Nice hotel in an excellent location. With one exception described below, the Staff could not have been nicer and more helpful. The hotel is in good shape, and fairly busy on weekends, in this Covid era. We had an Ocean Front King Suite...very nice, lots of room. Food in the Boardwalk Restaurant was very good, with the exception noted below. Have… Read more
Nice hotel in an excellent location. With one exception described below, the Staff could not have been nicer and more helpful. The hotel is in good shape, and fairly busy on weekends, in this Covid era. We had an Ocean Front King Suite...very nice, lots of room. Food in the Boardwalk Restaurant was very good, with the exception noted below. Have to give a shout out to Shea in Boardwalk, who was cheery, with great service and efforl with our large group, and when just my wife and I ate. Really enjoyed our stay. It should be noted if you have an ocean front room, Pacific Coast Highway can be pretty noisy during the day. No problem at night. The only negative was the Wednesday breakfast during our stay. On Monday and Tuesday, the food was excellent, and Shea's attentive service was perfect. But Wednesday, the entire kitchen staff must have changed. The service was adequate at best, and the food was bland. It was as if we had gone to an entirely different restaurant. And my wife and I had the same dishes!! Read less

I was at the hotel early September and encountered a very uncomfortable situation.

I was at the hotel early September and encountered a very uncomfortable situation. The hotel booked a wedding with over 300 people that lasted for at least 4 hours where masks were not required and people were clearly not social distancing. Yes the guests of the wedding didn't consider impact of their actions, but the hotel should of known better than to risk the well being of their other guests. At the very least, the hotel should of advised people when booking the reservations. Just unacceptable behavior by all parties. Read less

I've stayed here multiple times. Usually, it's okay. This experience was horrible. We got a cabana and the servers rarely come around. The fridge was supposed to be stocked with bottled water, it wasn't, and we never received any water once we asked for it. For dessert, we ordered cookies and ice cream from in-room dining.

I've stayed here multiple times. Usually, it's okay. This experience was horrible. We got a cabana and the servers rarely come around. The fridge was supposed to be stocked with bottled water, it wasn't, and we never received any water once we asked for it. For dessert, we ordered cookies and ice cream from in-room dining. The cookies were awful! The 4 people in my group couldn't even eat one. They tasted like sawdust. There is no way they were made in-house. Chips Ahoy would have been better. And instead of ice cream, they just decided to serve us milk. Didn't say anything about it. Just showed up with milk. Breakfast the next day came out lukewarm and not a single order was correct. We asked for hot sauce and by the time it made its way to the table 15 minutes later, everyone's meal was completely cold. But the tipping point, and the only reason I feel like I have to write this review is because of Ryan at the front desk. Upon checkout, I had a dispute about a charge I incurred. He checked on it with concierge and told me I was wrong and that I should be charged. I asked to speak to the manager. He went to get the manager and came back and said something to me that I couldn't hear. I asked him to repeat and he yelled at me, "I said he'll be hear in a moment." After waiting for the manager for 5 minutes, Ryan said, "You might as well leave, he's going to tell you the same thing." I then asked for the GM's information. Again, Ryan walked away. He came back and said, "She'll call you." I asked for her name and contact number. He gave me her name, Paulette, but refused to give me her number. It's been 3 days and I still haven't heard from the GM. Hilton, my husband uses you every week for business travel. Not any more. Read less

This hotel is a great place to go. Excellent views, walking distance to everything! The pools (both) are excellent! This is a great place for families as well. Big pool with water slide. I also enjoyed the adult pool. Good service and views of the ocean. We especially LOVED the rooftop bar! Fantastic views, great service and delicious cocktails and food. I just wish they could open that place up earlier in the days while we were there. there were alot of weddings going on while we were there so it must be a great place for weddings as well......................
