Excellent Location - 1 block walk to the beach!!! Pizza, Thai food, liquor store etc across the street. Also an easy drive to nearby Oxnard Restaurants, shopping, etc.
Customer Service - The staff
at this hotel were ALL super friendly.
Food: Happy Hour (4-6pm??) was cool. Chips, melted cheese, jalapenos, olives, pretzels, spiced peanuts, popcorn all good snacking munchies along with 3 choices of beers as well as red or white wine, juice and sodas.
Breakfast was mediocre with a pre-fixed omelette (not really warm), bagels, toast, muffins and a toaster, pancakes, dry cereal and oatmeal packages. I've definitely had better. Their coffee was good and they provide real creamers and real butter for toast. Also, they had coffee available all day.
Room: Our room (228) was on the 2nd floor (ugh big mistake because they had soccer families staying at the hotel with lots of kids and the people above us seemed to run back and forth all night and all morning). Also, we could hear EVERY sound outside and in the hallway as well as above us. I'm am very rarely bothered by noise but at this hotel I could barely sleep it was so annoying. The 2nd night was a little better because we turned on the A/C FAN to use the humming to drown out the outside noises which allowed us to fall asleep.
Our room had 5 lamps and each lamp had 2 plugs -- sounds perfect right? WRONG! All of the plugs were so large/loose that we could not use a single one to charge our cell phones because they wouldn't make a connection and would just fall out or jiggle. We had to use the kitchen or bathroom outlets.
TV remote controls and many channels weren't working properly but HBO was nice to have and I was bummed there is no "sleep" timer on the TV's.
WiFi was FREE and worked decent most of the time.
Room Kitchen: Perfect! Refrigerator which worked well, microwave, plastic ware, soap to wash dishes, sink and counter space were good.
Cleanliness: Our room was very clean - no issues whatsoever.
Pool: I didn't use the pool, just the pool area. The faux wicker seats were rather uncomfortable because they are made for large pillows but these don't have any pillows so I wasn't really able to sit out their for very long and just read a book.
We will definitely stay here again when in the area because I loved the location and the beach nearby was unbelievably quiet and peaceful. Room rates were decent too. [Less]
