Sort of retro (could use some frills but lovely view of ocean, convenient parking and within walking distance of a few good restaurants. Very clean, friendly staff, comfortable beds. Rates reasonable for the area and the season.

Harbor View has no air conditioning.You are to open the windows and hear steady traffic and the harbor horn which sounds loudly, regularly all night.Not fun and not safe if you are on the first floor.

I don't get the reviews that this hotel is quiet. The road noise was so overbearing that it was impossible to sleep with the windows open, there was also a loud beeping noise coming from somewhere (12 seconds between beeps I counted them for hours). It is what is is, a last minute hotel because everything else was full. People... More

My family and I just stayed at this hotel last week and while it is in need of some work and isn't the cleanest hotel in the area we were pleased with the location and the price. Unfortunately, we were treated horribly by the manager Marina. After all the years of staying down at the coast I have never seen... More

This hotel is geared towards singles or people who can sleep together in a queen bed. They only have 2 rooms with 2 double beds and we were lucky enough to get one of them due to a cancellation. The room had everything we needed for a one night stay.

Step back into the charm of the 60's or 70's - where they still took credit card imprints and televisions had tubes and were heavy (though hooked up to Dish satellite with plenty of channels). Think classic and basic motel - park outside your room, and everything in the room is basic and cheap. Add to that a "not distant... More

Nice place with good local access. Tastefully furnished and clean! We would stay here again and recommend to others. A great value for the money. While close to everything this location was quiet and restful.

What a dump! See photos. Our "view" room overlooked a busy street with cars whizzing by only feet from our room window. For privacy, we had to keep the curtains closed most of the time. Window was broken so we had to sleep with window open all night. Telephone broken. Moldy wallpaper. Dirty shower tracks. Peeling mirror. And an old... More

I travel to the Bay Area once a month for business and the cost of hotels on the peninsula shot up considerably recently and in most cases you need to pay extra for parking and WIFI. I used to live in El Granada so I decided to stay in this area since I was familiar with the commute and liked... More

This place could really use a renovation. The rooms were very dated and unclean. The carpet smelled of mold and was heavily soiled. The furnishings had burn marks on them along with a layer of dust. The bedspread was thread bare with holes on the corner. The linens could have used an extra two cycles through the washing machine. The... More
