I read all the (great) reviews of this hotel and decided to stay here. We were incredibly disappointed. Our room absolutely was NOT renovated; fireplace was very odd; bathroom light/fan was so noisy that I woke my husband up in the middle of the night when I put it on; and I had trouble locking the windows. More important, I had called the hotel before booking and asked specifically if they had an elevator since we were carrying such large, heavy luggage and really didn't want to hassle with a bunch of stairs. I was told there was an elevator and decided to book there, but when we were shown our room it certainly did NOT have an elevator. Food was OK in the restaurant; service is good; location on the beach is lovely and we did see a wonderful sunset although that was not best western's creation. We did stop at Nepenthe Restaurant on the way to San Francisco afterwards. Wow! the food, store, service & view there all were 5 stars. Don't miss that opportunity but get there when it opens.
