You perhaps thought that the Seal Rock Inn was a four star hotel. It is not, but it is a superb place to stay at a reasonable price.

It's an unusual elevator. She will probably need someone with her to deal with the doors and to maneuver in and out. I wouldn't rule the place out, just know that it's a little different and not your usual elevator. Good... More
