2nd floor had a lot of visual repair/maintenance items that should be cleanly stored away out of sight. It looked messy. Staff was hosing down the property a good part of the day leaving all the outside furniture and floors soaked with water puddles that did not drain. A little dangerous for slipping purposes. Breakfast is included but it is a little less than a continental breakfast. There was dry oatmeal in a cup, dry cereal in a cup, lowfat yogurt cups, packaged pastry and fruit. Expecting a little more. Location on the beach is awesome and really beautiful.

They have hidden charges so beware. You’re not told about it but will get charged after your stay. They take your card for “incidentals” but it’s for the additional charges after, read the very FINE print.

The location of the hotel is great. Its very expensive to park valet parking $35 a day. The continental breakfast was very sparse. The rooms are comfortable and clean. I enjoyed my stay there.

The room floors were filthy. The towels supplied daily were dingy and old. Absolutely no guest information in rooms. Very old refrigerator and furnishings in room were old and damaged. Such a great location but a terrible stay.

This hotel gets 5 stars for location and maybe 4 stars for amenities BUT the first two rooms we were given were not cleaned or partially cleaned. The third room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. We are still not sure what the “resort fee” gives you and the parking is expensive for Orange County, and the breakfast is really sugar pastries and coffee, but the location is excellent so we may return

The location was perfect. One block from the beach and centrally located to everything. Room was ok, small, not fancy, but clean. Newly remodled and still working on it.. A little noisy, based on the location of the room.

I think the hotel was in the middle of remodeling. The bathroom was very well done and the paint color was great. The rugs & furniture needs replacing- chips in furniture and rug was frayed and dirty. The location was amazing and the staff was very friendly. Every single person said hello or some sort of greeting and conversation. Our room had a view of the brick wall and the alley way but I knew we weren't getting a "view".

COMFY clean room

Our rcars I’m was excellent! It was a deluxe room with charm and comfort! One of the most comfortable beds with the fluffiest pillows I’ve ever slept in. The shower was wonderful! The room still had old fashioned architecture that had been restored and wood floors. I would stay here again! The jacuzzi facing the ocean on the second story was delightful!
