We stayed here for three nights. We wouldn't stay again simply because we weren't very impressed. It's a good hotel but not what you hope for when driving 15 hours on a vacation you've saved for a year to go on. We stayed here because we has a ten year old and a 13 year old and it looked like a great place for children with the advertised mini- golf. We were only given one round of mini golf during our three day stay which the kids were pretty disappointed about. My husband and I were terribly disappointed to be placed on the second floor of the middle building where our view if this beautiful place was the walls if the building across from us. We felt felt suffocated the entire stay. My husband laughed ate in the mornings standing in the toilet seat trying to peer out the tiny bathroom to see what the weather was like each day. I really can't explain our disappointment. The great thing about this room was that it was clean and overall that was our biggest concern staying in many different places throughout our trip on the northern coast. The continental breakfast was basically Danishes, the exact same ones every day, cold cereal, or oatmeal. It was okay but we usually ended up finding breakfast elsewhere. Overall we all felt very disappointed and tried to spend the majority of our stay away from the room. There is no view at all of the ocean, simply the main road busy with cars. There is a very short 30 second drive or short walk to a great view of the ocean however. I think it's called the Pomo bluffs. We loved walking along here in the evening and there were deer everywhere. This view is great! Next time we will find a room where we can see out. The staff here is friendly but somewhat snobby. Not the kind we felt we could discuss our disappointment with. :(
