“Strange Place”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Picture a strip-mall aesthetic, not a classic old home bed-and-breakfast. Room large, but unmaintained: gross, stained carpet, gas fireplace didn't work, sink did not drain, no blackout curtains or light-blocking blinds, mattress sub-standard. On the plus side, central location, decent breakfast. Don't think I would choose it again- I'd rather be at a Comfort Inn for less money, similar charm. Actually, the comfort Inn would never had had the gross stained carpet.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere

Stayed in suite #10. Fireplace broken, deadbolt broken, no A/C, weird tub/shower situation. Old, faded dusty fake flowers decorate the room. Very outdated. Big room with high ceilings and big comfortable bed. But I wouldn't return.

Stayed April 2014, travelled with friends

My wife and I stayed here and it was one of the worst experiences we have had. Beds hard as a rock, fireplace didn't work, heard traffic on the street, walls paper thin and heard neighbors tv and dog all night. Front desk was not responsive to neighbors noise. Buffett in morning was not that great and staff not very freindly. Stay anywhere else but here!

Room Tip: Stay at another hotel or B&B!

We left Napa for a quiet relaxing Thanksgiving! That is exactly what we got. Quick check in and very friendly. Breakfast was fresh. (the best blackberries I've had since I lived in Oregon) Suites are comfy, and had everything you'd need. PET FRIENDLY! We will be back!

We stayed for just one night but would've loved to have been able to stay longer. Our room was clean and comfortable. Staff were helpful, owner was very friendly and quirky! Attend the wine hour as you'll get to meet the other guests and hopefully make more friends as we did. Breakfast around a single table worked well and the food on offer was superb. The location was also ideal and central. Look no further!

This B&B was just what we were looking for. Comfortable rooms, friendly staff and amazing breakfasts. Located within walking distance of novelty shops and restaurants. Short drive away from a marina and the US Hwy 1 which we followed south as far as Big Sur. Great location and would highly recommend this property.

We stayed here for 1 nite coming from Carmel to fly out of San Francisco. This is a bed and breakfast and met our expectations. Check in was quick and efficient. While our room overlooked the town's main street, there was no issue with noise or traffic. Breakfast was surprisingly extensive with both cold and warm options. Regardless of who we spoke to in the town, before and after our dinner, everyone was friendly and willing to answer our questions.
