Our first impression was not very good because the property is very old and right on the noisy highway but the room was large and clean, the bed was comfortable, and the staff was nice enough. Breakfast was exceptional and the staff behind the breakfast bar was helpful. They offer fresh biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, and more.
The reason it does not merit a higher rating:
The hotel smells very old and looks like it has not been refurnished since the 80's. We had a room on the highway side by choice - it is also the "ocean" side and you can see the beach through the highway on-ramp and train bridge. Yes, train bridge. The train goes by every once in a while too. Oddly enough, the constant freeway noise is rather like white noise and did not interrupt our sleep too badly. If you come back to the hotel late at night you may find it difficult to find parking but we got lucky each night with one of the last spots.
