A Dump

Posted Dec 27, 2016
Pros: The price, but others in the area which I tried later were much nicer for the same or lower price.
Cons: Expedia should not represent this motel. It's beneath its standards.
Location: Nice town, just don't stay at this motel.
1. Neighborhood was too sketchy to walk around, so I felt I had to stay inside the dumpy room. 2. Active railroad track across the street; beach blocks away. Hotel's name should have been more accurate. 3. Room was so small that the bureau partially blocked the door to the bathroom. Cramped. 4. Ancient television. 5. Room was really dark, maybe on purpose to hide the damaged lampshades, torn bedding, and overall disrepair and uncleanliness of the place. One lamp actually fell off the wall when I touched it to turn it on. 6. Carpet was nasty. Wear shoes. 7. Had I not been so tired and it so late at night, I would have moved to a different motel. Had I not needed an electric outlet, I would have slept in the car. Miserable experience!

noisy, old hotel

Posted Dec 5, 2016
Cons: needs to be torn down
Don't stay here unless you are desperate. Don't go to the greasy spoon next door either

Pretty basic room, but it's worth it for the location. I was able to walk to grab food and coffee (and with lots of different options). Great staff and very clean. This is a great hotel for anyone staying one night, or who knows they won't be spending a whole lot of time in their room.

It's not the Ritz...

Posted Sep 24, 2016
Went to Kaaboo and needed a room for a nite. There's a taco shop down the street and a restaurant bar next door. Had no problem with an early check in. They let me leave my car until we came back from the concert. I would stay there again.

They say they are going to be upgrading

Posted Sep 5, 2016
Pros: The bed was comfortable, it was reasonably clean except the stains on carpet, and it was quiet.
Cons: There should be an extra blanket in the rooms.
Location: Not too far from San Diego.
Big black stains on the carpet, extremely challenging small parking slots..(many dented posts), uncomfortable pillows, and scratched furniture, but the bed was comfortable, it was quiet, and they had donuts in the morning. No view of anything but the rooftop and some trashed furniture down below.

Pros: Good location for what we needed.
Cons: New furniture, new sheets. Repair sink. Manager available to address issues.
Location: Check out FABULOUS new yoga studio next door to Whole Foods -- Evolve Yoga! AWESOME!!
Old damaged furniture. Sink faucet sprayed water everywhere. Worn sheets, lumpy pillows, old duvet. Musty odor. Room not cleaned one of four days stay. Manager unavailable to talk to about issues. Difficult as in DIFFICULT parking -- barely enough room between posts to maneuver.

Very Mediterranean in flavor

Posted Aug 23, 2016
Pros: Mediterranean architecture and staff.
Cons: Needs remodeling. Looking used. Parking is horrible! Could be cheaper rates.
Location: Close to beaches but right on Pacific Coast Highway.
Has everything one needs for a SoCal beach experience. Charming layout of building.

Throw pillows for sleeping

Posted Aug 22, 2016
The rooms carpet was nasty I didn't even want my kids to go barefoot. The pillows where throw pillows size and not comfortable. The beds were suppose to be queen, but are more like full size. The room prior to our stay was blazing hot not even cooled down with the drapes open letting all the heat in. A couple of things that did stand out was the staff is excellent and parking was spacious and covered. Of your looking at going to the beach also not bad beachside it's literally within walking distance.

Check in was fast, staff was friendly and helpful, it was walking distance to the beach, however our air conditioning sounded like a diesel truck and the parking could be improved. I would recommend this hotel to a friend and I would stay there again.
