The bathroom door stuck horribly,... More

Wish I had checked tripadvisor before I booked! We stayed here years ago and it was very nice. Lovely oceanfront rooms. Now it's just a tired, dirty, rundown hotel. When I complained about the disgusting floor in the bathroom and the fish smell I the frig, the women at the desk said she would pass the info onto housekeeping. Guess... More

This was our second time back to the Commander Hotel. Our first stay was 13 years ago and this place has really taken a dive. Prior to booking again we did read the reviews and were warned but did not listen. The rooms are very outdated. The smell in there...ugh.. They spray something everyday after they clean your rooms and... More

We have stayed at the Commander several times . Our last stay we were there for 2 weeks. The staff is amazing . We always go around Labor Day and stay there for 10 days to 2 weeks. The people at the front desk are terrific and the staff is both friendly and accommodating. We always get the same Oceanfront... More

I agree with the last review I read! I had the nicest experience with the staff. We had no problems but all of our communication with our housekeeper and anyone else in the office was very nice and welcoming. Whoever is training the employees cares very much about the guests being greeted and happy. Thanks to the manager! Your staff... More

We went on a spring trip to OC in April and stayed at the Commander Hotel. Adorable hotel with lots of history, offering a GREAT price that time of year. The only problem that I had was that the beds weren't very comfy. My Daughter, who is a fan of everything "Vintage" absolutely loved staying here. We had an issue... More

I paid $300/night for an oceanfront suite to watch the OC Air Show this year and the view was great. Just a block off show-center, we could hear the announcer and see almost everything (the north view is obscured due to the angle of the building itself, of course, unless you're on the very end). No complaints there and the... More

We stayed here overnight this past weekend and it was an awesome experience! We stayed in a Cabana Suite which over looks the very nice pool, but from our room we could see the ocean to the left and the bay to the right. Going to the beach was a breeze as all we had to do was walk through... More
