Perfect for a quick get-a-way

The hotel's in a great location. Close to all the freeways. Restaurants for all palates within 5 minutes by car.The beaches and Boardwalk's a short distance away. Ninese Marks National Forest was less than 15 minutes away. From the hotel, you can hit all the major attractions in either direction in less than 15 minutes.Great for people who wanted to leave the car and walk. Prices (gas/restaurants/events) were reasonably priced. Enough events to handle all ages/interests. Would defintely return to both the town and hotel. Enjoy!!!!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Look for free/inexpensive events and make an adventure of it...i.e. spend the day at the beach where you can picnic, fish, roller skate..etc... all in the same location so that once you pay the fee, you're set for the day.....

very clean room

The room that we got at first smelled really bad. I had to ask for another room and they changed it with much better room with no smell at all. I was wondering why they didn't give that second room to us in the first place.

overpriced

I stayed here for new years eve and although the room was fine, I had requested the king size bed and instead got a queen. I didn't complain until I found out another couple we were with had paid less and gotten a king. Disappointing

Just OK

Well we were given one room, my husband went to sit on bed, and it colapsed. Now my husband is not overly heavy (6ft 235lb) so we had to get a new room. Bathroom was very small. It had a very perfumy smell, like they try to overdue the freshener. Walls are thin. If you just need one night, then go for it. I would not come back to this place.
