This place is not family friendly. The rooms are substandard and getting a hold of management is like trying to speak with God. Fortunately, government officials listen better.

I liked that this place was close to the bay aquarium. Other than that I will do a better job next time of doing my homework. Didn't see much staff around, room was not very clean. White towels were stained, mold in the fridge and it wasn't cold. I was surprised they did have a stove, but I wasn't cooking on vacation. Pay the extra$ stay somewhere else.
