We just came from a weekend getaway at the San Benito House on a groupon special. My husband and I had trouble booking a weekend to use the groupon before it expired, so we ended up downgrading to a room without a bath (it was that or lose the deal I'd already purchased).
While we had a blast, I would definitely hesitate to recommend this hotel to just anyone. It is LOUD. Unless you plan to be right in the middle of the raucous action downstairs in the bar (as we were), you're going to be quite miserable with the level of noise. As another reviewer mentioned, it's a pub with rooms. We enjoyed ourselves in that situation, but we went there with the intention of joining the party.
We were in room 6 which is one furthest from the bar, but it was still really loud late into the evening. The room was also pretty tiny, with not much room to maneuver around. The bathroom down the hall for those rooms without is clean and separated into two rooms (toilet and shower). There are only 3 rooms of 12 that share the bath in the hall, which isn't bad. You can also run downstairs to use the bar bathrooms if need be. The shower was comfortable with good water pressure and plenty of hot water, clean.
All in all, we had a good time staying here and being right upstairs from the party. Plan a visit with the caveat that you are heading for a boisterous place!
