Perfect location, easy walking distance to shopping, dining, and coastal access. Cozy room and friendly staff. Complimentary use of Sweetwater Inn spa next door definitely a welcome plus!

Paper thin walls make it hard to sleep. Great spa
Unfortunately, I would not come back here, because it was too hard to sleep: I could hear our neighbors snoring and talking through the paper thin walls. The beds were uncomfortable and the pillows were thread bare. This all made it difficult to have a relaxing, romantic time with my wife. The staff we interacted with were all very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was just OK, my wife and I did not like it but the other guests seemed to like it all right. The issue for us was that the food selection was a strange: lots of beans, and cold cut meats and cheeses, in addition to regular continental breakfast items. The best part about this hotel is the attached spa. My wife and I went to the hot tub every night. It feels like you are walking into some magical old gold rush time lodge. It's really amazing. Depending on when you go, you may see other naked people there, though you don't have to be naked yourself. This can be slightly uncomfortable for some people. We booked a private hot tub which was $25 per hour per person, and that was a great experience, even though it was a little expensive. The atmosphere is very cute and quaint, there are good amenities, and it is an a good local area. But I would probably pay more next time for a hotel with more privacy and comfort.

Juiciful stay!
We tried to figure out to get the bed in our car to take home! It was the most comfortable bed we ever slept in. Good breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay

Everything was great! The place was as advertised, clean and comfortable. The staff was very nice and helpful. Location was awesome, we were able to walk around town easily with coffee shops and restaurants nearby.
