It's dirty

Access to the freeway and the beach.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The property is fairly new and well-maintained. Very clean and very nice. And Benihana‘s is next-door. They also have a nice breakfast considering the Covid problem.

The room was clean and accomodating. Staff friendly. And hotel was near several beaches, the outlet mall and Legoland. A small shopping center is in walking distance.

Super clean and awesome location! This is our second time at the location and even with the COVID stuff going on, the stay was still wonderful.

The dust ruffle in room 150 has a huge rip in it, but everything else was perfect, thank you for a lovely stay

Check in was easy. Room was clean. Great breakfast. Only downside was that there wasn’t much seating for breakfast. Staff was nice.

Nixe location and walkable distance to the beach. Breakfast was ok. The property is not too old. Would stay here again

Friendly staff and good location, close to beach and Legoland. Good breakfast.

Great location from the beach and Supermarket. Staff friendly and room clean.

The location was great. I was just not happy with how the room carpet floor was sticky for some reason and it smelled odd in the room

Hannah was really helpful. My daughter enjoyed the pool.
