My husband was travelling for work and I got to come along, the rooms were nice, with large open patios outside, the pool was nice and the location was close to everything, all with one of he lower process in the area. Service was very friendly - I would definitely stay here again.

This motel is awesome! We have been staying here for over 35 years. Every time we return is like "coming home"...this place is very family oriented, clean, and quiet. The staff is super warm and receptive. Laine and David in the front office are very welcoming and friendly... We shall return in August!

Dear edwinroyv, Thank you for sharing your concern. Immediately after our conversation, I and our housekeeper checked the rooms. After not finding any unwanted visitors in the rooms, we phoned our pest control company to confirm. They were unable to locate any pests’. Our housekeeper noted that the room had a pet inside a couple of weeks earlier, so we... More

We stayed there in June 2014 and were very pleasantly surprised! Beautiful location, clean rooms, comfortable bed, good breakfast, friendly and helpful staff! When we first arrived we were unhappy because we had not been warned that the parking lot was torn out (therefore street parking - difficult to find - or free valet parking), but the valets were great!...

Had a wonderful visit - individually owned and you can tell that someone cares. Very clean, awesome breakfast, great pool, easy walk to beach and several delicious restaurants. Construction during our visit but with AC on it didn't bother us. Cool courtyards and lovely outdoor spaces. Will be back!

The initial impression was not very good, probably because of the work going on in the background...the former parking location I guess? They have free valet for now. Cars are parked across the street at an empty lot with a berry stand. I got a room in the inner courtyard so was not bothered by street noise. the room was... More

I really enjoyed our stay at this Holiday Inn Express. The property has an almost charming/cozy set up with pretty courtyards. The rooms open out to the courtyard which gives you casual in/out access that feels very homey. It had a lot of character and charm - didn't feel like your average big-box hotel chain. The room was updated nicely... More

This older but mostly updated hotel is situated close to the ocean, restaurants and shopping. The service is VERY good and they offered complimentary valet parking as their parking lot is undergoing construction. Typical Complimentary breakfast offered. The outdoor pool area is great with a nice loungers, tables & chairs and a hot tub. The biggest downfall here is the... More

Dear Shmoopie68, Thank you for your compliments on our staff, location and complimentary valet parking. I apologize for the uncomfortable evening hour disruption. Although we encourage our guests to utilize our many outdoor courtyards and terraces, we certainly don’t want that usage to be bothersome to others. Please contact me at 858.454.7101.

We stayed here for three nights at the beginning and end of a trip to Mexico. As a large group (over 50) we could have been a nightmare but the hotel was prepared and things were very straightforward. Our rooms were large, more like a suite. The showers were wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed the pool and outside terraces. Breakfast... More

We stayed 2 nights, then 2 days later 4 nights. The rooms were nice, clean, but the bathroom sink areas were small; one was in the toilet/shower area which did not work well for us.
