Breathless Views

8/10 Very good

Many new changes with new owners.
We have stayed here many times under previous owner. The prices are higher, less services (no late night cookies or wine cheese service), really no early check in (4pm)or late checkout(11am). My whole point of staying there was the ocean views, and my windows were dirty(streaks on one window, bird poop on other. My husband and I tried to clean it off as far as we could reach. Manager said they don’t clean them, they have a service. I replied, get a squeegee and open the window and you are able to clean it. He took it under advisement. On the other hand, he did tell us about the whales in the bay. The room itself was very clean and very comfortable! Oh, breakfast is now vegetarian, no meat for you.

I think 500 dollars in March for bed and breakfast is far too expensive,the Steinbeck room was nice,very small,perfectly clean etc…and I booked and paid realising what I had paid,buy maybe I was expecting something else more luxurious ,it didn’t do it for us,sorry,everyone is nice and that,but I moved onto ah Grand Hyatt ,in a club room with meals,drink included for 2 nights for the price of this one ….I cannot realistically recommend
View from Steinbeck room and no he didn’t stay here

6/10 Good

Upon arrival after a long day of travel we were scolded for checking-in in the evening. We got a room that faces the front yard and entrance, with no privacy at all, having to close all the shatters, so partial view of the ocean became no view of the ocean. Breakfast was based on carbs and sugar, with eggs as the only protein ingredient. No vegetables, no cheese, no healthy nutrition... Outside surroundings are amazing, thanks to nature :)

Very Elegant Hotel
Very elegant hotel with tons of history. The bed was so comfortable, some older places have very odd beds that squeak every time you move but not this one. Great view of the water. We got there too late to experience the welcoming they provide so be sure to arrive early enough to see the property in the daylight.
