“Great location but poor soundproofing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for a beachfront affordable hotel, this is great! It's right there on the beach with easy access to the Pier.

The rooms are spacious and have fully equipped kitchens. Comfy beds and large flat screen tv's.

However, the walls are paper thin and I was kept awake by my neighbors talking until 2am when I was moved to another room facing the beach which was 100% better! The only thing that kept me awake then was the sound of the waves!

I was a bit disappointed with the bathrooms which looked very dated. Bath tub was small with those old style plastic sliding doors and crappy shower head.

The staff were excellent!

Hi mmerdock1,
Thank you for reviewing Southern California Beach Club. We're so glad your enjoyed your stay with us recently. Unfortunately, we realize there were a few concerns regarding noise at 2:00 am keeping you and your guests awake. We're so glad we could accommodate you with a better room that was much more quiet. We look forward to welcoming you back again for another great stay!

This wonderful resort is located on the beach & walking distance to the cute town & the amazing pier. The condos are kept in nice condition & the staff is overly friendly & always there to help you.
You can't go wrong staying here. We will come back to this resort for sure.

Room Tip: e-mail the resort a month or so before you arrive & request an ocean front room.

We needed to get away and relax and that is just what we did. Great view of the beach and close enough to go for a walk there too. Many good places to eat and close to golf and anything else we wanted to do.

John M,

We are glad you enjoyed the resort and relaxed during your get-a-way! The sound of the surf will certainly melt away the strongest tension one can bring to the beach. So we are waiting for your return to ensure you are relaxed again! Thank you for your response about our resort.

Happy Vacationing!

I am hesitant to leave a review as I don't want anyone to go there. I want the place all to myself whenever I want. Requested an ocean view room and was so happy to get one. I wasn't expecting a suite but that is what we got. Nice! It was huge with a separate bedroom. And the view! Wow! Justin at the front desk went above and beyond the call of duty when I asked him if the room was available for 2 extra nights. Also, when I mentioned I was disappointed we did not arrive in time to see the sunset he showed me some beautiful photos of the sunset he had taken with his phone. The entire stay was just the very best! Would like to come back for my birthday in February. Maybe I'll get lucky and get an ocen view room again...

Love the SCBC ... when we can get an oceanfront room. We have stayed here several times and were fortunate to have oceanfront rooms. The rooms have been updated this past year and are nice. The downside to SCBC is that you can request but it's not a sure thing that you'll get one. This visit we did not get one of those rooms. The woman at reception did her best and we had a slight view of the ocean. However, for us a big part of our experience is sitting on our balcony at lunch, dinner and to watch the sun set. Would be nice to know upfront if we were not going to get an oceanfront room. We would not have made the 5+ hour trip from AZ or even have made a reservation.

DTBauer,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of The Beach Club. We apologize that we were not able to give you a full view of the ocean. You are correct, when you stay at the Beach Club it is all about the ocean! Since we are a timeshare, our Owners actually determine if we have ocean view units. An owner at our timeshare owns a specific week and unit. Therefore, each week, our availability for rooms is determined by which Owners do not show up for their week. That is why it is hard for us to positively determine or guarantee an Oceanview.
We hope you come back and visit us soon, and we will always do our best to ensure you have the view!

We really loved our two bedroom townhouse style unit. We had a great ocean view and the whole complex was very clean and well maintained. The front desk staff were excellent. They even arranged a rental car for me. Thanks very much! They had fresh coffee complimentary in the lobby each morning at 7am and fruit infused water and teas throughout the day. Nice touch. You also should take advantage of the complimentary bike rentals, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas for the beach. The towel service for beach towels was also appreciated. The rooms are clean and seem to have been renovated recently. We loved our stay and would highly recommend this property. The location is excellent right on the beach and near shops/restaurants etc. within walking distance. I would buy a unit for my own family vacations if I could.

Room Tip: The two bedroom units are loft style with the bedrooms and bathroom upstairs and the living, kitchen...
See more room tips
Green Features: We only had cleaning a couple of times during the week so they weren't replacing/washing towels more often than needed.
