The front desk people went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. There were 8 of us, with 3 rooms, and for the most part, we were all comfortable. Rooms were clean and adequate; one suggestion is to improve the lighting, as we couldn't keep the blinds open with people walking by our room frequently. (They have upgraded... More

I know I stay at a lot of expensive hotels these days, and had to laugh at myself that this was the lowest end hotel I had been in a long time...not terrible but a motel 6 vibe. It was July so the summer rate was $300.00 a night so not cheap in my book. It was clean though and... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend summer of 2014. We had problems with the booking - we were overcharged and weren't able to get the issue resolved.

Located up the hill from the main drag (Crescent), the Casa Mariquita was a quiet welcome to the noisy festivities of July Fourth. Only couple minute walk from the center of the action, the well appointed rooms, and the layout of the property offered privacy, quiet, and a great stay.
