We stayed a night in December and had a great stay. The room was very large with a small ocean front balcony. Sunrise over the ocean is indescribable. The beds are very comfortable. Linens were very nice. We upgraded to a Jacuzzi room for no extra charge. Staff were very friendly. Christmas lights in OC are great. We also had a very large balcony with an ocean-view, but the door was locked and we were not able to use it. In season, a patio table and chairs are on the large balcony but they were stored in our room for the winter. Even with the extra table and chairs there was plenty of space.
