    Cute hotel, but not the ideal locationsmall rooms and tiny bathrooms, cute flair though. free breakfast is only pastries and coffee. location was too far away from beach for us, and hotel does not run a shuttle. needed to use lyft. hotel staff are extremely friendly though!

          Relaxed and invitingI enjoyed my stay here. If you like reading or not feeling like you're stuck in a room, this place is great. There are tables and chair close by every room and a great outside area with a sofa and chairs. I actually sat out there one evening just to relax.
