Have stayed here on 2 occasions and whilst it is not brand new pristine stuff it is in our experience clean and comfortable. The breakfasts which are included are reasonably decent and the gent in charge keeps everything under control, replenishing and freshening as required. The rooms are decent if a little dated, as are the balconies but everything is...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 21 February 2017

Stayed here with IHG points but going rate was about $160 a night which I would consider a little high, but this is a more expensive part of the country. I think 3 things are critical to hotel stays - Location, Sleep, and Shower. LOCATION: 5/5 Close to the highway, right next to some nice dining options, and a 5-minute...

We stayed here for five days. Our arrival was a warm welcome, easy to find location, and great room! Service from all the staff the whole time was great-- housekeeping was excellent, the pool maintenance was great, the front desk team was awesome. It was a five minute or less walk to the beach, and the hotel gave us towels...

We brought a classic car to the Good-Guys Show at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. This was close and much cheaper than, the Hilton, host hotel, next to the fairgrounds. They have underground parking so, no trailers but, Good-Guys had trailer parking at the horse park about 2 miles away. The parking at the hotel was $3. a night for each...

We have stayed at this location before and it is a good value for the area, however the facility needs some cleaning up especially the carpets. Since our last visit they have started charging $3 a night for parking, another profit center but they are not putting any money into the building. The breakfast is very good and so is...

This hotel was close to our meeting place in Solana, the area is pricey for hotels in general, and this hotel was reasonable and comfortable. They have a breakfast that is included. It does need some updating, however for the price and the service level for the staff, it was a good value.
