The location was great. We went to big sur one day and drove up to Santa Cruz the next
The wifi wasn't usable...
The room was big and the beds were very comfortable and big as well. Everything was quite clean.
It was pretty cold inside, in late Nov. there was no heating yet.The room furniture and fittings were worn out and the room really needed some redecoration. There was also a weird chemical smell coming from the bathroom area. No breakfast.
Cheaper than other hotels nearby.
The hotel didn't know how to do on tax exemption.(so I didn't get tax exemption)
I was under the impression that I was getting a fireplace. When I arrived, they didnt have any rooms with fireplaces. Wouldnt ahve paid that price for what i got...
The view from the balcony was beautiful but it was very hard to find on our GPS. We had to stop twice to get directions. The cabins were charming.
Hard to find with GPS on new car, inroom coffee was not convenient, the bed linens were spartun, decor was not cozy but clean and in good repair
*Employees are friendly, ready to assist Guests, but are also affected by state of conditions very much not their fault. * Location, surroundings/patio * Shower-power was terrific * All units are in need of remodel and upgrades, so I see much potential for a fine hotel/cottages at some future time when new owners take charge.
* POOR lighting; needed to ask for additional lamp beside bedside- not enough light in both side table lamps for reading. - light in corner of room ( only one) was very minimal- gave a dim atmosphere * NO microwave oven *Tiny one cup Coffee Machine *Small corner table had Tray Glued onto it. Left over space did NOT provide room to sit down and use ( for writing, eating etc). *Small Fridge was on a piece of 6" wood- stuck on floor *One small sink/poor water pressure/ limited counter space for 2 people *Small hanging area for clothes * Old gas wall heater did not turn on; repairman needed to come in for 20 minutes to fiddle with unit/took it apart- but fixed it. *Water stood in Shower and would not drain. (did not drain all night). Manager suggested we notify them at 8:00AM day of check out so that maintenance could come in and fix drain. Said 'No", would not be convenient for me. By time we left 10:50 Am next morning discovered water on floor of closet and bathroom. Management did not offer to refund any money for all these inconveniences. *Exit OUT of terrain places one on busy Highway intersection- view to either side is somewhat limited. Have to pull out fast to get on this Major highway. No stoplight. *Old dilapidated rooms, much damage in wood, paint bubbling- would have felt paying $ 55 or so would be fair. *Damaged Curtains with huge holes * Damaged blankets/old with many holes and tears *small pillows on bed * Wood rails on back of bed- NO pillows for comfort. Heard they are now under new ownership- will be curious as to what the new owners decide to do with this place.
The bathroom is so small.
The location was close to my daughter. Because I had the door wide open all day and night, the hotel pet cat came and slept on the bed with me and she killed a mouse and left it for me next to the bed. I'm an animal lover and found that endearing.
Housekeeping used SO MUCH chemicals in the room that we both were adversely affected within minutes. I had to open all the doors to air it out and keep the sliding door wide open at all times, night and day. There were not enough blankets for "camping outdoors" so I had to bring a down comforter from my daughter's house. PLUS, when I asked for another night extension (all other places were filled and the place was convenient), they surprised me with the cost: $175.00 for that night! The other two nights were $89!!! and they were on Thanksgiving and the day after. They over charged me because I complained.
We booked a suite, but we upgraded to a cottage for free. It's very romantic, with a small garden in front and at the back, just recently renovated, with a fire place, new bathroom and shower. Staff was super friendly and pointed out a few gorgeous spots nearby
nice location, very large rooms
Nice room and atmosphere.
Not crazy about the cig butts left outside in the fireplace.
Pretty setting, quaint little cabin, adequately equipped, in a convenient location.
Location was good.
Very plain decorations making room feel cold. Bathroom pain pealing off the walls, toilet paper cheap. We were on the bottom floor, very noisy just from people walking.
dog friendly, clean
The location. rooms were very clean, comfortable and lovely. Enjoyed the fire place.
garage and luggage racks were dirty. Did not make a good 1st impression. We would not put our luggage on the racks.. they were disgusting.
Comfortable beds and nice porch.
Footsteps from room above were very loud.
The cabin was excellent.
The accommodation is misrepresented in the web photos. We thought we were getting a cottage. Instead we were given a motel room. We discussed this with the manager and were 'upgraded' to what we thought we had booked.
Location, less than 5 minutes from the Main Street Ocean Drive and the shops and restaurants.
Hotel was dated, bathrooms need to be refurbished.
Old but comfortable,clean,management very friendly and helpful
Cleanliness Room size and comfort Easy highway access
No notification of the confusing street access; On-line maps lead to blockaded entrance. It would be a long (30min) walk to town center. Smoking is allowed on the room verandas, which leads to smoke chimneying into adjacent and upstairs rooms.
Good Location Neat and tidy
Poor wifi connectivity Poor phone signal
My older son and I reserved a room in the inn and upon our arrival were pleasantly surprised to find out we'd been bumped up to a two bedroom cottage at no extra charge. It was great.
I liked that the inn was nicely furnished but still kept it more down to earth.
I disliked the sharing of the balcony, because it had made us my cautious of when we should open the curtains.
can't open the wine bottle ...need a better opener
