Many dining options, close to the harbor, easy return to freeway and pacific coast highway

Easy, friendly service at check in and out. Older but clean and comfortable room. Breakfast was warm and delicious with the most affable staff member service! We got there later in evening but there was a nice family vibe with kids enjoying the pool!

Staff were excellent. Room was was digustingly dirty. Carpet was dirty, every surface was grimy and sticky. Only clean thing was the bed.

Pay extra for harbor view but only seen large parking lot with people walk pass the room. Thin room request highest floor but got the room on 1st floor open hallway next to exit door and elevator . Very noisy from room above with loud music jumping running til 2:30 am by 6 am heard the loud talking laughing noises from people walked pass your room. A/c very loud. No privacy cannot open your curtain or door to get outside air. Waste money . No sleep for 2 nights from too much noises from both inside and outside the room. Bathroom also dirty bathtub just so nasty with black scum.. only good thing is location closed to restaurants and whale watching/ fishing.

Rooms were a little grimy, staff was friendly and professional.

Building is old, but it has nice location. Pretty close to the beach, several hikes, and spectacular views.

This is a nice well-kept property. The staff is informative and helpful. It has a nice swimming pool. You walk out the door and up and down the marina by the boats. There is often seals around the boats. That are fun to watch. And you can go deep-sea fishing here as well.

Excellent

Great location. But unfortunately be prepared for barking dogs at all hours in rooms and paper thin walls... I got to listen to the guy next door snore all night. A party spilled out of a first floor room into the courtyard below us. Despite calls to the front desk who contacted security, the loud shouting, drinking, smoking, and screaming went on for several hours until well after midnight. I was told management was not on site (this was a Saturday night) but the reports would be reviewed in the morning. Needless to say, this was a terrible stay for us, but YMMV... your mileage may vary.

Very close to the beach, plenty of nearby restaurants.

Good location. Facilities are a bit dated but there is a pool and hot tub.

I am irritated from our recent stay. The location could not have been any more perfect, but the service was less than mediocre. Twice there were no towels for us when we were using the pool, so we had to drip dry. Then, one morning we did not have any food for breakfast... nothing! We asked the staff what we were supposed to do, and she said she had no clue that we should go ask the manager. The other mornings for breakfast, we were told we needed to warm up our oatmeal in our microwave, but… we didn’t have a microwave. Then the other mornings there weren’t spoons available for the yogurt and oatmeal. What’s the point of having oatmeal and yogurt without a spoon? I paid for a hotel with breakfast, a pool with towels and service when needed. Based on the low reviews, I didn’t expect the service to be outstanding, but I still expected what I paid for... food, towels and utensils for the food. Upon check out, the woman who asked me how my stay was, she was wonderful. However, There is no real customer satisfaction other than apologizing and telling me that is not the service I should have received. She then did inform me that you can use forks for your oatmeal And yogurt. I then emailed the hotel afterwards and no reply.

Nice area, book for ocean view but did not get it. No microwave

Disgusting and filthy. Furniture is falling apart. Walls are peeling paint and dirty. Bathrooms are horribly disgusting

Very kind people. Other guests with dogs was very disturbing ... dog fight outside in middle of night
