Upon arrival they knew me by first name, the check in process took less than two minuets, and offered their help with any luggage up to our room. Very friendly and great atmosphere. Defiantly will be staying in the future.

The hotel was clean and the staff efficient and friendly. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was tiny and the room lacked a refrigerator and microwave. The breakfast was meager and lacked quality, healthy items.

Very helpful staff at Reservation and Front Desk. I had to make changes to my reservation and both provided assistance on a would-be messy situation for me. So a big thank-you for the staffs! The facility has always been high quality and it's in walking distance to beach. Enjoyed it very time we stayed.

This hotel is just steps from the California ocean and less than an hour to Monterey, Pacific Grove, and Carmel to the south and Santa Cruz to the north. However, the reason this hotel's location is FAB is it's distance from Moss Landing - the best spot on the coast for bird watching, harbor seal watching, whale wat hung, and...

They have excellent staff along with a longer complimentary breakfast than most. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The location is perfect! Right off the highway and immediately across the street from the beach!

We enjoyed our stay. Location is loud due to traffic. Was able to hear all activity outside our room. One dirty towel, dirty baseboards in bathroom need attendtion to detail with cleaning. Otherwise, good experience. Staff very accomodating and nice and polite.

The hotel was listed as a 3-Star on the reservation app that I used (Hotwire), but it was nowhere near a three star. I travel for work, so I am constantly in hotels. This room was dusty, there were stains on the sheets, ants in the bed, the shower did not work. The next room that I was moved to...

The room was disgusting. I was afraid to walk on the carpet. I was afraid to touch the comforter. So I threw it off the bed altogether.the absolute worst place I've ever stayed in my entire life. Stay there at your peril.
