My husband and I stayed here for one night on a quick coastal getaway. We arrived a little early, but our room was ready within 5 minutes. It was a large room compared with a lot of other hotels - split level with a sitting area with a weird little sink when you first walk in the door, and up a couple of steps the bedroom area with a king-sized bed and big window overlooking the water in the distance. The room was spotless, and smelled strongly of fruity cleaner, but this faded after a while.
The bathroom was decently sized and very clean, although my husband complained about the water pressure - the shower head "misted" instead of pounding, which we prefer. :)
There was a little patio outside, but the weather was rainy, so we didn't spend any real amount of time out there. Plus, there are no walls (so they can advertise "180 degree water views") and it makes it kind of weird because you are right next to the neighbors on either side, on their porches. Right in front of the patios is the Ten Mile trail/ paved walkway, then the grass of the cliffs overlooking the ocean, and a ways off, the Pacific itself. It was great being able to lie on the bed and see the great view, but just a little annoying to have people walking by right there.
The location was great - right down the road from MacKerricher State Park with lots to do, like beaches with seals, overlooks, trails, camping and tide pools. It was close enough to the little "downtown", but far enough away to feel a little more secluded (although there are other condo/hotel places right next to it).
We ate at a local brewery on the edge of downtown which had delicious, if overpriced, hamburgers - the best I've had at a restaurant for a long time.
No breakfast provided at this hotel, which was disappointing, but they provide a list of local restaurants with a couple of breakfast places. We skipped those, however, and ate at Perko's on the way back to Hwy 20, which had tasty 'splatter-cakes'!
Overall, a good experience at a great location. Good value for the budget, too. We would return here again.
