This is in general an acceptable place. Overall, I think that the Best Western properties have a good set of standards and this property pretty much meets them. It's a good place to sleep, shower, and change. Since that is our main use of a hotel (we aren't the types that use amenities like the pool, exercise room, or spa), this was fine.
There were a couple of maintenance issues that should have been taken care of and reported by housekeeping, but the room was clean and updated and worked out fine for us. On the positive, the room (upstairs) had a view of the ocean and given how close it was to a main street, it was very quiet. Parking was free and ample.
A few downsides, though. This seems minor, but the little corner shelf in the shower was placed in a horrible spot and I kept banging my elbow into it. The breakfast is the typical coffee, cereal, fruit (cantaloupe) and breads. There were hot offerings, beside the waffles and oatmeal, which were scrambled eggs and potatoes. I didn't try those because they looked like the typical awful ones at those types of free hotel breakfasts. I put my english muffin through the toaster at the darkest setting twice and it was not only still not toasted, but barely warm. However, it was nice to sit outside and eat.
There is one serious problem with this place. The stairs leading up to the second floor are flat-out dangerous. They are so narrow that you can't put your entire foot on it and it is a serious fall hazard. I'm actually surprised that OSHA or some regulator hasn't ordered it fixed. Both my wife and I nearly tripped on it several times.
This Best Western isn't the best one, but it is satisfactory for the most part and we'd stay there again. less
