Room has many appliances and desk. Bed was very comfortable. Near train passageway, but very brief noise from it. Pool area clean and heated, jacuzzi small but not crowded when we were there. Breakfast foods had warm/cold selections, however no lactose-free products. Close to several restaurants and few blocks to town, not beach.

What can I say. The beds are amazingly comfortable. The area is nice. Everything is clean. The front desk has been helpful. We are all very happy. Oh yeah, the free breakfast is fantastic. We ate so much it got us through to dinner. I love the waffles.

Pleasantly surprised. Room was very nice. I especially liked the layout of the room. Staff was also pleasant and helpful. The coffee maker in the room didn't look clean enough for me to want to make coffee, but there was coffee in the breakfast area so we just had that. Otherwise everything was clean and nice here.

My wife and I stayed in this place and as we have heard it looks old outside but they have put a lot of money inside, including granite counter tops. The only concern I had was that the bathroom sink was slow draining, maybe age of the plumbing. We reported it before leaving. It is a place we would stay... More

Clean. Modern. Affordable. Nothing to dislike. Great staff. Housekeeping always working. Many great restaurant choices on the same street, from fine dining to fast food. Beach a few minutes in the car. Definitely recommend.

The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful. The pier is NOT in walking distance but at least 15 minutes drive away.the beach is within 10 minutes walk. There are no shops, bars or restaurants around which means you have to drive everywhere unless you stay by the pool or go to the beach.

Clean rooms, breakfast is Ok which includes cereal, bagels, yogurt, eggs, sausage and waffles. Front desk people were always busy but did a great job maintaining professionalism and always willing to help. Has a pool and hot tub. Pet friendly

The staff is friendly and shared their knowledge of the area leading us to so sites off the beaten path. The room clean and the beds, pillows and sheet were comfortable for a good nights sleep. The breakfast was good and the area roomy and clean, very convenient for a family. The best asset is that it is within easy... More

Within the first 2 hours there I was asking about the cancellation policy or switching rooms. We had an upstairs king bed room at the back of the property that is in VERY close proximity to the train tracks and freeway. We ended up staying the 2 nights we had planned because we were with friends staying at the same... More

Jennifer G- Thank you for your feedback. Yes it is true we are close to the train, the railroad was here before us and is part of our lives here. We do try our best to meet requests to be away from back. But find it doesn't bother most and that those are some of our most popular rooms because... More
