My husband and I stayed here for two nights recently with our 4-legged traveling companion (our Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Abby), and were very pleased with our decision to stay at this charming inn. It was just what we needed--a friendly, comfortable place that made us feel right at home.
We stayed in room 12 which is a spacious King Suite. Our accommodation consisted of a large living room with a fireplace, two-seater couch, armchair, coffee table, TV, coffee maker, and a wooden cabinet with a refrigerator inside it. The bedroom had a comfortable king-sized bed, plenty of closet space, and a small flat-screen TV. The bathroom was very large with a fabulous whirlpool tub, a separate glass-enclosed shower, ample counter space, and plenty of soft, fluffy towels. Overall the furnishings were tasteful and suited the country-type ambiance of the inn. Even though this place is very popular with people traveling with their dogs, you wouldn't know that dogs had stayed here. It's spotlessly clean and very well maintained.
The breakfasts were great and offered a wide variety of options, ranging from fresh fruit salad (strawberries, grapes, blueberries) and yogurts to pastries, bagels, muffins, oatmeal, cereals, and quiches. I also liked that they had Peet's Coffee--regular and decaf. You have the option of eating breakfast in the cozy breakfast room or on the patio, or taking a tray back to your room.
The inn is on a quiet street, about a 10 minute walk to the beach or a 5 minute walk to the center of town. There is off-street parking in a courtyard. Overall, we loved our stay here, and wouldn't hesitate to stay at this charming, dog-friendly inn again!
