Historic Hotel on the Ocean
Posted Feb 8, 2017
We checked in on Super Bowl Sunday, so since the hotel wasn't busy, the nice clerk at the front desk, Dorothy, upgraded us to a beautiful Craftsman 2-room suite (#103) with a fireplace and ocean view! It felt like a little apartment. The room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel itself was across the street from Buenaventura Beach. (If you don't want to walk from the hotel, there is a free little parking lot under the freeway just down the street on Sanjon where you have quicker access to the beach). It's also close to restaurants, downtown, Harbor Village, etc. It's an historic property, built in 1910, so there were a few minor maintenance issues, but over all in great condition - plus they were remodeling some rooms while we were there. Our only complaint would be that it's right on the 101 freeway, so you do hear the constant freeway noise. But I noticed there were earplugs available in the bedroom. We had a wonderful time and would definitely come back!
