This was one of the best hotel stays I've ever had. It's the combination of the unique atmosphere - B&B . . . meets value hotel . . . meets boutique hotel - and the impressive staff (one friendlier and more professional than the next). The rooms are clean, contemporary. It's like they really, really try hard to make it easy and pleasurable for guests - all kinds of little touches that impress you. It was so uncorporate - such a refreshing break from the standard chains I stay in for work travel. We love dogs, so to have staff's dogs sometimes there for a visit behind the front desk was a real treat for the kids. Very good value with b'fast, parking, shuttle, internet all included. The casual restaurant on property is really good too - better than expected. Only thing that could have improved our stay was room configuration. As a family of 4, we wish their suites (we had King suite) had a door between rooms (any light in the "parent" room shone into the kids' room, not as much privacy as we'd have liked). Definitely take the shuttle to the beach rather than walk - the nearby proximity beach is not as nice as the one a bit further. If you have a car, drive 10 minutes to Encinitas beach - it's even nicer.
