Pros: The front desk staff were very welcoming and helpful. The location was in a nice neighborhood, close to restaurants and beach. Cons: the rooms are quite dated. Our room had very tired, stained carpet. Cleanliness was a bit questionable, there were stains on the wallpaper and a jug of old milk left in the refrigerator. If you have neighbors, noise is going to be an issue. The walls are paper thin. We moved rooms upon arrival because of this issue. There was a family next to us who were quite loud. The front desk was very accommodating and let us check in to a different room. However, we had neighbors above us and we could hear noises that were very uncomfortable when traveling with our teenage son… I would not stay here again.

I was happy with the location and the customer service at the Inn. Staff really friendly and nice. Rooms were a good size and the beds were comfortable. Free WiFi in rooms. Bad points are the walls are so thin you can hear everything next door and the carpet in the rooms need to be changed. Would I stay there again sorry to say No.

This place is an anomaly. The staff: Cameron, was fantastic, tried to address every concern. Pool and spa were great. Room was a little dated, some wallpaper wear and just generally tired. AC did not work well, but they provided fans and the cool nights helped a lot. We had a nice balcony but it was accessible by anyone, so interesting when you were sitting in room and a number of folks would be standing there looking in. pretty decent location.

Room was clean. Kind of small but bed was comfortable. Staff was super nice at check-in. People seemed to enjoy the heated pool. THE WALLS ARE PAPER THIN. We heard the people next door: blow their nose. One asked the other if they were getting a cold. Sneeze. Say god bless you. I was so thankful they turned their TV off at 9:30pm. It was quiet and I slept great. No one stirred until 7:30 which was fine. It worked out fine for us but it could be a nightmare if you’re next to loud people. Walking distance to State Street restaurants and shops. Walk to beach/pier. Eagle Inn is literally across the street. Not sure why anyone would pay so much more. This place was great.

Arrived 4 hours early, and our room was ready and they allowed us to check in. Room was clean, beautiful accommodations, and quiet. Traveled around California for 2 weeks and this was by far the best accommodations we had. Walk to beach, free parking, quiet neighborhood. Just perfect.

This is a small boutique like venue. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are fresh and clean and the bathrooms sparkling and updated. Plenty of fresh towels and toiletries. The lobby is friendly, with snacks (oranges, and oatmeal bars) and cookies later afternoon and early evening. Complementary coffee in the lobby at all times, also a maker in the room. They have a pool are, and a jacuzzi. The staff are helpful in finding restaurants, and even a car wash for me! This location in only once block of Cabrillo Blvd., the beach blvd. Many lovely restaurants and bakeries in walking distance. Fun, enjoyable, and safe. Oh, and free parking next to the rooms and off the street. It deserves 5 stars!!!

Close walking distance to the beach, pier and the funk zone. The walk to the Arlington Theater was around 35mins. Rooms are spacious and clean, bed was comfy. Great price for SB. Parking was free and insight. Free coffee and granola bars available in lobby. Staff very helpful and friendly.

Stopped for a night here driving down the coast and was very happy with quality of the room and grounds. The staff I talked with when I checked in was super helpful, with tips on getting my bearings to walk around town. Offerings in the morning were slim but hot coffee was available at 7 AM and there is a 7-Eleven a few blocks away for grabbing a doughnut. Very quick walk to the beach and food options all around.

We have stayed here before and keep going back because of the great location. It is in a quiet, residential area, and you can easily walk to everything. The rooms are nice and clean, and the service is always excellent.
