The parking was free and the rooms located behind locked gates for security. there was a pool available and the grounds and rooms well maintained. If you have any mobility issues this may not be the...

Reviewed 12 January 2017

Someone like me who travels for about 2-3 months in a year, I find most the hotels of a certain standard give almost the same experience. And most the time difference between good and a great stay is the service that you get. This hotel/motel most definitely wins your heart with the service. Komal, the young, chirpy girl at the...

The rooms and the grounds were good - but what made our stay awesome was the staff. The gentleman who checked us in, the woman on staff when we left, and Frank the general manager were all so friendly and competent and really made sure we were comfortable and happy. Thank you!

Reviewed 21 December 2016

This inn was absolutely perfect, especially because of the innkeeper Frank (and his wife Linda). We traveled from LA to SB for an overnight and could not have been more welcome during our stay. The inn itself was a block from the ocean, it was clean, there was continental breakfast, you could rent bikes on site (10$ an hour or...

Lower your expectations and you will not be disappointed. The check in girl is positively delightful and the location is great. The room is a CA1960's apartment minus the green shag rug that had been replaced with indoor/outdoor carpeting. The breakfast pastries are very good and the rooms are spacious.

Truly the check-in, check-out and breakfast interactions with the owners here were beyond welcoming. We had one of the rooms with a gas fireplace, and it was very cozy and much appreciated in late November. Breakfast has quite a large variety of foods - boiled eggs, yogurt, cereal and milk, pastries, bagels, etc. A block from the beach, and a...

The hotel was very nice, clean the bed was nice and towels and sheets white. The breakfast was good, you sit outside to eat so if busy you could wait for a table, but worth the wait. Not many places to get something to eat unless you got into the car.
