Started off great. Got chocolate chip cookies at check in but went down hill from there. Routine maintenance on the hotel limited parking. Room was clean and had large rooms and ample bed space for our family of six. Have 4 kids ranging in age from 4 to 17. It was really windy the first day of our trip so we decided to relax a little in the room. Had the windows open. Room started filling with cigarette smoke. This non-smoking motel has balconies that are not private and our next door neighbor was puffing away. Asked Angela at the front desk if there was another room available since our young son has asthma and second-hand smoke is a trigger for attacks. She assured us everything would be fine and she apparently called the room to tell them to stop. Made them mad so they took every opportunity to slam doors, beat on walls, etc. Funny the neighbors put so much effort into making noise because the walls are so thin it didn't matter. Mirrors, pictures, etc. shook everytime they closed a door. Pool and spa were nice nothing special but clean. Was really awkward walking down to the beach because we had to walk in front of other patios on the property. Less than 10 feet from room doors. Certainly wouldn't want to stay in one of those rooms-no privacy. At 11:00 p.m. we were awakened by the office because someone had called the front desk to complain that we were walking too heavily and making too much noise. Didn't have the energy to argue so just hung up the phone. Slept terribly because the beds are super hard. Motel is right off highway 101 so lots of traffic noise. Heard every semi and emergency vehicle. Awoke to garbage truck right outside our window at 8 a.m. Shower water temp varied. Mostly cold. Motel has lots of rules and has no problem enforcing them even if you aren't breaking them. Way overpaid for this room!! Stay somewhere else and avoid this place.
