Honestly, I'm not sure what the M considers reasonable accomodation for $300 a night, but it ain't this, IMO

The property is right on PCH and is very loud, also you can hear all your neighbors, especially upstairs stomping. The floors are sliding down so literally you could barely walk straight. The floors were also not cleaned prior to our arrival and were covered in sand. Wifi wasn't working and since there's no cell reception either, I'm glad we only stayed there to sleep for one night. The pool was a joke, open space, not pretty at all and it looks worse than the pic. Considering it was very pricy due to it being Malibu, it felt more like Motel 6. The bed was comfy though and there's public beach access 5 minute walk.

We first stayed here for my wife's birthday last year during the pandemic. It was a flawless experience. Falling asleep listening to the ocean was sublime. We decided to come back again this year, and everything was perfect once again, right up until sleeping time. There is now so much traffic, particularly large trucks going up and down PCH all night which shake the building, that a decent night's sleep was impossible. We got out of bed exhausted. This is certainly not the fault of the hotel. They do a great job. But we can't come back after a night like that.
