Great location for San Francisco Room facing the street. Fairly noisy but you got used to it. Part of the "City" vibe. Evening cookies were great. Wine, cheese, nuts etc was very nice. Morning breakfast was good. Old building but very comfortable. Would consider staying there again. Cable car just one half block away.

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 ...

Great hotel, on the beach! My husband and I stayed here for one night and loved it. Upon check-in, we were greeted with a warm welcome, cheese and crackers, and wine. 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 ...

Very nice hotel overlooking the ocean Very nice hotel, overlooking the ocean. Your view is of an enclosed harbor and jetty, with the wild open ocean slightly to the left of the hotel. There's a walking/running pathway between most hotel rooms and the beach, but it's way below your room so you don't have people waking right in front of ...
