We got a good deal $100/night thru hotels.com. I was nervous after reading some reviews and then once I got there, I thought it was charming, clean, antiques (really neat old rocking horse, camera, furniture).Very pretty property, decent view of ocean, dog friendly as I saw two people check in with dogs.
Our room did have ocean view, but no balcony, which would have been nice because we opened the window for fresh air and there was no screen, and window is lower than code, so slight safety hazard since we had a toddler and what if you have too much to drink? oops. And if you thought the people upstairs sounded like elephants, well that was probably my toddler jumping around, my bad. But then hey, some drunks came in next door at about 2 am, so it is what it is. yes, I suppose the walls are thin so we didn't sleep well, or that could have been because my toddler had her feet in my back all night because I didn't want to pay an extra $20 for a spare bed.
Continental Breakfast: was awesome. I think some people are snobs. Hello, so what if you have to make your own waffles? There were bagels and cream cheese, coffee, tea,cocoa, juice, oatmeal, hardboiled eggs, fresh fruit. If you went into a place in DT Mendo you'd prob pay $40 easy just for this. Good way to get your day started and save money.
Water pressure sucked, bed old, sliding door to bathroom was so heavy or maybe stuck I could barely open and close it.
An elderly couple that checked in before us was upset because they assumed there was an elevator, their room was on second floor, as is the continental breakfast, and her husband was disabled. The girl at reception told them it's been broken for a year, but the owner told staff not to change the website. I did see his overweight butt up there at breakfast the next morning though, so he figured it out, but I would say that if you are in a wheelchair, book elsewhere.
Service: Well the young girl at the desk was very sweet in a condescending way, prob from lack of real work experience, and having to deal with some real snobs often. Other than that, I really didn't see any staff other than the continental breakfast gal who was very gracious.
