It's a very nice hotel, build as a motel (the room aren't on a corridor but directly outside).
Champagne in the room as you arrive (well as a french i can tell this champagne is more a gag than a real French Champagne), nice room decorated with taste, and very clean. Since i came on this hotel after a Motel 6 in Pismo Beach it was like a little paradise.
You will not have a view to the ocean, but u will get a really nice clean pool inside the hotel. try it, it's really a good one.
The breakfast is enough for an european but maybe not enough for a texan (if u know what i mean). I was satisfied enough to wait 1 pm to lunch.
This place isn't so far from the center town but we used the car to get in (only bc it was a nice car).
Go for it blind if u want a cool place to sleep.
