Stayed over the very busy Memorial weekend with my wife and our daughters (5yrs and 2yrs), arriving on Saturday, staying thru Tuesday.
This is NOT a resort. It's a very simple, very clean, and seemingly well-run hotel. Yes, there is a small indoor pool and a well kept patio area, but they're a bit tricky to get to the first time you visit.
The pool/sun deck areas are accessible only through an elevator on the third floor, half the hotel length away from the main elevators.
This hotels apears to give discounts to large groups, as there were lots of teen-agers running about the hotel, that were competing in a softball tournament. There were no problems other than kids being kids.
Be prepared to pay $15 a night for self parking. This is actually a bargain in this area, as we have paid up to $28 a night at other hotels.
Though you really can't get to much by foot in the area, like shopping, dining, etc, there is a grocery store a few blocks away on Main Street.
For a 3.5-star hotel, you can't beat the price. I booked online through a 3rd party website and was able to secure 3 nights at $70 per night which, again, is a bargain. We used this hotel as our base to visit the Balboa Island /peninsula area, which are both about 15 minutes away. There's a nice bar downstairs, just off of the reception lobby.
The hotel does its job in offering a clean, safe place to stay. The staff were always friendly, always smiling, and were quick to assist with anything we needed.
In all, a nice experience at a great price.
