We stayed here for 3 nights during our 3 week honeymoon tour of California. After the drive from san Diego it was lovely to arrive at the airy, spacious lobby and to have the car swiftly taken care of.
Unfortunately check in was not so efficient as we had a 5 minute wait due to a queue and only one staff member on duty.
The room was an ocean view looking directly onto the pier and beach. it was well equipped with a good bathroom and lovely shower. However the rooms are fairly small and therefore compact.
The windows are very well glazed and any street noise is blocked when the doors are closed.
The pool area is well kept and comfortable.
The hotel is perfectly situated for shopping and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance.
It could benefit from an inhouse restaurant and bar, and with these limited facilities, and size of room, we felt it did not offer the same value for money as the other 4 and 5 star hotels we stayed in during our tour.
