I booked this hotel based on the great reviews on trip advisor. My family of four, two adults and two girls ages 12 and 15, had a one night stay at this hotel on a three week road trip. This is the one hotel I was really looking forward to staying at. The hotel itself did not disappoint me. It is conveniently located just off of the PCHighway. It is an old building and the owners have tried very hard to keep the feel of an old hotel with the style of furniture and decor. They have done a great job. The lobby is a lovely, large space with plenty of sitting space. Here you will find a variety of books and games for guests to use. I enjoyed the large variety of historical photos on the walls. We had two adjoining rooms, one with a queen size bed and one with a double bed. In between these rooms was a bathroom that had an antique, claw foot bath tub. The rooms were very clean and decorated very lovely. The beds were comfortable and overall we had a very enjoyable stay. The floors creaked a bit as did the doors and I loved all of this. This gave the hotel a very cozy, family atmosphere and we met many nice people from all over North America. Included in your room price is an absolutely fantastic, made-to-order breakfast. What a great way to start your day! So here's the not so nice part of my review. The dinner. We booked the dinner, again based on the great trip advisor reviews. We sat at long, family style tables and this was a great opportunity to meet and chat with some of the other guests. The food, however, disappointed us. We were served many different appetizers, which were all very good yet the servings were so small. Everyone at the table was shocked at the tiny portions. The main meal was wild rice and seared tuna. One of my daughter's appetizers contained some long, black hairs. (She's a blond) The waiter took it away without a comment and neglected to bring her a fresh appetizer or an apology of any sort. My kids are not chicken strips and fries eaters. They have always been very adventurous in what they eat. Three out of four of my family members would not eat the seared tuna. It was very good and tasty for the other members of the table. When I booked the dinner a few nights before our stay, the hotel was unable to tell me what the menu would look like for that night. I took a chance and it bombed. It was very, very expensive. I had chosen to eat dinner at the hotel out of convenience because after an eight hour drive, I did not want to check into the hotel and then procede back out again to hunt for dinner. So, I give this hotel a five star rating as a hotel and a one star rating for the dinner. That black hair in the food really turned me off. Oh, and the head chef, has dark black hair.
