My husband and I stayed here for our 27th anniversary weekend. The property upon arrival looks very much like a Best Western Motel. However, the minute you walk in the registration lobby, you are taken by the floor to second floor ceiling windows with a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. The lobby is decorated with lodge-type furnishings,comfortable chairs and couches, flat screen TV, and a desk with a computer with open access to check email and print boarding passes. Free WIFI is available, although we did not bring our computers. The desk staff was friendly and helpful and the cookies upon check it were delicious!
The room we had was a third floor pier view king and it was newly remodeled with granite bath counters and new fixtures and furnishings. The Bath and Body Works toiletries were my favorite! It had a kitchenette with fridge and microwave and small sink. We brought back wine, fruit, and cheese from our day excursion and had our own aperitivo on our balcony. Bellissimo! They are going to be remodelling the ocean view rooms this October. Our room had an old style TV/hutch, but the newly remodelled rooms are supposed to be getting the flat screens.
Continental breakfast is served at the restaurant next door for hotel guests. All carbs, except for hard boiled eggs. The coffee was fabulous(Seattle's Best) or Twinnings Tea and they even provided papercups with lids so you could take it to go. The restaurant is on the cliff with 180 degree views from the windows.
The access to the beach below is accessible only by the neighboring properties, but this was okay with us and it made this property feel exclusive. A short walk through the other hotel properties on the ocean front side led to a staircase to the beach below.
This property is a photographers dream! We watched several brides and grooms taking photos on the beach below, very sweet! Also, professional photographers taking family portraits. The property has two gazebos that provide fabulous views off the cliffs. The wildlife is everywhere. There were tons of pelicans, seagulls, squirrels, rabbits, and other birds I had never seen before. The only drawback to that was the tons of bird doo everywhere. Be careful not to park under a tree!
Although this was a romantic weekend spent going to winery's and dining, this would be a great place to bring the kids. The local area is full of activities for families as well. We will be back!
