We have been staying at this motel for the past 15yrs. because you can bring a dog. We stayed in September on 2016-this is usually when we stay. There was some type of mold or dirt on the ceiling over the beds, on the extra rack to put clothes on. The vent in the bathroom was filthy, trash under the...

I have been bringing my family here for years and they treat us like family. My dog Elmer loves it here and does not like to stay anywhere else! The rates are great, the rooms clean and really close to the beach with no streets to cross. We recently stayed for 10 days (which we try to do at least...

The room was nice and seems they do a lot of renovation in the room. It just the outside look old but the room very decent and I like it. I will come back here whenever I can. It just that parking spot not very big and it's walking distance to the ocean.

I was really surprised how clean and neat the room was for being so dog-friendly . We went off season and thought we got a good value for the our money. We really appreciated that we could bring our 2 dogs and not be overcharged for them. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The beach was just a few steps...

This was our first visit to this motel. Really wanted to stay at Castle in the Sand but their room descriptions are very confusing and we didn't want to be in an annex somewhere. Our room on the 3rd floor (#311) was fresh and clean upon our arrival. We can't say enough about our housekeeper, Brenda, who worked extremely hard...

My family has been visiting here annually for 10+ years. It was one of the first dog-friendly hotels in OC, and it is still very dog friendly. The hotel has always been a bit dated. The rooms are not the best maintained. (But, there have been upgrades recently.) Neither is the hotel all that quiet. You get sounds from other...

The hotel is in a convenient location and it's pet friendly, which is nice because there are very few pet friendly hotels in OC. With that being said, the rooms and building are a bit dated. I could l live with that but our room was not clean. There was dust and hair caked onto the baseboards in the room....

Not a bad place to stay! I've been coming here for years and each time they meet my expectations. The rooms are a decent size, there's plenty of drawer space for clothing, and the shower is a good size along with the bathrooms. The pool area is a bit small, however is still kept clean and is nice. I like...

Our family has been coming to this motel since 2006 because we usually bring our dog. Up until this year every stay has been uneventful. This past week there was some sort of water leak from room above. Came back from dinner to find food items wet, bathroom and kitchenette floor wet, ceiling dripping on carpeting. The night clerk/manager came...
