“Trust lost!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Oceanfront view right on the boardwalk. The room had a musty odor that was noticeable throughout the 2nd floor hallway. My wife and I had items missing from our room. We reported the missing items to the manager who seemed indifferent. We were asked to write our name and telephone number on a slip of paper for follow-up after the manager talks to the housekeeper to "get her version". We never heard back from the hotel. Although nothing of great value was taken it was evident that someone went through our belongings. Heed the disclaimers posted in the rooms and on check-in documents to use the room safe to store your valuables, which cost $5 to use at the time of our stay. Also, I left my diabetic testing kit in the room when we checked out. Needless to say I do not expect to see it again.

I was surprised how nice and modern the room was when we checked in. Most of the hotels in OC show their age and the high traffic so my expectations are a little low on what to expect. This property was very clean and the staff was very friendly. You couldn't tell it was a boardwalk beach hotel.

Room Tip: Pay to get the ocean front view. Always worth it.
