First of all the room was clean and comfortable. It needed some tlc, but overall it wasn't bad. The people working there were friendly as well. If you're on a budget and you get a good price, don't be afraid to stay here. It's also close to downtown and the 101. My room had a highway/ocean view.
On the flip side, It was kind of noisy, and the people in the lobby could be heard all night. The fan did help to drown them out though. There were also tons of people smoking outside, and every time I walked in or out, I ended up smelling like smoke. There is a free happy hour, where you can get a Dixie cup of beer and some suspect chips and salsa. It's not great, but hey, it's free. The breakfast was the same way. It was free, and edible, but not great.
The shower was funky (not dirty, but strange) and sprayed all over the place. There were also several light bulbs that were out as well. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows needed to be retired.
Overall it was a solid 3 star place. It was fine for me, or friends, but I wouldn't recommend it to families (lots of people drinking byob in the lobby)
