8.2 Great
Pros:This hotel is very simple, with sliding doors to the outside. The staff was friendly and the room extremely clean. Breakfast was simple, but the DIY waffle maker was a hit. The location is very close to the pier where you may glimpse otters and seals.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:The hotel is a 2 minute walk to the boardwalk and the wharf. The Saturday night staff was the friendliest hotel staff I've ever met. A++
9.3 Excellent
Pros:Location: close to the water, yet still quiet. Also appreciated the friendliness of the staff, and the appearance of the dining area and the room itself. We very much enjoyed our stay.
Cons:Closet access was a little awkward
