The location would be great, were it not for being adjacent to the freeway and train tracks. They try to remedy this with a sleep therapy CD and earplugs, but it just doesn't cut it. If your looking for a quiet oceanfront hotel, this isn't the place.
The food in a word, -- miserable. We ordered room service - the chicken piccata was terribly salty and very dry and the baked potato was greasy, gummy and cold.
On the positive side, the service was OK, and the staff was friendly.
Overall, not a very positive experience, but the price was right. I won't stay here again, though. We'll splurge next time and be a little more particular.
