The room was neat and clean with a nice court yard. Right across from the beach with plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance makes it a great location. The only down fall was that we could hear everything from the people next to us to the music locals were playing by the beach from our room

The location does not get much better, especially for the price. Hotel is clean/well kept, just a bit old. Rooms are small. All in all if you want a place to sleep that's close to the beach, it's perfect.

This place was ok. After coming from Manchester Grand Hyatt paying about the same price, the place seemed pretty simple. Overall was a good experience. Within short walking distance is the ocean. Head south on the water shore and you are in some beautiful rocky shores. Head north and you are at the dog beach which was fun to visit.... More

Thanks for the review Raychael84! You are absolutely correct - you can indeed bring your dog! We are a pet-friendly hotel on the first floor of the hotel and we love it! Sounds like you were here during an extra-busy dog rush - normally we only have about 3 or 4 dogs on the first floor. The second and third... More

It looks like these rooms were recently "renovated," but only slightly. -The bedding was fresh, but thin. -The flooring was hardwood...oh wait, that's just laminate. -The room had a mini fridge, but it was caked in rust at the bottom. -The bathroom had new tile work, but the shelving and fan were more rust than metal. -There were two air...

This hotel is so incredibly close to the beach, and the courtyard has a great view of the water. Check in was easy and the staff was welcoming and friendly. The rooms are small and dated, the AC is very loud, and the furniture is worn down a bit, but the room and bathroom were CLEAN, and that's really all... More

Thank you for the review MayHee! Very happy to hear that you enjoyed your beach vacation and were able to relax. Thank you for mentioning our renovated courtyard space and the incredible walk along Sunset Cliffs which starts just south of the OB Pier across the street from the hotel. Those cliffs are rarely mentioned but are one of the... More

Awesome location! The only reason it's a 4 star is because the party animals above us that kept us up all night. Partly our fault for not complaining. Always afraid it makes matters worse, we are peaceful people. My suggest for next guest is to book ocean front 3rd floor furthest west with no side or above neighbors. The management... More

Stumbling distance from a hopping bar scene: plus. Decent surf right across the street: plus. Reasonable mid-week rates: plus. Small room: minus. Fellow hotel occupants partying until 4 AM Friday morning: minus.

Thanks for the review Neal Cassady! It means a lot to get a 4-star review from someone that has 14 reviews in 9 cities and is On the Road as much as yourself!

We just returned from staying a few nights at this location. The rooms are small but clean. You really don't need much when you're so close to the beach.
