“Inexpensive, comfortable, clean.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

It's not a new property, it's not a fancy property, but the room is large, the room is clean, the bed is good, and the fixtures all work. For value it's an A+.

No complaints, would stay there again.

Smells like old people, and definately hasn't been renovated since 1965, but you can't beat it for the money! Only a couple blocks away from the main streets. Very helpful staff, quiet, and an overall pleasent stay! Not a luxury suite, but a nice comfortable room for a family on a budget!

Room Tip: Upstairs balconys give a slight view of the bay.

I would recommend staying at this place. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, within walking distance of Embarcadero Street where there is shopping and restraunts. You can see the ocean and hear the seals. I will most definitely stay there again.

Bring air freshener with you if you stay here. The room over the office reeks of Curry. After going and purchasing air freshener and leaving the sliding doors open all day helped a little bit. The room king with balcony was a comfortable room big, & high ceilings and the bathroom also was large large enough that you can turn around with out bouncing off the walls. Sliding glass doors needed to be cleaned. You will need to ask for more towels they are tight on the towels. Great locations, plenty of parking, manicured landscape. The mattress laying up against one of the rooms door was tacky. Overall stay was OK if you don't mind Curry scent in your room. After one night there, woke up with scratchy throat and tasting Curry, burning eyes and nose.... UGH !!!

Clean, comfortable, spacious rooms. My family of 7 stayed for one week, in 2 rooms. Plenty of space for the grandbabies porta-cribs. Very reasonable rates and the location was great. The owner/managers were very nice and helpful with directions. The only complaint I would have was a young couple that stayed next door... very loud at 4 a.m. when they were packing up to leave. Walls were a little thin. Would certainly stay there again. Rates were great!

Room Tip: Room 211 upstairs was huge and very comfortable.

This was a pleasant surprise. Good sized, clean room. Had a nice little table & balcony. They also have WiFi, however it was a bit slow. Could have been my ipod.
I would stay there again. Front desk was pleasant & helpful.

My fiance and I stayed here in October 2011. The first night was $45 + tax, including a AAA Discount. The room was very, very nice. We were both pleasantly surprised. We had an upstairs room, which had a balcony with a sliding glass door and screen door. It had high ceilings, a nice, large, comfortable bed with 3 pillows + 1 extra, a table and chairs, and a nice hanging lamp over the table. The lighting is very nice, and the room was very clean. It has a shower (no bathtub), a coffee maker, mini fridge, and microwave in room, and an electric fireplace which was really cute, but we did not use because it was very hot. It was very quiet there and we slept good.

Room Tip: The upstairs room had a balcony. It does get pretty hot though.
