I have been going to the Southern Ca. Beach Club for more than 25 years and I would never go anywhere else when it comes to a vacation at the beach! There's the pier, shops, theather, and restraunts walking distants. The view is fabulous! Best of all, the staff will go out of their way to accommodate you any way they can!

Our family just spent a week vacationing at this hotel right next to beach, and we had a great time. The view was spectacular. The hotel had everything we needed to enjoy the beach. There are so many places to eat within a short car drive, it was tough deciding where to go, but Ruby's Diner at the end of the pier was a nice walk for tasty burgers and malts. And there's a Ralph's grocery store not far either, so we could pick up food for less expensive options. The park next door was a good place to go throw a football around with my two boys. It was an hour to Knotts Berry Farm and less than that to the Zoo. My only regret is that we couldn't spend more time there.

Our family vacation to the Southern California Beach Club exceeded our expectations. The location was great. It is located right by the lifeguard tower and sandy beach next to the pier. I mention sandy beach because farther down the road it is gets very rocky. The Southern California Beach Club sits right off the beach with a small access road where many bike, jog, skate etc. We did not take advantage of this but they had and assortment of beach toys that could be checked out instead of having to buy from a store in town.

We stayed in the very spacious two bedroom suite. The two bedrooms were upstairs with a full bathroom and the down stairs had the living room, kitchen, dining and a half bath/powder room.The main floor and bathroom upstairs was tile floor that had a hardwood floor look to it. This look gives the unit a warm cozy feeling. This unit was equivalent to staying in a nice two bedroom apartment. Everything was clean. I have no complaints about cleanliness at the Southern California Beach Club. The grounds were kept clean and the unit was impeccable. Upon glancing at the reviews to the right, I feel I should add that we were not timeshare participants and we received an ocean view.

The entire staff from the front desk, maids, security etc. went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. I was very impressed with all of the employees we met on our stay. I will highly recommend the Southern California Beach Club to family and friends, and we will make a return trip in the near future.

We recently stayed at Southern California Beach Club and enjoyed the location and our suite. We had a recently renovated condo and it was very nice. There was no ocean view because we were told most of those went to the timeshare participants. Nice beach chairs, bicycles and towels for the beach. One of the things that no one tells you is that there is no air conditioning in any of the units but most days you don't need it. Also, the booking company we used also did not explain whether the resort fee was included in the quoted price or not. The parking is convenient and is located under the building. However, the spaces are small and do not accommodate large vehicles very well. The room we stayed in on the 3rd floor did not have great cell reception. I had to stand on the patio to talk.

Room Tip: Ask about the cell phone reception in the room.

LadyLipstick,

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Beach Club! I apologize that the booking company did not relay the information about resort fees or the lack of air conditioning. I have started the process to ensure that all future guests are completely informed before they arrive. We are also reaching out to companies to improve our cell reception.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! We hope to see you soon!

Great location, great hotel. Right on the beach. We stayed in the 1 bedroom condo and we were beyond happy with the space. Lots of room, nice indoor courtyard area with tables and chairs (not all floors have this) Nice kitchen, we cooked both nights. They also have a b.b.q. area but did not use it. The bathroom is separated into 2 areas, shower and toilet in one part and LARGE sink area in the other. Bed was very comfortable. We did not get very good phone reception so had to go outside to make any phone calls. Everything is provided for the beach (chairs, towels, kids toys, umbrellas, bikes) no need to bring all those things. Only down side was the front desk reception felt a little unfriendly but once we started talking it seemed a little better, they went out of the way to give us a good room and they were very accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Stay on the floor with the indoor courtyard (b.b.q. area)

Everything was perfect except for the lady in the front desk when we booked in, I walked in and she was texting someone on the phone and she saw me and kept texting after about two minutes I said "excuse me" and she briefly looked at me and kept texting for about another 15 seconds and then put it down and said "yes" it was awkward but other than that LOVE IT!!! I will definitely be back location is top notch, rooms are great, I highly recommend for everyone that loves the oceonside like me, just hope that that lady is on days off. Lol

We just stayed at the Beach Club after a recommendation from a friend. We live nearby but were celebrating a birthday and wanted to be in town near the beach. Beach club was very affordable, and I got a studio ON the strand. It was awesome ! Clean and well decorated it was much nicer than we expected. I opened my door to the beach, i guess the one downside was I kept tracking in sand ;) We were within walking distance to restaurants and movie theaters, upon yelps recommendation we even went to the nearby harbor and had the best Bloody Mary EVER at "Tonys Sports Bar"

Thank you for your kind review! We have to agree, there is nothing like staying in the studio units...and being 'in the sand!'. Please come back and stay with us again soon!
