You can't beat the location of this property! Parking is an offsite lot. Not far, but you'd want to unload before you go park. There is valet parking, but it fills up quickly. Hotel is very cute and very clean. However, rooms are extremely small. Even with two double beds (we had two kids with us) it was way too small. Better for a couple not spending a lot of time in the room.

The location of this hotel is great! You are able to walk to shops, restaurants and other activities. Only down side is parking is off site unless you valet and the shower configuration is awful. The entire bathroom floor gets wet when you shower.

Disliked: Room comfort
Tiny smoke box
The redeeming quality of the tiny room was the patio and location. The location will not disappoint if you can stand sleeping in a noisy room filled with cannabis smoke from neighboring patios. It made my patio unusable the majority of the stay. You can hear noise from doors slamming, voices and luggage in the hallway. I could hear the unit next door as if we were in the same room from their patio and open bath window. The room is unusually small and feels like an RV. Particularly the bathroom which had an RV-like sink and shower, no counter space. When you open the door you walk into the giant bed. I had an accessible room and would absolutely not recommend it to anyone with mobility issues. In a wheelchair you’d barely have space to move from the bed to the tiny bathroom, with no access to the patio.

Great location close to the train station and the Beach! Try the coffee place across the street: Goat Tree. Parking is a super challenge…
