The hotel was clean and affordable. Check in is not till 3P on the dot, so don't bother showing up early. If you do however they have a very comfortable lobby with a TV nice couches and seats. I chose to stay here because it was close to my grandparents who live in Leisure World and is only 2 miles from downtown Seal Beach. The bed was comfortable and room was very clean. You get about 40 channels on the TV in room and the Free HBO is a plus in my book. The Ayres is a little nicer (newer), but I've had to many bad experiences there to ever go back. If I need to stay in a hotel in this area again I will not hesitate to stop here. Lastly it is close to the 405, 605, 22 freeways, but beware Los Alamitos/Seal Beach Blvd. is under construction and you should avoid entering the 405 freeway that way if possible due to high traffic and 20-30 min waits.
