I absolutely LOVED this place!!! The employees were so nice. The location was perfect - we were right across the road from the beach, there was a market and numerous restaurants within walking distance. The rooms are updated and decorated simply but everything looked so nice. There is currently terra cotta tiles on the floors but they are changing that out to a different flooring 😢. I think it looks wonderful the way it is!!!!

This place is in a great location and Imperial Beach is a great little town. This hotel was okay, very small Queen room, no place to put our things, major thing for us was no air conditioning and though it is on the beach it gets hot and all you have to cool off the rooms are a fan and window but the window can only be open when you are there. The fridge was a great size and they had a microwave. We won’t be staying there again unless it is a different time of year.
