The colorful design of the hotel is cute but there is no microwave or fridge in the rooms

Unique retro refurbished......I remember when this was a run down motel years back...it's now quite quaint with a hip n cool feel....fun bright room....a coffee house on site..discount coupon provided upon check-in....easy parking in front of room.....good shower in ADA room 130 but noisy next to street....next stay I'll ask for a room further from the road....very busy close to interstate ramps.... Shopping and lots of restaurants nearby.

I was pleased with the overall condition of the facility, the assistance of the staff and the cleanliness of my room. I do wish the hotel would either consider or to make optional, room amenities like a microwave and refrigerator. I'm not looking to cook meals in my room. It would be nice to have these appliances to reheat food I may take home from a restaurant or to have a place to store and keep water and or other beverages cool.

It was pretty nice, wish there was a microwave tho

Great decor. Comfy beds, nice TV. We’d stay again.

Very clean and newly re-done. Staff were friendly and the pool area and fire pit were so relaxing.

Nice beds, tv had all the channels we liked, and really like the little coffee shop they have several different kinds of tea. And pool was nice.

Very affordable. Right next to interstate so some road noise.

The Rambler was in a convenient location...close to beach, restaurants, shopping, freeway. They offered great extras for their guests...things to make smores out by the fire pit...use of bicycles for riding on the bike path to a nearby park..laundry facility (even though we didn't use it, it's nice to know they have it)...little cafe that offered food. The front desk service was awesome...very welcoming, friendly, and knowledgable of things to do in the area. Needed to have our tv fixed...maintenance came quickly and fixed the problem fast. We went to the next door casino...very pricey at the bar...didn't eat there, but it was nice knowing we had options. We'll be back!!!

I really loved the themed based room . The only thing was that the shower tub was rusty so i felt uncomfortable showering in there. Other than that everything was great

Secure parking for pickup towing a large boat. That is hard to find in SoCal

We had a nice stay at the Rambler. The best part of the stay was the coffee shop.

Worth every penny and very nice staff, kudos to the Cafe staff especially.
