We stayed here over Labor Day weekend and our family suite was great..except there was only a tiny mini-fridge--that didn't suit us at ALL. We had to leave many items in our cooler. We didn't care too much, we were only there to spend time on the beach. However, the check in process was odd; we arrived very late and...

The rooms were clean and updated recently. We upgraded with the kitchen,and saved some money eating in. The area has...

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to write a review on Trip Advisor. As you mentioned in your review having the kitchen option is really beneficial whether you are a family or a couple. This gives you the option of eating in or visiting one of the many restaurants in the area. The courtyard area...

We stayed one night as a large group (18) at this hotel when we came out of Mexico and were waiting for a flight the next day. It was a comfortable, cozy little place only a block from the Mission Beach. The rooms were recently painted although one can still tell that the Inn has some years behind it. We...

I really enjoyed staying here. The staff were great, the pool and hot tub were nice and the location was excellent. The woman at the front desk was very helpful arranging transportation and other trip details. The only complaint was the hotel was kind of noisy - not necessarily people staying here, but because it was on the older side...

Located near the beach (less than a block) was ideal. Also, the commercial strip offering many restaurants was a short walk away but far enough not to bother your stay. The pool and hot tub area was nice to end the day at and offered a complementary BBQ and eating area we enjoyed. The personnel was very nice and helpful....
