Easy to find, located by a lot of neat things. The room was unique and historical. The jacuzzi tub was a nice plus! Only downside was no microwave or fridge but it was fine.

Birthday weekend with the wife
Really quaint hotel lots of space in room and even a jacuzzi tub! Housekeeping staff was light so wasn’t able to refresh room and the restaurant isn’t open until 2pm so no breakfast ☹️ But overall even if it wasn’t a PERFECT stay it was still a very GOOD stay. 9/10

Historic location and surroundings
All the employees went out of their way to accommodate our needs. the onsite restaurant has a record number of wine types on tap. The jetted tub was nice even though the jets were few. The room we stayed in had a Juliet balcony and a gas fireplace. Noise from the nearby freeway was not too loud but noticeable - I would definitely stay at this place again.
