Property is very rundown. Needs a big update.

The staff didn’t say anything while checking in. I booked a king, they gave me double queen...at least tell me you’re out of King rooms. Mold in the bathroom. Door didn’t lock. Hairdryer has a filthy filter. Faucets, beds, floors all need to be upgraded. This is the worst Holiday Inn I’ve ever stayed at.

Old, dated hotel and rooms, also stained carpet in the room. Mildewy smell and old stained furniture. The bed was clean and the only thing I was comfortable touching. I needed a place to stay during a drive up the coast. I would never stay here again.

The room was a little outdated - needed new carpet.

Great place to stay. Friendly service and great breakfast in the morning.

Garbage on ground and stairways, dirty carpet in hallway

Room was clean and property was generally good. The breakfast had very limited variety and a pretty small room. It was crowded but ok. Some earlier reviews mentioned noise from the freeway but we didn't hear anything. Happy with the stay

Our room was noisy and we could hear everyone walking around above us. The air conditioning unit was also very loud and the carpet felt unpleasantly sticky on bare feet.

I liked that it was very near the beach. Room was nice, big, and kept clean

Staff was pleasant and I appreciated the complimentary water

Very nice little spot and they’re going to renovate after the summer rush. Enjoyed the pool and hottub when it was too windy at the beach. Great family owned brewery at the plaza below, ManRock Brewery.

Nice hotel, and the staff very pleasant and helpful. Would stay here again.

Nice quiet hotel, enjoyed the pool, friendly staff

Nowhere close to beach as stated in ad. Overpriced and disappointing.

Clean room. Easy check in. Spacious room for family of 4.

5 minute drive to the beach. Clean rooms. Excellent service (Michelle at the front desk is awesome). Good channels (HBO and HDMI TV connection for our ipad). Quiet at night. Beautiful grounds and pool/jacuzzi. Same parking lot as AJ Spurs (go hungry and get the 1/2 beef ribs & 1/2 pork ribs). Great HOT breakfast. Stayed here 3 times and will be back.

Very good and pleasant staff work with us when we had an issue with our room and got the problem resolved

This is the best hotel we have found in the area. the breakfast was a pleasant surprise, the small stuffed egg pockets were tasty and the coffee was good. The room was comfortable and well cared for. We have no complaints.
