We've stayed at this particular hotel four times now when we visit family in CA. The rooms are always clean, the beds are comfortable and the staff is always eager to help you with whatever you need. When I forgot my hairdryer, they were right there to the rescue. Its appreciated. Smoking AND non smoking floors, and that's appreciated, too.

Really pleased with my recent stay at ESA, thanks so much to crystal for the wonderful customer service. Pros: kitchenette, pet policy, comfy beds, clean, close to beach and shops without the price tag.

I stayed here in July 2016 for 4 days and thought it was good value for the money. Hotels are expensive in this area and this hotel was a good price for the area. The room was clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable. There was a small kitchen that I didn't use, but it was clean.

So I had a chance to stay here overnight as a recommendation from a friend who works in the area. As far as the hotel itself is concerned--it's a really nice place. If you are lucky enough to be checked in by Carmen, you are a lucky person. She ROCKS. Super friendly and extremely accommodating. My room is clean, fairly... More

We would like to thank you for providing feedback about your stay. It is satisfying to read you enjoyed your room and the amenities are provided, especially the fully equipped kitchen, but I am disappointed you we lacked some amenities that you would have liked and our grab-and-go breakfast did not meet your expectations.

Has kitchen, with utensils and cooking utensils provided at front desk. WIFI is free but not good enough to stream Hulu or Netflix. You can upgrade for a fee. Bed is King size and room is quiet and large. Maid service is free, once a week, but you can pay for daily service. "Free breakfast" is only coffee and granola... More

My husband and I were attending "The Purpose Driven Church" conference at Saddleback Church. We had stayed 2 nights at another hotel and found that we had accidentally failed to book our third night. We needed to change hotels in the middle of the day and didn't want our electronic devices to stay in the hot car all afternoon. Extended... More

Just average. There are much better places to stay. For the same or more money you can stay at the Hilton Garden Inn, Courtyard by Mariott, the Prominence Hotel and Suites etc. This is where we always stayed when visiting relatives but now we stay at The Prominence which is better by far. .

The front desk clerk was very nice. The lobby is run down with virtually every corner in every wall falling apart exposing Sheetrock. There was a guest ahead of me complaining that the stove didn't work. The tv in my room didn't work. My room was very, very well used. Bed was serviceable. Overall, pass on this location.
