Our family stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in November. My husband and I and our 2 young adult children, 22 and 24, were doing a quick wine country visit and looking for a reasonably-priced suite-type room for the 4 of us.
The accommodation was a bit cramped and had an odd layout, but provided everything we needed. It had a good-sized refrigerator, microwave, oven and stovetop and basic dishware and cookware. The 2-bedroom suite is divided into an outer room with bunkbeds and bathroom and an inner room with king bed and kitchen. There is a patio onto a walkway, which has a small table and 4 chairs. Our daughter thought the bunk beds might have plastic liners over the mattress - she said it crinkled.
The hotel has an outdoor pool and hot tub, both of which were clean and the perfect temperature. The beach is a block away, and there is a nice walking path.
The breakfast included cereal, pastries, breads for toast, bagels, bananas, canned fruit and make-your-own waffles. Nothing special.
My biggest gripe is that the walls must be paper-thin. The first night was very quiet, but the second night there were more people booked in. The people above us didn't seem to ever go to sleep - they were up watching TV at 3 am. The place is LOUD.
Everything was clean and the bath towels were of good quality. The staff was friendly. It served our purpose, but I don't think I'd stay there again.
