The proprietors Ed and Larry are truly wonderful! I don't remember ever meeting hotel proprietors who are as genuinely friendly, welcoming and accommodating as Larry and Ed. Fresh fruit and coffee/teas by patio offered in the mornings, along with a complimentary local newspaper was a nice touch.
We stayed in king suite 6, which had a more secluded entrance, but also did not have french doors opening to the pool as most of the other units did. Our french doors opened instead to a small patio area with citrus trees. The patio area by the pool, complete with bar area and relaxing fountain is a tranquil spot to have brought-in lunch (main "strip" and restaurants are just a few very walkable blocks away). The pool and surrounding patio area is prettily lit up at night, too. Pool is 82 degrees for night-time dips!
Room was clean and comfortable - our only caveat is that the night-time reading lights by the beds may be just a tad dim for some. Otherwise, a great location and value.
