Visited here with my family after the holidays, and we had a great time. We checked in after hours and did not experience any complications. Our room was clean and the beds very comfortable after a long day of site-seeing in LA. Roxanne helped me with the best directions in getting my parents to LAX for a 6am flight. Would...

Walking distance to beach. Office has chairs you can use for the day. Out door hot tub. Comfy beds, clean towels mid week. Accommodating staff. Washer and dryer No TV's in bedrooms except master. There are big closets and storage cupboards, but very tiny, cramped, outdated bathrooms! Half bath on main floor. Shower/tubs with old sliding glass doors. Take out...

We spent a week at the CIS resort. It’s located just about a block from a nice wide beach. Check in was quick and easy. The desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. The CISR does impose a Resort Fee of $15 a day. They also provide two weekly early evening wine and cheese gatherings for their guests. They have...

My family and I have stayed here a couple of weekends so far. Great place to stay in! Great service, friendly staff, great location, various shopping plazas and restaurants close by, not to mention just a few steps to the beach! If you live in a noisy city like I do, the beach resort is such a nice vacation getaway.

This a great resort in a perfect location. Beach is a very short walk. This location works as a great base if you are sightseeing L.A., Hollywood, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Solvang or any of the cute quaint towns in this area. The units are large, updated & most important clean. Staff is very friendly & professional. You won't be disappointed.

The unit DOES NOT HAVE air conditioning; so you open the windows and being a street over from the ocean, leaves everything damp. The smoke detectors work really well though - my husband made toast on the first morning and set it off. He made his toast in the half bath on the main floor not for the rest of...

The area is really dirty, the beach is quiet but there's a reason. It was so windy we couldn't even spend longer than 10 minutes down there. There really was nothing to do if you couldn't go to the beach so we left early even though we had paid for two nights. I will never go back. It was a...
