I booked 2 rooms with 2 beds and a roll away cot approximately 4 weeks ago. I was told to call the day before arriving to ensure the cot would be available and in place. I called and was told we don't have cots and haven't had them for sometime. I asked what could be done to accommodate us as...

totally incompetent 'management' -- a young, clearly inexperienced lady calling herself the 'front desk manager' is left to make decisions. awesome. And of course not quite smart enough to actually make a decision -- not a good combination. this place makes running a hotel look like one of the hardest jobs out there.

This place does what it does very well: it is a convenient and efficient rehabilitated motor-inn typical of the past. You can spend a lot more for not too much more than what DPHI offers: lots of convenient parking, easy outside access to comfortable up-dated rooms, a very nice breakfast, a great staff, and easy access to the best beaches...

I booked our 2 night reservation on their website and 5 minutes later received a phone call from them asking me for my credit card #. They said that their website got all of my info EXCEPT the CC# - no explanation. I found that strange. Then when we arrived on Friday night we were told that we would not...

We stayed for 3 nights over the weekend. I wouldn't recommend it to others. The experience started with deceptive pictures from the internet. It's not remote, nor as isolated as they make the it appear. Jack-in-the-Box is behind it, along with busy, nosy PCH. The pool, is tiny, with only 3 chairs provided. The front desk person told us we...

We stayed here just one night and that was enough. The room was clean, but that musty motel smell hit us in the face as soon as we opened the door. Opening the windows and running the air conditioner didn't help. The towels were thin and scratchy also. We chose the hotel because it was located near the party we...

I had to open the door by shoving it with my shoulders. The hot water handle in the shower did not work, cold morning shower. There was a coffee set up in the room but no coffee maker. There was no remote for the TV. The a/c worked great and it was quiet. The room was also quiet. The price...

When my husband and I and our two grown children arrived (albeit just before midnight)with our reservation confirmations in hand, we were told our names weren't in the reservation log. We were given the two remaining rooms. In one, there was a leftover half gallon of milk in the refrigerator and the carpet was filthy (vacuuming alone wouldn't have helped...

I wasn't expecting much due to previous reviews but this place was great! We were also traveling with two other sets of friends and they were extremely happy with their rooms as well. The place is very clean. They put clean sheets over and under the blanket which I really like. Bathroom was spacious, and there was even an extra...
