I plan on returning and making this pleasant hotel a base for exploring. I was exhausted when I arrived. There was some confusion about my reservation; but luckily a room was ready. And, it was a charming space, clean with a wide open window to the sea air. A bit funky to look out onto a neighboring roof; but I was not there for the view. The stairs are steep with a suitcase. The bathrooms are down the hall (the sink in the room is a good feature; the towels were ample and the bathroom was as close as it is at home). But, it was definitely better than most chain hotel/motel experiences I've had. I slept soundly...no traffic noise; nothing particularly disturbing from the other guests. A good meal in the diner on the corner. A dandy doughnut from the next door shop as I headed to the MV Coho Ferry the next morning. Fun art to walk around and see.
