I must have driven by this place fifty times and always wanted to stop for the night. However, after reading some of these reviews, I was more than a bit apprehensive. I'm glad I took a chance and risked it! This is a very cool stop. We were delayed by a road closure and were driving in from Ventura when Dan (the manager) called. He was concerned that the on-site restaurant was about to close and we'd be left without dinner. How often does that happen? We had an nice chat with Dan on our arrival and he pointed out the new floodlight that illuminates the waves at night. Wow! It's a really nice touch. The rooms all face the surf. Some have big picture windows, but they all have a great view of the ocean. The waves are crashing a hundred feet from your room!
This is an older hotel, but it was squeaky clean, as were the pool and the restaurant. The king bed was quite comfortable. Breakfast was typical continental style, but the coffee was excellent. Bottom line: This is not the Ritz. But it is a great little hotel at a very fair price. If your driving up the Coast....don't miss this one!
