    Short and sweet - I booked a non-smoking room but was given a smoking room. I was told it was all that was left. My son has bad asthma. Our stay was horrible because of this. Otherwise, probably not a bad place.More

    We only have one room that has a king bed and is a smoking room. It is in the 200's building. While you can see the ocean and Morro Rock from our property, we don't have any views from the rooms.
