Em route from Anaheim to BC mid-October. Ended up staying here two nights since SB and hotel was so great.
Phone service was great; helpful in helping us find a suite for five. Rate seemed steep, but I'm guessing it was par for the area and we were trying to stay in better places that had pools and room for all of us, so wasn't overly shocked.
In-person service was good and professional. Check-in and out quick and effortless. Friendly enough hotel staff encountered elsewhere.
Suite was on main floor facing pool. Very clean, enough space even with the rollaway/air mattress ($15 extra) tucked in by sliding doors. Bed and pillows comfy. Hotel and room seemed posh and comfy all at once; didn't feel 'out of our league'. Didn't hear any other room noises beside or above.
Free wifi and parking! No free breakfast but 10% discount card at adjoining restaurant and the coffee shop around the corner.
Pool was clean and well-kept.
Adjoining restaurant was lacking in ambience at 8:30 pm but food was okay to good with average service.
In-room bottles of Fiji water at $5 kinda bit, but that's what we got for forgetting to find a grocery store and the tap water tasted yucky to us (chalky/soft? so just not used to it).
A/C/fan was kinda loud.
Close walk to town. Right across from beach and pier.
Would definitely recommend.
