The staff is helpful and pleasant. Clerk offered no-cost upgrade to suite (one bedroom with sitting room) for free. The location is good for us to be close to family. Having to drive in the Bay Area is a hassle with traffic galore. But Coral Reef is badly in need of updating. noisy Toilet ran constantly; had to close doors...

The place is clean but desperately in need of all new furnishings. It appears to be the original furnishings from 60 plus years ago. The porcelain on the tub is literally worn thru to the cast iron. Inferior bedding left me feeling like I was run over by a truck! I think that if the accommodations are reminiscent of a...

The staff is VERY friendly and aim to be helpful. The morning breakfast is adequate and enjoyable. A USA Today paper is available. The rooms are clean and spacious but the decor is...

Room was clean, but stairway was dirty. small tv and remote didn't work. Room was very large with a small kitchen and a balcony that overlooked a very nice pool. Room and bathroom need updating. We checked in at 9 pm and had to park quite a distance from our room.

And staff was accommodating. Only a short cab ride from the airport. Just what we needed after a hectic day and a night flight to California. Sitting outside by the pool, watching the ducks and drinking tea restored me.

Basic basic basic almost uninhabitable. Noisy neighbors across the street at the bowling alley. This room was worth at most 40$ and the breakfast was good for diabetes. On our checkout day there was no employees to be found in the lobby and breakfast wasn't being served which was odd but to be expected of this dingy motel. Do your...

Even though we had reserved and paid for our room 2 months in advance, they called two days before our trip to cancel. They said they had plumbing problems and had to move everyone on the first floor. Their only solution was to move us to their sister hotel in Oakland!! They did promise us a refund (which we haven't...

Clean and generally comfortable, but could use some maintenance. It was nice to be able to control the heat. Friendly and accommodating service at the desk the day we left. Wonderful location near the beach and shopping center.

This hotel needs to be updated. Its a nice size suite but very old kitchen, not equipped with glasses, or other items and just had plastics . I heard you need to get kitchen wares from the main desk . Not sure why. A fairly large living room has old couch and chair with an out dated tv. Separate bedroom...
