“Nice getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

After a greatly needed remodel the room was nice but not much detail was given to the paint job in the dressing and bath. Masking tape left on mirror. Closet and window frames slopped with paint.Water faucet mounted on an angle. Would have liked a dresser with drawers instead of cabinet housing the refer.

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights last week, and we were overaly satisfied with the experience. The hotel room was too dark, even with all the lights on, and the beds sagged a lot. It could definitely be cleaner, but was decent enough. Price was quite good for what we got, but I'd pay more for cleaner, brighter, and more comfortable accommodations. Breakfast was good, and employees very nice and helpful.

Third visit here. Very loud party going on at the pool. Live band. Trouble is, the band stinks. It's now almost 9:00pm. Okay, not that late, but this is a total lack of class.

The room is spacious, but lacks furniture. There is this very large open space in the sitting area that goes unused for lack of anywhere to sit. It's really kind of weird.

The room is clean, plenty of towels, lots of closet space, a really nice bed, and a great balcony, with a distant ocean view. The televisions are a large size, but the sound is not in sync with the picture.

As a diamond level rewards customer I expect to be greeted as such. Didn't happen. While the desk clerk wasn't unfriendly, I expected more.

Don't know if I'll be back.

Dear Sir

We are deeply sorry for what occurred. The noise and disruption from the Cabana room that was rented out should not have happened. It is our goal to have the comfort and peace of all our guests in mind. We are a very family friendly hotel and many guests do leave satisfied with their experience. We do hope you will return and give us another try. We have taken steps to ensure this problem does not occur again.

We thank you for your business,
Warmly,
Christina Beltran

The hotel over all was great. The room was really clean, spacious and had a very comfortable feel to it. The mini fridge wasn't that cold but it did the job. Our friend who had the luxury of sleeping on the sofa bed said he would have been better off sleeping on the floor due to the mattress being so thin that you could feel every spring. The pool is only 5 FT. deep but was warm and good for a quick wake me up dip. I will definitely be staying her again next time I'm in town.

This location is always on the top of our list especially when we get the off summer room rates. We will continue to visit this property forever.

This is really a nice motel. It has a parking garage, but you have to fight with any big trucks that also are allowed to park there. The breakfast was okay - if you like cold egg/cheese omelets and limp bacon. But also have to say the room I had was very nice.
