Location is key for this property, but my room was a bit loud, right off an alley, so lots of commotion, also they didn’t have a mini fridge or microwave which is always nice to have. Overall good experience, and I don’t go to Southern California to stay in my room so...

Anonymous, We're sorry you were dissatisfied with the location of your room. If you would give us the opportunity to accommodate you in the future, we'd find a more suitable location. We do provide full kitchens at a nominal fee which include coffee makers and microwaves. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Bill Nelson

Average hotel. Close to the beach

Pros: That it was 1 block to the beach.
Cons: Lobby clerks could be a little friendlier.
Location: Everything was in walking distance.
There was no hair dryer or refrigerator in the room. Place was a little noisy at night. Lady in office said she would call my cell when the room was ready. Never received a call until I returned home. She left message on my home phone. Would not stay there again.

Dear Anonymous, My apologies for the difficulties you encountered, obviously we should have confirmed your cell number. We do provide hair dryers at the front desk upon request. Not sure if noise was other guests or something else! Again, my apologies!

Holidays

Pros: Big room and kitchen
Cons: I am a very light sleeper so couldn't sleep until the TV next door was shut off around midnight
Location: See above
We usually stay at the hotel across the street but tried this hotel this time. The hotel staff were super friendly and helpful. Rooms not as sound proof as we hoped but addition of kitchen was great. Rooms very clean and lots of room to move around. We love to walk on the beach and it was one block away. Near many shops and restaurants!!!!! Planning on spending our 40th wedding anniversary with out kids there!!!

Close to beach and classy!

The hotel was better than expected! The site and pictures do not do it justice. The front desk man was so friendly and helped us right away. Very close to bars- we walked, but the hotel was nice and quiet. I want to come back for sure!

Close to the beach

Pros: Clean remodel hotel with nice pool.
Cons: Did not see an elevator. The beds boards came out away from the frame and we would hit our chins and toes with them.
Location: Restaurants and bars are also walking distance.
Close the beach walking distance and did not have to cross any streets.

Close to beach

We have a large truck not easy to park in the alley. Pool was nice but our room had a view of the alley and homeless picking through the trash 😞

Very happy guests

Wonderful staff. My husband and I spent 3 nights, with the kitchen option. This hotel is one block from the beach. Staff was helpful and friendly. The grounds, pool, and spa were immaculate. Will definitely go back.

Great Hotel!!

What a great little beach bungalow! It was a great location, comfortable, really clean and no problem parking. It's off season, so I can't say what it would be like in the summer, but I would go here again. The price was awesome, very inexpensive and worth it!

Very Disapointed, Would Not Recomend

We stayed with a group that reserved about 10 rooms. The problems included, lost reservations, AC not working, lost power in one of the rooms, no clean towels until very late in the day, dirty cloudy pool. To get to the beach you have to walk down a long narrow allley that is littered with garbage and has homeless people that take refuge in hidden spaces. Though we were never bothered by the homeless, my sons are adult male athletes. I would not feel comfortable letting younger children be in the area. If you move your car and come back in the evening you can't find a place to park and end up having to look for a parking spot on the street, sometimes blocks away. This is a good example of you get what you pay for. I am very disappointed with the Beach Haven and would not recomend this hotel.
