My family loved this hotel. A group of 6 of us stayed here in 1 ocean front suite and two rooms that were closer to the front desk that had a living room and kitchen. It was more than enough room. The staff was great and beach was amazing. Been a little while since we stayed here but I've always... More

We booked for 2 nights and just couldn't bear staying for the second one. The room was hideous. Felt like I was in a bad college dorm from the 60's, with miserably loud neighbors. The carpet looked old and filthy, curtain between rooms was frayed. Creepy rust stains on railings and deck. The whole place feels damp and moldy. Just... More

Walking distance to all the places we wanted to go to. Clean and a great view. The beach was great nice place to go and relax. The bed was comfortable and the service was very helpful. The dinning next door was very good and the drinks refreshing.

Our family has been coming to this location every year for 25 years. It use to be called Vacation Village. In my opinion it has gone down hill the last several years and certainly not worth the $450 per night ticket price for the Fourth of July weekend. Our family had 6 rooms for 3 nights rented this year. I... More

Some tough reviews in here. I guess I can't blame them. I guess people here and in the state have major purchasing power. No it wasn't the flashiest hotel I've ever stayed in, but I can also say I've never stayed in one 10 ft off the Pac Ocean. The room was ocean side with a kitchenette. Small, but fine... More

Up front rooms are old, you get in the room and you see a noise canceled gift, so you get worried, it's needed because road noise is quite high, but this isn't as bad as the fact that rooms are connected and you listen your back door neighbors having sex, luckily my 2 boys are young enough to ask about...

The rough, meaning so many choices and unfamiliar territory. It wasn't long before we realized we had made the right choice in hotel. The departing guests were so complimentary of the hotel and the area. The hotel staff was friendly and informative. We asked if we could see the room before choosing one over the other and did. During our... More

We stayed here whilst on a 3 week road trip of California. I was celebrating my 30th birthday and what a place to celebrate we had a sea view room right on the beach front with the waves coming right up under the balcony. It was great apartment with a great view and feel to it. The room was very... More

This hotel is in a beautiful location and has an excellent staff. We really enjoyed going down to the beach and reserving our lounge chairs and umbrella for a day of soaking in the sun and surf. We didn't eat at the hotel but we did have drinks at The Deck. The deck was a great little beach bar right... More
