The price was right, $65/night in Jan. Reserved online but there was a 10% tax added later. good size room for 2. There are NO fireplaces but this city won't allow using on anyway. It is actually an electric fake fireplace insert in the old fireplace. Tacky fake logs on fire and flames. The room was clean and comfortable but could use more, brighter lighting. Fridge, microwave, coffe maker are provided but they were all plugged into a power strip(illegal I think) and the heater was plugged into the same receptacle so the breaker tripped before coffe was done ! Don't run all that at the same time. The tv wall receptacle had no cover plate and when I disconnected the tv to plug in a computer there were sparks in the wall ! Hot water was available quickly but adjustment of the shower was funky. They ask you to conserve water (a shortage on the central coast) and the shower head did a good job of that but the flow screamed out of the bathtub faucet. Odd. There is a hot tub which is in a plain, minimal room but we had it to ourselves. This area is relatively quiet. There is a little traffic you can hear around 7:30 am but it wasn't bad. When the adjacent neighbor turned on the bath at 6:30 am or earlier, it was a rude awakening, very loud. There was a tv and the programming was typical garbage. Good internet speed. There was an annoying flashing light in the bathroom which is noticable when the lights are out. Just close the door. I think it works as a nightlight. No soda in the machine. The breakfast was orange, banana, V8, Kern's nectar, muffin, croissant and water. Don't burn the croissant in the microwave ! We brought our own Petes coffee and you will need to bring some flat bottom, small filters. Or you can drink their coffe which was tolerable. Bring half and half as they just provide powder. Scotch makes it more ennoyable. This is within walking distance to the stores and restaurants but it takes about 15-20 minutes. The brutal truth, it was cozy and clean and the price was so right.
