    Almost got there.

    My plans drastically changed so I was unable to stay at the motel. However, Amber called several times to check up on me and to let me know what I needed to do when and if I arrived.

    Good to have a short stay

    The room is clean and comfortable. It is suitable for someone to stay in OC for a short period of time. It is close to OC beach.

    Exactly as expected. Which is good. Overall very clean. The only negatives I can think of would be… no iron. Problematic when vacation clothes are packed. Horrible smell in the fridge. It was empty when we arrived but it smelled like a dead body was in there for the week before. Not the properties fault but… 6am banging every morning is terrible. Believe it’s trash removal services at a neighboring location. (Saturday morning and Sunday morning)

    The staff are super friendly and nice. We arrived in the middle of the night. The staff accommodate us with out a fuss. The room was clean, but I did wipe everything down. I would have done that anywhere I went .The beds were well covered and comfortable with flufy pillows. We had a microwave and a frieg. There is no coffee pot in the room, but no big deal I bough my own. The beach was right behind us which was great. Parking got alittle tricky but was managable. It was affordable to stay in, and air worked great. They also have a pool. I normally would not stay in a motel but for our last minute trip it was perfect. The staff were super nice!!!

    not bad walking distance to beach room smelled fresh and clean, not musty room was reasonably clean, but not spotless older building, but decent fresher paint/carpet/decor didn't use pool, but looked nice reasonable tv channels, nothing fancy no elevators, tiring carrying up/down steps to 3rd level parking can be an issue no chairs to sit on balcony did not care for walking through other people smoking outside. a decent, affordable stay if you are not too choosy

    The staff was very friendly and did their best to take care of all rooms while being so short handed, we alwayssaw someone working. The hotel was very close to the beach, about a minute walk around the corner and they have an outdoor rinse station right there which was super handy. Room was small, the bathroom very small but it worked for what we needed. Bed not comfortable at all, toilet paper was awful and there were no tissues so had to get our own, the couch was stained and bathroom was dirty on arrival. Tried to be understanding with the current situation of hardly anyone wanting to work. Had no idea where the ice machine was but pretty sure it existed since there was an ice bucket in the room. The only thing the staff had time to do was drop off towels, the room never got touched. Had to go buy our own towels for the bathroom because the ones that were provided were small and dirty, they had old stains and hair still stuck on them. The price was great and the location excellent which are the most important things at the beach. We had a great vacation, the little things didn't bother us we just adjusted and rolled with it. Had the staff been miserable or rude it would've made me feel differently but they were hard working and very pleasant. Huge kudos to the staff for everything they do!
