Fabulous

The hotel is right on the beach with good pier access and easy walks to restaurants. Noise is a huge problem but the beds are very comfortable! The restaurant in house has outstanding good though the personality of the woman in charge is not friendly overall and she is only tangentially interested in serving customers. The jacuzzis are amazing. We ventured out early and saw whales just offshore and sea lions. Swimming was amazing just as I remembered fr my belly boarding and body surfing days. Shopping for beach stuff is easy. Parking is close by at the municipal lot for $15 a day with easy multiway pay machines. Fabulous time.

Wedding!!

We stayed at the Balboa for our son and daughter in laws wedding. It was comfortable and convenient. The persons working there could not have been any more accommodating and friendly. We felt like we were treated special but then realized they are wonderful to everyone! Super visit! The only suggestion would have been to wipe the dew off of the tables and seats in the morning at the breakfast area.

Overall good stay

Great location, good service. My room was a little small but manageable with one person. Location is a little tricky, hard to find.

Overrated

Dirty wood floors; old, cracked bathroom tiles; torned shower curtain; one small towel rack for everyones' bath towels; no extra electric plugs; had to plug small coffee pot on stairwell. Extra charge for WIFI; $25/night for parking; no ice machine; steep, unlit staircase to suite; no smoke alarm in living & sleeping area. Noisy cantina across the street; deafening jet noise from Orange county airport all day and all night. Definitely not worth the price, even with 40% discount. Our family will not return and will not recommend it to anyone.

Black Mold in the bathroom

I stayed in Dec. 2013, from the black mold in the bathroom to the filthy and holes in the carpets. I paid over $300.00 for a suite that was more smelly than suite. When we checked in the girl was so busy on her cell phone she couldn't be bother in finding a map of the area. Do yourself a favor don't stay there. We called to ask for help on the fireplace which was broken the staff could have cared less. After thinking about it for a month, in January I called the manager, as of yet he hasn't returned my phone call. I don't want my money back, but just to tell people be careful, the pictures on the web site aren't true.
