This reminded me of bnbs from the east coast. It was quaint, not loud, and overall clean. The bathroom was a nice size..
Cons: A/C did not cool the room. Called the FD to ask them to have maintenance take a look, which they did, within 5 minutes. Was told to leave it on, which we did, while we went out for the evening. Cut to 5 hours later, and it's still not working, and the front desk was closed.
Very few rooms in SB, and at $310 a night, not worth that price when things don't work, and you can't even find parking at night.
We told the FD in the AM on checkout, and were told "that's too bad..." haha. Laughable.
