Thank you so much for coming to stay with us and for taking the time to leave your review. Thank you for mentioning the proximity to the beach; just a short walk across to 18th Street and the Pacific Ocean is right there. Hope we get to enjoy your company again soon!

What an amazing find! I'll add my twopence worth to what others have said. The service and little touches are amazing it really feels home from home - no rules like some hotels!

No complaints! Friendly staff, nice clean rooms. Short walk to the boardwalk and beach. Sun deck on roof. They loan beach chairs and umbrellas. Nice amenities! Very pleasant stay! On a busy street but traffic noise was not a problem, and I don't like noisy places. I would stay here again.
