We stayed at Elan as part of a week long trip down the California coast prior to dropping off our son for his freshman year in college. We chose Elan based on Trip Advisor recommendations and we were not disappointed.
The location of the hotel is excellent and was a quick drive to some of our sight seeing destinations such as the Santa Monica Pier and Disneyland.
The rooms were pretty spacious. The decor was a bit dated and the carpet somewhat worn, but everything was clean and well taken care of. The water pressure in the shower was fine, something I'm always particular about. The hotel offers free wi-fi and the connection seemed faster than most hotels.
Complimentary breakfast is served in the lobby and was decent, offering cereal, yogurt, pastries, coffee and juice. No hot food like eggs or pancakes.
The hotel service was outstanding. For example, I left my Blackberry charger at the prior hotel. The front desk person asked around among the other service people and found someone with a charger so that he could charge my Blackberry with enough use until I could go out and get a replacement charger. The valet was very good with advice regarding some of the places we were visiting, including unsolicited (and appreciated) advice about wearing some warm clothing in the evening near the beach.
Overall, a very sound and relatively economical choice of hotel. Would definitely come back
