4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Finally getting around to writing a review from my stay President's day weekend.

I was a bit skeptical when my girlfriend suggested this hotel for our weekend trip to O.CShe had stayed there before and said it was remodeled, and very nice.I had only remebered this chain as being run-down and lame.I was pleasantly surprised,The (free upgraded)oceanfront room was fantastic and we had the hotel on sunday night totally to ourselves.There wasn't much going on in O.C that time of the year,but,we both enjoyed the solitude of the beach and boardwalk.I saw one of their pamphlets for 2013 and our room listed for 350 a night in the summer.You would have to be insane to pay that rate,but for an off-season ''steal''we were happy.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

My husband and I have stayed at this motel several times in the past. We are all for going "green", but they may have gone too far. The water pressure in the showers, not sinks or toilets, have been cut back to less than 3 gpm. This might not seem like a big deal, but I do enjoy a good shower to get me going in the morning. I wonder if anyone has considered how much longer guests, especially with long hair, will need to stay in the shower in order to get their hair clean. We also were not told that they were changing the locks on the rooms. When we returned the key card did not work. Again, it was not a big deal, but it would have been nice to have been told that when we checked in. At least that way, we would have known to go directly to the lobby before going up to our room.
