This hotel was a little bit worn the last time we stayed here. The carpets were tired and the breakfast area is small and cramped. There is no elevator, so if you stay in a second floor room you have to use the stairs, which is difficult for some of us.

The management of this hotel sends you an email saying thank you for staying with them and asking you to fill out a survey. I did the survey and the things I listed above, and more, were scheduled to be taken care of in an upcoming renovation (and from the sounds of some of the reviews, it sounds like the renovation may have started by now.)

The rooms are large and the beds are comfortable. There is no freeway noise even though US highway 101 is only three or four stones throws to the west. They have an indoor pool, a laundry area and an exercise room as well. Even when the hotel is near capacity the parking lot hasn’t been full.

There are fast food places and family restaurants within walking distance, including Round Table Pizza.

The second to the last time we stayed here my wife had the misfortune to catch an extremely nasty stomach virus. I couldn’t sleep, so I went for a walk in the halls and attracted the attention of the person at the front desk who asked if he could help me with anything. I explained my problem and asked for directions to a store to get her some medicine. He told me about the Ray’s Food Place grocery store in the adjacent shopping center and told me I had an hour before they closed. He also got out a map and highlighted the route to an all night pharmacy (and the hospital, just in case.) We had several opportunities during the night to carry on conversations, and he seemed genuinely concerned over my wife’s illness and reassured me that the hotel would have a room available for us if my wife was too ill to travel home the next day. To say this man was helpful is an understatement!

The last time we stayed here was June, 2012. We had been camping for a week at Patrick’s Point State Park and the weather forecast was for occasional rain in two days, so we decided that we had “roughed it” long enough and made reservations here for the rainy day. The rain came early and stayed late and we were very pleased to be in such a comfortable environment! You couldn't find a more helpful staff and I think you will enjoy staying here.
