Our Guests Say it BestGreat Location

I've stayed here many times over the last 20 years, and it is perfect for location (20 mins walk to the beach) and freeways (5 mins drive to the I10 and PCH). Also, the staff are really helpful... The recent revamp of the rooms means they are really superb - spotlessly clean and very well appointed.

[The guest services agents] made sure we had everything we needed from a cool water on a hot day to offering us an umbrella on a rainy day. Parking right outside your room which is great... Lovely modern rooms with an actual shower, not just a bath shower!!!! The toiletries in the room were great, with a minty shampoo! Comfortable beds. All in all best experience, clean tidy, lovely staff!

How sweet to walk in and find friendly staff and apples to boot! What a great group of people work here—welcoming, helpful, knowledgeable, and, in the morning, great brewers of coffee as well. We were grateful for the very relaxing and comfortable room, luxurious-feeling bed and bedding, small fridge and microwave, and quiet feeling of refuge in the courtyard-like arrangement of rooms…

It was so nice, very tastefully decorated with plantation blinds in the windows, wonderfully scented lotions, shampoo etc. It was immaculately clean and Laura at the front desk was so helpful and pleasant. A real find.
