I have stayed at better Hiltons. The location was great, but the parking structure is very difficult for large vehicles. Love the pool/hot tub/fire pit. Rooms are comfortable and the dining is fine. Wish it had a Starbucks in the hotel, but the restaurant does serve Starbucks coffee. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The warm chocolate...

It's too bad that Housekeeping and Maintenance don't communicate when there are issues with the rooms, i.e. rust around the tub drain, sink drain stop doesn't work, etc. The front staff needs some work in the hospitality area. Seems like they were more concerned about the upgrades/purchase of the hotel soon, and if they were going to be a part...

Let me get right to it; the property is aging, the location is so so (hotel circle is a little confusing), there was a huge stain on the carpet in my room, it smelled a little musty, the lobby furniture really needs to be replaced asap. The service was OK however I noticed when I got home that one of...

The hotel is affordable, near the beach, off the beaten path a bit, so you don't have to worry about getting onto the freeway. Rooms are very clean, staff is friendly, and the environment is wonderful. Definitely staying here again!

We have been coming here for almost 30 years and have seen ups and downs with this hotel. Right now, it is getting old. Rust in the bath tub, a non-functioning sink plug, the handrail into the swimming pool broken away at its base, and a hot tub that was green (too much chlorine or too many algae?) all speak...

Hotel is nice and convenient. The only downsides are the parking, at 18 dollars a night in a garage that is built for bumper cars and there is no on site laundry facilities. Road noise from the 8 freeway, is bearable, but I am a heavy sleeper. Ask for a high floor, or else your view won't be anything to...
