Exterior hotel room doors do not make you feel very safe. Very few safety or security measures. Blinds on large exterior window was unable to be closed. Gap around the outside of the door. This is clearly an old motel that has been renovated. They spent a lot of money on the lobby and breakfast area. That is probably a brand new addition. But the rest of the hotel is not great.

I stayed on the 5th to the 6th. The room was ok, it smelled like a dirty unchanged mop!! I did not say anything because I was tired and didn't want to hassel changing rooms. I think housekeeping needs to change out their floor cleaners ( mops, floor pad, vacuum) more often. The location and staff were great and the breakfast room was good.

Good hotel for overnight stay

Pros: Comfortable beds and nice, clean rooms.
Cons: Breakfast was okay. I was disappointed in the hot food options, I've never had bacon that literally had no taste. Bummer.
We were happy with our stay as we were driving up to San Francisco and needed a place to spend the night. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable and we even found an outlet near the pool to charge our Tesla.

Fine for a several night stay

Pros: The hotel was busy when we stayed there, yet the rooms were quiet. There was a great selection for breakfast.
Location: Location was convenient: near HWY 1, 5 minutes or so to Fisherwman's Wharf etc. Couple of restaurants and a shopping areawithin easy walking distance
Not the biggest of hotel rooms, but adequate for a family of 4 without feeling too cramped. Everything was working / clean / up to standard
