We booked the hotel because of the Ocean views. Please know that there is a large parking lot that you are looking over to see your ocean views. This hotel is a few blocks from 15th street, which gives the public access to the beach. When we asked if there was a way to get to the beach - we... More

Booked here last minute on my way to visit family. Friendly staff, cafe on site was good and the location was excellent. The interior was beach decor, tasteful and not over the top. While it's true the sea view rooms look out into the parking lot, you can see the ocean (and spectacular sunset) from the 2nd and 3rd floor... More

We are BW Diamond Rewards members, but had never stayed at this hotel. Wonderful room on the 3rd Floor/Ocean side. We enjoyed the sound of the ocean...perfect atmosphere. We will definitely add this hotel to our favorites.

Dear Richard: Thank you for your kind comments, we’re constantly updating to improve your visit. I agree, the best is lying in your bed a night and listening to the ocean waves breaking, puts you right to sleep. Hope to have you return again and again.

This was a random stop. And turned out to be a good one. We had a nice view of the ocean. The room and the hotel had been recently remodeled. The floor plan in the room was very very nicely done , and efficient. We tried to stay longer but like I said it was a random stop and all... More

Wonderful place to stay, small and comfy! Rooms large with a small area with microwave, small refrigerator and the newest Keurig coffee maker! Bathroom very roomy with large showers! Being in a beach community all with sliders for the great sea air! A great place to stay!

This property has been a go to in North County for years. Now that IHG has brought it into the family and knocked off some of the rust from the BW days it's the same perfect location, but with a price. While there is a full service bar and dining option, I am having a tough time with the new... More

This place is just perfect! Relaxing atmosphere, cleanliness second to none, very friendly staff who can't do enough for you what more can I say. Stayed here three times now and will certainly be back. 3rd Floor Ocean View rooms are the best where you can watch amazing sunsets - hotel ideally situated just a short walk from the beach.

Everything here was great. I don't give a lot of 5-star reviews, but this one completely deserves it. The room had a kitchenette, though I didn't use it. I used the hot tub. It was clean and just the right temperature. The pool also looked great, though it was a bit cold for me at this time of year. On... More
