Fabulous 8.6 From 421 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Great hotel with a moderate walk to the boardwalk
Wonderful hotel and pet friendly. Lots of homeless in the nearby park. Staff is friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.
Kenneth, us1 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
Expensive for what it was. Good: Clean, convenient with nice staff. Bad: If window curtains open, no privacy, as it’s a remodeled old holiday inn or something and neighbors have to go past your room to get to elevator or back to their room. Room was clean but had a damp musty odor. 2 nights with an $800 bill not much a value.
Kurt, us2 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Check-in was fantastic. Friendly, fast and helpful. The servers in the restaurant were all very friendly. Despite being busy, they were genuinely friendly and made conversation with us. Room was clean and very comfortable.

Nice boutique hote
Hotel is nicely decorated and boutique. Pool was nice, but service slow, especially considering it was Tuesday and fairly empty.
Roger, usTrip with friends
Exceptional 10.0
The hotel was beautiful and super close to the cafes and shops of Pacific Ave. The staff were nice, attentive, and helpful. I loved the free, fancy filtered water dispensers available near the rooms! The one negative was that the beds were not as comfortable as I’ve come to expect from nice hotels. The mattress was a bit lumpy/springy, and the sheets were covered with pilling and weren’t as smooth as I would have hoped. Overall a wonderful experience, though!
