Great location with a friendly staff Very nice hotel with a very friendly staff. We enjoyed being in that part of San Francisco. The rooms are small and our room did not have a view. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The lobby is small but very comfortable.

Check-in was easy and we were escorted via golf cart to our room. We'd requested an ocean-front room and it was lovely. Right on the beach, overlooking the surf ...
