It’s was beautiful and the staff so friendly. Just make sure to bring cash for tips or you feel awkward. I would skip the breakfast it’s so exspensive and not very good. It was beautiful and we will defenently go again.

Surprised and not a repeat
Not a great experience. Paid inflated memorial weekend rate. Started from here: check in and parking far from your room. Bellhop Drives you in a golf cart to the room. Room pictured that I selected was not what I received. Wanted a relaxing stay. But nothing relaxing at this hotel. Room nice a little worn with ants in bed bathroom and sink area. Walls thin you could hear people talk and flush toilet. Was moved to another room which looked like the room I booked. But not cleaned. Bed sheets soiled. Whisker shavings in sink. Mold on floor of shower. Window locks broken. Sliding door to balcony lock broken. Windows dirty. Screaming kids in next unit. Best part Michael who cleaned the room changed the sheets and removed the whisker debris. I can’t reccomend this hotel. It’s more like. 2.5 star. Would have been better off staying at the best western across the street and still have the same beach access.

weekend getaway
overall a very nice hotel and beach area with friendly staff and great pool and hot tub. although its very clean and comfortable I feel its a little overpriced for Marina California. its not Kauai!! we did not eat at restaurant as the reviews were not acceptable to spend the money they wanted there.

Wedding anniversary and wife’s birthday
It was our wedding anniversary/my wife’s birthday. We love the place-the view was spectacular, very romantic. The place was clean, the staff were awesome. We’re looking forward to come back and enjoy the place again.
