Went here for my daughter's spring break. I jumped at a chance to stay near the beach. The price that they were offering was unbeatable. I paid that price back in the 80's to stay at Dana Inn, San Diego and that wasn't even close to the beach. We had a great time. The beach was just across the street....

They even have boogie...

Stayed in the largest room with kitchen/diner and a fantastic ocean view. Very warm welcome from the owner, who had lots of info about places to go nearby. Good value for money, very short walk from the centre of town, would stay there again.

I set up a large group of my friends in this hotel. The first night I killed 6 roaches in my room. When I complained I was moved to a nicer room. The owner then made me pay $22 extra a night for said nicer room.

I moved from another hotel that was in the city of Huntington Beach but was about 10 miles away from the pier/downtown and they accomidated me very quickly at Sun N...
