        Clean room, friendly staff and it's well positioned close to 101, the beach and the State street.

        Location. Close to harbour.

        Expensive, for a motel-type accommodation.

        Location and friendly staff

        Musty smell, noisy swamp cooler and rate is way too high for the accomodations.

        The gardens were so meticulously maintained I was amazed. The staff were all absolutely delightful. The chocolate croissants and cheese danish were yummy. The rooms are not huge, but we did not need more. It was perfect. The linens were lovely and soft and the bed had a memory foam topper. We slept like babies. It is just far enough from the beach that we experienced absolute peace.

        It was very clean. The trolly to State Street and the beaches was very handy. I was very nicely surprised to see the full kitchen accomodations.

        The water pressure for the shower was about the only think I could complain about.

        Good location. Very comfortable rooms with full kitchen and all equipment, Pretty smart small garden. Vine and cheese hour is a good idea!

        Only one: a breakfast for me was very modest...

      • Group of friends

        I loved that there were bikes to use. We did a lot of hiking and site seeing in the area. It was a nice place to stay and wad located pretty close to the beach and down town. And the staff at the front desk was very knowledgeable and recommended some great place to check out or dinne ate.

        The pictures on line were a little dicieving. We thought we would be by the beach and we weren't. We thought that it would be a quiet little place but it was located next to a main and busy road as well as an apartment building. Parking was limited and if you left for the day you would lose your spot and have to find parking or park away from your room. No mention the pool was right out side of our room which created a lack of privacy and felt boxed in having to keep the curtains closed not to mention the noise from kid or the adults hanging out there.

        The front desc attitude to the guests and the kindnes. And also the vine in the evening:)

        The grounds were lovely, breakfast was fresh and filling, close to the beach, bicycles were fun.

        Very clean. The rooms are nice. We have a join room with the kids which is good. There are refreshments set up at the lobby which is a nice surprise.

        The breakfast area is too small .

        I stay there at least once a year. Convenient to good restaurants, charming, friendly staff, quiet.

      • Older travelers

        Walking along the beach. The continental breakfast, 4pm snacks and 8pm snacks.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        A clean, comfortable motel with a good level of onsite car parking. Great afternoon complimentary wine & cheese and reasonable light breakfast.The staff were great and easy to deal with.

        A little "out on the fringe" with a 15 minute walk to Stearns Wharf/town centre shopping.

      • Older travelers
        5.8

        Our mattress was very old and misshappen. It was replaced after one night..however, this should not have happened in the first place..

      • Couple
        7.8

        big and beautiful room with kitchen, outside swimming pool and jacuzzi, close to the West Beach, free Cheese, Wine, Milk and Cookies in the evening

        simple breakfast in a very little room, not enoug tables for everyone, little bit far from statestreet (downtown) for dinner
