5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We arrived several hours before the posted check-in time and were checked in immediately. I know some posts indicate their room on Beach Blvd was noisy but our room on the 3rd floor was no problem. Our room was clean and comfortable especially the beds. The parking was ample and no long waits for the elevator. I would skip the complimentary breakfast due to lots of people competing for the few seats in a small area but Norm's down the street is delicious and very affordable.

This hotel is a great place to stay because it is away from the beach but close enough to go out and and enjoy the day/night on the beach. I was disappointed with the breakfast but over all our stay was great and had great service I would stay and I would encourage other people to check out this hotel.

Room was clean and had coffee maker, frig and micro as advertised. We were able to check in early which was nice. There was a mold problem in the bathroom but that seems to be common in this climate.
As others have mentioned, this is NOT on the beach. Beach Blvd is an 8 lane highway running inland from the beach. If you are looking for something on the beach you need to look for an address on Pacific Coast Highway and expect to pay a lot more.
We also experienced the noise in the parking lot and pool late at night. It woke us up a couple of times
Breakfast was okay with coffee, tea, juice, apples, oranges, toast, instant oatmeal, 2 kinds of cold cereal and mini muffins and donuts. If you want more than that, there is a Subway 2 buildings down.

Room Tip: We had two rooms on the third floor to the back of the property and it would have been quiet except...

Well the hotel setting was fine. The surrounding apartments were quiet. My husband and I slept with the a/c on all night, so we may not have heard anyone anyway. =) The bed was firm but we slept okay on it. The sheets and top comforter and pillows smelt fresh and clean. I could tell, that the maids really do their best to make sure the showers, toilet, sink, and bathroom floors are clean. The only thing is the carpet is old old old and nasty. Almost sticky all around. Granted we had to take a smoking room, cause that was all they had left. The smell didn't bother us as much, once we turned on the a/c and circulated the airflow. All and all, if we had to stay in Huntington Beach again, it wasn't a bad stay for the night. Would just be nice, if they could do something with that old sticky carpet. The check in girl, was more friendly than the check out girl. The check out girl, didn't even say something like, "thank you for staying with us....." I mean, I'm a property manager of 125 apartments, and I pride myself on making everyone feel appreciative of living at my community. But I understand that job can't be easy. But still........
