We recently stayed here before attending a Chargers football game. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. The free computers and printers in the main lobby are nice. The front desk staff, in an effort to give us a room close to the pool, gave us a handicapped-accessible room. If you don't need this, don't get it. Everything just... More

Thanks so much for staying with us. We understand you have many options when traveling and appreciate that you chose us. I'm so sorry that we fell short in providing you with a great experience. While we aim for perfection, sometimes we fall short and I apologize. The cleanliness issue is unacceptable and has been addressed with the housekeeping department.... More

This property is completely what you would expect from the brand. Nice large rooms, well decorated, nice pool, hot tub and outdoor fireplace. Where they missed the mark is in the cheap thin towels and low quality bath amenities. Still, it's very close to the beach, which is 100 steps down a cliff.

We stayed here for one night for a wedding. The hotel has an updated interior and the room was very clean and nice. We loved the wet bar and mini-fridge. The pool could use a little updating but we still had fun swimming and taking a dip in the hot tub. The staff was very friendly and our rate (albeit... More

This has been one of our favorite getaways for years, but our last stay will cause us to reconsider. We always splurge for the large rooms with the in-room Jacuzzi. The positives: good walkable location near the Cedros design district and many restaurants. The beach is walkable, although the nearest access is a fairly long, steep staircase. It is about... More

I know what to expect from these properties, have stayed in a few in Southern California. Clean, good service, nice pool. But was surprised about 12 dollar parking fee. Otherwise, would return. Daughter and husband loved the pool and jacuzzi, and the cafe was convenient and open early.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel so much, we stayed one more night before heading to our final destination. Beach access is an easy 5-7 min walk down the street behind the hotel, or 8-10 mins by car down the road to another cool beach park. Beach access requires stairs down to the beach, since the beach...

We were told this place was across the road from the beach with easy beach access, the truth being it is across the road from the beach but they forget to tell you that you can't just cross the road and access the beach as there are other hotels and properties across the road that actually do face the beach...

I liked everything about this hotel. Nice location right off hwy 101, front desk folk were extremely friendly and informational, room was clean and the bed was super comfortable. It's like a big oval, with the rooms going around the outside, and on the inner courtyard they have a little bar, which had games on. I stayed on a Thursday... More

Since my last visit when the car parking was secure with a code, the park is now open with a $12 fee. This is not acceptable and will make me look elsewhere on my next trip. Apart from that the hotel was fine, rooms large and with microwave, staff helpful and friendly and the bistro serves reasonable food for the... More
