This is the first time I stayed at this hotel though I passed by so many times before. It is right at the corner of Pacific coast highway and Artesia Blvc. Frankly, when I first saw the outside of the hotel, I was thinking that this hotel was a bit "aged" and that's why I never walk in. This time I decided to give it a shot and I am glad I did. After walking in, I was surprised at how spacious and beautiful the hotel is. The lobby is very big with extremely high ceiling which you can only see at high-end or 4. 5 stars hotel. It looks very airly and I was quite amazed. The staff worked at the front desk is very friendly and helpful. Outside the lobby, there is a beautiful garden and a deck area with seats and tables for people to enjoy the sunset and ocean view. At first I thought I might probably get a crappy room for what I paid (I got a good deal for an ocean view bungalow) but I was wrong. The room is clean.The bed and comforters are absolutely great. The staff is nice and helpful, and and the view is awesome. It's definitely worth every penny. Although the hotel is not new, but it is kept very well. The only drawback is the signal of the TV which you may need to adjust sometimes. But I am not gonna spend time watching TV when I could go out and have fun. After all, I am very happy to find my little "get away" place and I will definitely come back again and again....
