      While the rooms are spacious, they were bare. I had to go to the front desk to ask for a hairdryer.

      It was a textbook definition of a motel; very utilitarian; Needs to ensure the room has no flies buzzing in it before a guest arrives.

    • 4.0.Fair

      We stayed in room #37. Pull out bed was a joke. The carpet and floor was gross enough to turn your feet black. The bathroom sink was clogged and disgusting. The "breakfast" was either homemade sandwiches that were soggy and sad and not to mention possibly not even food safe compliant, or the small packaged jimmy dean plant based croissants, child size juices boxes, small boxes of cereal, yogurt and cups of milk. Pool is kinda small and not well kept. Dont get me wrong.. I knew it was a motel... Just didnt expect this bad.

      Close to the beach. Nice pool. We were right under the steps to the 2nd floor. It was Too noisy. The carpet needs to be replaced in room #20 and the extractor fan in the bathroom did not work. The room smelled clean and the bathroom was clean and in good condition. Beds were comfortable. Good place for the price. Just make sure to bring your basics.

      Horrendous

      I wish I would have taken pictures. I just did not feel comfortable at all. We checked in around 7pm and left the hotel around 8am the next morning. Came in around 430 that evening packed and left. We could not stay there any longer. My children even felt uncomfortable and said it was just creepy. You can clearly tell the door was kicked in at some point do to being able to see outside through the panel at the bottom of the door. The top glass on the door had no covering what so ever so anyone could just look right into your room. The kitchen was horrendous. The shelf to the stove did not close all the way and it was slanted clearly because it was broken. The living/ bedroom area. The blinds were broken and had drink food or something splattered all over them. The TV turned on but you could not even see the picture due to the amount of static. The couch had some brown or red stain god only knows from what all over the cushions. They did not provide sheets, pillows or blankets for the pull out bed. The bathroom floor was disgusting and the wall paper was peeling off. I understand that no place will be perfect nor do I expect it to be. However if I am spending $800 dollars or 2 nights I would have expected alot more than what was provided. By looking at the pictures I thought this was going to be a really nice room. But I was far from correct. I do not recommend this place at all. It does not look anything like the pictures.

      Great place! Keep in mind OC is very understaffed especially in hotels. There was only one employee I interacted with during the stay but he was awesome. Checked in quickly, gave us helpful information about the property and came by to offer us fresh towels and TP even though there’s no housekeeping service.
