6/10 Good

For a $400 per night room I would have expected at least a mini fridge but no that would have been extra. Surprise “resort fee” of $22 per day. And the on site parking was $65 per day, $20 more expensive than the new hotel around the corner. The bathroom so was small the door almost hit the toilet. And we were told our room had a pull out couch which it did not.

We have stayed at this hotel for over a decade. It definitely needs a freshen up but it’s comfortable for the price and the ability to only stay one night. Plus it has a pool. Staff is really friendly.

Don’t do it
So I get it, the location is ideal so that’s why you pay the 500 a night BUT it is seriously lacking in some basic amenities. First off the rooms have NO fridge, I haven't come across this in decades. Also NO smart tv. Some basic and I mean basic cable channels. Our tub was broken so with 2 toddlers that was a bummer. Also we paid for a partial ocean view room, but had a complete inland view with ripped screens. For some reason our family suffered bad allergies in the room, maybe the feather pillows. Not sure but this is an issue we never had before. You have to pay to park, either 60 for “valet” if they have the room, but we had to pay for meter parking. Gets pricy. Heard a few people irate at the desk that they did not get the room (that they booked) with enough beds or pull outs for their family. Happened multiple times. The pool is GROSS possibly the worst condition I’ve ever seen in a hotel. Chlorine is high yes but it was completely cloudy, and we were constantly being wrapped around the legs and arms with chunks of hair. Yeah, gross. The cafe has good food, good coffee so that was a plus. If your really hard up for a beach hotel and your booking last minute, that should be your only excuse for using this hotel.

Beds were hard and uncomfortable. Expensive and not worth the price. Old hotel but very clean.
