“You'd never expect this!”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

My family and I were traveling to this area in hopes of finding a place to rest after the hubby went charter fishing. The price was what made me want to book. I was expecting a dingy hotel with sticky carpet, I found a nice little gem. The area was pretty lit up, the hotel staff was friendly and the rooms were posh and very updated. My son had even said that this was one of the nicest place we had stayed at. I was very surprise and excited to see how much we would of missed out had I booked somewhere else. The only con is the breakfast. It was okay, not much offerings and the hot food wasn't too great.

Stayed one night for a family vacation to Southern Cal. The hotel is newly renovated and clean. The staff was very courteous and helpful. We saved at least $60 compared to other hotels in and around the area.
We missed the evening reception but the breakfast was more than adequate for our family. They have hot and cold offerings including biscuits & gravy to yogurts and fruit. They keep it well stocked.
I liked the area and felt safe enough to walk to the beach with kids the next morning. Found lots of sand dollars!
The rooms provided all the needed amenities including refrigerator, microwave, and they offer a few select toiletries at the desk in case you forgot one. The beds were fine and I liked that the pillows were marked soft or firm; your choice. The air conditioner was on and ready for our arrival; nice touch.

Room Tip: 3rd floor facing the condos was really quiet.

Clean, friendly, walk to beach, walk to restaurants, breakfast included and a good walking area. Can't ask for more than that! This is our first time in Port Heuneme and it's a great little area to stay in. I would stay here again. When we arrived the room we were scheduled for wasn't ready, so they upgraded our room and asked "I hope that will be OK". Heck Yea!

Clean room, good value, friendly staff.
Nice breakfast opened earlier than posted to accommodate guests and the happy hour was a bonus.
We stayed there to be near the navy base where our brother was staying on base RV park.
We were very pleased. Always a greeting from staff no complaints what so ever. We will return if we stay in the area again.

We've been staying at this property for many years now and never had a bad visit. The hotel was recently purchased by Holiday Inn Express and all of the rooms were completely re-modeled and are beautiful, very clean and comfortable.

The hotel staff, especially Marissa, are very friendly and attentive. They offer a very good free breakfast (Try the pancake machine!) and a complementary happy hour.

As one of the previous reviewers mentioned, the property is located just a short walk to the beach and pier. There are shopping and restaurants near by.

If you need a quick beach getaway, this is the place!

Pulled over here for the night last minute. Made reservation online, all went smoothly as usual. Booked a standard room which turned out to be quite large. Room was clean, shower was great, beds were comfy. Breakfast was typical; cheese 'omelet', sausage rounds, breads, pancakes, selection of cereals and yogurts. We have so far been very content with our Holiday Inn Express stays on this particular road trip.

Room Tip: Guest laundry and exercise room are on the third floor.

Nice little hotel for our roadtrip. Rooms have been recently renovated. Free breakfast was perfect before we set out on the road again. We ordered pizza from across the street, and it was decent. Didn't realize until the next morning that this hotel is like a block from the beach! Next time I would make a point to get here earlier so we could take advantage of the location!
