The buffet attendant, Patty, is the ambassador of the hotel. She welcomes you each morning, and makes you feel like you're the only person in the room. Great to see employees who are truly engaged and love their work, because then it isn't.

My family of four stayed here for two nights during the Christmas holiday. We had a top floor room facing the harbor and it was worth the extra cost. This was the quietest hotel I have stayed at that wasn't an upscale resort. Not sure if this was because we had no neighbors or the hotel really is soundproof, but we appreciated it.
The room was clean and provided a microwave, fridge, and coffee maker. The bed was comfortable. My only complaint is the pillows are a bit flat.
The morning breakfast was well stocked even after the early morning rush and provided a variety of items. Pastries, cereal, waffles, eggs, biscuits and gravy, and fruit to name a few. Great coffee and a variety of teas. The dining area has plenty of seating.
The staff was very courteous and we enjoyed our stay. We plan to stay here again and I would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Room Tip: Top floor, harbor view is worth it.

We stay here a couple of times per year when we visit family in the area. I find it hard to rate with stars as I would not ordinarily call it a 4 or 5 star hotel, but it IS 4 or 5 stars for what it is -- a fairly basic no frills hotel. The marina view is lovely, the bed is comfortable, the shower is hot and there are small balconies. The breakfast is decent but not exceptional. The staff is very nice.

Room Tip: Rooms on the marina side have a lovely view.

I used some Hilton Honors points to stay there for a Christmas party and was not impressed with service, staff or accomodations. It's ok, but I'd probably select another hotel/chain for my stay there.

The shower was the best part of the room. Plenty of water pressure and the tile and decoration was nicely upgraded recently. I didn't like the beds. They felt futon-like.

As a Diamond membership level I expected a bit more. I received one bottle water and when I ask if I could upgrade to a water view I was told I don't have enough points and was not offered a cash price alternative. I didn't bother to ask since I could tell the staff was already overwhelmed - at what I was not sure of.

Dear RB252:
I want to thank you for taking the time to share your experience while staying at our property during your last visit to the Channel Islands Area and glad you enjoyed the shower and decor in the bathroom area. I apologize for not being able to accomodate your request for an upgrade to a marina view, unfortunately we don't have all the information of guests points up to date in our system and we should have suggested to call HHonors directly to see if you had more available for the upgrade or as you mentioned, we could have given you a cash option if available; also the beds we have are Brand Standard required at all Hamptons and I'm sorry it was not your favorite. If you are in the area in the future and will like to give us another opportunity to serve your needs, please feel free to contact me directly and I'll be happy to assist you with your reservation.

Excellent location, stayed here for Thanksgiving and the next night. Last time we stayed here, was almost two years ago for the boat parade in 2010. But it is too bad the eyesore of the Casa Sirena has to be seen.

Bed was comfy like before. If you come back at night, it is better to park to the left of the pool. Front desk person was great when I lost my keys and made new ones.

Good place to eat nearby across the water is Sea Fresh, been there many times. Toppers isn't open early and can be noisy. Another great shop is Studio Gallery on Victoria.

This one one of the few hotels in the area that does not have a parking fee. And wifi is free, too! It is an added benefit in my opinion since I do not have to waste data. Had to go to the front main building to get tea bags, wish they provided it with coffee in the room as I do not drink coffee.

Room Tip: Get a marina view room

Dear lineelee:
We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our property during the Thanksgiving Holiday, it's great to hear your comments and share with other travelers. Please feel free to contact me directly or anyone at the front desk next time you're visiting so that we can make sure there are some tea bags in your room for you to enjoy without coming to the breakfast area, we'll be happy to do that.
Thank you again,

This hotel is off the beaten path, about 5 miles from a major freeway, but the extra drive was definitely worth it! We had a marina view and also there was a nice walking path along the marina with a park right next door. The staff was great! Would definitely stay here again. There was a refrigerator in the room, but we had to get it out of the cabinet to turn it down as it was freezing the food. That was our only negative comment.

We stayed here and took the advice of other reviewers and requested the marina view. It was very pretty and the facility is above average. The bed was comfortable. My only complaint is that there was not a refrigerator in the room. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again. Conveniently located to the Navy base.
