Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Like - friendly staff at check-in, nice fruit, coffee, wine, etc., reasonably priced, no extra fees, garden space is pleasant but small, fairly close to harbor, kitchenette in room, grounds are clean, interiors seemed relatively recently remodeled. Didn't like - couldn't make room dark, had an ADA room - no bathroom cabinets, very small shelf -nowhere to put things, property is hemmed in by parking lot, busy street and apartments, noise from room above.

We stayed for one night. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The room had a kitchen that was nice sized. The beds were one of the best I’ve ever slept on. Good location from the freeway and very accessible to the harbor.

The courtyard reminded me of hawaii, very lush and green. We stayed in a remodeled room, very nicely done. Kitchen was great, Didn't like the rooms that opened onto the parking lot. We preferred the courtyard rooms. The front desk staff was amazing. Very helpful, went above and beyond trying to please us, changed our rooms, showed us in person our choices. They were great !
