I read about the stairs in the reviews, (no elevators) but figured it wouldn’t be much of a problem, but I’m 62, so kinda but can’t say I didn’t know. I loved walking to the beach every day! Good food and bars all around location! On highway, so kinda noisy but worth it. The floors are not carpeted so people above you noisy (I brought earplugs from reading reviews) just walking around. But windows open were nice to let in that sea air! The pillows were way to high for me. I tried to punch them down but didn’t work. Had no towels, but they brought me some right away. No smoking, so I used the stairs a LOT to go off property. All in all a cool place and staff. Thanks for the memories!

No frills. Easy walk or quick bike to the beach. Nice front desk gentleman. Only problem was a gap between the door and floor to the hallway and the floor was not visibly dirty but my socks would say otherwise.

Very good location for the price we paid in June 2020. Our room was obviously recently redone. My only suggestion would be upgrading the door leading to upstairs as well as the carpeting on those stairs. Not a good first impression, but we were relieved when we saw our room was nicer than expected.

The hotel room it’s self was amazing. The staff was great! The carpet and walls in the hallway were a little dirty, but I didn’t think it mattered because we were gone or in our room most the time. Rooms look like they have been completely remodeled, and are really nice! Much better than I was expecting and amazing for the price!

Clean and spacious room - propert offers no amenities but is close to the water. Efficient check in and good value

A/C was loud at night and seemed to not properly ventilate and cool down room. Rooms are overall decent but not the best. A good place to stay overnight but not for an extended period of time.

The person that greets us was great, helpful and friendly. I definitely stay here again. Also, the rooms were very clean.

This place was perfect, friendliest place I have ever stayed. Room was awesome. Someone on here complained about the carpet walking up the stairs to the room, well it outside so of course it’s gonna be a little dirty . Big deal. Location is awesome. Couldn’t ask for more. I highly recommend this place

Very clean and quiet. Exactly what we were looking for. Walking distance to Sunset beach, Starbucks and food. Seal Beach is a mile or so away. No breakfast options, but plenty of places to find something to eat, or buy and stash in mini fridge. Loved the location and laid back stay. Thank you!

The staff was helpful, our blankets were stained but clean and a bit old. There was a homeless man sleeping in the hallway. He was not a harm but this was a little alarming. I was on holiday with my dad and he’s very old fashioned and felt weird. The water doesn’t get very hot but the staff was very fast and helpful. Seemed like good people and wasn’t the worst experience. I slept well and we were by the beach breeze.

Newly renovated and close to beach! No elevator but easy access.

Beach decor, near beautiful beach & jetted tub 😊❤️ Cute room, huge bathroom/shower and separate jetted tub. We will stay again.

Recommend this hotel if you are looking for a reasonably priced and exceptionally clean/quiet hotel. It was close to the beach and a multi-purpose running/biking path for a great run on and/or along the beach as well as within walking distance of several restaurants.

The remodel is awesome..dont expect any food or elevator..parking sucks..2 towels are u kidding me..come on...but impressed with the remodel!!

Nice, clean, very clean, everything brand new. Comfy bed, slept really well. 3 minutes walk from the beach, free parking. I will definitely stay there again.
