Reviewed yesterday NEW

Staff and location were excellent. The room had amenities that most high end hotels have, but we felt the room decor could be updated. The staff was lovely, extremely courteous and helpful. The room and view were good enough that we would stay there again.

Sure, the location is prime, next to the ocean. You hear the waves from the room and can have your breakfast on the balcony, just looking onto the beach and the pacific. But the room itself is dark, the furnishing is dated and the entire interior smells because of the fireplace. Keeping in mind that the room charge during off-season...

Our stay was fantastic. Our room had an open fireplace which made for a cosy night's sleep in the exceptionally comfortable bed. We had a fantastic view over the beach and the ocean. The hotel restaurant was very convenient for our cooked breakfast.

Beautiful ocean view. Hotel located right above the ocean. Nice lawn and walking path along ocean cliff. Short walk down to rocky beach. Nice fire pits at cliffs that staff lights each evening. Don't forget your s'mores fixings and marshmallow sticks (we didn't have any but it would have been nice and none for sale at motel)! Motel is dated...

We stayed at this resort for our anniversary for 3 days. We booked the Deluxe King room with a ocean view and a balcony. With Free Parking! The room was really nice! It has a fireplace and they give you some pre-cut little wood log pieces and they stack the fireplace with some news paper, some wood pieces and some...

I really needed to get away and recharge for a few days. I took my dog with me and spent time just enjoying the ocean, all the walks that were available. Everyone at this resort extremely friendly and helpful. I loved that they have a restaurant on site and took advantage of having a lovely dinner in my room every...

Motel on route 1 right next to the sea. Though it looks a little tardy upon arrival, it really grows on you. The rooms are large with 2 king size beds and all the facilities you might expect. The fridge is well stocked and all the drinks and snacks are reasonably priced. The rooms are a bit dark needs a...

I found this hotel last minute on a California road trip with my family. The reservationist was helpful and friendly. Check in was smooth and easy. Our partial oceanfront view was large and comfortable. Because we had a north facing room, it was a little dark in my opinion but over all the room was lovely. The fireplace was easy...

The room was excellent. It had all the amenities you could ask for: mini-bar (very reasonable prices), magnificent view, a fireplace prepared for easy use, seating to enjoy the view both in the room and on the patio, Keurig coffee maker, a really comfy bed and a good TV. We needed more coffee pods and the management offered to deliver...

The hotel was a great pet friendly place, very late check in was accommodated and our room was already assigned and ready and waiting for us. The room was clean and comfy although a carpet replacement to hardfloors is needed that and getting tod of the popcorn ceiling would do wonders and make this an A+ place to stay as...

“Furniture/Decor needs to be updated. Cleanliness: The room was superficially clean, but we noticed, a lot of things needed 'deep cleaning'. The room had a 'musty smell'. It helped to open the 'ocean' view sliding glass door to air it out. ”

“Amazing views of the ocean, second floor. I could leave my door open and listen to the ocean all night. So peaceful.”

“Ocean front room are only available with 1 king bed and. 2 person max but since the whole property is open to the ocean and in front of the beach you may not need to splurge for 'ocean front' if you are traveling with the family. Many basic rooms have a partial view anyway.”

“Room had a weird smell when you first walked in, but pretty much went away. Didn't care for the mold on the bathroom walls, but with being so close to the water maybe that is why.”
