Nothing Special

It was an okay experience. Nothing special. The evening shift clerk was COLD and unfriendly. She was more interested in talking with her friends who were checking in with a dog where clearly "No Pets Allowed" sign was posted. It was clean without room stank except for the smokers who puffed outside my non smoking room where the smell came in my air unit. Not nice. The breakfast didn't even have the usual waffle maker. Had a little fruit, some stale muffin things and oatmeal packages. No protien, no yogurt. It is a fairly good part of town in that it is on a busy are. For a little more money could stay somewhere nicer.

Fun little getaway

Staff is wonderful! A short $15 can ride to Main Street and an energizing 30 min. bike ride to the pier. Room is very comfy :)

The hotel was ok

The room was clean. Not much provided for the continental breakfast. Other hotel guests were a little rowdy and loud...lots of beer bottles left around the pool area.

Decent hotel with some little things that could be better

The hotel was a very convenient location between Huntington's actual beach and Anaheim. Most rooms are up the stairs, but I didn't check to see how their elevator was. The room seemed remodeled with nice carpet, tile, and furnishings which made the slightly cracked sink and also shower tub with old anti-slip strips seem out of place. Otherwise the beds were comfortable and noise was little to none. Breakfast in the morning was fairly minimal with 2 cerial choices, a few different small pastries, and a few fruits. The breakfast area is one of the smallest I've seen and its adjacent to the check-in counter with only one table and 1-2 chairs to sit at. Noon checkout was super convenient though. I would recommend this for a convenient one night stay.

Family vacation

Office staff very friendly and helpful. Willing to give directions and help with finding specific atractions in the area. Older hotel, maintained well. The comp. b-fas was not worth waking up for. Best bet is to go to the local WalMart and stock you fridge in your room. Otherwise, great place to stay, Comfortable. t

Just what I need

I find myself down in that area at least once a month and have found this hotel the best for the price. Clean, quiet and friendly staff. I don't need much and this satisfies everything I need
