We are sorry you did not have a good experience. In the future if you decide to stay with us again, we will be more than happy to see if there are any other rooms available. We also would like you to know we are doing a full renovation at the end of 2018 and hope you will be back after the renovations.

Day-cation

Posted Jul 7, 2017
Pros: Our biggest problem with hotels is always the beds, to hard, not comfortable, can't sleep. I'm not sure what kind were here but they were great.
Cons: Coffee available before 7am would be nice..
Location: Although we drive in, we were able to walk to most anything we wanted. It was nice to experience "beach livin"
Quick trip to get away with my wife for a day. Cardiff was the best location for a trip to the Botanical gardens and the Chart House for dinner with a pleasant walk back to our room in the evening. A quick cup of coffee on the roof and off to bed for a quiet night's sleep.

Unique and quaint hotel with ample parking free

Posted Jun 23, 2017 on Hotels
Cool little hotel with unique rooms. Has a little age and wear on it but it was quiet and clean with a great roof top fire pit that guests meet up at in the evening. Local dive bars but limited restaurants - basically only pizza and Italian food and sushi within walking distance. Glad they had free parking under the hotel - big plus.

Our favorite place to stay when we are visiting family in the area. Outstanding location with coffee shops and restaurants within walking distance. Rooms are currently being renovated one by one so it will be even better for our next visit!

Old hotel a little run down but great charm and location, friendly staff would definitely stay there again. Need to update but keep the beachy charm along with the uniqueness of each room being different.

Location location location

Pros: Location, size of rooms, comfort of bed, sink located outside of toilet/shower area, refrigerator in room, ROOFTOP terrace with fireplace and view.
Cons: Rooms could be updated. Our room had a floral bedspread and dated wallpaper. I like white linens.
Location: Lots of great restaurants, coffee, shopping nearby, all within walking distance. The beach was right across the street
We loved the location of this hotel and the easy and free parking. There were many great restaurants and grocery stores nearby, and the ocean was just about right across the street. Although the rooms were dated, they were large with comfortable beds and nice views. Best of all was the rooftop terrace with fire pit that had an amazing view of the ocean. We brought food and wine from the nearby market and had a wonderful time by the fire, gazing at the ocean and enjoying our friends.

Hotel needs a renovation. Yes the hotel is close to beach but our room had no view at all and the window could not even be opened. Not the cute and cozy space we thought we'd be getting. Very disappointing.
