Although this hotel is located next to the ocean, the service is average at best and the rooms are tired and in need of update. This is one of the worst Garden Inns I have stayed and do not recommend it. The value for what you get is below par. However, the hotel choices in the immediate area are slim....

The location is walking distance from the beach, there is a highway in between so be careful crossing the street. The beach in that location is just a plain beach, the really nice beach area is further away by a couple of miles. The hotel was nice, the breakfast was made to order and nicely prepared. The rooms were clean,...

the pool is non-chlorine and the temperature perfect. the room was beautifully appointed with an ocean view. crossing the road at a stop light to a beautiful uncluttered pacific with surfers and dolphins topped the cake for us. we chose this hotel partly because of its separation from the southern California congestion.; if your looking for L.A. or San Diego...

The thing with mediocre Hilton hotels in the states is that they all look the same. The same dates feel and layout. They attract a premium price because of the Hilton brand. This hotel was no different. A little pool and a tiny gym, just enough so that they can say they had those facilities. Breakfast is $17 of poor...
