Super-friendly staff who gave us great suggestions for where to go. The rooms were clean and had comfortable beds. The property is in a great location with easy freeway access and close to the beach and shopping. Only downside was our room was next to the pool, which created extra noise. We will definitely stay here again if we are...

Super friendly staff. We got here early and just asked if we could park the car until we could check in at 3. The front desk person said yes but let's see if your room was ready. We were checked in in less then five minutes. He told us about the hotel and said to be back for fresh baked...

Great Escape for us. Enjoyed the Room, Service and Cleanliness of the entire facility. We will Be Back! Close to Beach and Restaurants. Makes for a Great Walk to near by shops and "things to do". We highly recommend!

We thought this place was fab. Though the rooms were a little dated, but they were very clean and all the things worked - TVs fridge, shower etc. Could do with open windows in all rooms for fresh air. Pool lovely but lack of sun bathing space on sunny side. Didn't do breakfast

Stayed only one night. The location is practical, the staff were great but the rooms very dated and the bed not particularly comfortable. Certainly not a bad stay but for the price I would have expected better rooms

Friendly and courteous staff at this lovely little inn. Nice decor and surroundings. Breakfast could be a little more accommodating but it is adequate. Small area around the pool for relaxing but serves its purpose.

I've stayed here 4 times and each time the service and room condition are excellent. Very quiet location and one block from the beach to take beautiful walks. Room decor is clean and up to date. Front staff are friendly and front office is very nice. Very nice buffet choices for breakfast are served. I will continue to come here...

Just spent a wonderful weekend at this lovely, quiet hotel just up from the beach and marina. We had the standard suite which slept 4 comfortably. Lots of room and a perfect little kitchen with everything I needed to make our meals. The kids loved the pool and jacuzzi and I loved the convenience of being close to everything. Giving...

The Franciscan Inn is a very special place. One block from the beach makes this a very impressive location. Excellent service and hospitality is abound. Upon arrival you are received warmly as a guest. Very quickly you become a friend. I cannot think of a nicer place for families or an romantic destination. Come as a guest...leave as a friend....

we loved every minute being there--everything was spotless from the room to the jacuzzi :) The front desk helped us with our bags to the second floor, the continental breakfast person gave us hints for lunch!

“All rooms are quiet as it is not on a busy street. Our suite near the fountain was especially quiet.”

“OOOPs only negative.....heater/fan was not working in the bath room. Our room was upstairs...two queen beds...comfy and quiet.”

“Bedroom in suites has a VERY inconvient dresser. I can't see in the top drawer or on the top, which limits space to put personal items. Also bathroom could use a place to put clothing,etc. when taking a shower. This has just been a problem the last few years, but it sure is an inconvience.”

“The right faucet in the bathroom sink needs replacement. It can accidentally waste a lot of fresh cold water. Your facilities technician tried to fix it with an adjustment but the fix didn't work.”
