It is important to get a room on the top floor or you will not be able to see the ocean. On the ocean side on the first floor, you will be able to see the breakwater area only looking over a wall. The suites are spectacular. You can hear the seals all night which we thought was charming but... More

I love this place. At first I thought it was mediocre since there's nothing extraordinary of their facade but once you are inside, it is just marvelous. The people are wonderful especially, Sheika. She's amazing and very Ohana friendly. There is a lounge reception that's conducive for meeting or meeting friends. The pool and gym are pretty small but I... More

This place was absolutely, perfectly what i wanted for my stay in LA! The sound of the sea, gently slapping on the breakwater, seals and gulls calling, sailboats gliding by as I sat out on my patio / temporary office, paddleboats and bicycles for rent (though I didn't use either), surfing and jogging on the Strand right there (and I...

View from the third floor was very nice. I enjoyed the patio very much. There is a $10 per day facilities fee, which I think is for the internet, whether or not it is used. Also a $27/day self-parking, which seems a lot as well.

This is a lovely marina hotel with rooms right on the water. There's a breakwater separating the marina from the ocean, so you don't get the sound of crashing waves. Instead you hear barking seals, ensconced on a floating platform! Definitely request an ocean-facing room to enjoy the sights and sounds of the seals, kayaks, and small boats traversing the... More

This is my second visit. The first visit was spectacular, the second less so owing to a room facing the parking lot. Ask for the ocean-facing side if you can. Panorama aside, the rooms themselves are very good and nicely decorated. I enjoy having a little balcony (even if it is only looking out on a parking lot). There are... More

Four Seasons prices for Motel 6 quality. Just checked in and this place is unforgivably tired for this price. Run down, and nothing special to offer, except for holes in sheets and dirty robes. Wedding venue so main bar was taken over by photographer and wedding party. Had to go somewhere else for cocktails.

I've stayed at this property a couple times and have been impressed each time with the friendliness and service of the staff, regardless of the time of day. The hotel and guestrooms are always clean and I enjoy the nautical theme. I also highly recommend the restaurant (Baleen).

Been staying here for the past several years and witnessed the rapid decline of what one would think should be a great property given the prime location and investment in the lobby lounge. However, the property owners (Noble House) have spared every possible expense in keeping this property well maintained, and it is now a run down 'motel' by any... More
