What a great little hotel! Little confusion on check in but soon remedied. We found this to be a convenient stop off for 4 nights after driving from San Diego before heading up to San Francisco. Free Parking was a bonus having already been stung in LA and San Diego. Rooms are clean and tidy - nothing flash but very serviceable. We had ground floor rooms with patio doors that opened straight out to the swimming pool area. The only problem was that the hotel is open to the cliff above the beach and we had a 20 month child who made a beeline every time we opened the doors. If you have young children - may be ask for a 2nd floor but then you have the worry of a balcony. Anyway, extra caution and being on guard was a small inconvenience for magnificent views of the ocean, whales, dolphins, pelicans etc.
Breakfast (bagels, mini muffins, coffee etc) was served in a small room and this was adequate for us. There is a restaurant next door for lunch / dinner called Steamers and we had dinner here twice in our 4 night stay as it was so good. Views of the sun set over the ocean as you dine. Very friendly with children. Would definitely stay here again.
