This hotel is beautiful and rooms are large (we stayed in a Jr. Suite) clean and nice. Upscale without being pretentious. Location on the beach is great. It is a bit north of the louder more crowded Pacific Beach area. Rooms are large, beds very comfortable, and views could not be any better. Staff was AMAZING! All were friendly and...

Great service, Location and Views. Spent the week and enjoyed everyday. Beautiful Sunsets. Close to anything you may want to do. Watch the world go by from your balcony which is right above the boardwalk.

This hotel is absolutely beautiful inside and out. From the beautiful decor as you walk in to the decor in the rooms. The rooms are very clean and the staff is professional no matter what you requested of them.

Great staff and rooms are nice. Bit dated but amenities make up for it. Walking distance to many restaurants. Breakfast was great and free drinks a plus. Would come back here again. A little off the beaten path but nice to get away from big city.

We knew from the minute we stepped into the lobby that we had chosen the right hotel. The genuine friendliness of the staff was very much recognized and appreciated (high praise coming from a Midwesterner). The room and view were amazing. Service was priceless.

This is a perfect location. It is right on the boardwalk with the ocean right there. You can watch a sunset every night from your balcony!!!! You will pay for parking -$29 a day and $15 resort fee but this includes bikes. You can walk to so many nearby places. You can hear the waves as you sleep!!! They have...
