Casablanca Inn on the Beach

Reviewed 24 July 2014

We reserved two family suites we got two closets instead. They told us we should of reserved THE FAMILY SUITES. old worn furniture and dirty. Very rude attendants and when booking make sure you will get what you reserved. And also make sure they honor prices that they give you upon confirmation ! Ok so do not stay there you will regret it, thank gosh we were able to find a nice place around the corner and more modern at half the price!

After 2 weeks of the coast and Southern California theme parks, our mid-trip stay at Casablanca Inn was our favorite hotel by far. We rented a bungalow for my husband, our 2 children and I. The beds were comfortable, the fan was ample to keep the heat out of our room and the view was incredible! Staff was kind and helpful too. Will most likely stay again on our way home because we can't stop talking about how lovely it is there.

Wholeheartedly recommend!

A hostel run on a shoestring . This is the most poorly maintained place I have ever been to . There are barely any staff and they have no power to do do anything . If you want a place with no water coming out of the tap , sockets and light switches that don't work . Dirty and big leaks that are ignored . Then do visit . I am bemused by all the positive reviews this place gets . We were not expecting luxury but just a decent set of basics . I do feel sorry for the staff as I think they have to take a lot of flak and I feel even sorrier for anyone who stays here

We had a wonderful stay at The Casablanca Inn. The front desk was very friendly and the employees were very willing to assist me with any request. Great location with awesome view! I would come back again.

Room Tip: If you have a big family, choose room 31, you will be very pleased.
