Overall an excellent experience. The only issue is the place could use a fresh coat of paint. Staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was the usual BW buffet - scrambled eggs, waffles, pastries. Location is two blocks from the water and an easy walk to places to eat.

Very good location close to the harbor - two blocks away down a hill. Some interesting issues such as a "child's toilet" situated close to the floor and rather awkward for an adult. Shower head at the opposite end of the spectrum. Very high and reachable by someone at least 7-feet tall. I, at 5feet 6, could not touch it with arms fully extended. Two rather interesting extremes. Liquid soap dispensers in shower rather stingy and noisy. Bar soap never replaced during 4-night stay. Good morning breakfast but breakfast meats only provided two of four mornings. Attached picture of view from top floor room for those not on the bay side. Small, nice balcony and view not a problem for me. Covered parking. The "business center" is a desk with very slow computer in a wide spot on second floor. Nice B&W printer. They offer wine and cheese in the evening. This is nice if you can think of nothing else to do in this lovely holiday town. They do have a pool which was under repair when we were there. Don't know if inside or outside. Never saw it. No matter we would not have used it anyway.

This was a great little hotel in a pretty perfect location. Walking distance to the embarcadero, what more could you want!? The room was clean and roomy. The staff was friendly. We only stayed here for 1 night, so this was plenty for what we needed. The price was one of the most reasonable for the night we booked. Just a heads up, it didn't bother us much, but I know it will some. This hotel is 3 floors. So if you're not on the top floor, you will most likely here the people above you.

This is a funky little motel but fun. Get a reservation on the view side - walking distance to all restaurants and little shops. They serve a breakfast and a little wine hour in the evening. Small deck but big enough for two little chairs

First time here. This place is old, and feels old. We got a room with two queen beds, and it was tight Could not get around the bed to reach the heater control. Maybe this room should have had just one bed in it. The bathroom mirror was useless, but the hallway mirror had no light, strange design. The Wifi, was a hit and miss ordeal, it kept bumping me off, so I'd have to log back in, and when it was working it was very slow. The staff here was very nice, the rooms were clean, and there was lots of parking.

Room Tip: Get a room on the ocean side, second floor or higher.
