great customer service and good deal!

As other reviews point out, this hotel is a bit dated, but I found it to be clean and in a great location. The staff was super friendly. Being walking distance to downtown was what really made this a great, convenient place to stay. I'm a former HB resident who now lives in Denver, and make trips out to HB... More

This motel is nothing fancy and it is outdated, but it doesn't try to be more than that. I enjoy staying here because it reminds me of old Huntington before everything turned into a multi million dollar mansion and it was an affordable, laid back surf town with friendly people. The staff couldn't be more helpful or friendly. This is... More
