It was very old and ran down. The entire hallway smelled like smoke and marijuana. The room we were put in was awful. There were stains on the wall, the lights did not work, the bathroom was not clean. It was poorly taken care of

Property was great. The late night staff offered for us to move due to noisy neighbors at 130am instead of speaking with them about the problem. Ridiculous .

This hotel has a very nice lobby, but the guestrooms have only been partially updated. Hallways are worn but not dirty. Good amenities, friendly staff.

Pleasantly surprised by this property, honestly was a bit skeptical and set my expectations low. We arrived early before the 3pm check in and the front desk attendant said we could use the pools which was nice and unexpected. The outdoor pool is very crowded but that's expected. Once we checked in to the room I was surprised by how nice it actually was. The bathroom is small but that's pretty common in OC. There are only two working elevators which slowed things down but luckily our room was on the 2nd floor so we used the stairs as much as possible. I do wish that there were more outdoor showers to hose off before coming in to the hotel or the pool areas. The two showers that I found on the property outside are only knee height, wish there was a regular height one, other than the one at the indoor pool. The sand by the hammocks and hanging chairs is full of trash, maybe in the off season this could be addressed. Otherwise, my family and I really enjoyed ourselves.
