LOVE this place! 8/28/2006

When they say 'on the beach' they mean it! We stayed in Rm. #6 (Sunset) Very cute! Very clean! Soooo many touches I have to think of them all.....let's see.... First let me say we were traveling footloose that day so we were driving South along the coast from Seaside down, and staying wherever we could as long as it was clean and within our budget. (we were trying to stay right around $100 but preferred to be within sight of the beach/a near impossibility) My husband stopped in to check the rates and I think the clerk said $169 but then said 'you really should at least see a room, they're very special...then we'll see what we can work out'. Reluctantly we did. Let me tell you....breathtaking. This is the kind of place for a romantic getaway of any sort. Sooooo well thought out.....I was in disbelief! When you enter the room you just have to sigh. The water is right there! We were on the second floor, with a balcony. The room is small but so well-appointed you don't even notice. The leather head/footboard, VERY comfy mattress and linens make a real statement. Also, in the room is a huge 2 person Jetted-tub with a picture window overlooking the ocean; gas fireplace. Custom kitchenette holds everything you need: microwave, small refrigerator, coffee-maker, it's own sink and kitchen towels. Paper Towels, dishes, corkscrew, ice bucket; a basket with popcorn and a few little treats; TV, DVD/VCR, CD....oh and they have a selection of DVD's you can borrow. Coffee Grinder, and a few other things (I forget) were available at the desk. On the balcony which has clear panels so as to not impede the view, there are a couple of chairs and a small gas grill! 2 headed shower/in the bathroom, and Bath and Body Hand Soap that had us smelling like we were in a spa. So, she was able to knock $30 off the price that night, since it was evening already and we were soooo happy we stayed. The best sleep and accommodations we had in the whole week of our trip. it was soooo worth the extra money. We figured we'd save somewhere else. I was really proud of the staff/management for the way the place makes you feel. They only have 17 rooms but they did them up right! And the flexibility in price for the last booking of the day? At this level you don't typically see that. Very, Very Nice! What every business should be like! more
