Our second stop on the way down from San Francisco to San Diego then onto Vegas. Stayed two nights (wish it could have been more) after leaving Monterey Bay and doing the Big Sur then Hearst Castle. Reading through some of the earlier negative reviews made me laugh how one little thing can overshadow some peoples view of what has to be one of the bargain hotels out there (an earlier complanit about no movies made me laugh with the fact that there's a TV in your room with over 70 channels, several of them showing movies).
Amazing value for money $120/night (weekday)
Two double beds in the largest room we stayed in on our holiday.
Great view over the beach, from your balcony.
Free use of the sports center facilities over the road (good gym and indoor pool)
Good pool with jacuzzi and sheltered sun beds
Clean gardens, with security staff at night.
Free breakfast, although continental and basic (suited us down to the ground after eating too much at night)
Agree that they maybe taking their eye off the ball with regards service. Other hotels we stayed at were a little better. They were cutting the branches off the palm trees when we left but there was never any mention of this and it was rather noisy when you got outside.
You need to do most things by car, other than the attached restaurant most are a distance away.

Located on the coastline midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, our oceanfront inn is perched on a bluff overlooking the stunning and serene Pacific Ocean. From the comfort of your guest room watch a glorious sunset or catch a glimpse of a whale. During the day choose from a variety of outdoor activities and at night fall asleep to the rhythmic sound of ocean waves.The guest room décor reflects our seaside location with a neutral and ocean-toned palette accented by natural wood, tropical prints, and rich detail.
