We spent three days and nights in September at this fifteen-room inn near the Museum of Contemporary Art, and we plan to return. The room was sweet and had everything one could need: comfy bed, terry cloth robes, hairdryer, and our own private balcony with a view of the ocean. Personnel were friendly and efficient, the three-course breakfast (included) was... More

We really enjoyed this beautiful little bed-and-breakfast retreat for our wedding anniversary. It is located in a quiet area of town, convenient to just about everything you need for a wonderful stay. There is only a 5 minute walk to the beautiful beach, with views of cliffs and resting sea lions. The Inn itself is quaint, clean, quiet, and inviting.... More

Excellent location-- on the edge of shops and restaurants, clear from traffic and noise, across the street from a public tennis club if that's your thing. Walk to everything, beautiful décor, awesome antiques, garden patio, 2nd floor patio overlooking ocean, breakfast comes with dessert! Staff is great too. This was a lucky find and we couldn't have asked for anything... More

The room was filthy with stains on the sheets. The bathroom was dirty with strong pee smell! When we asked the receptionist Carla to clean the room and the bathroom she said that the cleaning lady was gone for a day. We were not offered a better replacement. We asked to return our money with a hope to reserve another... More

Your concerns are totally understandable and have been dealt with and thank you for bringing it to our attention. The sheet and coverlets are washed after each guest vacates a guest room, and if staying longer than 3 days, the linens are automatically changed, or if a guest request a change of linen during their stay, we are happy to...

Stayed there for three nights over the weekend. My wife and I really were looking forward to this B&B after all the great reviews we had read. I'm not sure if we caught them on a bad weekend ( I don't think so) Here are the problems 1) VERY under staffed ( one person handling all the guests). 2) that... More

We are very concerned that your experience was so disappointing. No one on our staff is new and most have been there for 6 months to two years or more, so there is no excuse for the type of service you are describing. There is no "owner" ( it is a corporation ) and the on site manager is there... More

My wife and I stayed here for a few days in early August, 2016. Our room was perfect. Clean, comfortable and bright and airy. Quiet. Breakfasts were gourmet quality - very creative and delicious. (Mary is the chef and she's just wonderful.) Breakfast can be enjoyed in the nicely shaded atrium. This place is a short walk to the beach.... More

Accidentally booked the night before I was planning to stay. Showed up the next day and they very very graciously honored my reservation and special rate.! They were over the top accommodating.
