“Clean but "dated", rude staff and limited parking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The room was clean but could really use some updating. Parking is a pain and there aren't many spots, but It is an easy walk to the wharf. The staff is incredibly rude, but if you don't need to work with them for anything other than checking in, you will probably be alright.

Personally, I won't stay again unless there is no other choice.

The room and ocean view was exactly what we were looking for: clean, spacious, walking distance to Warf, shops, boardwalk and not far from downtown on Pacific Ave! The staff, Ana and Pretty were very friendly and because of them, I'll be back soon! Thank you for the great stay!
