Get Away

Pros: location
Cons: TUMs in the mini store :)
Location: Go to the ocean and enjoy!!!
We spent the weekend to visit with family in the area. Nice and Quiet. One night there was a miss hap in the kitchen and the fire alarm went off. The staff was extremely apologetic and even sent a little note under the door apologizing. Loved the flavored water in the lobby area. Very friendly staff. No Tums in the mini store.

A great find...

How great the staff was. From front desk to breakfast/dinner, we were so well taken care of. We didn't know when we were checking out as a family member was being released from Scripps hospital and we all know how hard that is to predict. We needed an extra day and Lyndsay worked it out for us. The food was really good as well. Beds comfortable and rooms clean and large. Highly recommended!

Nice Hotel at a Beautiful Location

This hotel is consistent with others in this chain i.e., a less fancy version of a Hilton but a step above a Residence Inn . It is very clean and confortbale. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I reserved a room with two queen beds and they were overbooked, so they gave us two adjoining rooms at no extra cost. The only drawback was they ran out of parking spots.

The staff at this hotel was wonderful-everyone was very attentive, thoughtful, and always had a smile.

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
This hotel had great food, especially the dinner menu. The wait staff was exceptional. The rooms were very clean down to the small details. The only thing I would suggest adding is a fan in the bathroom.
