Pros: I liked that the hotel was so close to the beach. I think the hotel should have more that 2 stars, personally. The breakfast area was nice, our room was nice and clean. The staff even let us check in early because our room was ready, which was a big help.
Cons: The only thing I would suggest is a safer way to access the beach. Dodging cars coming around a turn is kind of scary. And the hill going down to the main road is actually for cars, which is also dangerous. There needs to be a crosswalk somewhere near by.

The hotel offered a patio that is small but so welcoming. Next to the hotel are many options like a four min. walk to the boardwalk, or a trail (butterfly refuge)that leads to a park. A short distance away is Pacific Ave. Cycles. You can rent bikes and ride all over the city. Many restaurants to choose from. This location was perfect!
Pros: This hotel was not what we expected. It was more! Staffs; friendly & helpful. Parking; great, Room; clean, roomy had extras like pillows&stowed offer to supply anything else needed. Spa was private, Breakfast; hot food, great. Location; the BEST part!
Cons: Actually, no. This place was the best this far!

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Spider problem in the room. Rude staff that tried to charge me for EVERYTHING. Room was disgusting and our dated. It was our last option and late at night, regularly I would have asked for my money back and left. Never again.
