As a Kimpton fan, I had high hopes for this hotel stay. The staff went above and beyond to ensure the stay was fantastic. While modifying my reservation the General Manager, Brent, asked if there was a special occasion we were celebrating. It was a special anniversary. In addition to a bit of an early check in (thanks Megan) there... More

Pros - So close to the beach. Free bike rental, towels, boogie boards, ping pong and so much more. Good service. Close to all you need. Even a 24 HR Gym downs the street. Cons - Gym was under construction. No Pool. Would have given it a 5 star review if they had a pool. We stayed with 2 people... More

I've stayed here a couple of times now for a mix of business and pleasure. It is a great location with HB just across the street. The staff is friendly and the hotel is kept quite clean. It's pretty pricy... you should count on paying $35 for parking and a similar $$ amount for "resort fees". (This is just a... More

Cute rooms, awesome location, accommodating staff. We could walk pretty much everywhere. The wine reception was an added bonus. We made use of the beach chair rental as well. Noon checkout was great so we could spend some time at the beach in the morning.

Loved this hotel- we stayed 2 nights in August whilst driving the PCH. It's very convenient for that as location is right on the highway. It's also right opposite the beach. The atmosphere of the whole place was cool and relaxed- just what you expect of a beach hotel in California. There were also some nice extras like free wine... More

We stayed the first 3 nights of our vacation and loved the hotel and resort. We borrowed the hotel bikes and cycled the Pacific coastal pathway, the following day we borrowed sun chairs and towels and stayed on the beach! Our room faced the sea so I would highly recommend these. The team couldn't be more helpful but one gripe... More

We arrived here two days ago and have four to go. Service is excellent. People very friendly and customer service oriented. Only compliant was that if you don't get there early they may not have beach amenities available as its first come first serve. Minor in the grand scheme of things. Will probably come again.
