Decent private motel close to Pacific. Savanna was a very pleasant front desk person. The manager not so much. They have cabins with kitchens plus large bedrooms and closets. It's half a block off the boardwalk. Very tight parking for any car of size. We would stay there again.

The pictures do not show the real experience. I got bumped to this "upgraded" sister property due to overbooking. If this is "upgraded"... I'm a bit afraid of what the Diamond Head Inn looked like inside. At 10pm at night... It looked "ok" other than the ugly brown paint job. I mean the entire building is this color. The parking...

Thank you for your time making your comments. Sometimes, there can be differences of opinions, and I feel this is one of them times. As for the room, it is new, modern, and according to most of our guests in the past, very nice. We do always try to make an impression for our guests by utilizing an interior designer... More

This hotel was great for us! Nothing fancy! We were not there to hang out in the hotel though!! Few things though, the pool is not heated! So don't plan on swimming if your there during "winter". And the continental breakfast is just a couple donuts,oj and coffee. The air conditioner didn't work, so thank god we weren't there in... More

I was a little Leary about staying there because it was pretty cheap for almost beach front hotel but I was pleasantly surprised I would definitely stay again if we find ourselves in the area again...good basic hotel nothing fancy but not over priced either.

We stayed here for 5 nights from 1/14/15-1/19/15. Motel is not ocean front but is in very close walking distance. We had a room on the 2nd floor (room 31). Room overall was clean as was bathroom. Big shower. Not a lot of counter space in bathroom. Our room had a table and 2 chairs along with 2 double beds.... More

The hotel was located in a great area, but some lights didn't work. The toilet was wobbly. An outlet didn't work. The continental breakfast was coffee and packaged danish. The parking lot was used as a public pathway by people leaving the beach.

It's very strange, because we have never used one prepackaged pastry or danish for our breakfast. I know the breakfast is limited, but we only use pastries and danish from a local bakery. They come in bakery boxes and are delivered each morning to us very fresh. Thank you! More

I was pleasantly surprised by room. I was staying here because I wanted to be close to the beach as an alternative to the hotel that was recommended by a conference that I was attending for 4 days in the area. I found this hotel online, and it met my budget. The room was nicely decorated, comfortable bed, and a... More

We apologize for the bleach smell, but there are times when that is a necessary fix. Usually though, the room would have plenty of time to air out prior to your checking in. We do have plans on a full renovation soon! Thank you. More

I did a quick stay here for just one night. The room was rather dated and they do charge for wifi. There was coffee/juice and doughnuts for breakfast. While it is a very basic hotel the price and location more than make up for the condition of the room. Try to go for a renovated room and one that is... More

I wanted a hotel by the beach. This place is literally two minutes from the beach. The front desk lady was nice and tried to accommodate us as best as she could. We were very early for Check in. Rooms are nice. (A little dirty in the bathroom) The one we stayed at had some issues like the back of... More
