The location is unbeatable! The shower was good and there are microwaves accessable in the vending area of each floor. It ended up being my wide and my favorite hotel of the 8 we stoped at on our tour of the pacific coast highway.

We love coming here and do each chance we get. We can't afford it in the summer (price triples) but we try to come during the off season! Super friendly staff and each room has a beautiful view. We love walking to the Warf to eat and shop etc.
