“Best place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2015

Stayed in room 3. It's not the Hilton but it's quaint and it's clean. Directly across from the beach and 8 minute walk to Pier and all the shopping. You can't beat this place. Lady who runs the motel is so accommodating. She goes out of her way to help you. Will Definitely Stay here if I ever go back again.

Room Tip: Take top room so you wont hear walking above you. We did but we didn't care. We loved our stay!

My husband and I stayed here over Memorial Weekend. It's a typical beach motel, which is exactly what I wanted. I knew we would be at the beach most of the time so I didn't want anything fancy or too expensive. It was a bit expensive for such a ordinary motel room but hey, it's right at the beach. We parked our car upon arriving and didn't get in the car again until we left. It's close enough to walk to the beach and to the pier and the downtown section of Huntington Beach so it was quite handy. The room was a little small but it was clean and even a bit homey. The office has coffee in the morning so I would go get a cup o joe and sit at the tables outside and drink my coffee looking at the ocean. We would definitely stay here again.

I stayed for 5 nights here in August of 2007. I was younger then but i still remeber some of the details to this day. The hotel rooms were average and there were not that many rooms. There was also a lot of noise at the property next door. The hotel is located across PCH from the beach and is in the best spot in Huntington Beach!

I usually skip by small motels, because I have always had bad experiences with them. They are always dirty and run down, this was a really nice motel, with a beautiful ocean view and a short walk to the ocean. The lady at the front desk was accommodating and very sweet. Loved the stay and will stay again.

The motel is clean and well kept. Ample parking and no drive through traffic is allowed. The front desk is helpful and friendly with discount coupons, brochures and local knowledge and advice. The room itself is on a par with Super 8 accommodations, which is a cut above Motel 6. Furnishing and bedding are designed to endure ocassional sand, though a courtyard hose is provided for foot and leg rinse off before entering your room. The plumbing was in good condition and there was both central air and an overhead fan. Neither interfered with sleep. If you are not used to it, the traffic noise from Pacific Coast Highway is noticeable. If it is a concern, take a Benedryl and sleep through the night undisturbed. Too, like all motels, the walls always seem thinner than they are at home.

Early check in was a big plus as was a special rate for the kiting event we attended. We also appreciated that we could park our car in front of our room. At other big hotels in the area, there is underground parking. If you have valuables and do not wish to bring them into your room each night, being near the car is a real plus.

In conclusion, this motel is not a destination resort. However, if you mean to spend time in Surf City USA, minutes from the sand and a few minutes more from the shopping area, this is a good choice...complete with funky plastic room fob and a metal key ;}

Room Tip: Ask when booking if room is pet friendly/smoking allowed etc.
