Outstanding5.0 / 5
The staff was great and our room was upgraded on arrival. We loved having bikes available to ride to State Street, the pier and the Funk Zone for wine tasting. Evening wine and cheese was a plus as well as cookies and milk. Had a great stay

Good points, bad points
The hotel provides nice hospitality. The continental breakfast in the morning, and the complimentary wine, cheese and crakcers in the afternoon, were both very good. The grounds are nicely planted. Other aspects were somewhat disappointing, though. We were supposed to have a queen bed; if so, it was made for a very small queen. The bathroom, with its pedestal sink, had almost no room for toiletries. Worst was the street noise. The hotel is near an on-ramp to Highway 101, and traffic was constant and loud throughout the day.
