It was a convenient location near freeway and beaches. I liked the effort to use more modern furniture in the room but the property is nothing like the pictures. The grounds were gross. Walkways and parking lot dirty and trash in some parts. Lots of old gum and residue on stairs. Pool area looked dirty and grounds with peeling paint. Handle fell off cabinet just opening it. Pillows were not comfortable. Tv remote was dated and didn’t work well. Freeway was noisy and hard to sleep. I try to be positive and open minded but for $140 this was the most disappointed stay I’ve had.

Room air conditioner broken, coffee maker broken, badly in need of update.

Great value for the money. An A/C in our suite did not work and there was several electrical outlets not functioning, very noisy plumbing. Otherwise, friendly staff, nice to have a descent selection for the breakfast. Overall would stay again

Needs to remodel. They changed the name to Best Western and told no one

Very nice staff. Great food and clean environment.

Great customer service... Clean environment and nice rooms

Staff were great, but the hotel was under construction and it would have been mice to know that before booking.

Our suite had cockaroches so we were moved to another suite. We had to pack everything up and move suites.

Too close to the freeway and very noisy. The bath room air Ben to noisy when you turn the lights on

Too much construction going on ,the jacuzzi was not maintained ,breakfast was great but it was across the street at La Quinta due to construction

Staff was great, kids had a lot of fun. Only downfall was that property is under construction and you have to eat breakfast across the street.
