Positive Reviews

Amazing rooftop area with scenic views

The hotel has a nice rooftop area where guests can enjoy their leisure time. It has all the necessary amenities for a relaxing time -- comfortable chairs, loungers, and some tables. Previous guests even suggested eating dinner here while enjoying a 360-degree view of the area.

Strategic location for a beach getaway!

Guests who were looking for a place which is just a five-minute walk from the Newport Beach were really delighted by this property. It is just a block from the beach, and just a walking distance from a lot of restaurants and other establishments in the area.

Friendly and attentive staff

Previous guests could not fault the hotel personnel. They were very friendly, and guests always felt like their requests and inquiries were very welcomed. Moreover, the staffs were also very helpful when it comes to giving suggestions, which made guests' vacation even more enjoyable.

Negative Reviews

Limited parking spaces

Parking is available for free on-site. However, the parking space was not enough according to guests, especially during the peak season. During those times, some guests even paid extra at other parking spots just to ensure that their car was safe.

Small breakfast area coupled with limited foods

Breakfast time isn't the best time to be at the hotel according to guests. They pointed out that the breakfast area is a bit small. Those who were conscious with what they eat were bothered by the lack of healthy choices served during the morning.

Rooms facing the street can be noisy

Previous guests had some issues with the rooms' soundproofing, particularly of those rooms which are facing the street. Noise can easily enter, preventing the guests to have the worry-free sleep they deserve.
