This is a reasonable hotel to stay at. I stayed in room 317, one bedroom, overlooking the street. The hotel is in a quiet neighbourhood, so being on the street doesn't affect sleep. It's a short walk to the beach, Whole Foods, coffee shops (with free wireless - you have to pay for the wireless service at this hotel), and the Third Street Promenade. Close to movie theatres and restaurants as well. Want a big salad at a reasonable price, and tastes wonderful? Go to Tender Greens.
Cal Mar's suites are like apartments. I'm sure they were individually rented out apartments at one point in time. The suite was tired (pink bathtub, old chesterfield), but very, very clean. I have read from other reviewers that some rooms have been updated.
All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Staff are very welcoming and helpful. I'd definitely stay here again.
