    This is case of deceiving pictures. The inn is located right next to a fairly busy street. The pool, stunning in the pictures, is also basically right on the busy street masking it completely unenjoyable let alone relaxing.

    Nice, clean, well maintained, friendly staff

    Super friendly staff, newly remodeled bathroom, wine & cheese hour, clean room, late check-out, free parking & Internet, spacious room - they gave us the largest room!

    Couldn't sleep well because of the street noise - cars, motorcycles, delivery trucks, garbage pick-up

    Beautiful place near the harbour.

    The hotel is located near the 101 road so too much traffic (continuous flow of cars and trucks going through).The place is definately too expensive for the location.
