We were extremely pleased with our stay here. We made last minute reservations here for a 3 night stay during summer, we chose this hotel based off its location and a family members recommendation. The exterior of the hotel and grounds were extremely clean, as was our room. The staff was friendly and above and beyond helpful with securing our... More

Room is on the large size and the bathroom has a double sink with lots of counter space. The pool is large with lots of seating outside with a restroom in the pool area. Able to see ocean and can relax although you have to be ok with bird sound and smell. The pelicans reside on the cliff that the... More

Peaceful setting on the cliffs. Hotel Rooms are quite nice. Beds wonderful and décor is quite nice. excellent view of the Ocean. (Birds are a little stinky though when the breeze blows in) Front Desk staff delightful. Breakfast is average, and very crowded. Staff tries very hard to keep up with demand.

We booked this hotel as a mistake, a year prior to this we stayed at the Best western on the cliff approx. 3000 feet away . On December 2014 they changed there name. So when I booked this hotel, I thought I was booking the hotel I stayed in last year, and what a difference. The hotel should be called... More

Our party of five stayed in a disabled access room due to the size of the party. Good view from the small ground floor balcony that overlooked the pool. Next door to the breakfast hall. Soft sheets and comfy beds. Breakfast was nice but not a lot of choice. Lots of birds knocking around so wouldn't recommend for those not... More

The full view of the ocean, from our room, is fantastic. The free breakfast, yummie! The pool and spa is so nice. I love the peace and quiet of the... More

I have never written a hotel review but had to for this place. The place is generally run down and you get what you pay for but the birds and the odor from the bird waste is awful. It's not the hotels fault as the bluff in front of the hotel is a protected bird sanctuary. It makes it miserable.... More

Booked an ocean view room for a family getaway. Room was comfortable and patio looked out on the ocean cove. I spent a lot of time on the patio and on the hammocks just watching the pelicans circle (they roost right there on the cliffs) and whales spout in the distance. Pool was warm and had plenty of seating &... More
