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.

Nothing special, but OK

This place is nothing special, but it's OK if you're looking for a place to sleep and take a shower. It can get a bit noisy at night, but it's nothing really bad, but I guess people with small children might find it a bit troublesome. Overall, I think this is a good deal for the price, considering the location, if not the best.

Not bad for the price!

The hotel itself is fine. I was very disappointed in the pool/Jacuzzi. The pictures on the Orbitz site are misleading. It seems that there is a pool, but actually there is a jacuzzi. I should have read more closely, but the pictures are what sold me.

Worked for us

We needed a relatviely inexpensive place to stay in Huntington with easy excess to the beach. Although this motel was not too close to the beach, it was a straight shot down Beach Blvd. to get there. It was in a good part of town on a main road with lots of dining options. We were'nt expecting too much, and this place worked fine for our short weekend trip.
