We have been wanting to stay here forever. Great staff, breakfast was yummy and our quart yard side room was surprisingly quite. The check in staff held our back until our room was ready. We also loved being so close to downtown. Will go back for sure.

Unique experience, cozy and intimate. Staff is amazing and enjoyed the free breakfast treats. They were able to hold our bags until our room was ready. This place is great for visiting on Thursday farmers night. We will be back for sure!

This was our first time at this hotel, and we were so impressed!! From outstanding customer service at the initial booking, to checking in and being greeted with a glass of Rosé.... In addition, the room was gorgeous (cozy fireplace) and very clean. The location is perfection with walking distance to bars and restaurants. I highly recommend eating at their restaurant. It has a very romantic ambiance and the food and drinks were delicious.

I was on a road trip up the coast and was going to just figure out where I would stay. Something about the town I liked...and Granada caught my eye. I booked 2 nights & after the first I extended my stay. My room was comfortable, had so many nice little things in it and I was psyched about the fireplace. Service of all the staff was on point from the time I stepped in to check in. Dinner was delicious along with drinks and dessert at the Bistro. A bonus was that there is free parking. Wins all around.. Did I mention that the location is great as well? Definitely my next visit I'll be staying there again.

Service at the hotel and bistro was superb. The fireplace and outdoor patio on the 2nd floor is a nice place to chill and relax OR meet fellow guests. A highlight of our stay was our FANTASTIC meal at the Bistro ...Gonna try the duck and the creme brulee! Everything we tried was unique and a labor of love by the chef for sure.
