We love the location of this hotel and we were treated like old friends by the staff. Great views of the ocean, very clean rooms, excellent WiFi, easy parking. And the entire staff, continually asked if they could help.

No complaints everything was as I expected, encountered no problems with room, front desk or personnel. Breakfast was great. It is always great at Beach View. Have stayed there several times. Will probably stay again this year.

The location is excellent, the price is great, and the people could not be nicer. I am a repeat customer, and plan on returning. Year round, you could not do better. I feel as if I am giving away insider information!

Such a great location, easy to walk to great restaurants, ice cream and the beloved beach! And drive down highway 1 to various locations, easy drive to Legoland too. Great breakfast you can...
