AAA Inspector Notes
The inn is a block from the beach and the Spanish décor makes for a comfortable stay in this old Mission-style property. The décor varies but all rooms are inviting with vanity seatings and HD TVs. This inn has multiple buildings and levels with stone steps up to the second story which offers treetops views of the surrounding neighborhood. Smoke free premises. 53 units, some two bedrooms, efficiencies and kitchens. 1-2 stories (no elevator), exterior corridors.

Pros: Location was very good with just a short walk to the beach although a fair distance to reach main eating and shopping areas
Cons: For the price we were charged to stay here (over 350 dollars per night) I really was expecting something special. We had booked a family room which turned out to be very small. Noise from people using the hot tub was an issue at times. Breakfast was unbelievably basic with nowhere near enough room or facilities for guests to eat.

Pros:
Cons: We had to go to the front desk and get a sewing kit and use the safety pin to keep the curtains shut. The walls are pretty thin and we heard our neighbors above and next to us until 5AM. The instructions for the air conditioner are not clear and the air conditioner made loud "clicking" sounds.
