We booked this room just a few days before we went to OC. The room was clean and it was a plus that we had a ground floor room so we could get to the boardwalk and ocean from our porch. The pool area was nice as well. Like others have said, it must be the world's smallest bathroom, but... More

We recently utilized two connecting rooms on the fifth floor and really enjoyed ourselves. The rooms were very clean and they brought us plenty of towels,etc. when requested. We had an awesome view of the ocean and the accessibility of the boardwalk really was nice. I liked it also because we were near the end of the boardwalk and there... More
