Clean and Inexpensive!

Posted Sep 29, 2014
Pros: Clean and Inexpensive!
Cons: Bigger towels and a phone that actually works
Location: Location is good. Best donuts ever just a few steps away and a dive bar across the street,
This is our second time staying at this place, Rooms and extremely clean (im picky) and hotel is very inexpensive. Location is good. Very simple place but comfortable and clean.

Room was hot. Beds too hard.

Hotel staff was ok. Hotel passable. I travel a lot for work and the price I paid here for this room is ok given the hotel. Pay any more would have been unreasonable.

Hotel no bath.

Posted Sep 9, 2014
Noisy because it is near freeway. The elevator smelled of really strong air freshener that was trying hard to cover up an underlying stench. The room smell of air freshener was overpowering but we opened windows and door and it soon weakened. Most disappointing was that there was a note not to use the tub to bath because it leaked , and after a long hot drive, I was looking forward to a soak. The free wifi is a joke. If you were lucky to get connected it woud not last long enough to even check email.

ok hotel

Posted Sep 2, 2014
the front desk staff not pleasant, he was on the phone when i was checking out and did not look interested in helping me because he didn't even hang up, he helped me check out while the phone was still talking to someone, it seemed like he was on the phone with a friend.

One night stay

Posted Aug 31, 2014
I was allowed to check in a couple hours early. They also allowed me to-do so without an incidental hold on my card. The only thing I was unhappy with was that the room was a smoking room. It was not heavy just slightly noticed upon entry. After a time, I did not think of it at all. There was also a corner where the curtains did not draw completely closed but allowed a small gap. I would not reccomend this for a family. For me it was okay. The only other fact was it was too near a major freeway and no views. That is something I should have checked first. I never saw any staff person doing anything while I was there?? It was average!!! Dave Johnson Oceanside, ca

GREAT LOCATION; COULD SEE THE OCEAN FROM OUR ROOM

Posted Aug 26, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing
Location: Donut shop; Pipes for Breakfast and multitude of shops on main highway within walking distance. Beach is less than 5 min away.
We have stayed at this hotel many times before when it was called Budget Lodge. It has only gotten better. We stayed in Room #309 which was on 3rd flr facing ocean; VERY quiet. It's not on the ocean but you could see it from our window off in the distance. It was super clean with fresh towels and 2 beds facing opposite sides that worked good for our 2 granddaughters that we took there with us for surfing lessons. The next morning the girls walked to the donut shop which was 2 blks away and grandpa and I walked to Pipes (across the street) for an amazing breakfast. Unfortunately our grandaughters didn't get those lessons because of high rip-currents, But we will be back the end of the month. We love this place for the price and will continue to come here in the furture God willing. We had beautiful SC weather and a great time. We were VERY pleased and comfortable with our stay.

great place, great location, great price

i have stayed at this property multiple times. it is within walking distance to just about everything you would want. there is a great restaurant practically connected to the property called hapa-j's. be sure to check kayak and booking for rates since this website is horrible about honoring their low-price guarantee.
