3 D Prize? That would be dilapidated, dirty, disgusting. And add in way too expensive for what you get. The only thing going for this place is the location on the beach, but even that is small and only available at low tide. We were greeted by elevators that didn't work, a hot tub out of order (for ages, maybe?),...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 January 2017

This hotel and staff were great. Desk staff were friendly, attentive and recognized our rewards status. I had asked for an ocean front room and we were accommodated with a room with an amazing view. Wish we were staying longer than the 1 night so we could have enjoyed it more. Parking was plentiful, easy access to Highway 1. There...

The views are spectacular but it needs a major facelift. The furnishings are old the service nonexistent ... and the hotel is noisy. But, oh the waves make up for it. Listening to them crash on shore, going outside to watch the view almost makes up for the blah dated room and the eerily smelling hallways.

I wanted so badly to give 5owl rating but can't. The guest room was immaculate. The view was exceptional. The staff was friendly, helpful and attentive. The only problems we're... 1.that it rained and the hallway Windows leaked so badly that the carpet was soaked right up to the guest rooms. 2. The wallpaper in the halls is peeling and...

Honestly don't know where to begin. Not only is the property sorely out of date- but so are the management staff - who are in desperate need of training and an attitude check. There is absolutely NO common sense or desire to provide customer service. Following check in guests are left to fend for themselves. We had brought some food...

Nice weekend. My sister and I have relatives and friends in the area so a weekend on the coast was perfect! The Moonracker restaurant is attached to the hotel and offers tables that are so close to the ocean you feel like the waves will slide up to the windows. Leave your sliding glass door open at night. The sound...

Other than the issues with the cleanliness of our room, we had a pretty good stay at the BW.we have stayed there many times and will again I am sure. This one time out of many stays is most likely an oversight with the room staff and will surely be addressed for the future stays of all guests.

The rooms are large with a big bed and a good size TV and fridge. Coffee or tea can be made in room. Breakfast...

Stayed here for two nights as our last leg of our week trip to California to get some beach time. The location of the hotel is right on rockaway beach with several restaurants walking distance. This was the most luxurious of the three hotels we stayed at during our trip. The rooms were very large and we even had a...
