On a whim, my family decided to do a day trip to OC. It had been a very long time since my wife and I had been to OC and never had my children traveled there. I did an internet search and booked the Americana for two nights since the off season rate seemed reasonable, location (oceanfront-10th street and boardwalk) was close to the action etc..
The day after I booked the Americana, this TripAdvisor hit me with some pretty bad reviews. Images of the aftermath of spring break teens, smoked filled rooms and all gave some concern. Actually, if you read some of the other reviews you'd think the health department...well, let me clear things up for you.
The people at the front desk are very friendly. The lobby, pool room, hallways were not smoked filled. I would recommend a makeover in terms of paint/wallpaper, but all in all our first impression was good.
Our room was on the Penthouse level which included a 2 1/2 person jacuzzi tub. Everything was operational and the room included a kitchenette with a refrigerator and microwave that were invaluable for heating up leftovers etc.
Not the Taj Mahal, but well run and clean.
The best thing about the Americana is the location, close to some good restaurants/shops and the pier.
My family had a nice stay at The Americana. If you are on a budget and location is important to you, I would stay at The Americana.
