Beds were uncomfortable. Our rug was wet after showers and the wall area was a little soft. Boiled eggs were overdone.

Close to the beach.... clean and comfortable. I’ll stay here again.

Nice basic hotel room. Good location. Awful breakfast.

Decent place. Convenient to boardwalk. Front desk wasn't very inviting

The room was nice and clean, we liked that it was close to the beach.

I would recommend based on your need. Our room had a kitchen but it was very outdated. 70’s. The room curtains don’t close. Which I did not like. Room was clean and well stocked. Our keys would not work and we had to be let in by management every time.

It was good but it said Ocean View it was not a good view

Rooms are clean, a bit small but have everything needed for the stay. Lots of great restaurants nearby. Great view of wharf. Lots to explore within just a few miles.

Hotel management was very rude and will never stay again

I stayed one night and found the hotel to be CLEAN and COMFORTABLE. Great location to walk to city pier for dinner and see the sea lions. I would stay here again.

We've stayed here before and had a nice experience, this time however was different. We had to wash the toilet just to use it, very uncomfortable bed, just felt dirty. I hope they address these issues because they are in a great location.

hotel is a great location, walking distance to the pier and boardwalk, just a couple of minutes from downtown. Room was bright and clean.. I believe the price we paid was a good value. The staff was freindly and efficient. A most pleasent stay. If you are going to use the jacuzzi ask the fornt desk what tempature they are keeping it at. we asked them to make the water hotter

Thank goodness for location and friendly staff or this hotel would really be in trouble. From a bath tub that doesn't drain, to a towel rack that falls on the floor, you couldn't even escape to the hot tub because it was set too hot to touch! Better luck next time

We stayed in a small group of rooms detached from the main hotel. Walls were very thin (much moaning next door). Breakfast was skimpy.

The hotel staff were very nice. Early checkin was afforded. Room was small but very clean and ammenties were provided. The bed however was extremely uncomfortable as I could feel the springs coming through.

The hotel was a great value for the price! The staff was extremely friendly and it is a couple block from the beach. The hotel is also very close to the restaurants and shops on Pacific Avenue.
