The staff is genuinely friendly and made us feel very welcome. There is great attention to detail. The room was very clean and well maintained. There is a well stocked mini market and gas station on the property. The free continental breakfast went beyond the continental breakfast that other hotels serve and was restocked right up until the 9:30 ending... More

The desk clerk personally went out and checked the room to see if it was available. We were shown the breakfast area and given... More

My girlfriend and I booked a room here on the fly while road tripping up the coast. We were very pleased with the clean and comfortable, and spacious rooms for the price. A step above other similarly priced places we had been to along the coast. The manager on duty was very kind. Gave us home baked chocolate chip cookies,... More

Although my kids were a bit loud an obnoxious, the owners didn't make us feel uncomfortable and also provided food the next morning, which my kids couldn't get enough of! Also enjoyed the television channels provided on the flat... More
