Very Hot weekend and hotel stay was perfect with A/C. Across from Ocean and walked to 2 restaurants plus over bridge to beach. A "Cool" Place to Stay! Staff was very pleasant and breakfast had a nice presentation.

I hadn't had a real vacation in five years and was looking for an Orange County hotel close to the beach that wouldn't break the bank (not an easy find in the summertime!) I am SO glad I chose this hotel. It was the perfect place for me to "unplug" and relax for a few days. The room was much... More

I love the beach but not the sand, we had a very cofotable room with a balcony that afforded us an ocean view. So nice after a day of sight seeing to be able to not be closed into a room. This was our second time staying at this Inn and we will be back.

Our visit to this unique hotel was just perfect. We enjoyed the lovely view from our patio, the unique ocean front to the right and left, and of course many things to do nearby. The room was clean as were the small patios and alcoves. The owners and their family were very special people and made the stay even better.... More

Great hotel right across the street from what is a rocky beach but very enjoyable. Located close to everything you would want from the region, (better) beaches, restaurants, harbor, tourist destinations and San Diego 30 minutes right down the freeway. There is an Amtrak train that runs by quite often, but is fairly quiet and wasn't a bother. Staff was... More

We came to this area for a wedding, stayed here for three nights. It was wonderful! The owners, Mr. & Mrs. Wong, a super friendly couple, are always smiling and helpful. They remember you by first name, it's so not like any other Best Western (or chain hotel) I've stayed at. The complimentary breakfast is excellent. Mr. Wong fresh made... More

Balcony overlooks the ocean. Sunset is beautiful and breakfast on the deck is delightful. Room was comfy and accommodating for senior citizens. A stroll along the beach to a nearby Mexican restaurant for dinner was a plus for location of Inn.
