We were driving down the 101 & just needed a good place to stay for the night. We were so glad to find this place. Because it was a Holiday Inn Express I knew it had to have some level of quality, but I was pleasantly surprised how nice it was. The price was very good, the staff was very friendly, the room was clean & comfortable and the breakfast "hit the spot".
We've stayed at pricier bed & breakfasts in the area and while we didn't get a chocolate on our pillows or some other cute amenities, the price and the quality of this hotel definitely makes it a recommended spot for us.
