Great bang for the buckPros: Great location, clean, with friendly staff.Cons: No pool, but that's what the ocean's for.
Pros: We were in OC for the weekend for a scavenger hunt. The staff at the front desk was AMAZING and so helpful. Anything that we asked for they accommodated. The rooms are a bit small but for the price, the location and the friendly staff it was worth being a little crammed for the weekend. The location is great. Right on 14th street and you see the ocean from the room I was in. I would definitely stay here again :) Cons: Parking. The lot they have for residents is very small and spots are right. If your driving anything bigger than a sedan parking in the back may be challenging. Not impossible but challenging for sure.
