For $75 it was reasonable enough. Its on the main drag so location is good. Rooms are old, had cigarette burns, peeling wallpaper, shower head from the 1970's, very thin walls, and no soap/shampoo. TV was fine. Breakfast is terrible with cellophane wrapped scones, donuts, and bear claws. Clientele was a little below average. I'd probably stay here again otherwise...

Minimum 200? Jesus. That is asking a bit much for a voluntary review, don't you think? The pool and hot tub were very chlorinated and salty. Did a number on my hair. Not the worst though. The staff were cool and let us chill in there after it was closed as long as we were quiet and respectful.

Great central location just a minute off the 101 freeway. Easy walk to beach/pier, main street shops and the historic Mission area. Clean rooms, friendly staff. Small but useful pool and hot tub. Onsite restaurant is very good. Easy parking close to the rooms is a plus.

Downstairs Room 102: Comfy king bed, clean bathroom/dressing area, nice appearance, no damp odor. HOWEVER 10+ year customer, maybe our last. After bringing in our things we went to the so-o very very good Restaurant/Cafe. Returning we kicked off shoes and readied for bed. Discovered damp carpet closest to inside area of bed/dressing/bath. Quick check, no flood but had noticed...

You feel like you've stepped back in time a bit, which is sometimes a delightful thing. Thoughtful service, I had a huge omelet which lasted me for 3 meals. Pleasant and kind service. I believe this is their 50th anniversary year! We sat at the counter on stools

There were cockroaches in the dresser drawers that the tv sits on. I saw them as I was getting to leave while I was checking the room for anything I may have left behind. Also we got there to check in late around 10 pm due to traffic conditions and the lady at the front counter was rude.

It had that "motel smell" but everything in the room worked (fast Wi-Fi and great cable) and the room and bathroom were clean. The bed was comfortable, the heat worked (it was cool and rainy), good shower pressure, clean towels.

If you visit here bring your own plunger and something to put on the floor over wet carpet. Be sure to lock your door as they don't always register you to the room and will send others there after you. Keys will need to be reset every night. More problems here in one visit than I have experienced in all...
