Our room was rather nice. It had a very comfortable (four-poster) queen bed. There were two high-backed Victorian style chairs that were fairly comfortable, but there was no side table or coffee table on which to set drinks, or books, or eye-glasses, or anything else. So it was a bit awkward to use these chairs to sit and read.
The en suite bathroom was just fine - modern plumbing, plentiful towels and an exhaust fan.
Our windows faced Hwy 1 which was quite noisy. I like fresh air and a cool room for sleeping so I had the windows open. The road noise was quite unpleasant. I would not stay there again unless I could be guaranteed of a room that does not face the highway.
The breakfast was fine - fried potatoes and an egg casserole with assorted fruits, cereals, yogurts, etc. But I advise you to get there early. Breakfast opened at 8:30, I got there at 8:33, and I was the last one there. The first round of dishes had been cleaned out and I had to wait a few minutes for the second round to be delivered. But there was plenty and I had all I wanted.
One final bit I hesitate to put in because it makes me sound like I don't like dogs, which is not true. The manager has a really sweet dog, "Gracie", that follows her around as she checks in guests. Gracie also has the run of the house, including the breakfast room, and she makes the rounds of the guests while they are eating breakfast, looking for soft touches. I love dogs and have owned several, but I don't like them lurking about and begging in rooms where humans are eating.
