We would stay here again. Location convenient to our venue and to the freeway. Staff was very helpful and friendly, and room was comfortable. My spouse required disabled accommodations, and bathroom was appropriately set up. Good breakfast included. Not too noisy. My only complaints are that there was only one roll of TP provided, and that there were not enough towels. Also, the TP was of very low quality. However, staff did provide additional supplies of both when requested.

It was a nice property just down the way from the beach . Friends of mine were staying at the San Elijo campgrounds and I didn't want to be out in the January cold nights. This was the perfect place down the road from them and much nicer than I expected. Staff was great....breakfast was awesome. Great experience. We'll be back!
