good for one night

Room and hotel overall definitely needs to be updated. Only spent a night here. Bed was fairly comfy, bathroom was disgusting. I took two different bagels out of the glass container at the continental breakfast and they both had mold on them. At around 9am, a whole team of tree trimmers came out and start making a giant mess of the entire property, not to mention the noise. We were on our way out so it wasn't a big deal, but I am sure the people being kicked out of the pool area and others staying longer were upset.

You are paying for location only

Pros: It's not right in the middle of town so it's bit calmer feeling and the trolley stop is right out front. Beach access through the Montage is great.
Cons: New mattresses and pillows!!! Renovated rooms would be great, better shower, new bedding, but at the very least, comfortable sleeping is a MUST.
Location: Access beautiful beach across the street, take the trolley into town for shopping, dining, main beach. Convenient CVS and shops are right next door.
The primary reason to stay at this hotel is location. Also, I want to note that the staff was super nice and accommodating, they are another reason to stay here. The actual facilities are sub-par for what you are paying. This exact hotel anywhere else would only warrant $50 a night, but here they are charging $300 a night during peak season. The furnishings are very old and the bedding, curtains and carpeting are dark and drab. I could get over that but the bed was the worst bed I have ever encountered, the springs popped and creaked when you sat down on it. The mattresses must be 20+ years old?? I've never heard a bed do that since maybe the bunk beds at camp when I was a teenager! Terribly uncomfortable and the pillows were awful and lumpy. The shower was incredibly tiny and the shower head very low. I am tall (5'10") so I'm used to this, but the stall was so small that I didn't eve have room to bend down to get my hair under the spout. To be brutally honest, a larger, slightly overweight person probably could not even fit in this stall, thats how small it was. But the worst was the water pressure (practically nonexistent) and the temperature control (very difficult to get the right balance. Oh, and the pool was very dirty. Again, the location across from the Montage is really convenient and the trolly stop is right out front, they have parking and the staff was very nice and helpful. I did like that they had a fridge and two sinks. Its just way overpriced.

Close to beach

Pros: The staff and location.
Cons: The rooms need to be painted with a mold resistant paint and perhaps updated.
Location: The Location is GREAT!!! South Laguna so it is away from the congested Downtown area, and there was a lovely view of the water just across the street.
The staff was GREAT, friendly, helpful and courteous. This is an older motel and being near the ocean there was some mold and mildew that no amount of cleaning would fix. We always had a parking space near to our unit.

Small Comfortable Room Close to the Beach

Pros: The location is a huge bonus and there was fresh coffee and bagels in the morning.
Cons: The carpets turned our baby's socks black instantly and the continental breakfast could be better.
Location: Great location across the street from the beach. There's a CVS and a few restaurants within walking distance including a great Mexican restaurant.
We stayed 2 nights to give our small children a beach vacation and found the place to be a good deal price-wise for the location. It's a short, scenic walk to the beach. We had lunch at a park overlooking the ocean on our last day and saw a pod of dolphins. The grounds were very nice with all the tropical plants and the pool was heated, though our oldest says she wishes it was better heated, a nice place to hang out and relax outdoors. The room was cozy and clean but the kids wished they had a full tub instead of a stand only shower. There's nothing fancy about this place but we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay. We will be back again.

Staff was so nice! Room decor was mixed. Looked like new paint drapes and bathroom fixtures but shower ceiling had mold and leak damage and furniture was right of the 80's and in need of repair. TV worked fine but could use and upgrade. Outside building was cracked and peeling from age. Room had a slight smell of wet dog. Location was great right near the beach and Montage Resort right across the street for cocktails and piano bar entertainment.
