    « Hmm ok for one night »

    Stayed one night on it way back to LAX check in good and hotel was not very occupied. We had the room right next top service entrance and between 3pm and 6pm when we checked in the constant noise was terrible do not take this room number 61 I think it is also net to the drinks machines so people gather. Sadly most of the noise was service staff shouting and having a chat right outside our room. Think need reminding this is a hotel and they have guests not a social party. Couldn't really walkt to anything apart from a CVS or petrol station.Rooms dated and both like picture. Just ok for quick stop

    « Not bad for the price $$ »

    We stayed here for over approx. 10 days while waiting for my apartment to be ready for move in. Good neighborhood, right by Walgreens, and fast food. Their is a shoddy strip mall with a really old local bar, a marijuana dispensary and liquor store, pizza joint-- all in a row to either indulge or ignore. I would avoid that tiny strip mall all together at night at the corner of Yorktown and beach. The rooms were cleaned every day, the pool was nice, staff was pleasant and even had washer and dryer on premises that really helped out. I would stay here again if I didn't live here already.

    « Perfect one night stay ?? »

    Standard motel layout ie lobby reception with outside room entrance. We stayed in room 106 bottom floor next to the vending machines which I thought may be noisy but for one night I can ear plug myself up ! However for a nice surprise the room was spacious fairly modern but lovely clean. And as for the noise we both slept like a teenager in love , and coupled with a nice breakfast a perfect short stay hotel????

    « Surprisingly Nice »

    Older property with outside room entrances which is not our preference, but the inside of the room was surprisingly nice and appeared recently updated. Beds were quite comfy, and breakfast was good tho the menu didn't change in the 3 days we were there. Overall an above average stay.

    « Nice stay »

    Overall it was a nice stay. We had a clean room, the breakfast area has a lot to choose from. The building is older, so you can hear a lot of outside noise, and the feet of others when they're walking. Not a deal breaker at all for us, just an observation.

    « Unbelievably Awful »

    Hard to imagine that this place had Trip Advisor cert of excellence in their lobby. As is our practice upon checking in we check the bed / mattress -- imagine our bad surprise when we lifted the mattress to look for bugs but instead found dozens of condoms and a roll of aluminum foil between mattress and box springs - really?? Not sure what type of guests have been staying there but we could not get out fast enough -- would never ever recommend this place!

    « Surf City Here we Cone! »

    We recently spent the weekend here to visit family. The hotel is on a main road with great shopping and restaurants nearby. The pool and spa were clean with great lounge chairs and tables. Our grandkids enjoyed themselves swimming while the adults visited during the evenings there. The breakfast was great and the price was just right!

    « Great First Stay »

    The first stay on our California road trip.The hotel was clean and comfortable if a little tired in places. This was more than made up fro by the staff. A more cheerful and welcoming bunch of people it would be hard to find.Of particular mention was Bradi in the dining room. Despite being old enough to be her grandparents she took the time to chat to us and recommend the stunning resort of Corona Del Mar as a lovely place to visit. Her mum was also a great character. Also Parker who was in charge of the hot breakfast. A lovely young man who couldn't do enough to help. All a real credit to the hotel.

    « Nice place to stay »

    My wife and I spent the night here for the Surf City Run 2016. I checked trip advisor for the area and found that the reviews for this place were good. Booked the place and was pleasantly satisfied that all the good reviews were correct!! The hotel is about 2 miles from the beach and the staff was very nice and pleasant. Room was great! I have nothing bad to say about it. Breakfast was incredible and above what I even imagined. Not just your "normal" muffins but eggs, sausage, hash brown, pancakes, cereal, and a few drinks to choose from!! I would definately stay here again and recommend it. Enjoy your stay...

    « Close to the beach, clean older motel. »

    This is an older style motel, three stories with rooms all facing the parking lot, and a few rooms on the facing Beach Ave. We stayed here for 5 nights, our room was clean and well serviced. The pool looked clean and inviting, although we never got a chance to use it. The mattresses on the beds were somewhat worn, but other than that we had no complaints. Hot breakfast every morning was a plus, although the eating space was quite cramped with only 4 tables or so. Lobby staff always smiled and said hello as we passed through. Would recommend this motel to anyone looking for clean close accommodations at a reasonable price.

    Amazing hotel. Great Staff. Samuel was the best and very attentive. Good area. Pool and spa were crystal clear. Ground was free of trash. Clean rooms. Can't wait to come back. They will even let you plug in your electric vehicle.

    « Excellent Value »

    The hotel is near all the attractions in Huntington Beach. Its an older hotel but extremely well maintained. Hotel staff is excellent. Access to the rooms is from the outside. Given the nearly year-round perfect weather SurfCity enjoys, leaving the room door open delivers a wonderful cool dry breeze.

    « We stayed at the BW for a business trip. »

    The room was satisfactory, plenty of space, clean, nice spacious bathroom. The hotel offered buffet breakfast each morning with hot and cold items and fresh fruit which was satisfactory. All of the staff were professional and helpful. Enjoyed the central location of this hotel making it very convenient to travel for business in Newport Beach and the general Orange County area. There is no shortage of restaurant and retail stores on Beach Blvd. Plenty of good places to eat.

    « Good location/good prices »

    The Best Western Surf City is a good location - off beach but still a very reasonable drive to beach (5 minutes). While we were there, the hotel was offering a promo that reimbursed us for one day of beach parking. Hotel was a good choice for the price - clean, comfy, good breakfast and easy hotel parking. We even got early check-in, which we love.

    « Great place! »

    The staff here was very welcoming and accommodating, from check in to check out everyone went out of their way to make sure we had a good visit. Even let us know to allow extra time for traffic to the airport. The room was spotless and spacious. Also very quiet, considering we stayed over Surf City weekend and there were plenty of people having a good time.

    This hotel was picked based on based on being too tired to drive any farther. Found Cesar very friendly and quick at check in. Happy to find a nice breakfast in the morning. Room was clean. A little worn around the edges. The desk chair looked like it had been dragged behind a car. Air conditioner worked.

Free and Delicious breakfast with lots of choices, eggs, hash browns, sausage, pancakes, cereal. etc. Very roomy! A Wonderful hot tub & pool! Plenty of parking! Very close to The Beach, Disney, and Restaurants! Best of all, The staff was very helpful & nice!

    Compact hotel with good pool and jacuzzi and full breakfast. Internet is fast, though it often required a daily log in for operation. Sufficient parking (with a courtesy parking pass provided), nearby a Wallmart plaza with lots of stores for anything you need. No traffic noise as it is set back from Beach Boulevard. Very friendly and courteous staff. Only negative is lack of personal toiletries with a reliance on soap/shampoo dispenser in shower instead.

    « A Very Nice Stay!! »

    A Very Nice Best Western!! We were impressed with the size of the room and amenities. Great location! Close to one of our favorite beaches and pier! Close to Downtown Huntington, which has great places to eat and is fun to explore! Clean and comfortable!! Three stories with outside hallways and elevator. Would stay again and recommend to others!! :-)

    « Amazing Staff »

    Well where do I start, The staff at this hotel which includes Theresa, Caesar ( I hope I spelled that right) and Michael, have been so amazing. I am what I consider a pain in the ))**(&* patron although I do not try to be, but the staff mentioned above have gone way beyond the norm to make sure that all my needs are taken care of on a regular basis. Thank you guys for putting up with me and making the process of checking in so pain free considering my circumstances. I love your hospitality. So if anyone gets a chance to stay at this wonderfully clean hotel with the most helpful staff ever, you absolutely should. It is always nice to come back here

    « Very friendly, Very clean »

    After my "5 HOUR" drive from Santa Barbara I approached the reception desk a bit stressed out. The drivers on the 405 are insane! As soon as I was greeted by a very sweet man (I wish I would have asked his name), I was able to relax and laugh about the horrible drive. When I entered my king room I was very impressed, by the size of the room and how clean it was. The bed was also comfortable. Next time I will take a top floor room, because the person in the room above me paced the length of their room over and over, and this person was not lite on his/her feet! I will be returning to the area in the future, after my niece has her baby, and I will stay there again.

    « Great Room and Staff »

    May and Mike were wonderful! They were very friendly and helpful and made sure that my wife and I had all the information we needed to make our stay that much better. The room was very clean and the restroom was stocked and very clean as well. The breakfast was outstanding and to be honest with you, we couldn't had ask for anything better for breakfast! Eggs, potatoes, sausage, toast, hot and cold cereal, pancakes, etc. This was a very enjoyable stay and would go back to this motel on our next visit!

    « awful place »

    « Better than expected »

    We had two adjoining rooms on the 2nd floor. Both had 2 beds, but one had a king and a double and was considerably larger, which was nice. It had newer carpet and bedding, but dated furniture. The desk chairs are uncomfortable, and are ripped, needing to be replaced. The pillows were horrible - too big and overstuffed. The larger room seemed to be updated a little more as it had a newer a/c unit. The one in the smaller room was old and extremely loud. The toilet/tub room is very small as the door barely clears the toilet, which was a bit of a challenge. This is an old style hotel with windows along the walkways and parking lot, so it can be a little noise. The good news is they seem to have a strict noise/partying policy and we didn't have any problems. The pool area is in the middle of the parking lot. The pool and area are small, but very clean and equipped with lots of chairs. As for the breakfast, it was not very good. Typical stale bagels, muffins, yogurt cups, juice and coffee and cereal. Some kind of oatmeal maker and pancake maker. They also had eggs, a potato, and sausage, all of which was very salty. The area is very small with only a few tables. If it is crowded, plan on eating outside or taking it back to the room. Would we stay here again? Yes for the price and for the location we needed it to be. It was clean and the staff friendly. It's about a 5 minute drive straight down to the beach where you can park in the lot for $15.00 per day or on the street with meter parking. Super easy, if you go early.

    « Loved it! »

    The location is perfect for either the beach, Knott's Berry Farm or both! It is clean both inside and out, the staff are very friendly and helpful, especially May - she was just great! The breakfasts are very well stocked with some really great items. The fridge in the room was very cold and there were extra pillows in the closet. The pool and spa were great too. Although our family did not need them, it was really pleasing to note the two chair assist machines - one by the spa and one by the pool. I assume this would be used for someone with a special need to allow them the ability and freedom to swim too. Very cool!

    « Not a business hotel »

    For folks with families on vacation this is probably a decent option here. For business travelers expect to hear people on the floor above, neighbors TV from rooms with a connecting door, and the occasional slamming door. Probably pretty normal stuff for a budget family oriented hotel. Room was clean and reasonably updated.Price good for this area.

    « Comfortable, clean, quiet and simple »

    Room was clean, simple and the beds were very comfortable. The fridge was cold, extra pillows and blanket in the huge open closet nestled in the back away from view. Quiet at night, during the day a little loud due to the screams of children at the daycare next door, but you should be at the beach, right?! There are grocery stores close by and the beach is just a three minute drive away.

    « No water »

    The first morning of our stay, we were notified that there would be no water from 9:00 am to noon. That meant early wake up to make sure we got in a shower. No water to even flush the toilet. Office staff not particularly friendly, just business. Overall, the stay was very nice. The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was good. Crowded in the dining room. We would stay here again.

    « First time »

    This property is located on east side of Beach Boulevard so if your traveling down south you will have to go to the light and make a U turn. Being close to a major street you can hear traffic noise from passing vehicles I suspect it would diminish the further you are away. Being on the second floor of four I could hear the tenants from the third floor walking around. I found the in room AC worked great and the breakfast options where better than most. Candy at the front desk was friendly and helpful.

    « Good night sleep »

    We only stayed one night after graduation. Room was large enough for 4 of us, convenient having a fridge for leftovers, table & chairs for cards or board game. Free parking. Location was not near beach but was convenient to suit our needs.

    « Great Service »

    The location is not the greatest, but the service was excellent. Kudos to the staff for letting us arrive late and using the microwave for heating our leftovers from Don Jose. Caesar greeted us when we arrived and went out of his way to make sure our stay was comfortable. The jacuzzi was pleasant, but it closes at 10:00pm. I laughed at the "pancake" machine that produced barely edible results. Luckily, Denny's was close by. All in all it was a pleasant experience.

    « Not worth the price »

    This Best Western was just average. I have stayed at several Best Westerns all along the West coast and Northwest coast of the US recently and I gave great reviews of them all except for this one, which is in my own back yard. The room was average and the price was high. No microwave and we were given a senior room with a shower chair etc when we didn't ask for one.

    « Satisfied with our stay overall. »

    Upon arrival, check in was smooth and easy. They did require a $100 deposit since I booked on Expedia, but that was refunded IMMEDIATELY upon check-out. No snacks available at check in, just water and coffee. Room was a good size, beds and pillows were comfortable. Our room had a refrigerator but no microwave. Parking was free and sufficient. Pool was NOT heated. Overall, a decent stay. Only stayed one night since the hotel wouldn't honor the price from Expedia for us to extend our stay, so we moved to another Best Western for the next leg of our trip.

    « Nice hotel »

    We spent two nights here. Our room was nice with 2 queen beds. Larger than we expected. We were near the back of the hotel so it was quiet. Breakfast was good with lots of options for everyone. The ladies at the front desk were very friendly. Loved being able to get to the Huntington Beach pier that was only 2 miles away.

    « NO BED AVAILABLE IN SPITE OF CONFIRMED RESERVATION »

    On April 24,2016, I made a reservation for June 4, 2016. I received an email confirmation with the correct date. Our reservation was part of a block of rooms reserved for a wedding. Upon arrival, we were informed our reservation was for June 3, 2016 and there was no room available. After research, the hotel admitted its error and promised a room in approximately one hour. We told the manager we had to be at the wedding at that time and were assured that there was no problem. At 9:15 PM I received a phone call from Ceasar stating that there was no room for us. No offer to find us a room at another hotel, no options, no remedies. He admitted the error was theirs, but nothing he could do. 9:15 PM in a strange town. We were to be at the wedding for two more hours. No assistance. We drove two hours, late at night, to get home. This is the worst service I have ever received from any hotel.

    We stayed here for one night while in Huntington Beach. The room was good enough for one night, especially because we didn't plan on being in the room much. It is an all exterior door building, with rooms typical of this style. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It met our expectations for the price paid.

    « Had hoped for more. »

    We chose this place based off of all the stellar reviews and TripAdvisor's ranking. We were expecting more. They couldn't tell us whether they would have a crib available until we arrived. Luckily they did and there was no extra charge. I was hoping for a little sun time, but the pool was not heated so we couldn't take the baby in the pool. Also be aware that if you are here during the week, there is a day care right next door, so yelling and crying kids within feet of the pool. No pool ambiance in any way. It was basically a pool in a parking lot. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast very good and plentiful. They let us know when we checked in that no partying was allowed. Partying definitely occurred Saturday night along with a domestic dispute and broken bottles. I would probably give this motel a 2.5.

    Great motel. Looks like a run of the mill 70s' property from the street, then you go inside. The management is wonderful; the desk clerks well trained and outgoing, the breakfast room clean, tidy, and serving up a very nice self-service meal. EVERY employee I encountered was genuine and outgoing. The room was more than adequate. comfortable bed and linens, lots of pillows, a small fridge and GOOD coffee pods! Special shout out to Ceaser and Brianna at the front desk; two employees who both deserve praise.

    Good location , Friendly staff , Decent breakfast . We have been coming here for over 15 years when we are in Huntington Beach. We are generally satisfied with this hotel but we do feel the price range now are up enough that other hotels closer to the Beach may be interesting...All in all , for carbuffs like us , the location is great for all that is going on in L.A.and Orange Cty.

    « Happy, happy on all accounts! »

    Traveling with a two teens for beach time and concert at the Observatory. A straight shot to the beach from the motel, restaurants not walking distance, but short trip by car. Central to all that the area offers. The rooms are clean, comfortable beds w/lovely linens. Little scrimpy on the bath products, but no problem asking for more. We were in a room furthest away from office - excellent wifi connection. The guest computer near office is FAST, with a beautiful big monitor. Avoid rooms that face the stairs/elevator. Privacy/noise issues. Our room had a door between the bathroom and bedroom. Other rooms that only the toilet/shower was behind a door, the sink counter was open to the sleeping area. Washer and dryer available @ $2/load - convenient, as it was raining the days of our visit. Hot breakfast is basic, but you won't walk away hungry or thirsty. We walked down to Mother's Market and Kitchen for some delicious vegetarian meals and snacks.

    « Best Western needs improvement »

    It was definitely the worst hotel I've stay in for the past 8 years. However, I have mostly stayed at more luxurious types of hotels. Therefore, I will only compare my stay with other hotels that I have been in of the same star rating and quality caliber. This hotel was too pricey for its quality, and was inflexible. They experienced a blackout the night of my stay (the rest of the neighborhood had their lights on). i probably would not recommend this hotel, and I am not returning.

    « The Beach on a Budget »

    The Best Western is a logical choice for visiting Huntington Beach on a budget. The rooms are clean, and the cleaning service is top notch. Rooms are large, and the parking is free (something to note). I did not use the pool, but it is there if you need to swim. Breakfast is included, buffet style, and has options of pancakes, bagels, cereal and fruits. Quite a selection for a comp breakfast. As with many Best Westerns, you will have some ambient room / road noise, but the AC works and Dish Network TV had plenty of choices. Staff is friendly and takes their jobs seriously. Costs you about half of what it would to stay on the beach, and it is literally 10 minutes down the road.

    « What an unexpected gem! »

    My daughter and I stayed for five nights at the Best Western Regency Inn while sightseeing in So. Cal. The location is great, within two miles of the beach, the pier and tons of shops and restaurants, and only 20 minutes from Disneyland as well! Access to I-405 to one of several airports is also just a couple of miles away. The rooms have been refurbished very nicely, the lobby is open and friendly, the breakfasts (part of the stay) offer hot and cold meals, and everything is kept spotless. The pool and hot tub were clean, well kept and in great condition. Finally, the staff here are very friendly and knowledgeable. Great experience all around, but especially with Christine and May at the front desk. Christine took care of our reservations, ensuring we got exactly what we had paid for and did so courteously. May was a constant positive in our mornings...always cheerful and helpful. When I asked for something she jumped on it right away. I would definitely come back to this family-friendly, clean, safe and restful hotel!

    Clean, attractive, and centrally located hotel near PCH and the beach. The rooms are large and clean, and the staff is great. May at the front desk was very friendly and helpful.

    « Exceeded Our Expectations »

    My husband and I wanted to stay in the Huntington area for a few nights and found this B.W on Priceline. The price was reasonable and we already knew what we would have expected from this hotel chain. We believe this was a motel before and though it might be a bit dated on certain things, everything else what the hotel offered exceeded our expectations. Upon checking in, Mihir, was so friendly, welcoming and efficient at checking us in. Maybe he sensed we were tired from our travels. He provided us a room on the 3rd floor and were quite pleased with it. The room was huge and spacious (400 s.f). There were 2 queen beds, round table, 2 full back chairs, entertainment unit, dresser drawer, desk and night stand. With all that, we still had so much room to walk freely. The beds were comfy and cozy with lots of pillows, which I enjoy. Breakfast was pretty good too. They offered a variety of hot and cold items. Lots of bagels, bread, danish, croissants, 3 -4 kinds of cereal, sausage, eggs, hash brown and a high tech pancake maker. Dispenser for 4 kinds of juice and a coffee maker as well (I think the coffee in the lobby is bolder than the one in the dining room). The location was good for us. It was central to most of our interests, shopping and dining. The hotel was quiet even though there's a daycare across the way but we didn't mind it at all. Check out was fast and efficient by Mihir as well. He even asked us what our plans were and assisted us by looking things up for our travels to Palm Springs. Very genuine and really looking after guests needs is definitely on his priority list. The only thing I need to mention was we did call down one day to ask a question and another person said they would get back to us in 5 minutes. They didn't get back to us but we figured out our answer in the end. All in all, we would definitely recommend this place!

The room and lobby areas are clean and the desk clerk was pleasant and helpful . The Breakfast was delicious and the area clean . I have stayed here before and have always been pleased. The pool and hot tub are really nice too.

    « Nice room/location/staff, pretty quiet »

    Right on Beach Blvd but I didn't notice any road noise (Thursday/Friday night). Staff were friendly. Breakfast was typical but nice and well presented. Bed was comfortable and internet worked well but I didn't use it extensively.

    « Great Stay at BW Surf City - Huntington Beach »

    I had a WONDERFUL stay last week at this BWestern in Huntington Beach, CA. The property was extremely clean and you could see the pride the owners and staff took in the hotel. Everything was clean and kept up with pride. Great breakfast, very friendly staff and very comfortable bed. Overall a fantastic property and experience.

    « Clean, comfortable and friendly »

    We stayed at the Best Western Regency Inn for a family wedding weekend. We were checked in by May who was very friendly, helpful and accommodating throughout our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool/hot tub area is lovely and the grounds are well maintained. Breakfast was much more than the standard continental that is available at most places as it included scrambled eggs, hash browns, sausage links and pancakes. It is not a luxury hotel by any means, but a great value for the traveler passing through or needing a base for other activities.

    « lodging for the Surf City Marathon Half Marathon »

    This was our 8th year staying here while participating at the Surf City Half Marathon. The hotel is very clean and the staff, especially Mary is friendly and helpful. They have a good selection of food for breakfast and they started breakfast early for all of us participating in the race. I highly recommend this hotel for any vacation/get away to Huntington Beach.

    « Great stay in HB »

    Stayed here three nights while visiting family in HB. I stayed one night in the King suite and two nights in a 2 Queen bed room. Both rooms were super clean and beds were comfy plus lots of space in the room. Wifi was great and rooms had fridge, microwave and good size flat screen. Breakfast was above average. Spent time at the pool and hot tub after the beach and both were very clean as well as the pool area. Staff was great especially Christine who worked out a few details I had on my stay. This will be my goto place to stay in HB from now on.

    « A+! »

    My stay here was very unsurpassable! I stayed in a suite room with jetted tub and separate shower. Room was very nice, upgraded, comfortable, clean, crisp bed, great view to the street, stylish, and very roomy! It was not your average small square "suite room" with only a bed and bath. It felt very fancy! Breakfast downstairs was very good. Not your average fruit loops and orange juice breakfast at most other hotels lol. Good tasting eggs, sausage, pancake machine, lots of choices for drinks and grains, a spacious dining room with plenty of tables for everyone. And the coffee was good! Staff was very friendly and courteous. They answered all of my questions and needs promptly and professionally. And for a hotel near the beach, the rate was very reasonable for a suite! I will definitely be staying here again! ????????????

    Great place to stay. Recommend to anyone staying in the Huntington Beach area. Nice rooms, nice pool, easy access to the beach and other areas in Orange County. Shopping and great restaurants are all close by.

    « Huntington Beach weekend »

    The staff is wonderful and extremely helpful in every way. The location is terrific and conveniently located with restaurants in every direction. Grocery stores and convenient stores are within walking distance. Although, if you want a quiet fulfilled night sleep, this is the last place you want to stay. If you have young children and they are well mannered than they will be staying in a hotel whose other children have NO manners or a proper upbringing. So be prepared to lose sleep.

    « Close to Huntington Beach and short drive from Little Saigon »

    Very good customer service. Continental BF was quite good and also included scrambled eggs, BF sausages and hash browns among the usual fares. We had rooms on the 2nd floor (206, 207) which were good. Hotel is close to Huntington Beach where we watched a beautiful sunset one evening. It is also a short drive to Little Saigon which we visited 2 days during the Vietnamese New Year (TET) festival.

    This hotel is so convenient to the beach. We rode our bikes. I was there for the SurfCity Half Marathon. May who is the customer service rep who checked us in is the bomb!!! We had such excellent care from her. I have stayed in dozens of hotels for my runs and nobody has taken such care in my accommodations as she did. This hotel was comfortable close to bars, fast food and the beach. But i'm telling you May made my entire stay...

    My son and I had adjoining rooms which was nice. May was very sweet & helpful with my reservation. She personally walked down to my room to see if everything was satisfactory. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. I do wish they had microwaves. I would recommend this hotel and stay here again.

    We will actually be returning to this hotel for our bachelor/ette party. The continental breakfast was really good. I liked that they had eggs, sausage, and hashbrowns. The rooms were newly remodeled and quite large and roomy. The toilet area was small but it's not exactly a deal breaker.

    « Great value! »

    We went to Huntington Beach to visit family and this was so much less expensive then other options. It's not on the beach but it was clean and updated. All the staff were very friendly and attentive. Free continental breakfast was better than most. Hot foods included scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns and pancakes. I saw another reviewer say it was in a crap part of town, I disagree. I would say it was not touristy. It's where locals live their lives and do their shopping. Short drive to the beach.

    « over priced in crap neighboorhood »

    Poor condition and somewhat dirty We keep asking ourselves are we at the " Motel 6 " ? The big whip amenity was a warm bottle of water ,not even in the refrig! I guess because the location has a name with a beach attached justified the high rates, even through IT was way far away form the beach !

    « JUST ONE ISSUE »

    This is an older hotel, well maintained. Everything works well. The guest laundry was one of the cleanest I used on our 10 week road trip. Bed was good, staff very friendly and helpful, nice pool. I had absolutely no issues with this hotel until I noticed the signs posted by the dept. of health regarding dangerous chemicals in and around the property. Not sure how serious this is as they haven't closed the hotel and there is a large daycare next door. At any rate we stay 6 nights and have been home since early Nov. - not glowing in the dark or growing any extra heads YET

    « left behind items not returned »

    I left some items behind and called the hotel to report this within 45 minutes of leaving. The items were not returned to me. 5 shirts. I believe that they should have made certain to go down to the room to retrieve my items when I called instead of trusting your maid staff.

    Lovely hotel, very accommodating and helpful, friendly staff. Unfortunately we had noisy guests above us for two nights but staff dealt promptly with the problem when we reported it. Good breakfast, well presented. Would stay here again. Comfy beds, clean rooms .Laundry facilities were a real bonus as we were on a fourteen day road trip through California.

    « Pleasant stay, quiet accommodations »

    We arrived after midnight, stayed for only one night, and were gone by 9:00 a.m. It was a rest stop of sorts, the place we stayed after arriving in town and before we went sight-seeing and on to a wedding in another city. The exterior of the building was fine, but the exterior carpet was a little worn. Our room was on the second level, and I noticed that the walkway was a little sunken, so perhaps the balconies could use a little structural lift. The rooms are all recently renovated, and our room was very nice and clean. Nothing fancy, but perfect for what we needed. The hotel was quiet, and even being on a major local drag, I didn't notice any street noises. The staff was very polite and helpful. The hotel provides a hot continental breakfast. I think it was a decent breakfast for being complementary, and very convenient for a grab-and-go scenario, but if you love breakfast, you might prefer to dine out. The hotel also has a vending room with a few snacks, but the vending machines are change-only (no bills, no credit cards), so that was a little inconvenient. Ultimately, I think this hotel is a good choice for the traveler passing through. It's clean, quiet, good value, and has a friendly staff.

    « Best Westtern Regal, Huntington Beach, CA »

    I dread staying in motels because I'm adverse to carpeting and the carpeting is usually dull and dirty. Try wearing a pair of white socks in your room! I know that this is the most difficult area to keep clean so I always check the carpeting. The room's carpeting was nicely new and clean. It made for a peaceful night's sleep.

    « This is a hotel that inflated their features »

    Not very accessible for some one in a wheel chair, and uncomfortable beds.The handicapped features are not ADA acceptable. The wi-fi is not always functioning. They have a variety of breakfast items. The lamps in the room are not working with burnt out bulbs. Do not rent roll away cots as the springs are poking through the mattress. Not enough outlets for chargers. Motel 6 has better accommodations at a lower rate.
