I am not going to sugar coat this. This place is a total dive and its one good quality of being on the beach is so over rated. If you have the nerve to charge top rates for a hotel then you should run it like one. the check in staff was very unprofessional. they made it a point to...

The hotel was in a great location. It was right on the boardwalk and beach. However the photos online were very misleading. The actual hotel was ok, and the pool area was nice. The employees at the front desk did not want to be bothered by having to check you in or answer any questions. The rooms were horrible. They...

Yes the hotel is old. Yes the rooms could use some updating. The service is friendly. The view and location is the best on the boardwalk. The pool and hot tub is clean. Yes there is sand. You're at the beach- there's gonna b sand every where- including the bath tub. But the water pressure in shower is the best...

Yes, the rooms are that small. The whole place had a musty smell. Could smell pot in the hallway. The place is old, but updated. Bed was ok, but this isn't the high rent district. I didn't feel real safe, but had no issues at all. There is a heavy police presence in OC and they react very fast to...

The location is excellent. The food at the outside bar is good. The service is good. Room was clean. Staff was friendly. We would stay again but would hope to get a better rate. Staying right on the boardwalk at 2nd avenue was really cool. The location is awesome. Lots of good food and entertainment close by. Ask the bartenders...

First.... positive review.... great location, very nice pool and bar/restaurant and their staff. But...negative.... rooms and hallways need updates.... now.

I went with my three teen sons, my husband couldn't go on this trip. It was a 2 night stay mid week the first week of Aug 2012. We brought an air mattress for one son because of course they didn't want to sleep with their Mom! Point is, there was NO ROOM for an air mattress! So one of...

I just returned from a trip to Plim Plaza this past weekend. I was leery before I went after reading all the bad reviews, but it wasn't a bad place.

Rooms were small and dated as I expected, but clean. Lots of water pressure in the shower. Location is hard to beat. On the boardwalk and only a 5 minute walk to the pier. Parking is limited at the hotel but the overflow is only 1.5 small blocks away. The pool area and bar were wonderful. Great bar food, good...
