Stayed here at the end of our anniversary trip to San Diego and Vegas. The hotel is getting a bit dated in terms of decor, but the staff and management are obviously trying very hard to do the best they can with what they've got. There is a bit of a 'motel' feel to the place, but the rooms are a good size, the location is excellent, and the staff were generally very friendly and helpful.
With it being the last couple of nights of our trip, and our actual anniversary, I'd exchanged a few emails with Angela to arrange some bubbles for us that evening and the nearby JRDN restaurant to be booked. Both were arranged, although it did need a little double checking as Angela wasn't working while we were there, and it didn't seem apparent that anybody else knew about it. That said, on check in we were upgraded for both nights - it did involve us needing to move rooms, but this was sorted out by the hotel staff, and was handled seamlessly, so top marks for that! :)
Both rooms we stayed in were well appointed, a good size and comfortable, however the decor is a little dark for the beach location. Some brighter colours would help the place feel a bit lighter. The rooms did have ipod docks and pretty large flat screen TVs, and complimentary wifi throughout the hotel. Having a computer on each floor is a nice touch, and a printer was extremely useful for printing off vouchers for nearby attractions/airline tickets etc.
Some of the rooms could have been noisy being by the road, but we certainly didn't have any problems on that front. It was particuarly nice having a balcony on the first night to have a bottle of wine, and eat a huge pizza from nearby 'Amore' overlooking the ocean.
