The B&B was very pretty and located in the center of town. The breakfasts were good. We paid extra for a suite but were disappointed in the room. It was on the main level and faced directly against the building next door. Even though there was bright sunshine outside, our room was very dark all day. Also, the bathroom had a giant old tub that requires you to step over a wall that was about 3’ high and 1.5’ deep to get in to take a shower. It was nearly impossible and quite dangerous. Also, every time someone in another room ran the water or turned on their bathroom fan it was super loud in our room. Perhaps the other rooms were better, in which case I would stay again, otherwise I wouldn’t. But if you book a room I would check to be sure it’s not like the one we had.

Friendly staff, spacious room, excellent breakfast, complimentary parking.

fantastic location - in the heart of downtown, friendly staff, wonderful yummy breakfast, comfy rooms with charm. ( unlike chain hotels.) A wonderful personality to the Inn.

Fantastic. The best thing is the fantastic breakfast. I will be back on my next PCH trip

Lovely antique home. Gracious staff. Fantastic breakfast.

The room smelled like febreeze. It was also really loud. They have decks if they put nice plants around them it would be great. Otherwise you are looking at parking lots. Nice staff but the whole place smells like febreeze. Not worth the money for a very small loud room.

Worn out and no privacy. Our door opened into common area and you could hear people upstairs like they were in your room

Great location downtown. Quite and quaint. Charming staff.

Thank you for your feedback. We do have different room sizes and locations. I am not sure where the febreeze smell is coming from. As a rule we do not use air freshners. Different rooms have different views, decor and sizes. If you'd like to give us another try choosing an upstairs room.
