HC was a great choice for a couples get-a-way! Great location & parking. Very clean, upgraded room next to the pool which was also very well maintained. Our hosts and staff were friendly, warm and attentive. Looking forward to a return stay!

Hotel California is fantastic. The staff are so kind and generous. Very clean hotel. Loved the patio, pool space and our private patio. Having a shared kitchen was great, well stocked with everything you would need except your favorite foods. We drive to the shopping district, free parking garage in that area. The Reef is a great little bar across the street from the hotel.

The staff was very accommodating, arranged in-room massages no muss no fuss - small courtyard pool area ha potential to be rowdy at night if other guests are partying but hotel seems to attract a calm and quiet crowd. Highly recommend!
