The location of this property is ideal and the staff is friendly. Unfortunately, it is FILTHY. Our room was disgustingly dirty. The carpet constantly felt wet and left our feet black just after 30 minutes in the room. There was black mold in the shower. We were placed in a room designed to accommodate individuals with mobility issues (we did not request this.) The accessible shower flooded the bathroom after every shower, even when trying to be extremely careful. The room smelled of mildew and dirtiness, which hit you like a brick wall when you walked through the door. When we spoke to the kind people at the desk regarding these issues, their solution was to change the air filter and vacuum the carpet. Despite their efforts, this did not help.

Fine! In a word, it was fine. In more than a word it was pretty expensive for fine, rooms are dated and the facility could use a facelift in places but it is really nice to have the pool bar with good food and drinks right at the hotel by the beach, live entertainment at the pool on Friday afternoon was very good (accoustic 70's jams). Room felt very damp which comes with the humidity so maybe everywhere is like that in OC. The town is easy to get around in, we were only here for a few days and spent little time in the room so being fine was enough. I would want more for the price if we were there all week or ended up with a rain day having to stay in. Maybe you have to spend more than $400 night (incl tax, fees, etc)to get a better room in the summer and I am just naive. The restaurant is very good and therefor the carry out options are excellent, many things to do in walking distance. Beach access is great and as mentioned the pool is nice on a roasting July day. Staff was always friendly, plenty of ice, washer and dryer were close and room fridge was plenty big. We had a really nice time, the only complaint was the tiny bathroom and dated small room but we came for the beach and early evening life (no night life time as we had our 11 yr old). We had beachfront but it was pretty far back and on the 3rd floor it doesn't feel quite beachfront, might not be worth paying for that option...

We are delighted you loved so many aspects of our hotel and overall you had a wonderful stay. However, we are sorry you were disappointed with some aspects of our hotel. We are an older property and while we are in the process of renovating and refreshing our hotel, we are somewhat restricted as to what we can do with the size and layout of each room. We appreciate your comments and hope our hospitality and service will bring you back to visit with us again. Sincerely, D.J. Kee, Guest Services Manager
