It was ok, nothing special, a little tired but clean and in a good location. Lots of parking and in walking distance to the town. The breakfast was a take away breakfast but we knew that when we book, there was a good choice considering this, with tea/coffee toast, porridge, yogurt, and a few other bits to choose from. It...

We stayed one night as we were going on a fishing trip the next day. Small room but very clean, large bathroom. Has small microwave and refrigerator. Bed very comfortable but had only the sheet and light bedspread. I felt cold during the night and there was not an extra blanket anywhere. I wish they had an extra blanket for...

Lovely new room, very clean and lots of space. They are part of the Wyndham hotels group, they all have nice decoration and all you need in the room, including coffee! The breakfast was better than a lot of other motels that we have been in our trip through California.

We stayed here three nights and we were very satisfied. Compared to other lodging in the area, this is really a bargain. The staff was very nice and the room was adequate with an excellent bed !! The room was clean and the location was good. We would stay here again.

Stayed a couple of nights leading towards New Year 2017; rooms are basic but comfortable. Bed firm; open fire; coffee machine available in room. The continental breakfast was sufficient (cereal; toast; pastries; tea/coffee) but only placing for 4 people a tad strange.

We only stayed for one night but the room was very clean and comfortable. Had we have been in the area for longer we would have definitely stayed here. It was only a short walk to the shops and marina. In a lovely area and plenty of parking. Breakfast was included and the staff friendly.
