I'm sorry we stayed only one night. What a great room! Two adults and two just-barely teens, I booked a room with two king beds, a category I'd never seen anywhere before. The room was HUGE (which I didn't notice in the description), easily the size of two normal rooms. There was a sofa, coffee table, and a dining table for two.
The beds were among the comfiest I've ever had at a hotel.
Calling the room "bay view" is technically correct but not what I expected. One small window with a view of tidal mud flats (visible through a line of trees) across a driveway and some grassy land ... sure, I could see the bay but I wouldn't book this room to soak in beautiful bay views, if you know what I mean.
I was surprised by how small the bathroom was. I guess it was a normal bathroom, but since the hotel room was so massive it made the normal bathroom seem tiny in comparison. My only real complaint was the weather pressure in the shower. I dreaded having to rinse off because I knew it would take considerable time and effort.
The free breakfast is something we expect out of this brand. The automatic pancake maker was a cool surprise!
The free airport shuttle worked well, for what it is. I won't complain about the wait for it to arrive and then the wait for it to make multiple stops at other properties. It is a free shared ride, so waits and slight delays are part of that. It was clean, safe, and the driver was a very friendly professional.
I'd definitely stay here again.
