I didn’t like how closeness of the balconies, not enough privacy. I enjoyed the view, but I would have like to have heard more of the ocean waves versus the noise from the vehicles passing by

Didn’t like train passing by with loud whistle at 11pm at night. No close access to beach which was across busy street. Jacuzzi was in an unattractive area.

Close to the beach, clean, comfortable

I only had a couple of things that could have been an improvement. When we arrived there was a fire alarm going off while we were checking in. Loud & annoying to say the least & that went on for a half hour. Second it was over 100 degrees that day. I tried to lower the temperature but there was a master control set so we could make it cooler than 75. That would have been ok but with all four of us in the room it heated up to 80. They were minor issues but the clean quiet room was great at night

Nice but overpriced beach hotel

Older hotel but has been updated. Jacuzzi is tiny but very clean and has a ocean view. Helpful staff, decent breakfast. Good experience over all just very overpriced.

Beautiful Location with no frills!

My wife and I liked the location near San Clemente, Dana Point, and Laguna. But visitors should be aware that this hotel is on PCH 1, and the Amtrak coaster - which makes it noisy! The room was nice and clean, but it was a very miss-match decor - something from the late 80's. We had a an ocean view room which has higher ceilings than the other rooms, which made for a nice space.

Quaint & Intimate

This was a quaint little hotel with only 29 rooms. We had an ocean view room with a balcony, perfect for chillaxin'. Also enjoyed the hot tub on the second level with a view of the ocean.
