“Buoy Bell a great place to stay in Trinidad.”

If you want an affordable, comfortable place to stay in Trinidad, CA, with a great view (and who doesn't go to Trinidad for the view) I recommend Buoy Bell. It's an upstairs corner apartment, and in April it was, like the entire town, quiet. The only thing I didn't like were the beds -- too hard for my taste, but a foam mattress pad stored in a closet took care of that and made all the difference in my comfort level. We had booked a different apartment in the same building, Harbor Heights, but the view didn't meet expectations -- the roof of another house obscured most of it. We asked to be moved and were graciously accommodated, and lucky because it was off-season and other units were available. The owner said a friend of his was planning to stay at Buoy Bell but wouldn't mind being moved, so thanks to the friend! From the apartment we walked all around town, to Trinidad Head, and down to the beach. The Eatery next door was wonderful for breakfast and dinner, and the grocery store, Murphy's, is convenient if you prefer to do your own cooking in the apartment kitchen.

Liked best: The realtor's willingness to move us to Buoy Bell when we were disappointed by the view in the unit we originally booked.
Liked least: The beds, but there was a foam mattress pad that made all the difference in comfort.
