excellent location and friendly service

Great location and extremely courteous staff. Did not care for mandatory valet parking, but vehicle was always cared for and brought to us almost immediately. No long wait. Restaurant was very nice both casual yet classy. Rooms were very clean and all had a beach view. Some rooms had better view of the beach than others, but all had some view. Easy walking distance to the beach, the pier, and all of the local shops, restaurants and pubs. Less than an hour drive from Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, and Hollywood. Traffic in and around was always reasonable and never congested. Highly recommend this location for either a romantic getaway, or a family vacation.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

If going to Disneyland, make sure you arrive as early in the day as possible. Finding parking during the busy part of the day will take up a major part of your time that could be better spent enjoying the attractions and shopping

Awesome Beach resort

Overall the hotel is excellent! we visited in Sept so presumably they were expecting it to be "out of season" .. but we really needed additional poolside servers (there was only one!).

Great place to stay!!!

We really enjoyed the proximity to the beach. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I wish the pool would have been cleaner. I saw lots of nats in it and the water looked foggy.

Great Location, Great Checkin

I arrived late but they were able to work with me just fine. I loved the location right next to the beach, no hassle at all. Easy to get inside to your room and easy to get your car from Valet.

Outstanding Hotel

This was an outstanding hotel and a great value for the money. Right across PCH from beach, courteous staff and helpful staff. Close to good restaurants, (Joe's Crab Shack 4 miles down PCH), big fluffy towels in bathroom with all the other ameneties provided. Great food and a terrific view from room balcony of beach and shoreline.

above average

Pleased with cleanliness, view and accessibility to other places. Concierge staffing was disappointing since no one was physically ever at the desk
