We attended a wedding in S.B. end of July 2012 and expected rooms to be average and service the same especially during the busy summer months. A pleasant surprise awaited us at this hotel. The manager Brian was right on the spot with forgotten toiletries such as deoderant, toothpaste etc., with no charge. Our accomodations had 2 queen size beds with excellent very comfortable mattresses and the bed linens were fresh looking, modern and up to date. The room was fresh and clean smelling. There was a desk in the room with equipped for high speed internet access, Room amenities were basic Best Western type, neither sparse nor luxurious which could be improved upon. There was a complimentary continental breakfast every morning with juices, coffee, tea, fresh fruit, bagels, cereals, yougurts, along with some hot items. Ambience - although it was "beach front" there was a street and a small park before you got to the water. The view was great from our 2nd floor room; the windows opened bringing in the fresh sea air which was a plus. I dislike rooms that have windows you can't open. The hotel has a pool in middle of courtyard that looked like an average small hotel pool. Linens were changed every day, if needed. Service in all areas of this hotel was pleasant and prompt and always with a welcoming smile and "can we do anything for you?". Priceless. The prices for the rooms were in the low $200.00 and along with tax and occupancy fees, resulted in approximately $260. a night. Overall I was very pleased with everything at the hotel. I would like to have had a better selection of toiletries, the basics were there. Checkout was quick and hassle free. Again, the manager, Brian, did an outstanding job of letting us know that our business was appreciated and bid us a fond adieu until next time.
