Signal Hill, California
Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here for 2 nights in April 2017. Our room overlooked the pool area. The view of the marina was quite nice. The color-changing flashing lights went all night long, requiring us to close the room-darkening curtains. The room was a good size. There was a coffee-maker & bottles of purified water in the room. Complimentary breakfast was good.

I had a wonderful room in this beautiful hotel with a fantastic view of The Sea of Cortez. Breakfast (included) contained delicious fresh fruits, juices and breads and made to order omelets, which I ate on the peaceful patio overlooking the marina. After breakfast we rested, then went on a fun boat ride exploring The Sea of Cortez - it's...

A complete disappointment. The room itself was very nice and spacious with a great view of the marina and mountains. But, that's the only thing good to say about the hotel. Upon my arrival, I quickly discovered the lobby was under renovation, I went to check out the great view from my balcony and discovered the pool was empty and...

This is a luxury hotel in a fabulous location. The price was great when we stayed (over new year). It has a pool parking, nice grounds and a restaurant on the waterfront (although this was being refurbished when we were there, you could still sit outside and get breakfast in the room next door.

Great location and breakfast buffet, but the bar by the pool is pricey and they have a very limited selection of tequila and beer. I had some questions about the cleaning and sanitation of the rooms, but I think this might be the best hotel in the area, in other words, your only option.
