“Blah.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

I'm a big fan of the Doubletree brand, as well as all other Hilton brands so I usually know I can expect a great nights sleep. I arrived at the hotel around 9 pm, and Katelynn was a warm welcoming spirit. I, too, was shocked with the. $22 parking fee, As it seems others were as well.
I was placed on the 2nd floor near the ice and vending. Quick note, please request to NOT be near the ice and vending as it is very loud. My air was set on about 76°, so I turned it down to 68°. It never got below 74° so needless to say I was quite warm all night.
I had a great shower and a great breakfast, but would recommend moving the ice and vending to another location as it seems to be a common complaint from what I've read.
The views where great, but I was just underwhelmed with my experience.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the ice & vending would be less noise in my opinion.

Location is great. Good quality dog friendly. Pleasant Staff who aimed to please. Had the vague feeling that management was chaotic - like the staff meant well but that no adults were at home. But I would stay again

We paid for an ocean view suite and walked into a very small room with a view of some trees and the street, the ocean was beyond that which was pointless to look at. rooms are very small and bathroom is beyond small to where only one person can fit at a time and u have to close door and move to side to let someone else in. very very dissatisfied!!!

Great location and a wonderful staff. The rooms are a little tired but that made no difference to my family we really enjoyed our stay and will stay there again for sure . Loved the layout of the rooms you have a cute little separate sitting area that was nice for reading and coffee . The ocean view was both beautiful and calming . This is a great place to stay with families or couples . Fun (happening) roof top outside bar with cool live music . We cannot wait to get back !!!!! Oh yes you can walk to the beach !!!!!

This was a great find. About half the price of everywhere else in the area. Has a good restaurant an a great bar upstairs overlooking doheney beach. Band plays at night great atmosphere. Perfect for a quick getaway. There is deff better hotels in the area but for the money an location this was perfect

Paid a lot and overall the experience was average. The staff were friendly, and the rooms were nice with an ocean view, but we suffered a power outage, there was detectible noise outside the room, the television malfunctioned and the bathroom leaked.
