            Location,location, location! Oceanview room was fantastic. Steps away from beach. Anything I needed was within walking distance. Didnt need car at all during my 2 night stay. Even though the hotel seemed to be at high occupancy I did not experience overcrowding. The housekeeper charged with our floor was very friendly.

            The coffee and the 15.00 a day fee for parking

          • Couple
            5.4

            The location to the beach was the only good part along with the view.

            No air conditioning, small stuffy rooms, small bathroom and shower. Not worth $600 for 2 nights (tax and fees included).

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Location is perfect. On the boardwalk, great food within walking distance and of course the beach!!!!

          • Family with children
            4.2

            The hotel policy states that check-in is after 4pm, which is already much later than most other hotels. The fact that we had to wait for another 30-60 min after 4pm was simply unacceptable. The attitude of one of the staff was particularly unfriendly, which made things worse. All in all, I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

          • Family with children
            9.2

            The amazing view of the ocean. We were so close to the water. It was so convienent to walk right out of our hotel & straight to the beach. It was also a very clean hotel.

          • Older travelers
            6.0

            The drapes in the room were about to fall off...Was promised a ocean view and saw a tiny bit of ocean over the air conditioning system of the building in front of our room..The pillows were the most uncofortable pillows I ever have slept on. There were no comforters on the bed. I complained about the views and after waiting an hour they finally changed to a different room. Would not stay there again..

          • Family with children
            6.2

            That it was close to restaurants.

            I think the price of the room was too high even though the hotel is on the beach. The hotel was adequate but for that price I expected a little more luxury. Also, they didn't serve a continental breakfast and I had to pay for parking.

          • Family with children
            5.0

            Being right on the beach was the best part of the hotel.

            The room was small and extremely basic. No amenities for the cost of the hotel there should have been something extra. no small tables, no chairs, extremely basic and bare.

          • Family with children
            7.0

            Good location for surfers and Pacific Beach enthusiasts

            They were very friendly polite and inviting! I will definitely stay there again. They found out it was my birthday and had extra rooms so they upgraded me for free! They have a great little coffee maker in their Lobby too.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Great location, comfortable beds, nothing fancy but clean.

            A bit seedy. Next to all the garbage cans, so smelled of garbage, plus early morning garbage pick up woke us. We wished there was a jacuzzi.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            I found the room to be simple, yet comfortable. I loved viewing the ocean and if I chose to leave the door ajar, I could hear the ocean. The balcony overlooked the pool and ocean. I enjoyed the table and 2 chairs on the balcony. The flat screen TV was nice too.

            I could have used a hair dryer in my room. The sliding screen door was broken.

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            The beach is excellent and dining and shopping are close by.
