“Beautiful hotel--- BUT!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are clean and the view is Awesome. These are the following drawbacks of the hotel:
1. The lights in the hallway are so bright, your room will not be dark--- so if you like sleeping in a dark room.. Not the place for you.
2. The lobby, and hallways echo.
3. There are no refrigerators in the room (the king beachfront suite)
4. When I called concerning the bright lights in the hallway-- I was told to put a towel over my door. (Bad move for a Category 6 hotel)

Other thank the items listed above the hotel is really nice. The staff was friendly and tried to be as helpful as possible. I loved the view from my room, just very disappointed in the fact that I did not get much sleep.

Stayed February 2014, traveled solo

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

This is a new place and the service is fantastic, I felt like a real VIP staying here. The rooms are brand new and all have some kind of ocean view (some have a partial, while others have a straight on view) the hotel is curved and you enter from an exterior corridor which is very unique because it like being inside but you are enjoying the fantastic California sunshine outside your front door. (I have provided pictures to show what I mean) The rooms are designed with sensible function and maximum use of the space, when you enter the room you see a long hallway with some doors on your right and then the living room with your balcony straight ahead. The views are fantastic from your balcony or just looking out your room; however the bedroom is in the front of the room towards the front door, this is my only complaint because you can hear people in the outer corridor depending on where your room is. The restaurant downstairs is a nice place with good food but it is a little expensive. The good news is there are a few inexpensive alternatives just across the street. That is what makes this area interesting as you are staying in a 5 star hotel in an older beach community which still caters to that surfer dude person, looking for sweet waves and inexpensive eats. I have enclosed several pictures showing the highlights of the room, from the clever outlet on the desk to the extra outlets in the bedroom area (someone really thought this place out) the bathroom is very fancy too down to the provided robs for you in the closet. The C.O Bigelow amenities are a nice touch as well, I would stay here again but be warned during the summer this place will be packed.

Room Tip: ask for a premium room as the view is better, also the studio rooms are the only ones where you can...

Love this hotel. It's new, clean, comfortable, and the staff is very nice and helpful. We were amazed at the wonderful accommodations at such a reasonable rate. The two days we spent there were great!
