This hotel was really lovely. From the moment we arrived staff were very friendly and helpful. We booked a king room which was ready for us at 1pm, earlier than expected. The room was very nice with a comfortable bed but I was absolutely amazed that there was no air conditioning in the room, just a ceiling fan. My own fault for not researching hard enough, I just expected that, when you're paying a decent amount for a hotel room, you should get air conditioning as standard. There was also a charge for wifi and parking, although I thought this was reasonable at under $20 per night.
The hotel is in a fantastic location, less than 5mins walk to the old fishermans wharf where you can catch the free trolley to cannery row.
The pool area is nice and secluded with quite a large spa tub. It was quite noisy when we were there as a lot of kids were enjoying the water. I would stay at this hotel again but not in summer!
