We stayed in one of the cottages and were incredibly impressed with the staff, the ocean view from the kitchen, the clean rooms, and the large open amount of space we were able to have! It was perfect for myself and a couple close friends as we had more than enough space, each room was comfortable with large beds, and... More

My girlfriend and I reserved one of the side cottages, and it was great! We had an ocean view, and all the privacy we could want because we didn't share any walls with other residents. The firepits were great at night, listening to the waves and cooking smores. Couldn't have asked for much better of a night!

Spent 2 nights in room 210, had a gorgeous view! Amelia at the front desk was very helpful, will be back for sure! quick drive away from the town and the pier, the room was very clean, and the bed was very comfortable.

The hotel was average. Room was alright. The view was ok. The staff was super friendly and nice. No beach access...that was a bummer. The room was not that clean, but it worked. Not much to say. We slept, watched a little tv, but spent most of the time out of the room. Might or might not stay there again.... More

Dear Ihumpdorks, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I’m glad you found our staff to be super friendly and nice. Although we do not have direct beach access from our property, there is beach access two short blocks away. We look forward to having you stay with us in the future. Sincerely, Laura Lopez More

This looks like a nice hotel and the staff are quite nice, but they overcharged me (charged a different rate than the one listed online for that day and the one I thought I had booked), put us in a room with "known issues" despite being nowhere near full. there is a tiny little corner with a desk in it...

Location is by the beach, but there isn't direct beach access, you have to walk around to the next block. The rooms have been almost renovated, one part is quite nice and well done, but at least in the room we stayed in they hadn't got to the bathroom yet. The bathroom was functional, just old. It was clean, some... More

We had the King bed Ocean view room and this really had the "WOW" factor. Worth every penny with clean room and great facilities. Easy walking distance to the beach with safe bathing. A 5 minute drive to downtown and good restaurants. Great value for money.

Needed a place to stay on our drive down the coast of California. Rooms were spacious but bathroom was tiny. No air conditioning. Lots of road noise in rooms as very close to the highway. Looks over the beach but no actual beach access from hotel.

We stayed in a standalone cottage, 5 people in a 2-bed suite with kitchen, living room and only one bathroom. It was ok for a one-night stay. Fully equipped with anemities you would need. No A/C but when we were there the weather was great so it was just right. Furniture is quite old but it's a cottage. No access... More
