We visit OC quite a bit, especially in the “off” season and I was looking for a change from the usual hotels we visit. We had never stayed at this hotel and so I researched it here.
I read the bad reviews but noted there were responses to each of the bad reviews making the point that there was new management by Carousel. Thinking I knew their reputation I ignored the bad reviews and booked the hotel. I wished I hadn’t.
The staff was nice and the hotel itself appears very nice and presents as very clean. The problem were the beds. They were the worst. The queen mattresses in our room were very uncomfortable and my own guess is that they have not been upgraded/changed in a very, very, very long time. They are completely worn and extremely uncomfortable.
It was windy the first night we were there and the slider to the balcony made it sound like a train was coming through the room. We assumed that it was only because of the very windy conditions that evening. I was wrong, the next evening was nice but the sound of the wind in the slider was the same. I know it was the slider because when I opened it slightly, maybe 1-2 inches, the noise stopped.
I guess it will just take a while until the Carousel Group gets this hotel updated, but for me, I’ll pass on this hotel the next time.
