Beautiful hotel and surrounding area
An fantastic hotel! Such a great deal, right on the bluffs and we lucked into some beautiful weather. Girls weekend! Staff was great, room very clean, hotel very clean, prices for everything reasonable. There is beach access via a steep stairwell, easy climb both ways, tide pools with crabs, etc. Fun to explore! There is a short walking path, as well. Beachfront restaurant is great, outdoor seating is amazing, with full ocean view. Pool and hot tub great. We had so much fun and really it was a wonderful stay at a lovely hotel

Great 2 night stay!!
Room was good sized, tastefully decorated, very clean. Hotel was convienently located, beach access, although it may be difficult for some people because of stair access. It was fine for us and we enjoyed a long coastal walk with great view of ocean and coastal houses. Will definitely stay here again.

Good6.0
Comfortable but slightly unprofessional
We chose our room and this hotel based on their website’s claim that each room in the classification we chose had a view. We were first put in a room with no view then moved to a “partial” view. ( if you cleaned out of the balcony very far you could see a sliver of the ocean) The transition from one room to another was executed poorly but, I understand that the staff are human and make mistakes... for the price though, I expected more. They also encourage you to valet park your car. It’s included in your stay but they don’t seem to understand that some guests don’t want to just give me their keys to a ballet. When I drove around the parking lot to find a spot to park and couldn’t find when I called the desk and her response was “well I don’t know what to tell you that they also encourage you to valet park your car. It’s included in your stay but they don’t seem to understand that some guests don’t want to just give their keys to a ballet. When I drove around the parking lot to find a spot to park and couldn’t find when I called the desk and her response was “well I don’t know what to tell you that quote then” I was traveling for business and did not want to give my only set of keys to a young man who could accidentally ruin the $5000+ worth of product I had in the back of my car. Still, the rooms are clean but, you get more professional service for only a few dollars more down the road a bit.

Poor2.0
Awful.
Awful. (1) I paid about $430 per night for a room that was awful. Facing the parking lot with a massive palm tree 5 feet in front the window blocking any light. It was basically a cave. I asked for a room reassignment but they could not accommodate. (2) My check in was not enjoyable either. We arrived around 1PM and asked the gent at reception if it was possible to check in earlier than 4PM? He seemed annoyed with that request. Ultimately he wasn't able to accommodate so we checked in at 4PM (3) Noise control. At 11:05 PM a car containing other guests pulled up in front of the hotel right under our room. They were obnoxiously loud, blasting their stereo with base on full boom for about 10 minutes. Why does the hotel allow this behavior? By the time I called to complain the car had moved forward ( I guess they were waiting for valet). Awful experience.
