My husband and I stayed there on Nov. 11 to celebrate his birthday (Nov 11) and our 25th anniversary (Nov.12)
The pros: It was so quiet around us, if it hadn't been for the cars in the parking lot we never would have known other people were in the hotel. There is a Starbuck's on site which was nice. The room was very nice and I like how the bed faced the window. Everything was clean and nice.
Here are the CONS:
I was disappointed in the room chosen for us, as I had explained it was our 25th anniversary and I wanted a very nice room. The room given to us was on the 2nd floor but it had no balcony. It did have a beautiful view of the ROOF line! I asked for an ocean view but only saw a partial view of the ocean. We were going to stay another night but my husband was so mad, we checked out early. He is 6'7" tall and the bed was high enough off the ground. Also, his feet did not hang off the end of the bed either. The shower head in the shower was high on the wall too. He hates showers with low shower heads. The bed was not to our liking though. We like a pillow top mattress and this bed was very firm. If you like firm beds, this one is great for you! Also, be sure to stop by a store and bring your own drinks! A 20 oz. soda sold from the front desk cost $2.80! OUCH!( That was ridiculous! ) A great place to eat is Miller's Landing. The food is really good and they have all sorts of fare.. burgers, seafood, steak, home- cooked meals.
