눉Room 103 did not have operating windows or a full door/wall between the bathroom and bedroom. There's a partial wall separating the toilet and shower area from the open sink area, but we didn't think to look up all the way to make sure it was a full wall. It also had weird plumbing, so when we ran the sink, we could hear the water burbling via the drain that was right in front of the toilet. Other than that, the room was fine. This B&B has plans for a renovation, so hopefully these designs flaws will be corrected.
눇The lady at reception was friendly and welcoming. The B&B has a lovely rooftop terrace with hot tub, a few small seating areas and a fire pit that looks towards the ocean.The reception area doubles as a breakfast room with a Keurig machine, tea, lemon cake and filtered water. The location is perfect if you are interested in a low-key north county get away near a non-touristy beach.They have complimentary parking, but if you ride the Coaster (cheaper than Amtrak) up from the airport, you can skip renting a car. I lived in Cardiff by the Sea during my post-college years and was thrilled to return to the area. The world's best donuts are located a block away at VG Donuts and Pipes Cafe (a block in the other direction) will fill you up with a great breakfast burrito. Seaside Market, Starbucks, Ki's Restaurant, Las Olas, etc. are all walking distance. There is also a new, ascetic hipster coffee place across the street. People unfamiliar with north county should be aware that Amtrak runs right along the coast and Hwy 5 parallels it, sandwiching Cardiff between the two. If you want glitz and fancy restaurants, then go to La Jolla or Del Mar.

눉The property needs lots of love. Our room was in need of storage for folded items. No drawers for clothes. Very odd. Also, the furnishings seemed to be very lacking.
눇The staff was a great group of people. The rooftop deck was the BEST.

눉bathroom could have been a little more private from the rest of the room.
눇Excellent common elements in a great location. Don't give the dated look of the rooms a second thought, great place. There were several surf spots in walking distance. Great Staff!
