A big indoor hot tub, and wine and cheese evenings are two things that distinguish this hotel as a fun stay. It is a great value for the price. Only negative is it is easy to hear people coming and going (opening and shutting their doors), and showering and walking around in the room above you - could be a... More

Well if I was rating this old hotel against other old hotels I would give it a 4. If compared to all hotels I give it a 2. The Bellagio at s 5 and a new Holiday Inn express at a 4, then this best western is a 2. The Common areas were old and dirty. The room was surprisingly... More

If you know you are having a major renovation, I think it would be nice to mention on your site before we book. All the common areas were a disaster with doors blocked and yellow caution tape everywhere. That said, once finished, I'm sure the property will be much better. Room was clean and adequate but we could hear the... More

Thank you for your feedback. It was nice to know you enjoyed your stay with us. Our apologies for the ongoing construction. The flooring for the bottom floor should be completed within the next two days. Our hope is that you will return to check out the completed remodel.

Typical BW motel. Comfortable, clean, affordable. Love the afternoon wine, cheese & crackers, and they let you bring it back to your room. Room was adequate, nicely furnished, clean. Breakfast was very good, lots of choices. Wifi in the room worked well to check email & surf the web. Only drawback were the rude guests who were very noisy outside... More

Bathroom very clean. For breakfast made my own waffle in their machine. The Morro rock down the road in the ocean looks... More

The hotel and decor is dated but everything is clean and presented well. We were especially pleased that there were good reading lamps by the bed and there was black tea -- both regular and decaffeinated-- in the room. We've stayed at hotels for twice the price where we had to go to the car for a flashlight to read... More

Got this hotel on a hotwire reservation. After reading the reviews was a little dubious. At check in, Angela was by far the best part of the whole experience. Helpful, funny and went out of her way to accommodate us. Hotel itself is in need of an update but is clean. Queen beds are not very comfortable and comments about... More

Construction material in parking spaces. Limited very tight parking. Boarded up windows in front of building. Lobby area for food too cramped more than three and you bumped into each other. Missing windows not appealing. Small fan did not cool room so open window made cloths damp. For time of year rate was too high for quality.

Thank you for your feedback. We are in the beginning stages of a major remodel, hence the missing windows in the breakfast area which are now replaced with new ones. Also we are remodeling the breakfast area and the front desk area so that it won't be so crowded. Storage space is limited so we've had to use a parking... More
