This hotel was definitely a gem in the city. It was easy to find on Pacific highway, with beautifully maintained flowers and plants all around the premise.We got upgraded from our sofa room to a one bedroom. We loved the room, the sofa, the nice little bedroom the kitchenette and the dining area. TVs were out-of-sight in wooden closets unless...

Not a chain hotel, but great individual service, care and detail is part of this smaller hotel's charm. Very good pricing for this hotel. It does deserve a 5 star rating, even if small and without an onsite restaurant. Well kept rooms and hotel property. Beautiful landscaping, nice clean pool and areas, clean rooms, nice furniture, good bedding, soft pillows....

We discovered this independently owned inn over 20 years ago, and the place just keeps getting better. Agreed, the actual location is a bit odd for a motel, but the proximity to Old Town and the Trolly (5 minute walk) more than make up for it. We often eat in Old Town and have never felt threatened walking back to...
