The good stuff: Great pool and pool area, nice big suite with kitchen, really close to beach, laundry facilities and really helpful staff.
Bad stuff: Mean owner/manager that bosses the staff around, not free wi-fi, problems with their plumbing (toilet water rose out of the toilet), outrageous 40$ for parking a day, problems with their bookings (experienced three families on separate occasions in a hefty argument with the manager).

Room Tip: 1. floor with direct access to pool area.

We stayed here for three nights. The location is fantastic and only a two minute walk to the main mall. I was disappointed that the wi fi is not included and we were charged nearly $15 per day for wi fi. We were also charged an additional $30 per day to park the car. Both should be included in the room rate which given the rooms are now in need of updating is getting on the high side. The kitchen, bathroom and furnishing are now in need of attention. Ask for a room at the front as the ones at the rear have a lot of noise from trucks delivering to neighbouring properties early in the morning which will wake you up. Despite what I have said I would definitely stay here again. Hopefully they will include wi fi shortly as it really is a rip off these days to be charged for it.

My three stars are for the property itself.....the location is unbeatable, pool area was nice and the staff were great.

The rooms are spacious but need some serious work though. Please change the carpets. Couches don't feel clean either. Because there is no ac and you need open windows to keep comfortable, garbage trucks behind the building woke us all really early, which was not good at all.

All in all, about what I expected.

Easy reach of the airport, we made the Cal Mar our base for the first few days of our California trip. Very well situated for the beach, has its own pool too. Close to restaurants and shops. Safe neighbourhood.
It is was it says on the tin. We were put in a suite initially which we felt had a bit of a stale smell and were easily moved. Front of house staff very helpful with our many questions.
Down sides are expensive parking ($34) and expensive wifi which we decided not to pay for. That said, we'd stay again!

Excellent location. Close to the Pacific (less than 10 minutes walk). Close to shopping, close to Hollywood, close to airport. And spacious appartement with one separate sleeping rooms with two queen size beds and a sofabed in the living room. Possible to cook, there is stove, hotplates etc. Minuses is that WiFi and parking is not included and both are a bit expensive. Doesn't remember prices, but parking was more than 30 USD per night.
