    The first thing I always do when staying in a room is to make sure the beds are clean. Upon inspection the beds were clean and had mattress covers. The beds were fairly comfortable and the sheets were clean. The room had a kitchenette style area with granite countertops, a mini fridge and a microwave, which was nice. We enjoyed the area around the hotel. It's really close to the beach and is surrounded by restaurants and shops. The staff was very friendly.

    The room overall was ran down. It has lovely shutter style blinds, but they were so dirty and banged up that they should probably be replaced. The room didn't have AC, which is typical of a motel that close to the beach, but it was still very warm. They did have a box fan in the room, which did help. The comforters on the bed were not the typical hotel quality, which was a good thing as they were incredibly soft but they were stained and I felt uncomfortable using them. The room had a table and chairs but one of the chairs was absolutely filthy. It was so stained and should just be thrown out. The chairs didn't match and it looked as if they were just putting any furniture they had available in the room. This feeling was reinforced by the fact that the beds were different heights. The lamp was broken. The room overall needs a good paint job, especially the bathroom and the bathroom door. The bathroom was disgusting! The lid had fecal matter on top and the seat was filthy! Thankfully, I travel with Clorox wipes. The tub appeared to be a jacuzzi style bathtub. However there were no controls to turn the tub jets on. While looking for the tub controls, I noticed a panel on the side of the tub was open so I peaked in, thinking the controls for the tub were behind the panel. Wrong! All I found was at least 20 empty shot size bottles of Fireball whiskey! I've never seen anything like it. There was also a used washcloth slung over top of the shower curtain. The area of the hotel is lovely but there were several homeless people in the area. A few of which appeared to be under the influence and were causing somewhat of a scene, which is not the fault of the motel, but something to be aware of if you plan on staying in the area. There wasn't much parking. It never became an issue but I don't believe the motel was full. Overall, I don't believe I will be returning to the motel. There was just too many issues.

    Proximity to the beach, parks, shopping, easy access from freeway,

    The rooms don’t have AC, only a fan. One of the lights didn’t turn on in the room, and the lamp didn’t turn on either.

    Hotel was a very short walk from the beach in a cute neighborhood with restaurants, bars and a coffee shop.

    Outside was a little run down, but rooms have been renovated inside.
