Great location! Walk to the beach and a short drive to coffee, groceries etc. The room was clean, larger than I thought it would be. The staff was friendly. We appreciate the “to go” breakfast. We love the free parking. We will be back!

I frequent this location once a month and sometimes twice for writing essays. The staff is amazing and the surrounding is quiet so I’m able to concentrate on my thoughts better. I’m a huge fan of this place.

The room is not very clean. I saw something on the towel and not entirely sure what it was. Checked in pretty tired after a long day driving so I just ignored it. However, my room is facing toward the freeway so can’t sleep well the whole night because of the noise!
