Bed is hard as a rock, towels are dirty. Old dirty building. I had do not disturb sign on and maintance still came in. However much better to stay in this area than hotel circle if you are going to SeaWorld or Mission Beach, but other hotels in area are nicer and charge the same.

Was told the hotel had 24 hour shuttle service to airport. Not true, had to call taxi. the hotel is old, carpet stained, clean for what they... More

There is a small room were you can have some nice Orange Juice and some Coffee with pastries. But all in one the everything is a little old and the staff for my experience unfriendly,... More

The service was great and tried everything to help us out, but the room, we had a double queen room, it had no iron or board, the towels were old... More

After being told it is 5 minute WALK to the beach, WRONG. More like a 15 minute DRIVE. cancelled reservation as soon as I seen the place in person, DIRTY!!! Strippers are located right across the street, and quite frankly, there is nothing in the area for children. It was a pretty long drive to the beach as well.

This hotel was just disgusting. Everything was dirty. The inside and the outside of the hotel. In our room the carpet was old and sticky (did not want to walk barefoot on it). The electrical outlet by the door didn't have a cover on it (which is not good when you have small children). I'm pretty sure there was mold... More

This must be the worst place i have every stayed in ever, anywhere in the world. the pictures are deceptive, and the sullen rude woman at the front desk does nothing to improve your stay. I got a cab out of there first thing in the morning without "breakfast". Thats another story. The breakfast room was a shocker, the hotel... More

Noisy, not too clean. Close to Sea World and freeways. Gentleman's club across the street was very busy on a Saturday night with busloads of patrons arriving hourly. Loud neighbors, thin walls. Towels plentiful but thin and scratchy. Room given initially was occupied and I had to return to the front desk for reassignment. IHOP immediately next door was very... More
