Outside appearance very appealing. Rooms were of standard motel appearance. Our room had a large glassdoor without a balcony or ledge which faced a very unsightly residence that direct view into our room.

The room was clean and spacious. But highly recommend the update the pillows. They were very flat and very uncomfortable.

The room was clean but the air conditioner was a portable unit that was stuck in the closet, which was very difficult to get to. We had a room with a king bed and a twin bed. It was awkward to have the twin against the wall where you couldn’t view the television. The staff was friendly and the location was good. I would stay again but would request a double room instead of the king and twin.

CK BILL

Pros: I could sort of see the ocean.
Cons: Their billing. This is crazy!
Overbilled me by $30! Called within 2 days. Supposedly issued a credit. Never did. Then issued credit and removed credit. Then called again. Did the same thing. Disputed with credit card company. They issued credit, but then hotel charged me $27. Finally issued a partial credit. Had to get the credit card company to deal with them. DO NOT stay here!!.
