“Really nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

I booked this motel after comparing prices and reviews in the area. It is really a nice place. It's just about 2 miles from the beach and the room is clean. Its free breakfast is better than most complimentary breakfast from a motel. Overall, I'm really happy with my stay and will be there again for my next trip.

Stayed September 2013, traveled with family

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

I stayed here near the end of September for a few nights. The front desk was very nice and checked me in quickly. The halls are nice and there's even a nice little sitting area on the second floor if you want to just grab some fresh air and relax. The elevator inspection needs to be renewed though. That's a must being that the elevator door hit me kind of hard and then looking at the certificate seeing that it expired sometime in December of 2012. The room was nice and roomy. I got a non-smoking room with one bed. The bed sheets looked and smelled great, the bathroom sink area was clean and tidy. Just the bathroom with the tub needed to be swept a bit better being that I found a couple of hairs on the floor. What got to me a bit as well was that there were some ants in the bathroom with the tub. I saw a few during my stay and killed them with a tissue. Other than the bathroom needing a bit more cleaning, the flatscreen TV worked nice, the desk chairs were clean and comfy, and the bed was very comfortable. ALSO.. finding an outlet space was kind of difficult. They could use some work on desk outlets or wall plugs. The WI-FI was fast. I had to keep signing on every here and there, but it was very speedy when you are connected. I MIGHT stay here again when I am in the area. That bathroom needs some work!

the hotel was okay. it was situated at a quiet neighborhood, 30-45 minutes drive to universal studios. it was not far from the beach and was close to many restaurants and shopping area. the free breakfast was simple; bread, waffles, cereals, muffins and some fruits. the wifi connection was good. the staff was friendly and helpful. the room was really big and i liked it. good value for the money and i would come back here.
