Pros: Decent size room and bathroom. Comfortable, clean bed. Okay breakfast (certainly better than the usual cold cereal and packaged pastry). Is being actively remodeled so hopefully can get themselves back to where they were 15 years ago when I first stayed there and it was clean, charming, professionally-staffed, etc.
Cons: Room was generally grubby, furniture is done for. Killed a number of spiders in the room. Mice in the hallway. [NOTE: Owing to construction, outer doors were being left open.] Parking limited as lot is shared with city/public park. Entrance not at all well marked. Disused restaurant and bar leave the place looking abandoned.

Pros: The hotel was a bit dated, but clearly kept clean and tidy. Staff were extremely helpful, both over the phone and in person. And the continental breakfast was surprisingly good- lots of pastries, hot options, etc! I thought the place had character!

Pros: Good breakfast, with lots of fruit & selection. Comfortable bed. Nice walk to beach & cool shops & restaurants.
Cons: They are renovating so some small issues. Backs onto a park ,where there were several homeless people so I was worried about our car. But there were no problems.
