The Seabonay's location is perfect for those who like it close to beach to avoid the walk. The workers are very nice people. Our AC wasn't working property when we had arrived and within minutes they had replaced it with a new one! The pool was nice as well. What really stood out the most was there cleaning ladies.... They... More

Stayed at the hotel at the begining of June and had a good experience. The room was a pool view and wish would have opted for the ocean view but for the price compared to similar other properties the price compared with room quality was great. The positives: room had a mini fridge, staff very polite and quick service (was... More

We have stayed at the Seabonay twice so far and have been satisfied with our stay both times. The front desk staff are very friendly and pretty knowledgeable about the area and good places to eat. When we go on vacation, we aren't looking for an overly fancy place to stay, just a clean place to chill at the end... More

My birthday is the same weekend as Springfest and of course most hotels were sold out. We booked Seabonay through travelocity. Once we entered the room we didn't have a key card we had actual keys which I think is outdated. Once in room the room smelled of mold and mildew! All of the furniture was old and outdated. The...

We have been staying at this hotel for a few years now. We never need anything fancy; just a clean place to shower and sleep since we're always on the go while in OC.

Our experience with this hotel was horrible. Most of the staff was arrogant. The price was no cheaper than most of the other hotels for the end of August. The room was dirty and the bathroom was covered with mildew. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The hotel did refund our money and it is in a nice location.

By far, the worst accommodations, even at this price, I've ever had. Much of bathroom was broken, moldy, and/or dirty. I could scrape soap residue off shower wall with fingernail. Wallpaper was patched numerous times. Clothes rack fell off its makeshift holders and cracked wife on the head. Thankful that kids are unharmed. I would not pay $39/night for this... More

We stayed for three nights. Great Location...very close to the boardwalk and restaurants. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. There was a small refrigerator in the room. The oceanfront view was great. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
