A Wedding To Photograph

The wedding that we photographed was at this hotel. The wedding was stunning & the wedding coordinator was absolutely incredible!!! The stay, however, a bit different. There just wasn't anything extra special about the stay & about the experience. For the amount paid, my expectations were a bit higher. My only complaint was the noise. It was hard to sleep at night b/c you could hear just about everything. Kids crying, t/v's, and in the morning, maid service. It was really loud.

Cheap Tickets - stigma 2nd Class

I requested 2 queen beds via [...] This request was not honored. I called to confirm the day before our reservations. There was a attitude and comment made to the effect, well you reserved through [...] so what does that mean? Do we get substandards? I don't think $405 was cheap. cheap. First night, Room was noisy, sand bugs in the bed, the alarm clock went off every five minutes from 5:00 a.m. on. The neighbors were slamming their door, the water was cold after running it for 15 minutes. We were moved to another room on our second night, which was much better. However, the next day they starting setting off the fire alarm every few minutes from 10:00 a.m. onward. We did not receive any notice of this upon check in.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a great Deli next to the Shell Gas Station, which has outstanding choices of meats, cheeses and a great wine selection and is moderately priced. Great way to avoid expensive meals. It's a very short walk from the hotel. Breakfast is not included and is served in the adjacent building.

The Spyglass had great food and a patio overlooking the Pacific. The service at the pool was great and they have a happy hour with a taco bar at this hotel.
