I stayed 2 days, and things that didn't bother me so much on the first day were a bit more annoying the second time around.
-Free WiFi that was very usable
-First night had a very nice and helpful receptionist
-Price (though, we apparently got some sort of discount)
-Location: easy to get to from 101, close to harbor and beaches, close to downtown
-A slightly surly receptionist the second night
-Received stained towels of questionable cleanliness (3 times)
-No "Do not disturb" sign
-No shampoo provided
-Not the most comfortable bed
A great place to stay for the purposes of passing through or as a base for a day trip to Channel Islands, but I'd imagine it gets much worse with each additional night you stay.
