Nice and friendly staff. Reasonable price. The hotel is on the pier and you need to drive everywhere. Rooms are a bit small if you get one on the lower floors. The ocean view rooms are nice. They have free bike rentals and a great restaurant as well.

We stayed here for a week and it was fabulous. Very clean very comfortable lovely big rooms & very comfortable bed. The staff were excellent & there was free wifi in the lounge which worked very well - as some do not !! The hotel is near to all the local restaurants & we could walk every day around the local area & some lovely sea food restaurants nearby. There is free coffee in the rooms soap shampoo body lotion etc & best of all free bikes every day. We had travelled from Manchester England & were made very welcome. The hotel restaurant was excellent across the way especially the breakfasts. 10 out of 10 for this Hotel loved it so thank you to everyone who made our stay a really good one. Mrs L. Wainwright

Elegant, casual and comfortable all at once. The exterior may make you question what you spent, but walk inside! Great beds and linens, beautiful decor that makes you relax! Sparkling clean inside, recently renovated, and pretty landscaping. Friendly, helpful staff, and housekeeping does a wonderful job. Enjoyed very good, though not inexpensive, breakfast at the restaurant on site. The ocean view isn't much to bark about, due to a breakfront that hides your view of the open water. We enjoyed watching the sea lions, however. Their morning and evening barking didn't trouble us. Spacious lobby and lounge area with fireplace, bar area (open some nights). Nice location, away from traffic.

Room Tip: Great choice for adults, too pricey for our family. If barking sea lions would make you cranky, choo...

I stayed at the hotel for a 5 day long business meeting. I was really impressed by how friendliness of the workers. They were just really pleasant and engaged in giving you a good experience. I observed the catering folks for a whole week during the meetings, and they were on top of their game. Dirty dishes were bussed out of the room regularly. Snack and drinks were refresched exactly on time. It was a great hotel for an event. The rooms were nice, clean and well-maintained.

We stayed here for one week, payed extra to have an ocean view rather than being on the marina side.

It was nice to have the ocean however not much privacy on the balcony as no real divisions between balconies and for some people the hotel puts everyone next to each other.

Also there is a rock division so you don't get the sound of the ocean waves.

Daily cleaning of rooms was noticeably under par, didn't like that they would move our belongings to clean and then place them differently than how they found them.

A necklace was lost.

One of the days the room was not even cleaned.

Service at the front desk was okay, depending on who helped you. Two guys were very nice, women, one seemed like the manager, too much attitude, like she was doing us a favor by doing her job.

Beds comfortable. Water pressure okay, didn't have hot water one morning.

Internet extra charge in room as well as parking.

Overall decent enough a little far from Santa Monica, wouldn't feel like driving to hotel to change and go back out to dinner.

This is a terrific older (but updated) California-style beach hotel. Front desk staff are very nice and welcoming. The lobby bar area is terrific. Great music and light. Windows open to the ocean make it lovely. The bar needs to work on the wine list, and the "handcrafted cocktails" advertised are nonexistent.

Guest rooms are large and nicely-appointed. Good size bathrooms. Standard shower/bath combo. Very clean and high-end bulk bathroom amenities. Definitely get an ocean view room and leave the balcony door open the whole time you are there. The ocean breeze blowing in can't be beat.

Beds are new and firm. Linens are very nice.

Breakfast at Baleen on outside next to the marina is excellent. Service was relaxed but very friendly.

Rate was good for a property of this quality and given the location. It's an easy place to stay is you need to be close to LAX (only a 15 or so minute drive and far better than all the hotel right around LAX).

Room Tip: Balcony rooms with ocean view are great.

We stayed here for 3 nights & got upgraded to an ocean-view room with a great patio to sit out and enjoy the boats, waves and sunshine. Room was clean and spacious, with comfortable king bed . Staff was very friendly and received great service from Sebastian; including recommendation for dinner at nearby kincaid's. My husband and I also enjoyed drinks and apps at their restaurant Baleen's. Overall, great experience & would stay again when we come back to the west coast!
