5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I am physically disabled and was surprised at the wonderful ADA room accommodations as the room was huge with separate toilet/shower room and included a little kitchenette with bar counter. Only glitch was the high bed (not in ADA guidelines) for which I had to have my caregiver help me up along with my little stool. TV stations great and... More

Clean hotel, friendly staff. Had some issues with housekeeping (didn't clean room one day as they leave at 4pm). Breakfast choices basic but filling. Great ocean view from balcony and relaxing pool/jacuzzi. A simple upgrade on the balcony furniture would increase value. Furniture was rusted, stained and broken. However, we would return as location is ideal and bedroom comfortable. Upgrading... More

I love that I felt like I was staying at my own condo rather than a hotel room. The grounds are peaceful and beautiful, the sunsets are amazing from the balcony, and you can walk to the beach in 5 mins.

We stayed at this hotel for my sons baseball tournament. In fact it was the whole team and parents staying here. They "lost" the coaches reservation, so he didn't get the group rate and they wouldn't buge about it. It was so infested with ants that 3 families actually left to stay at another hotel. There were ants in our... More

They are spending alot of money on their pool upgrades so it looks good on their website however they are neglecting the serious ANT PROBLEM they have and the very inconsistent wifi problem they have. In addition, the pullout sofa is ripped and very uncomfortable. No where near the money they charge. We were staying here with several other families... More

The location of this hotel is fabulous but the property is dated and the rooms smell a bit musty. There is a lot of noise from I-5 and the balconies are draped with beach towels. The breakfast was convenient but the choices felt a bit like we were on a space ship -plastic everything. The check-in person was friendly but... More

We could only handle one night for a 6 night trip. Ants everywhere in the room, horrible AC and crappy wifi. The one bedroom suite was very dark and outdated. The pool area was clean and well maintained. We checked out and moved to another hotel.

This hotel is beautiful, open and with ocean view! The location is perfect. The rooms have beautiful balconies that view the ocean and the front entrance of the rooms view the garden and pool. We found it to be very relaxing and beautiful. The continental breakfast provided quite a spread! Seating by the pool or indoors is quite exceptional.

Parking is always easy. Sound of the ocean on one side w/the freeway on the other. Place is always clean & near everything we want to see, eat, or do. Staff is always kind & prompt. Bedding was clean & crisp but our bed was extra bouncy. It's vacation so NO COMPLAINTS!!!
