There ought to be a mini fridge in each room, or a statement that there is not one. We brought food for ourselves that went bad due to no storage option. Also, the room was right by an exhaust fan so opening the window for fresh air was not an option even though the room had clearly been smoked in before our arrival.

Quaint hotel close to beaches, restaurants and shopping. The bathroom door was broken and I got stuck inside. The staff was prompt in getting me out and moving us to a new room but it definitely was a little run down.

Property was in a great location and the staff were all really friendly! It’s just an old building so the hallway light and noise went though our door enough to keep me from sleeping well. No real curtains to cover the window so wasn’t ideal for the sleep I was hoping to catch up on.

This is an old hotel that has character and charm. What it might lack in luxury it more than makes up for in the graciousness of the diligence of the staff. They all went the extra mile to make my stay amazing. I was at home in a little bit of East Coast elegance while in Santa Monica CA

the room was fine. just fine. you can tell it’s an older property but it also smelled like an older property. the lobby and hallways (the room somewhat) smelled like and old hotel. maybe a musty smell or that smell your grandmothers house has. very unpleasant.
