Great location, about a block from the beach. Basic motel with a mini fridge. Free wifi although dropped quite often. Staff was nice. Elevator to southside rooms needs a vent or air. Furnishing and decor need updating. Biggest complaint ultra thin walls. Outside wall was so thin it sounded like a window was open. Rides shut down about 10:15pm and... More

We have stayed here many times. The decor is older but it is very clean. They don't take Discover and there is no microwave but it is close to the beach and the cleaning crew does a good job. They kept the pool clean also.

I was going to give this hotel a solid four stars until the last day of our stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the locations great, the price is right, and our room (including the bathroom) was very clean. We will definitely stay here next year. However, on the day of our checkout, we loaded our luggage into... More

For the money, this is a great place to stay in OC. The rooms are nothing fancy at all but they are an average size and they are clean. Very small fridges, no microwave. Mostly families stay here so no noisy groups. It's less than a block from the boardwalk and across the street from Castaway Cove. If you're looking... More

Stayed at the Impala on labor day weekend. Storm messed up stay but found the staff at the Impala to be great. We arrived before check in and room was not ready. They gave us beach tags and parking permit and directed us to changing room. Very well organized and efficient. They called us a bit later and told us... More

Decided last minute to take the four of us down to OC for the weekend. With my usual B&B booked, I searched hotels and found the Impala. Reviews were positive and decided to try them. We arrived a bit early, and even with the room not ready, front desk gave us our beach tags, let us park, and even offered... More

Love the Impala Inn. It's been our family choice of hotels since our daughter was a baby, and our baby is now 22! It's always clean, and a well taken care of facility. It's real close to the OC Boardwalk and easy to rent bikes in the morning for our ride on the boardwalk. Then it's off to the beach!!... More

My family and I have been staying here for years and we've never been let down. The room is always clean and the size of the rooms are large in my opinion. The Wifi also works great as well as the TV. The location is wonderful, just a short walk up to the boardwalk and beach and in walking distance... More

The hotel is a close walk to the boardwalk and beach. The room was clean big enough for a family of four to not feel cramped. But two big issues with the room/hotel: First, the pool is only open until 7pm. 7pm! The hotel's biggest amenity can only be used for part of the day. Evening swimming is fun for... More

The room we stayed in was recently renovated and although it was small, it was very nice. The only issue I had was that our room did not get cleaned by the maid due to an oversight. However, we were given fresh towels by the front desk staff. I certainly would stay there again. They need to continue the renovations... More
