I love it when I can say the title above. Once again, I chose it because of the reviews here. Many of the reviews suggested we ask for a third floor, partial view of the ocean review. That was perfect! Our balcony was very private w/ an amazing view of the Pacific. The staff was exceptional, I mean every one... More

We had a great stay for our time away together! We are so busy at home that we don't see each other a lot and coming here was what the dr ordered.

The location of this hotel is fantastic and the people who worked there were extremely nice. Unfortunately for me the rooms and hallways were a complete disappointment. The lobby is bright, colorful and cheery, but the rooms are dark and tiny. We were told that all the rooms had been renovated three years ago. That was hard to believe given... More
