When I was planning my first trip to OC, I was quite surprised to see a motel ranked #1 on TripAdvisor for hotels in OC, the #1 being this one. Motels usually translate to cheap accomodations in my mind, and from my experience. And given today's economy, I needed to save my money. So going on TripAdvisor experience, I booked a night here. It was well worth it!
This motel is quite inexpensive (paid $75 for a 2 queen bed room WITH an extra sofa bed). It had a good kitchenette included (pots, pans, stove, microwave, fridge, etc.). Room was decent; comforters were a bit dated, but I wasn't expecting Marriott quality at that price point. It was clean, comfortable, safe. Proximity to the beach was awesome. It literally is a block away from the sand. And u don't cross any major streets. One residential block, and you're there. To top it off, the lady who booked us in gave my 2 kids 2 free beach pails & shovels. Excellent , friendly staff.
I compared the price of the #2 hotel on TA, and that was like $300. The Seahawk's location is also very good for families. Since it is a bit north of the big big hotel properties with thousands of rooms, the area of the beach you are near is not as crowded, I believe, as the parts closer south to the Boardwalk. And driving from SeaHawk to the south area (Boardwalk area) was only a pleasant 10 min. drive down Coastal Highway.
Without a doubt, if we go to OC again, we will book again with this well tended beach motel. I'm used to 4-star hotels, and if I need/want that level, and willing to pay for it, I'm sure I would ... but for a quick trip to the beach wit h the kids, this motel fits the bill to a T!
