We had the pleasure of staying at this lovely hotel only for a night. My wife and I were travelling down the coast of California and arrived at the registration desk late afternoon and was greeted by a very friendly and gracious clerk named Davina. She offered us a room at a reduced rate and even lowered the rate even more when we told her we were on holiday and it happened to be my wife's birthday. The room was lovely although we were initially put off by having to share bathroom facilities with other guests. However there were four bathrooms each with a shower and they were all spotless. Hotel staff routinely made sure the bathrooms and showers were clean and they did a great job. We experienced no problems utilizing the facilities.
We then had a lovely meal in the hotel restaurant. We did have to wait sometimne before we had service and we were considering leaving as we were very hungry. However without saying a word a waitress approched us and offered us a heartfelt apology explaining there was a mix up in seating ans she was not aware
someone was at her table. Her apology was sincere and we had no further problems. The food was wonderful. At the end of the meal the waitress brought out a beautifully decorated desert for my wife with Happy Birthday written in chocolate and a delicious cheesecake with raspberries. The hotel did not charge for this. Another server with a beautifal voice sang happy birthday to my wife who said it was her best birthday ever.
Adjacent to our room there was a crew filming a movie so we got to have a real California experience. The crew let my wife videotape all of the goings on. After they left the hotel became very quiet and we had a very restful night. In the morning we were able to cross the street and acces a trail along the Pacific. The scenery was breath taking.
I would certainly recommend this wonderful hotel to anyone travelling along the coast. Just ask for Davina and she will take good care of you as will all of the other staff.
