Reading some of the reviews for this, it seems odd that people select individual style accommodation then bemoan that it isn't ‘cookie cutter.’
We chose it because we didn’t want the impersonal style of a chain hotel at Christmas. We wanted homely, and homely is exactly what we got.
This inn really scores for location. Easily reached from the Interstate exit, it’s in a quiet area of downtown and has free parking at the side. It’s in easy walking distance of the Pier, the Dali museum and loads of mid-range dinner options along Beach Drive.
While our room was smallish, it wasn’t cramped and we were comfortable. It was good to be on the ground floor with a street view. The simple breakfast in the lounge/desk area was sociable and adequate enough for our needs. Wi-fi was fast and I appreciated having an efficient hairdryer for a change.
It was nice to come back on Christmas Eve to a gift bag of sweets in the room. We also really liked the ‘happy hour’ of beer, wine and nibbles every evening, a nice hospitable extra on the part of the innkeepers. As we enjoyed these on Christmas Eve a couple actually came to the door hoping to check in only to be told there was 'no room at the inn!' The big Christmas tree and decorations added to a homely, family feel, as did the quirky furnishings along the hallway to the guestrooms. These were fun.
