  • Outstanding in Every Way

    "We asked for a quiet king room on the second floor for one night. Got it. Enjoyed a wonderfully appointed exceptionally clean room. Bathroom was a delightful surprise. Too crispy to try the pool. Staff was first rate. Price was oh so reasonable. Location: fabulous. Smart choice for us, and any travelers."

  • Simple, comfortable beach bungalow

    "Quaint, comfortable converted motel. No frills, but it has comfortable beds, AC, and blackout shades, everything for a good nights rest. There’s also a pool, but the big draw is Windansea beach, one of San Diego’s prettiest beaches, a block away. People flock there to watch the sunset"

  • Quick Work Trip

    "This was a fantastic spot to stay. Walking distance from beach and great food and coffee. Will absolutely stay again! Also bonus that the beach within distance is Windandsea, which is in my opinion one of the best beaches in San Diego. Especially for photos!"

  • Would Stay Again!

    "The decor is very modern and adorable. I felt very safe during my stay. I love the location in proximity to the ocean. The front desk was pleasant and helpful... I would totally recommend and stay here again!"
