My wife and I stayed on a Sunday through Tuesday so the price was reasonable, especially with the AAA discount. I asked for a quiet room off the street and we were delighted when we saw room 7, a cozy, corner queen suite rather than a studio as described by the hotel. It was so comfy we could have stayed there for weeks.
The staff, particularly the owner Karen, were wonderful, the smell of baking banana bread delicious and the free DVD selection thoughtful. They were very accomodating regarding arrival and checkout times, even letting us use their bikes after we had checked out.
My only complaint was with some of the other guests, loudly Skype-ing to their children in another language for quite some time. Please people, close your windows when you Skype!
