Close to the beach and highway.Overall nice hotel. However, it is on Highway 1 and since there is not air conditioning, you will likely sleep with the patio door at least partly open so you can enjoy the sounds of zooming cars & trucks.

Great Stay at a Small, Chic HotelWe were very pleased with our room - the bathroom was large and updated. The only down side was that the weather was unseasonably warm for San Francisco, and since there is no AC in the rooms, the ceiling fan was our only respite. The staff, especially Ann and Enoc, were very helpful in recommendations ...

Great small hotelVery good location- very helpful staff- nice room- wine (surprisingly good quality) and appetizers every afternoon- fireplaces in the rooms- windows that open to let in San Francisco's ocean breeze. What is not to love about this place.

The BEST view ever. Very quiet area which made a very relaxing stay. Soft sheets. Spotless room. Polite front desk. I have stayed at many high end hotels in San Francisco which have been very expensive. This hotel was so reasonably priced that I was worried that it was going to be a real let down. ...

AMAZING!!!!Most beautiful relaxing place to stay. So comfortable and perfect in every aspect. Just a few feet away from the water so it's perfect to go during whale season and spot a few from the balcony. Will definitely be back. EVERYTHING inside the room was also very nice. So many accommodations that go ...
