My son and I stayed at the Yellow Giraffe just for one night on August 14-15,2012. The place itself was nice and the location was great because you could walk to the beach. We payed around $112.00 for a dounle room with kitchenette. It definitely had a homey feel to it.
The only gripe I had about it wa the bathroom size. It was so small. If you sat on the toilet, your head came so close to the sink that you could lose a tooth or bang your head if you weren't careful. The shower had a very outdated showerhead and because of the small size, if you dropped anything - forget about reaching down to get it.
My son and I are average bulid and we had a problem getting in and out without hitting the sink, I can't imagine someone bigger using it. Also, when I went to dry off I lifted my leg too quickly and hit my knee on the sink.
Otherwise, the place was adequate for a nights stay near the beach. Everyone was friendly and the pool and rooms were clean. I was just glad we only stayed one night because there's no way I was going in that shower again.
