“Showing its age and dirty.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

The room layout was great and the mattress seemed newer, but the comforter and sheet both has what looked like a blood stain The bathroom was DISGUSTING! The exhaust fan didn't work and the vent was covered in mold (clearly visible to housekeeping), the toilet bolts were also not secure so when you sat on the toilet it slammed against the wall when you got up. Behind the toilet was a very noticeable compact of blush that must have been dropped by the previous occupant and makeup went everywhere (again very obvious to me but housekeeping missed it). The bathtub also had sand in it as if it was never cleaned; there was no wash cloths upon my arrival and some toiletries were missing lending that my room was only have clean. When I told the front desk she simply said said "oh." In case a manager reads this it's room 409 - clean it!

My family and I just returned from our second trip to OC and our second stay at the Quality Inn Ocean Front. This is a small beach front property and as such has some issues, ie. Carpet, curtains, furniture could use some updating, no lifeguard, abundance of fake plants etc. However, for the price and the location, I consider the place a gem. The staff is friendly and were ready to accommodate us at every turn. The kids love the pools and the beach and I love the hot tub and the location. A couple of tips:
1. Try to book directly through hotel(use discount codes or AAA when booking), it will save you some headaches.
2. Ocean front rooms start with 01-16..example 101=first floor ocean view. The first floor efficiency units lead straight to the beach. End of the hallway rooms are quieter, close to the parking lots and again easier to access the beach. Atrium view is exactly that...however, the rooms at each end of the atrium do have a partial view of the ocean. Atrium rooms can be very noisy because they face the pool, the birds and there is constant guest traffic.
3. Bring heavy duty deep woods bug spray; the horse flies are merciless.
4. Like bbqing? There are grills right behind the outside pool!
5. There is a reading/playroom for those of you traveling with babies and the playground, although better suited for toddler is cute.
6. Hotel provides free laundry services(self service), just bring a small bottle of detergent.
7. Save yourself some $$$ stay in and cook breakfast or lunch. There is free coffee, herbal tea and fruit every day.
8. Want to spend $$$, try these fun-waterfront restaurants: BJs on the water, Seacrets, Fishtales and Dead Freddies...all good for adults and families.
Lastly...relax and don't get too frazzled about the little things.

Room Tip: See my review.

Recently stayed for 2 nights. There was a room ready when we arrived early so we checked in to find a clean room with a view of the atrium. The beds were comfortable and it was nice to have the mini kitchen at our disposal. The beach access was great and very convenient. We enjoyed the friendly staff. The exotic birds were a huge hit with our kids. Tina was very knowledgeable and willing to share the birds. At night, we were able to relax at the bar while the kids used the indoor pool. The Quality Inn made our mini stay very enjoyable and would definitely consider staying here on a return trip as the value for your money was worth it.

Room Tip: We stayed on the atrium side which is only accessible with outside stairs. Not a problem for us but...

We just got back from an adult get away. We spent most of the time at the bar and around the bar. The food and drinks at the bar where great. Melissa really loved the breakfast that the bartender Kate made for her this morning and the other bartender Kevin is one of the best bar tenders around. The front desk staff was great, Enjoyed the comic endeavors of the Jim he makes check in fun. The manager Tonya was very professional at all time and lara and kristy took of all our needs and took time out of the busy day to talk with us an make us feel welcome. We got room 136 was was an atrium view at the end of the hall. This room was very comfortable and quiet even thought it was right beside the bar. The hotel may not be a 5 star hotel but it is great family fun or an adult get away. The staff is what really makes this hotel truly shine

Room Tip: the ocean front side has a good view of the ocean the atrium view over looks the inside of the hotel...

Really enjoyed our stay at the Quality Inn Oceanfront. Right on the beach it was great for family while I attended an event at the convention center. The staff checked us in a few minutes early so there was time for an afternoon at the beach. The enclosed atrium area was really pleasant and I imagine a great retreat on a lousy beach day with an indoor pool and cafe/bar. The room was immaculate. Conveniently located for business and pleasure. Will stay again.

I have to agree with the previous reviewer (meechmelon). We stayed over the Labor Day weekend as well and but for the location, the hotel was pretty unsatisfactory. I wasn't sure if room service came in at all, as except the bed, sometimes the trash cans weren't emptied. And, just as we were about to leave, we spotted two bedbugs!! It was quite freaky and I'm amazed that we didn't get bitten after three nights. We took all our clothes (even the unused ones) and dunked them in hot water as soon as we returned home. Am still worried about those bugs and have left ours bags etc in the hot sun in our balcony... Wifi SUCKS!! And, they claim this is "new and improved". I guess compared to a no WiFi situation, it is an improvement. But, I couldn't even open Gmail with it! Am not returning here!

We paid $300/night during Labor Day weekend for an oceanfront room. The view was amazing. Right on the beach. The staff was friendly and helpful. BUT the room and the entire hotel was filthy. Our room smelled awful. (I had to wash the unworn clothes in our suitcase, because they picked up the musty smell of the room.) There were these sad-looking tropical birds in the courtyard. I felt so bad for them, locked in those ratty cages. The elevator was disgusting. The carpeting was this awful shade of green that no doubt was selected to hide all manner of stains. One of our bath towels had a stain as did the fold-up mattress of the portable crib we requested. Really gross.

Room Tip: I'd advise against staying here, but if you do... Ask for an oceanfront room on a high floor.
