We stayed here last October. Sadly, it was a very foggy week. :(
The room itself is gorgeous. Very spacious (even the bathroom!), warm, with sliding glass door and huge windows ~ letting the Bay views in.
We're more of a B&B type of travelers, but we appreciate beautiful Inns like the Mavericks. The room rate did not include breakfast, in fact, there is no restaurant whatsoever ~ just rooms in 2 stories building. However, they provide you a 'welcome basket' ~ filled with fruits and snacks. There was even a bottle of red wine waiting for us when we got there (and we didn't reserve any packages with wine!). A nice surprise and sweet gesture, indeed.
We brought earplugs, in preparation for the smog horn. But the sound still sipped through. I guess if you're a light sleeper, you may want to consider this more. To some people, the horn sounds like a lullaby while to others, it may keep you awake all night long!
