"Beautiful, historic hotel with a lot of charm. "
Nice hotel with historic charm. Close to a lot of great amenities. Staff was just ok. Upon check in, front desk was staff was short and abrupt. Room was clean, comfortable and quant. Only complaint on the room was that the room next doors TV could be heard through the wall. Not really anything to be done on that though. Beware of fees upon check out and 'holds' placed on your card for incidentals upon check in. Not thoroughly explained upon check in. Overall a lovely experience with just a few bumps. Would stay here again and recommend to a friend.

"Very good but..."
This isn't my first time staying at a Days Inn so allow me to review this one. One, I wish they had at least a continental breakfast even if it only provided cold food. Two, the room with a kitchenette has plates but no pans with which to cook so if you book one, bring your own pans. Three, the only cover you have from the outside world is a slim white shade that shows everyone everything going on inside your room. It's better when the lights are all off but since we're not nocturnal, lights need to be on and this lets people see inside. As someone who traveled alone, that made me VERY uncomfortable. Four, you had to get a voucher just to park your car in the lot. If you forget to get the voucher from the front desk, you might get ticketed since they have security patrolling the parking lot. Five, the location isn't that great. It's literally surrounded by a billion other hotels so if you want to go shopping, you need to rent a taxi or an Uber just to do so. The only thing nearby is a small minimart and restaurant a couple of blocks down. Those aside, the people at the front desk were very courteous and provided a 20 dollar voucher for your first Uber trip if you never used it before. I think they had an airport shuttle but I never used it so that's also convenient. Also they have a computer and printer in the lobby in case you need to print something. And the WiFi wasn't bad either so that's a plus. And that's my review. I hope it helps future travelers.

"Nice and Fits the Bill"
We needed a play to stay before hitting the beach the next morning. We had been on the rode for 6+ hours driving in from Arizona. This was a clean room with the needed two queen beds. The sinks int he bathroom are WAY too high for many people (or children) to reach and the shower water is VERY difficult to balance (kept being freezing or boiling). Outside of those minor items, it was a nice little room for the evening. If we needed to do something similar I would have no issue visiting the Atwood again.

"Face the Beach - Get a Smile"
My room was in the front (west) part of the hotel. It was amazing! I loved hearing the ocean, and loved the privacy of being on the end, by myself. Quiet balcony - right on the boardwalk. This was a much-needed short stay to just be by the water and in my favorite place on the California coast. Room was clean, nicely appointed - felt just right for the time. AND, I could walk wherever I wanted to go for food, for supplies, for shopping. Go won't be sorry.
