The hotel is clean and comfortable. Anderson was the staff member we interacted with both days we were there, and he was extremely helpful. The location is great: a block from the beach (and the hotel provides towels and chairs); a block and a half from the free trolley stop;and a couple blocks from excellent restaurants. We were especially happy with Anderson's suggestion, Urth Caffe. It's a perfect place to stay for Pageant of the Masters. We took the free trolley there and back.

poor condition

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Better service and better accommodation
This establishment needs to improve their facility the staff is very confused and doesn't fulfill their commitment to the reservation. The lower rate rooms are a box on PCH with so much noise that they supply earplugs. The next night moved to a different room where the toilet leaked all over the floor and the office just said, oh you have the leaky room. The staff is unorganized and not accommodating to the guest. The room was booked at a certain rate and then charged a different rate. Will never stay here again or recommend.

Will come back..

The hotel is one block away from the beach, the staff is very friendly, I got the queen bed with the kitchenette, it had an extra bed for my two little daughters. The kitchenette has a refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker and microwave. They provide plates/bowls/cups/forks but they do not have a stove to cook. Great experience, they also provide free parking and towels, restaurants and grocery store are nearby.
