Surprisingly nice small Inn. Breakfast next door at a bakery. Room is large like a suit with a great balcony. Very modern and comfortable. Wonderful view of the ocean, quiet and peaceful. Not a chain, you will remember this place

My husband found this gem while trying to find a place for us to stay on our first trip out to San Francisco. The hotel is a short drive from the city, the ideal distance for day trips.
