From the on line photos outside, i just did NOT think i would be very impressed. it was much more modern, clean & larger than i expected. CANNOT BEAT LOCATION! Literally out door, cross tiny street & WALLAH! there is the beach :) Parking was FREE & easy in garage. Lady in charge ... working her butt off, but so... More

This is some kind of best kept secret.... Friendly staff, rooftop patio, good views, super comfy bed..... shower is huge! You could hose down a surfboard in there.... bring a smaller vehicle as the parking spots are slender. If you are on a special diet (Gluten free here) bring your own breakfast and snacks.

My husband and I enjoyed our 2 night stay (check in 7/12/15) and was very impressed with Jay who assisted us from the front desk throughout our stay with all our needs and also Debbie for her Management skills. Room had partial ocean front view (208) and steps away from the beautiful Sunset Beach, roof top terrace for coffee and... More

We stayed 2 nights prior to a roller hockey tournament. If we’d have known how great the hotel was, we would have spent the entire week here rather than with the rest of the team at the Hyatt Anaheim for the other 4 days. The manager, Debbie, is so sweet and friendly and made the trip perfect. The beach was... More

To be honest when we booked this room online we thought it was to good to be true, Free parking, free wifi, super close to the beach and a great price? We just knew there had to be something going on. Then we got there and what we found out what was going on. Awesome service! From the first interaction... More

The room was clean, basic and beds were comfortable. Close to the beach with not a lot of crazy tourists. Sunset beach is a much less crowded beach than the main Huntington Beach area. We had quite a few dolphin sightings!! If you want a good family place, this is it. It you want night clubs, surfing and touristy attractions,... More

This is a cute place to stay. The manager was very friendly and helpful. She was onsite and able to address any issues if needed. The room was clean, comfortable and the air was ice cold. Free covered parking, close to the beach and several restaurants in walking distance.

I give it 3 stars for location. The room was clean , but the outside area was tired and dirty. Worst of all, was a wedding party that no body bothered to shut up all night, as they drank, smoked, and partied on the communal roof top area. Management seemed to be absent, and or deaf.

Is it a Five Star Hotel? No, but neither is my budget currently. There has been a lot of work that has been put into this inn, and I take that into consideration from where it was then and now. The complete hospitality and consideration I was given, by Deb and her staff will have me make my way back... More

This hotel appears to be in the process of upgrading. It is a shirt walk from the beach but does not really have ocean views except from the roof top terrace. Hotel staff were nowhere to be found after we checked in. Room was big but is in need of some cosmetic touch ups. The towel rod was falling off... More
