We love the location of this hotel and we were treated like old friends by the staff. Great views of the ocean, very clean rooms, excellent WiFi, easy parking. And the entire staff, continually asked if they could help.

No complaints everything was as I expected, encountered no problems with room, front desk or personnel. Breakfast was great. It is always great at Beach View. Have stayed there several times. Will probably stay again this year.

The location is excellent, the price is great, and the people could not be nicer. I am a repeat customer, and plan on returning. Year round, you could not do better. I feel as if I am giving away insider information!

Such a great location, easy to walk to great restaurants, ice cream and the beloved beach! And drive down highway 1 to various locations, easy drive to Legoland too. Great breakfast you can...

I chose this hotel for the location and I wasn't disappointment. The staff is really nice and friendly, they have parking on site and a pool (never used it, but I believe that it's heated). The view from the breakfast area is beautiful, ocean, people out on their walk and hanging out, California life-style in front of your eyes. The...

Your staff were outstanding! Very friendly and helpful. The hotel with fireplace was a great touch for our little couple's retreat...a little time without the kiddos. :-) Also, great hotel and location.

Lovely location close to beach and shops .....and just across street from delicious fish and chip place Was nice and clean. Small pool and hot tub Breakfast was handy and pretty basic. The hot bagel and egg sandwiches were actually terrible and soggy, and pancakes were very bad. But just the typical continental breakfast ! Internet worked well

This hotel has recently been updated, and they did a great job! We room was really nice. The beach is literally across the street, so if you don't have a beach view room, don't worry it's across the street. The continental breakfast was good and the view of the ocean was amazing! We really enjoyed our stay here, especially with...
