large comfortable room with all the amenities you would expect.

the air conditioner was very loud and there was a lot noise from the freeway. The hotel proximaty to the freeway is convenient but made it difficult to sleep because of the noise.

Acted fast to our neighbors who yelling and fighting. Friendly and clean.

Our check out time was noon and at 8:30 housekeeping was banging on the door and then open the door. I was yelling hold on and they didn't listen. When i called the front desk it was our fault .

The location and the pool area.

The bathroom was too small and the sliding door to it would not close. BAD lighting. No natural light.

The front desk lady gave us the wrong room number and we were trying to get into someone else's room. They opened the door in the their towel and weren't too happy. When we told her about it didn't act as though it was a big deal nor did she apologize for it. We were right next to a construction area and the noise right outside our window started at 7:30 am!! So much for sleeping in on our trip?! It was loud!! Will not be back.

Beautiful hotel. The room was clean and specious. Reception was very friendly. The restaurant on site was a plus. It was close to the beach. The location was close to where I needed to be.

I didn't like the fact that I had to pay for parking.

The spa personnel were not too friendly. The massage therapist reprimanded me for missing her instructions. Made me uncomfortable despite the fact that I should be having a calming experience.

If you think this a 5 star Spa its is not - It is not tranquil either - I went last weekend and it was full of screaming kids - probably 60% of the hotel was under 14 yrs old - The brochure is totally false advertising and does not mention anything about it being a kids spa. - There are only 2 restaurants one of which we were going to have to wait for a table for 2.5 hrs. If you want a peaceful , romantic weekend this is not the place. If you are a family with children great.

Charming. Great location and customer service. However, food was average and room was very small. Lovely pool area and great location in village.

The cost of parking should be waived for hotel guests.

nowhere to hand out and enjoy the scenery, needs more seating areas, golf course takes up whole area. bathroom had mold along caulking.

This could be a really great hotel if there were more places to sit outside.

The gym and the pool were awesome. The room was nice and comfortable and clean.

Hubby and I did our first night away from the kids here - 1 night was not enough. Everything was lovely - except the noise of the construction outside our room. When we said something upon checkout they just said 'oohhhh, sorry about that.' It's fine - but it would have been nice to have them that they would fix it for the next customer, or ?? It is a very expensive place to be woken up early by crazy noise and shouting workers... (But we were the lucky ones that had the din right outside the room - everyone else was probably fine.)

Location was perfect. We did LEGOLAND all day then checked in to relax and freshen up for dinner. Walked right across the street for some awesome fish tacos at Rubio's. Then took a quick 2 minute drive to the ocean to watch the sunset! Great stay!

The courtyard was great! We drank our coffee in the morning on the provided patio chairs while our kids rode their scooters around. (After the great continental breakfast!)

The beds were super comfortable, so comfortable my 7 yr old asked if we could take the beds with us! There was a grocery store 5 min away (just that far due to the stop lights) and a very clean microwave and fridge in the room.

Had some issues getting the door to open- the handle got stuck.

Even though the hotel was near the freeway it was very quiet. I would definitely stay here again- felt safe to be stay in even as a mom traveling alone with two young children

The breakfast was very good. Room was spacious.

Too close to the freeway and rooms are difficult to darken adequately--light seeps in around the curtains/door etc.

Prices are average price per night of stay and may not include taxes and fees. "Total" includes our estimate of the taxes and fees. Please verify the total cost on the provider's site before you complete your reservation. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
