8.8 Great
Pros:Literally 5 feet from the sand. Traveled during the Covid but it was great!
8.8 Great
Pros:Location, location, location! You can’t get any closer to the beach, so many restaurants, shops, bars in walking distance. Super convenient!
Cons:You need to take it for what it is. It’s an older hotel that could really use an upgrade but it was what it was and you couldn’t have gotten anything better for the price. It was all about the location for us - morning coffee on the beach
7.7 Good
Pros:The location is absolutely beautifully amazing. The view is unbelievable. The location is right next to the boardwalk and beach, and is very pet friendly. There are some hours that dogs are not allowed on the boardwalk/beach but there are lots of other close by beaches they are slowed at. Definately recommend this hotel.
Cons:This hotel is definately an older hotel with a great location and we stayed in September I would have thought that the prices of the rooms would have been a little less than they were.
9.7 Excellent
Cons:It can be a it noisy at night which would only be a problem if you're trying to go to bed early. If you're not a night person you should probably stay somewhere else it's a great spot for hopping the bars nearby.
5.4 Passable
Cons:On my way to Sandiego I had to be taken by ambulance from Seatac to not one, but two different hospitals. My family nd I had to stay the night in the hospital in Seattle instead of at the surfer. The next day we had to fight to change our flights with the or lines and supply a dr's note to the airlines so we could have them changes for free. After showing up t the hotel with two hospital bands and a dr's note, the hotel wasn't so forgiving. I still had to pay for the night I missed right before Christmas. If you're looking for a compassionate staff, don't look here
4.0 Mediocre
Pros:I'm a single lady, they put me on the bottom floor, though I requested an upper level. NO AC, and since I was on I couldn't open my sliding door during the night. The sliding door opened out to a inner corridor not an individual patio. Decor was dated and ugly.

6.5 Okay
Pros:The location is great. Depending on your room, you'll probably have a view of the beach, and there are plenty of bars/restaurants within walking distance.
Cons:The room was a sauna. Even on the first floor, the room retained so much heat that it was hotter than outside no matter what time of the day/night. No A/C, but they did provide a floor fan, which I had at full blast whenever I was in the room. The furniture and cosmetic stuff was nice and modern for the most part, but it was a fledgling attempt to conceal the aged condition of the overall building.
6.5 Okay
Pros:The staff at the front desk were very nice and helpful. The location is great. It's close to all the bars and restaurants. It was also supper nice walking out our door and the beach being right there.
Cons:The cleaning staff was very rude and didnt clean well at all.
7.7 Good
Pros:The view was amazing!
6.0 Okay
Pros:Location is awesome. Right on the beach. Pool is good.
Cons:No air conditioning. We had no chair or furniture of the sort in our room. Hotel it's self needs a face lift.
