Staff were absolutely superb. Room was clean. Just what I needed when I had a cold to finish off a long holiday in CA.
Friendly staff Great location Great value
They cheapened up the breakfast since the last time I was here. I stayed three days, and the coffee service was never replenished. No cups or coffee on the last two days.
Nice bed and location
Location, staff & breakfast
I was amazed at the high quality furnishings, cleanliness, décor, breakfast buffet, friendliness of staff and easy access/location and overall experience.
I would have liked a larger potty area for the dogs outside, i.e.: larger grassy area equipped with baggies and disposal cans.
All staff very friendly & helpful. Great continental breakfast. Close to freeway & race track! Loved having small refigerator and morning paper delivered to room.
Rooms air conditioning was not working. Room clean except curtains.
1. staff was super friendly and helpful. 2. location to the beach. (although not walking distance) 3. food was fresh for a continental buffet. 4. large refrigerator in room
1. the fan in the bathroom didn't work so the mustiness/humidity was terrible. 2. carpet was stained 3. closet doors were hard to open. 4. no microwave I just felt that I paid $200/night for the location. This is an older hotel and the room itself was not the quality you should get for $200/night.
Very friendly & helpful staff!! And very nice to our dog,too!!!
Very clean, great room with nice, quiet comfort controls. B'fast was excellent and the Noon checkout was appreciated. Great value! I will be back in a couple of weeks!
The staff was fantastic. Everyone was so friendly and helpful!
The room had a slightly musty odor which I believe was from the carpet. The carpets just need to be replaced.
No microwave in room 232
The size of the bed
Noise, smelly , a bit dated , the pool was a joke .
The bedding being fresh without the old style spreads
great location! close to downtown and about a mile from the beach. Staff was very accomodating. The room itself was pretty good for the price.
I was expecting more from the breakfast but it wasnt that great to me. There were stains in the couches we had in the room. Don't expect greatness. The pictures posted are accurate IN SOME WAYS.
Front desk person not friendly. Terrible parking. I had to ask how to get to my room. Lots of kids.
The bed was excellent
The room was large and comfortable. The breakfast was just ok- not enough healthy choices. The staff was friendly. The desk clerk was helpful when the hotel printer wasn't working.
Though the room was clean, the public areas could have been cleaner. The printer connection for the hotel computers was not working. The hotel is right next to the freeway; there is some noise.
it was good every thing was good It's close to the beach towns only a couple of min to the beach. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Just a little old feeling, but not bad
Breakfast.... Abundant choices...
We both really liked that the rooms were silent. We could not hear anything until our last night...and it was a constant slamming of the door. The breakfast was wonderful. The staff was very polite and friendly. We have decided to make this a yearly trip.
The slamming door from next door. It was jarring.
Comfortable, clean, good-sized room. Firm, comfortable bed.
No bath towels, only hand towels and wash cloths.
