We were visiting friends less than a half mile away so we were not expecting much even with all the good trip advisor reviews. We were pleasantly surprised and feel we can safely say we stay no where else when visiting Orange County again. Our room was large and the bed was the super comfy and not just on hotel standards - it was a good bed. And good pillows which is such a rarity in hotels. Parking was easy and it was great to wake up and get a cup of coffee and cereal from the breakfast bar and sit looking at the ocean. For those not familiar with this part of southern CA be warned that you are right on PCH and right across from the train tracks. But so are most of the other places so do yourself a favor and stay here.
