Absolutely LOVE this charming hotel. It has been a hotel since 1930 and has unique character, it is fun to walk around the property. EXCELLENT service by the staff here! These employees know hospitality and I am very appreciative of the great, friendly service. Check-in was quick and we were personally escorted to our room at the back of the hotel. We stayed in a standard room with one queen bed, a dresser, small closet, and very small bathroom. The room was small but exactly what we needed as we only were staying for 2 nights. This hotel is super clean, including the room. The bed was so comfortable it felt like I was sleeping in my own bed at home. We were in our room when housekeeping came o service the room so they did not make up our room, which is fine. But they did place a basket of fresh towels, toiletries and coffee for us, without even having to ask. The Mexican restaurant on-site is excellent. Try it! Parking was not an issue. We were able to park close by for a few hours to unload our bags and then re-parked in the neighborhood for free parking. Only one issue that was resolved the very next morning. Could not take a shower 1st night because only scalding hot water came out, no cold water from the faucet. However, we were given the option to move rooms but chose to wait for them to fix in the morning which they did by 7am. Great location, walkable to the beach. Can't wait to come back for a longer stay next summer! Thanks for the great service El Cordova!!

Traveled with family and small children
The location is great but the hotel is old and needs some repairs. Especially the bathtub. The restaurant is noisy and had music all day. People waited to be seat at restaurant right below our room and would block our exit and would walk up our stairs to take pictures. The staff is friendly enough but not too eager to help with requests. There was a roach in our bathroom. I would not stay here again.

The staff, the rooms and the location were perfect to get engaged. All the staff helped schedule and plan the best weeks vacation for the family. The hotel is smaller and more intimate with a outside patio and fire that is excellent for lounging after a day a the beach. Location is a five minute walk to the beach and all the restaurants that are in the village.

Great Stay but still no where to park?
Great Stay but surprised that you still have not corrected the parking issue which I also dealt with when I stayed there 10 years ago?

Lovely room but parking is not convenient. You either pay $40 a night or park further away from hotel
