We really enjoyed our time at this hotel. It is in a beautiful location, right across from the beach (although no views except from the rooftop terrace.) We stayed in Suite 100, which was nice and spacious, with a king, queen, and and queen sofabed, and the best part, 1-1/2 bathrooms. Nice 50" TV (or thereabout!) and the DVD library adds a nice touch. Continental breakfast is plentiful, and the afternoon cookies are a nice touch. We were given plenty of bath towels (8 sets!) so we were never short, and the small fridge is great, along with the coffeemaker and microwave.
I cannot say enough about this wonderful little gem of a hotel. Clean is not enough to describe the room we stayed in. The room we had was in the corner with a ocean view. I was a little worried about the noise, but do not worry, the windows are double paned. The staff greeted us by name, took us on a tour of the place, and left a nice note on the bed. Woke up and opened the door to a LA Times, with a note about the hotels many services. The room is perfect, I could not find anything to complain about except for the fact we had to leave.
We had such a great experience at this hotel that we were planning our next trip while we were still there. Everyone was so friendly. We were on the 3rd floor in a corner room (#304) and had a great view of the ocean and bay. The afternoon cookies really hit the spot after riding our bikes on the boardwalk. We also enjoyed the roof deck in the evening with a glass of wine. I will recommend this hotel to my friends and family.
Warren greeted us with a big smile and friend "Hello". We felt ourselves unwind right then, after the long drive to the coast. He gave us a tour and we loved it all. The location is a few minutes from the beach, fewer minutes to the harbor, a short walk to good (and great) restaurants, shopping, and the pier. We never drove our car the entire four days. Just walked everywhere. The room was decorated in a sunny beach style, which was great. The bed was comfortable. Everything was clean and neat. The pillows were a bit odd.
Great hotel! The rooms were clean and nice, great and friendly service, nice terrace where you can have breakfast and enjoy the evening. They also have complimentary beach equipment. Great location, not far from a nice beach. Delicious complimentary cranberry cookies. Awesome.
So pleasantly surprised! Super clean, super friendly! Great breakfast! Loved the decor, so perfect for a beach-town. It reminded me of your favourite auntie's house, so welcoming and wonderful. Best feature though is its proximity to the beach! Literally across the street. Stay here, you won't regret it!!
Back again with some additional family members. Great as usual and excellent weather for mid February. All staff friendy as usual and a big thanks to Lisa and Ralph who assited us with a couple of problems we had. They asked and listened to our concerns and addressed them more than satifactorily, A+. Family members had not been here before and yes they too would come back, as will we.
...a small hotel that represents good value and fantastic service. We had planned to stay there for two days at the beginning of our holiday while we searched for a more upscale hotel. Instead we ended up staying at the Bay Shores for six wonderful days. The location is close to the pier and restaurants (Momma D's is excellent). Loved the warm cookies that are served every day in the hotel at 3:00. Very friendly and helpful staff. Really easy access to the Pacific Coast highway and the 55 freeway.
This is a great place! The rooms were beautiful and very clean. The beach is so close and the service was spectacular! Bridget was very sweet and helpful with local recommendations. The hospitality and overall feeling of warmth from everyone there was great. The rooftop deck was a great perk with beautiful views. I will absolutely stay there again if I have the fortune of being in the area
We stayed here last year after running in our first ever Half marathon.....the Surf City marathon.... and enjoyed it so much we returned again this year. My husband and our friend took on the challenge of the full marathon while the ladies tackled the half again. We can not say enough about the great staff, Warren, Ed and Bridgette were always willing to help us with anything we requested....wine glasses, hair dryers, directions or suggestions on places to see and eat. The morning breakfasts were great and the evening cookies delicious.
