Great Location!

Posted Jul 25, 2016
Pros: Quick check in an hour before check in time. Ocean front rooms are literally 15 feet from the beach. Rooms are clean and well kept, friendly staff
Cons: No complaints
Location: Beach front rooms, grocery store and small shops within easy walking distance. Great seafood right next door.
Great seafood! Grocery store and convenience store within easy walking distance. Small shops and restaurants down the beach sidewalk. Fantastic location and convenient covered and garage parking.

Great hotel overall!

Posted Jul 20, 2016
Great hotel on the beach but you can not swim/boogie board in front of hotel In front of hotel is only for surfing. You must go down about two life guard stands to swim. Also, parking spaces in the parking lot (costs $20 per day) are extremely small. Extremely hard to exit vehicle without hitting the car parked next to you.

Great location

Posted Jul 19, 2016
Pros: Location!
Cons: Service, room ambiance (AC needs to be updated), room cleanliness, and breakfast would be nice.
Location: Really good restaurants and bars just steps away. And an extensive beach.
You're basically paying for the location, nothing more, don't expect any kind of luxury or a special guest treatment. Restaurants, bars and clubs are within a 5 min walk. and beach, well, that's just steps from your door.

Sweet hotel right off the boardwalk

Posted Jul 18, 2016
Pros: Right off the boardwalk, and in the middle of the best area in PB
Cons: I feel the hallways were pretty filthy and pool area could use a coat of paint
Location: The ocean, the boardwalk, The Baked Bear, the best Mission & PB has to offer
This is a great hotel right off the boardwalk that could use a few small updates/fixes. The lobby is great, rooms are pretty nice but my only complaint would be I feel the hallways were pretty filthy and pool area could use a coat of paint.

Right on the beach

Posted Jul 15, 2016
The hotel is right on the beach. The rooms are nice. The hotel is a little run down. It gets very noisy at night because there is a reaturant and parking lot right next to it.

We love it here and extended our stay!!! the hotel staff was very accommodating, The rooms have been remodeled and are superclean. There is plenty of parking for registered guests.
