We stayed mid-week and chose this particular hotel for the accomodations they had for divers. We payed a little extra for the upgraded rooms with airconditioners. The hotel is very clean and the room was very nicely appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable, and I am a hard person to please that way. The room style reminded me of a cottage in the country until you looked out your window at the magnificent mountain view, felt the cool ocean breeze coming in through the window, and realized this is as close to a Hawaii experience as Californians can get. We really did not need the airconditioner because the sea breeze was always going. For some guests the stairs may be challenging as the hotel is multi-level and has no elevators. For divers, they had a rinse-off shower in the back and they stored all of our wet gear for us with speedy service. It is extremely close to Crescent Avenue and for the price, there is no need to pay so much extra at other hotels just to be on the main drag.
