Love it and hate it - The location of this hotel is awesome. The beach, shopping, boardwalk, fantastic restaurants...nearly everything you will probably be visiting OC for is within walking distance. The staff is friendly. The room is small, but setup in a manner that makes the most of the space. The pool is clean and nice, but the pool hours are only from 10-6.
The hate it part- when we arrived our room was messy - a water bottle and food crumbs (chunks of food, really) were under a dresser by the front door, and our feet were black from the floor within 20 minutes of walking around. On days one and two we had housekeeping and all was acceptable- except no washcloths were left and not all trash was removed. We left an advance, standard tip on both days. On day three no housekeeping came - trash and dirty towels not removed, etc. At 6pm we had to go to the office on a towel search. The following day we did not leave a tip and housekeeping then left us a note and an envelope! Day five - no housekeeping. The office staff brought clean towels within an hour of going on another clean towel search. This is our last night and its hard to say whether or not we would stay again...if they could have reliably clean rooms/housekeeping, this would be a gem.
