Positive Reviews

Well-maintained rooms with modern features

The no nonsense rooms with vibrant decor reportedly weren't the height of luxury but were well-maintained and more than adequately comfortable and clean for a budget getaway. Many guests praised modern features like the carpet-free flooring and flat-screen televisions. Those prioritizing affordability welcomed the competitive room rates for the area and often added that they got fair value for money.

Car-free exploring was possible

Many travellers mentioned that they liked this motel's location as they could leave the car behind and easily reach downtown, the marina and the Amtrak station on foot. Beachgoers loved being within walking distance of Pacific Ocean beaches. The proximity of amenities like petrol stations, shops and places to eat was another bonus. The direct access to Interstate 5 made it straightforward to get to local attractions, shopping malls, golf courses, military sites and theme parks. The ample free parking also won praise.

Upbeat about friendly employees

Reviewers usually had good things to say about the professional, friendly and obliging personnel working on the front desk. Those travelling with their furry friends appreciated the pet-friendly policy.

Negative Reviews

Minor cleanliness and maintenance issues

Stained bedding, dusty surfaces, musty smells and cigarette burns plus bedroom floors and bathrooms that could have been more thoroughly cleaned were among the minor maintenance and cleanliness issues that frustrated guests in certain rooms.

Claims of drawbacks in several rooms

Some critics claimed they weren't supplied with enough towels or found their bathrooms too small. Others reported that they struggled to regulate the room temperature. The lack of little extras like shampoo, hairdryers and coffee-makers in the rooms also disappointed certain reviewers.

Free Wi-Fi disappointed some guests

Although the free Wi-Fi appealed to many reviewers, some critics reported occasional problems with weak signal strength or sluggish speeds.
