First, add $18 to the price of this hotel, because they charge that per day for parking, even though we are in Southern California, the land of parking lots. Some hotels have legitimate reasons to charge for parking, but this hotels feels like it is adding fees to pad the bill. Second, these pictures are misleading. This hotel is pretty run down. The room I'm in has a rusty bathtub and a carpet that feels like walking on a dried-out dish sponge. My TV didn't work, and my husband had to fix it. The pool is small and the sheets itch my skin. Everything is kind of dingy. It's not a nice resort like it seems. Third, this is one of the noisiest hotels I've ever stayed at. I can *literally hear the people in the next room turning on the lights in their bathroom.* I'm not a light sleeper, but I woke up multiple times last night because of paper-thin walls. This is the worst Hilton I've ever stayed at. Definitely not up to their usual standards. Regretting choosing it--I hope you don't make the same mistake.

I like that it was near the beach. I did have an issue with check in. We arrived early and were unable to check in. We went around town and returned at check in time and the room was still not ready. They took my phone number and told me they would call me when it was ready. No phone call. Returned to the desk an hour later and was able to check in.

However, it appears we dropped the ball during check-in and for that, we apologize. Rest assured we will discuss your comments to ensure we are providing quick and quality service at all times. Nevertheless, we would love to welcome you back again the next time you are in town. Sincerely, Peter Yerkes General Manager

Phenomenal Location!!!! Beautiful exterior, Lobby and Cafe BUT that is where it stops! The decor in the rooms are extremely outdated and the Mattress had springs poking and a huge dip in center of bed. The bed was so bad that we actually got our air mattress out of the vehicle and slept on floor of Hotel room. Would definitely rebook if they get new beds at least.

The upgrades shown on the website are to the lobby and pool area only. The rooms are exactly how they were 10 years ago when we stayed here. The carpet is disgusting, dirty, worn, and stained. The paint is chipping everywhere, and the linens look like they have never been upgraded. There was also a very musty smell in our room and in every hallway.

The room smelled like a sewer. The property was not all that great. Checked out early because of the smell. Was charged an extra $50. I don't know why.
