Room balcony had view for the outdoor pool deck and the beach and Pacific Ocean immediately beyond. The 2 King Bed room was large with luxurious full walk-in shower. Everything exceeded expectations for our visit. Had a great time.

The property was beautiful! And super clean. The staff was helpful and super friendly.

No coffee makers in the room. Staff wasn’t knowledgeable about the area. Rooms were huge. Breakfast was one of the best continentals I’ve had and I’ve traveled a lot. Don’t know if I’d stay again because the staff wasn’t really helpful but the facility was nice.

This property is truly ocean front and stunning. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The beds were comfy and clean. The daily breakfast was great and the beach chairs/umbrellas were nice to have access to. The one thing that needed some TLC was the condition of the exterior and balconies. Due to being on the ocean, I understand the wear and tear of beach living, but it's time to remodel. A gym would be great too!

The property is right on the Beach and very quite area. very accessible to the water. Staff are nice and friendly.

Love this place! Only issue was our room was not ready at 4pm. We were led to believe it was going to be ready early, but it wasn’t. The guy at the front desk said they had some housekeeping issues. I wish he would have said that in the beginnning.

When we visit again, we will request a ocean view room, but other than that it was awesome!

A very nice place right on the beach and walking distance to everything.

Have never had a room so close to the surf. Recently remodeled and very spacious. Highlight was watching sunsets from the room's balcony.

Easy check in, very relaxing resort! Very friendly staff, nice continental breakfast! Loved the pool and Jacuzzi! Our room was extremely spacious with a breath taking view!

Very Nice hotel on the beach. Great staff, nice pool and Jacuzzi! Beautiful view!

Nicely decorated rooms, comfortable beds, big bathrooms with large walk In Showers made my stay comfortable . Location was great on the beach and walking distance to shops and restaurants. Employees were friendly for most part. Steep stairs to second floor room was not easy for someone with knee problems And carrying heavy luggage. Quiet and safe neighborhood. Weather was cold during our stay so couldn't use beach chairs and loungers but appeared very nice. Free parking in lot across from hotel was convenient. There was a small fridge in the room but no microwave.

Love it!! Right in front of the beach. Provided towel, chair n umbrella to sit out on the beach. Room is clean n we are able to just walk to all the restaurants

Very nice stay. The staff was extremely friendly. Loved being right on the ocean.

Beautiful, spacious room, comfortable bed, gorgeous views. Outstanding place to wind up a road trip. Points to pay attention to: pricey, there can be considerable steps to get to your room floor with no elevator, and in light of the most beautiful bathroom we had on a 12 day coastal road trip, the water pressure was low. The shower was gorgeous but very low pressure coming from the rain head. All that said we loved our stay.

I was looking for a beach getaway and this couldn't have been any better! Hotel was literally on the beach. Exactly what I was looking for. The staff was very friendly and helpful! Will definitely go back!

We were traveling with two small kids under age of 3 and while the hotel met our every expectation, I would not come back with small kids. The looks we received from other guests when our kids would laugh or show excitement on the way to the beach or pool made us very uncomfortable. And the many stairs and small passageways made it hard to load and unload. BUT, when I am ready for a nice adult vacation or the kids are older (like teenagers) this would be my first choice. Friendly staff, GREAT location. If I wasn't so busy trying to stop my kids from acting happy, I would have had the perfect trip.

Highly recommend staying at this place. Perfect view and location as it is right on the beach. My only complaint would be that housekeeping missed a few spots...there was a pile of sand on the balcony (I was on the 2nd floor) and the railing had someting smeared on it (maybe boogers) from the prior guest I assume.

The hotel location is fantastic, rooms and beds were small.
