This hotel building was designed by some mad architect! (no offense :) The plan reminds labyrinth... very hard to find your way around. It took us some time even to find the reception when we arrived!
The location is superb! The ocean beach is very beautiful. Better building plan would create a really nice ocean side resort!
If you book a room with "the partial ocean view" get ready to have a view of the roof with AC units! (Our room was #315) Only when you stand next to the window - you'll have your partial ocean view (but you'll have to put your face next to the glass!).
The room itself and amenities are good. Design of the bathroom area is awkward! Sink is in the separate room than the shower/bath and toilet. When you open the door to the bathroom - you cannot access the sink...
Heated swimming pool and jacuzzi that is open till 10pm is really nice!
We also liked our breakfast at their "Moonraker" restaurant (not included in hotel price and not cheap). The food , the service and the ocean view is very good! The interior design is quite dated...
It really takes only 20 min to get to San Francisco from there. Very convenient.
Another nice place to have a breakfast with the ocean view - Taco Bell place further down the highway.
Overall it was ok stay. I was disappointed to have a view of AC units instead of expected partial ocean view and did not like the layout of the hotel. Everything else was quite nice.
