I stayed here for one night after attending a friends wedding in Newport beach and was not able to drive home. Just wanted somewhere to lay my head and wouldn't be too costly. The sand piper is exactly that. Old hotel and it looks the part. Plenty of parking and free wifi is nice. Room was pretty worn but for $45 I wasn't expecting anything fancy. They even have smoking rooms still, not too common these days. Again this hotel is nothing fancy and the price reflects that ( actually I'm puzzled as to how they have managed to stay in business.)
I gave the sandpiper a 4 due to my expectations not being very high. Would stay here under similar circumstances again
