Close to the beach, small European vibe, $15 "resort fee" was a surprise

Was very disappointed with them not serving breakfast, pools are closed and the parking is horrific yet they charge you for all the above. Room was very clean and staff was very nice. The room was wayyyy to small then what we’re used to.

Great location. Nice breakfast. Friendly staff. In rices if renovation.

Stuff was friendly and nice how everything was so close to the place.

The hotel looked clean enough but it just smelled funny. I thought it might have smelled like the ocean since it’s close to it (which is the only thing I liked) but the next hotel I was did not smell like that. I thought the bathroom smelled bad around the toilet area. The walls were way too thin. We heard all the conversations and TV from the room on the other side of wall where our bed was. They were not being loud and seemed to be carrying on a normal conversation, but it kept us up all night. The pillows were uncomfortable and we ended up not using them. The bed also sagged slightly in the middle so it just was not a comfortable sleep at all. This one was affordable but I would not recommend it.

They were doing some remodeling, but it was clean and nice. Room was nice. They had beach stuff to Barrow so that was cool.

Loved the location so close to the beach! The breakfast was really good, even included some hot items. Although the sitting area was small it was Kept clean and filled constantly. The parking was tough, spaces were compact and not enough. Upon arrival the room was a bit dirty and run down. It looks like they are still trying to renovate the place.

It was under construction so lots of scaffolding and plastic, should've been some kind of curiosity discount, the housekeeping staff was amazing and did a wonderful job, but the room condition was in need of lots of repairs...... wallpaper coming if the wall, furniture very banged up, not enough charging ports. Love the breakfast and area though.

location is perfect!! right on PCH. easy to get to all Southern CA beaches. has some great local restaurants walking distance. staff is always smiling. can't wait to stay here again!

Great place to stay and not far from the beach! I would definitely stay here again.

Location. Nice motel and nice staff. Very comfortable. The only issue was parking.

Pool was closed or getting remodeled wasn't available

Hotel was as expected; clean, close to beach, friendly staff, without having to take out 2nd mortgage. My only complaint was getting hit with $7/night parking. I don't recall seeing on original page, but just had the feeling of being gouged for 7 bucks. Full disclosure: I stayed 2 nights and had breakfast provided at facility I was visiting so I never tried the 'free breakfast'.

I thought this was a very nice hotel, across the street from a small residential neighborhood fronting the beach. The hotel provided beach chairs and umbrellas, which allowed us to sit and watch the spectacular waves. The only downside was that our room was right on Pacific Coast Highway, so we could not leave the window open due to traffic noise, but with the sounding proofing was fine. In addition, my bed was sagging, while my daughter's bed was perfect. Aside from these minor issues, we had a very nice stay, and the restaurants next to the hotel were great.

Awesome hotel with wonderful accommodating staff - they were friendly and helpful

I am glad you love and enjoy our location. We do have 2 parking lots with second lot having wider spaces for larger cars. Right now we are not under renovation but we will forward the note about the room to our house keeping team so they can take steps to ensure that it's clean and nice for all of our guests
