Had a blast in OC

Had a great time in OC. The hotel was clean,quiet and comfortable. Only slight issue I had was I was told I was getting a room with an ocean view so I expected a room facing the ocean but it was facing to the side, still had somewhat of an ocean view but you should ask if this is important to you. Overall I would recommend this hotel and can't wait til my next trip to OC.

Good price Good hotel

The Hotel is right on the beach which is awesome. It is now five star hotel but I was pleased withe the friendly staff and clean rooms. If you go on vacation to spend your time in a hotel spend more money and get something else. If you just need a place to sleep and a quick rest its perfect. You can get out of bed take two steps and be on you balcony watching the waves crash on the beach. To me that makes it a great room!!!

Philips seafood buffet is an awesome place. If you want some of the best Italian in the world at a very good price try Flavors Of Italy. You wont be disappointed either way.

Excellent Hotel

Location a little far down the boardwalk but this can be viewed as either an advantage or disadvantage, as it is therefore much quieter! Right beside the beach, rooms beautiful, very spacious with kitchen area. Definitely reccommend this hotel to anyone!!
