Stayed here for two nights. Close to beach, boardwalk and downtown OC. Instead of holding a cash deposit for beach tags they just charge your card if you don't return them...I love this idea because other hotels hold $25 per beach tag, I want my cash handy.
Pool area is nice with lots of seating and there are chairs outside of each room.
My only complaints/suggestions to management are leave the pool open later; OC pools all seem to close do early, some as early as 6 pm. 10 or 11 pm would be so much nicer.
Secondly, the room I had was very dark as in navy walls, carpet and dark bedspread. I understand the reason for having dark carpet but the wallpaper and bedspread could easily be a lighter, neutral or beach themed color.
Overall I'd stay here again.
