Very well done. These guys get a lot of big compliments, and they deserve them. On a budget? Read that menu carefully, there are options.

When I walked into the Crown Room, I was immediately transported back in time. To what felt like the era of the "Great Gatsby". The majesty of this room is breathtaking. This I thought, was how (royalty, celebrities, and the wealthy), dined and were entertained in their "Hay Day". Sunday Brunch in the Crown Room is set up elegantly. From... More

Over 100 years old, beautifully preserved and protected hotel worth a visit just to see it, but also a delightful place to eat, to shop, to sightsee, with a magnificent beach, a pool, gardens. Impossible to match anywhere.

I have traveled all over the world and this has to be the best brunch I've ever been to in my life. Every breakfast food imaginable, the freshest fruit and a beautiful view. I didn't have any expectations but was overwhelmed by the food, the display and the service.

The motel and restaurant are living on days past. Current conditions are suffering with trash and poor maintenance on grounds. We were extremely disappointed with the restaurant. The food is priced double or triple what you would expect to pay even at a 5 star restaurant. A shrimp cocktail with 4 large shrimp was $24, a ceasar salad was $28,... More

Probably used to be much better: it HAD to have been, to accumulate such a good reputation. But now it's just over-priced, pretentious and the food is pretty average. I've been trying it out every five years or so since I moved to San Diego in 1977, and I've never had a really good experience here. Good enough ... sometimes;... More
