Avoid room 111. You can see it in the photos. It juts out from the main building and has a little deck on top of it. And that deck is the problem. The room and deck were not designed to work well together. Any tiny little footstep on that deck resonates throughout the (very tiny) room. At 1am we were... More

I chose this hotel for its location and its reasonable prices. The rooms are clean and the staff are friendly. There is no direct beach access but there are work arounds that can get you coastal access. The hotels location is a short walk to the towns main strip and the pier. The closest store for food and necessitates is... More

stayed here for one night on our way to LA, the welcome from the man on reception was great and he gave directions to some places we could walk to for dinner. The room was lovely with an great ocean view, and they left a lovely little welcome basket with popcorn and apples. All the facilities were great, brilliant shower... More

Unassuming little cottage and hotel rooms have their own distinct charm. Rangel was an amazing host, even allowing us to check in early as the room was ready. Great views. Clean room. Could use a microwave and a few utensils, but I believe it was so newly completed that it was still a bit under construction. Perfect location to walk... More

We arrived at 1:00 and after a 5 hour drive asked for early check in. Shari said no, check in is at 4. We asked to use a restroom and she directed us all the way to the public restrooms at the pier! Luckily a manager came in and said we could check in at 2! We had no air... More

They are clearly updated the entire property. There were new railings, everything looked freshly painted inside the room. New linens, new tv, nice dresser, clean carpets. Nothing looked worn, so everything might have been new or just very well taken care of. I loved having the windows allow the ocean breeze to come in. Dorm size refrigerator and snacks was... More

We were on a south-to-north coastal drive and dropped in without a reservation. The staff was very freindly and offered us the internet rate as drop in customers. The room was fine - clean and recently updated - though it is close to hiway 1 so there is some noise but was also away from downtown noise. The bed was... More

Here is an honest review from a mom on our stay. We loved the view! From our second story room we loved seeing such a beautiful sight.
