I could tell that there was an effort made to modernize the decor in the rooms, however, there was paint chipping off of doors and some of the light fixtures and bathroom tiles looked dingy/dirty. Also the lighting in the room was quite bright / fluorescent

This property seems to be a hub for truckers, and field workers. Nothing against both of those industries but I think there was drug activity buzzing around. We left after being there 20 minutes. As we were leaving cops were arriving. Didn’t feel safe at all

The property was just disappointing. The rooms are renovated but not well done. We checked in to a horrible smoke smelling room with a removed smoke detector. The management handed us a can of spray to cover up the smell. Not good.

Room was relatively clean but there were repairs that were needed like the toilet paper holder that fell off the wall. The room could have used a paint touch up and the tub had been resurfaced but it's in need of a replacement.

This motel was in general clean. However, the room I got had a door shred with the next unit. The door is kind of thin and I could hear the conversation and baby's cries throughout the night.

The first room smelled like someone was just smoking there minutes before we walked in. The second room was better but the floors were so dirty, to the point that if you walk barefoot they will stick to it. The room was very noisy, you can hear the car from the freeway all night and people walking by. Overall terrible experience! I wouldn't recommended to anyone.

It's right across the street from the beach. There are eating locations nearby. The walls were thin so i could hear people walking upstairs and my room was next door to the storage so i could hear all of the workers going in and out. Not to mention there were no curtains on my window, there was a cover that appeared to be see through.

The rooms were nice and looked newly renovated. Our bedroom had a few screws on the wall that were sticking out and my husband got cut on one of them. The door to our bedroom had a lot of bird poop on the floor due to some nesting birds. The property was nice, problem is the noise. The walls are really thin and you can hear the people from next door. At 8-9 on our first morning, you can hear a leaf blower from next door. Our second morning, it was some guys at the property that were doing maintenance or construction work or something.

good location, clean and friendly staff. follows all covid

The location was great Motel set up clean but no frills. Great walking area right next to the dunes park.

room and lobby very clean, really nice location and the nice staff was very helpful

I am happy with how close to the beach the hotel is and especially happy how the rooms were very clean.

Clean and spacious. Loved the beds and location. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed in a newly renovated room, and they are really nice and modern! They need to put in new mattresses...but other than that the room was perfect! Do to COVID-19 restrictions, the beach wasn't open, but there is beach access in walking distance. Great place to stay!

Great room and very clean all amenities we needed

The room was remodeled and clean. Very spacious. Comfortable beds. There one young lady in the front was very nice and friendly.

This property has a great location and rooms have a modern update and color pallet. Part of the update was painting the bathroom door leaving it unable to latch shut and difficult to open if you do manage to shut it part way. The walls are very thin allowing every sound to come through from your neighbors which let do a very poor night's sleep followed by a 5 am wake up from a beeping smoke detector. It would have been nice to have in room phones to more easily contact the front desk.

I am very sorry that you smelled smoke - of any kind - at our property. We do our best to ensure that smokers do not smoke in our nonsmoking rooms or common areas, both of which results in a bad musty smell; and when a situation like this occurs, we try to address it immediately, thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting to restore the clean smell of our accommodations. Guest satisfaction is top priority at our hotel; for that reason, we truly appreciate your feedback about the guest experience at the hotel. We do not allow smoking in common areas at all and we will be implementing stricter measures in the future. Thank you.

The rooms were nice and looked newly renovated. Our bedroom had a few screws on the wall that were sticking out and my husband got cut on one of them. The door to our bedroom had a lot of bird poop on the floor due to some nesting birds. The property was nice, problem is the noise.
