"Across the street from the beach, and close to excellent restaurants and shops. This is a historic landmark motel built in hacienda style. It's older, which showed in some of the fixtures, but it's clean and well-maintained. The center courtyard has a pool, shops, and restaurants. Outstanding, accommodating staff. Everyone was friendly, efficient, and professional. No on-site parking, but street parking wasn't a problem for us even on a busy holiday weekend.2016-06-09"
"The hotel was convenient and high quality. Nice, spacious room with a comfortable, clean bed. Exceptional pool and workout room. The restaurant was great, and there were other restaurants within walking distance.2016-08-07"
"The motel was under construction, and it ruined what was supposed to be a special stay. Our ocean view was instead a view of construction, and the work woke us up at 7 AM every morning. No one answered the front desk phone, so I had to go down to the lobby for everything. I was extremely disappointed.2019-11-11"
"The hotel room was nice, clean, and had a good view. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom had plenty of counter space. Nice lounge area on the 5th floor, and there was a good deli downstairs.2021-06-03"
"The room was small but nice, and we enjoyed the view. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, and breakfast was great.2016-09-10"
"The hotel room was average, and only a few of the electrical outlets worked. Limited counter space in the bathroom. Not enough toilet paper provided. On the bright side, the location was great, the pool area was nice, and the outdoor bellman was extremely helpful and kind.2017-05-17"
"Terrific location. The mattresses were terrible; I could hear the springs popping, and if I sat on the edge of the bed, I'd roll off. The hotel clerks were never helpful when I asked a question, but the bellhops and valets were excellent. Parking fees were ridiculous.2015-08-12"
"Good place to stay. The hotel staff was friendly, and the breakfast buffet was excellent.2018-10-06"
"My only complaint was that there was no trash can in the living area of the hotel room.2017-04-03"
"I called the hotel clerk about getting ice and was told to take the bucket for the ice maker in the fridge to the bar and they'd fill it with ice. On my way down, a maintenance worker offered to take care of it for me, and even came to the room and showed me how to turn on the ice maker in the fridge.2015-11-17"
"Clean room and friendly, helpful staff. Stay at this hotel.2018-06-08"
"In the heart of the Gaslight District, so there was easy access to restaurants and stores. Seemed expensive for the size and view. Our room was the size of a postage stamp, and it was noisy since it faced the street. Our "city view" was of a tall office building. The hotel lobby had dim lighting.2015-04-26"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
