Score from 234 reviews Very good
They put us next to teenage boys who stayed up shouting all night
Not much it was ok
Good location within walking distance to downtown and the pier, but right next to the freeway. Nice happy hour in the evening and good breakfast. Very nice, but not spectacular rooms and wi-fi.
Fix the elevator, if anything, a little questionable in sounds and slowness
Convenience to: town, beach, pier, mission, to everything! Breakfast Afternoon Happy Hour Bedding; comfy and CLEAN!
My room was clean and orderly, room smelled nice and restroom was super clean. Breakfast was great, everyone seemed really happy and not in a hurry to leave. Overall experience Excellent, Thank you.
Location was great for walking to pier/beach and also downtown
Needs upgrading everywhere but functional.
Afternoon cocktail hours
Very clean hotel, close to the beach , friendly service, good breakfast, free WIFI working perfect.
Upon my check-in I asked for a late check-out (just an extra hour) and was told I needed to request it the next morning. When I requested the extra hour the next morning, the staff said no. I thought that was very unprofessional and told them so. The hotel itself felt a little dingy, run-down and low-end. The little things weren't looked after.
The location was awesome. A couple blocks from the best part of Main St. And the room was large. Plus, I didn't need to satisfy my girlfriend's more discriminating needs so I was ok. If I was with my girlfriend, this would have been a big no! Guys traveling solo are different. I was there to ride my road bike around the area and I was looking for someplace to shower, sleep and get back on the road - so it worked.
Close to beach and pier. Convenient to the mission and downtown district.
What's not to like?
Spacious room, location on the beach, friendly staff, incredible breakfast, fun Happy Hour, great reakfast.
Happy Hour consisted of popcorn, pretzels, cheap tortilla chips with salsa, and a bartender who was absolutely inattentive to all but one guest. The elevator was very slow, and I didn't dare take the stairs from underground parking.
Friendly staff asked whether I wanted a room on the ocean/freeway side or the quieter parking lot side. The location is great; I was able to park my car and walk everywhere. Everything was clean and well-maintained.
We traveled here from the UK and thought the hotel was great. Clean rooms, free breakfast and happy hour with free snacks/wine/beer 5-7pm. Oh and the free cookies on reception. Heated pool and tub - nice and hot. We had a room the opposite side to the freeway and couldn't here it at all. Close walk to the beach and town. Thanks for a lovely stay!!
Ocean view, fireplace and breakfast for under $100!!
Note: hotel is directly next to freeway & Balconies are like enclosed boxes with windows. This minimizes traffic sounds, but is not great for relaxing with the view. Next stay I will opt for a city view or non balcony room.
Staff was very accommodating & friendly. Problem with room was quickly & professionally corrected with lots of smiles. Excellent Breakfast- not the usually included with room. Train passing with horn was part of the coastal charm.
HARD TO PICK A SINGLE "BEST"
Even though this hotel is backed up to the freeway ( as most of the good ones are) if you stay on the parking lot side there is no noise from the traffic and the location to the beach and to old downtown is fantastic
It could us new carpets and furnishings. With a new look it would be great place to stay.
It was comfortable, with a great breakfast service and very comfortale bed. Very large room and convenient location.
The staff took care of everything. It was a nice experience all around.
Loud slamming doors. Elevator was slow and shakey.
The location. The fridge wasn't working well at first but they fixed real quick by giving us a brand new one. Pretty big space, nice view.
During check-in I asked for a late check out, and was told I would have to ask at 7:30 the morning or checkout, and to ask the housekeeper. I told the lady I would be gone by then, she told me to call. I told her I would be running a marathon and would not be able to do so. She shrugged. Everywhere else, it is the job of the desk to followup on my requests. What happened here? This is my only complaint about this place.
Location to the beach is wonderful. I like trains, so the west-facing rooms overlook the train track, getting the sound as they pass. For me fine. If you don't like trains, ask for a room facing the front of the building. Underground parking available. Wi-fi is free and fast.
Low sink counter tops. Not fun for tall guys like me.
Good facilities for the price. Easy access from freeway to downtown.
Excellent location, close to downtown restaurants and freeway; clean and quiet; good breakfast.
