I stayed here for one night and really loved the whole vibe of the place - offbeat, homey, decorated for Halloween and covered in fall leaves. The outdoor areas - the garden, the tables for the café, the porch swing, the chair next to my room - provided excellent places to just sit and take in this wonderful environment. The proximity of the coffeeshop -along with its tasty coffee and treats - added to my experience. On my travels, I covet cozy inns. El Mono fit this perfectly. Also loved the convenient parking right outside my room.
I took a room with a private bath, and was pleased to not run out of hot water while showering. Liked that the room had no TV. I might have felt the room was a bit on the small side had I stayed longer, and I did also miss the lack of refrigerator, but these are minor quibbles.
The people who checked me in and out and who worked at the café were all super nice. I'd definitely come back, and will if I ever travel back this way again.
