We booked one night here for a birthday trip and were glad we did. Our room was ready, so they let us check in early. Our room was quite spacious. The hotel is far enough off the beaten path that we had no noise problem at night. Yes, there is a short steep walk uphill to get there, but we...

This was a amazing trip. Hotel was awesome! Rooms are large and clean. Everything looked new. My husband loved the 55 in. flat screens. The manager's suggestion to eat at Steve's Steak House, was pefect. Plus he got us a 12% discount. I highy recommend this place.

We were upgraded to a room with a kitchen even though we booked on Hotels.com, we stayed an additional night and were given the same low price. Bed was very comfy, no trouble sleeping. It is up the hill about 10 minutes so walking may be difficult for some people. There is no pool/Jacuzzi but the price is a steal....

This hotel is up a very steep hill at the end of town closest to the theater. The rooms are nice, it's clean and there are some great views. The staff is nice and it's an easy walk down to restaurants and shopping.

We got there early they were very kind to let us in at 12 AM since the room was ready. We enjoyed full kitchen by cooking and it saved us a lot of money. I hope the bed was a little more firm, it was too soft and springy for me, but it was overall the best choice for our...

staff was friendly. They took care of our bags before check in and they let us check in 2 hours early. The hotel paid for the taxi on the way to the hotel. It was a good size room. everything was clean. It was very peaceful had a great time. The only bad thing is that its uphill.

“The mountain view rooms pretty much look down into someone's back yard, so if you're into views, maybe pick ocean view for a few more $$”
