We were looking for a quite place to stay after driving up the coast and booked this hotel. We pulled into the driveway and found a nice parking spot from the selection of slightly tight spaces. The gentleman at the check-in was cheerful and had us checked in in short time. 4 of us stayed in room #1 right next... More

We stayed in a suite in the original building. Lots of space, quaint, and historic, but also a bit musty and with dim lighting. Bathroom is dated as was the mattress. Breakfast is very ordinary, and in fact we skipped it the second day of our stay opting to pay for something better. On the other hand location to historic... More

Big and comfortable bed. Clean room and with everything someone need to relax, specially at night. The hotel location is very good, a few steps of walking attractions. Me and friends really enjoyed staying there. Unfortunately at night no one in the front desk to help guesses, even, to call a cab.

We stayed here for 4 nights. Check in can be tricky as parking is difficult. There is one spot at the front to wait whilst you check in. Once checked in, you can park round the back of the hotel, it's very tight, but we always found a space. Rooms are good. Large bed, very comfortable. Bathroom is ok, sink... More

Perfect location for walking to the wharf and downtown, but that's where the positives end. The inn is in need of updating. The bed squeaked with every little movement. There is no AC, just a fan that you can pull out of the closet. The road noise gets a bit loud. Not my favorite stop.

We stayed here for two nights at the second floor rooms. Room was clean and had all the things you could possibly need. Hairdryer and a fridge is the most important things to me, and they were both present. The parking is free and right under our room. The location is perfect for going to the harbour and the Fishermans... More

Nice B&B with spacious rooms/suites. Lovely courtyards and convenient location to many of the nearby attractions. Breakfast was included and was continental but ample. Coffee service in room was nice as well as the complimentary bathrobes.

Good hotel with clean, spacious rooms, free parking and a simple but good quality continental breakfast of cereals, bagels, croissants, fruit, jams and pre-boiled eggs. The hotel is close to a number of restaurants, the wharf and downtown. Cannery Row is a manageable walk away. Check in was straight forward and friendly. We found the parking to be ample for...

Place is more like a small hotel (about 25 rooms) than your typical Bed and Breakfast. Room was clean and spacious, but a little dated looking. It felt like the 1970's or 1980's. Possible that a room in the "old house" part of the complex might have more charm, but unsure. Breakfast was "continental" with a wide variety of breads,... More

We liked this place. We had a room on the second floor. It has a nice fireplace and high ceilings. Plenty of space. The bathroom was fine too. Everything was very clean. Parking was ok (with a Jeep Compass), though I can imagine that with a bigger car this might be more of a challenge. Location is very good; wharf... More
