You can find better A review of Clocktower Inn Hotel
Not much positive to say about this hotel. It certainly does not deserve its 3 stars given by most sites. I went thru Hotwire, so I did not intentionally pick it. I certainly would have been suspect of a $80 3-star hotel.
The high-speed internet access is by request--they turn it on when you ask and charge $8 per night. I requested it, then requested again when they had not turned it on in 20 minutes. The rooms did not come with ethernet cords.
The rooms are dark and walls are dirty. The sink did not drain because the plunger was smashed down. The windows were not well sealed, so you could hear most outside nice. The carpets were spotted and in need of cleaning. Despite advertising as such, rooms do not have irons/ironing boards in them.
Pressing the Front Desk/Wake-up call button on the phone gets you no where. The first time I tried, it rang over 10 times before I hung up. Pressing "0" yielded better results.
On the plus side, it is walking distance to the beach (across the freeway), and most downtown attractions.
