Quick Beach Stay

The hotel location is good. Parking is split between two sides of the road, so you want to get there before all the spots are taken in the main lot. The room was large and comfortable. The beds were comfortable too. Bathroom was small but clean. The pool area left something to be desired. The biggest issue with the hotel is the elevator system. There are 3, and there are 16 floors... you can imagine how fun it is to catch one when checking out with bags (since lots of people check out around the same time), or trying to catch a non-full elevator to head down to the main level at any given time.

Quick Getaway

We booked this hotel at the last minute for a quick get away. The room wasn't ready when we arrived at 12noon on Sunday, but by 2:30pm we had the room. Overall, it was faster than I expected especially when at 5pm the lobby was packed with people waiting. Overall, the staff was friendly. Mostly the housekeeping staff - everyone we passed in the halls always said hello and asked how everything was. Rooms were clean, didn't use the amenities besides the beach, but it was a quick one night getaway.

Clarion Hotel

Great hotel was able to book at the last minute. Close to the ocean, indoor/outdoor pools - store inside hotel and food/club place. Would stay there, whenever I return to OC.

Save your money!

This property is dated and needs some major renovations and/or updating. The "d├ęcor" is circa "1975-ish." The elevators are extremely slow. Their idea of an "ocean view" is walking out on an approximately 2 foot triangular "balcony" and looking to the left (or right). The ice machine on my floor did not function. The sauna in the fitness center did not function. The property had a musty odor. Although this hotel does NOT rate 3 stars, it has great potential. It is way overpriced in its current condition!
