Good option
The bathroom was spotless, bed comfortable and room adequate. Carpet was older and stained so I was really unable to judge how clean it really was (which isn’t unusual). The only complaint I would have is this particular room had a strange odor which they tried to mask with a plug in air scent that I had to unplug because it gave us a headache. Our friends room did not have the odor. We did not request another room, but my guess would be they would have switched it if asked and able. Parking was a challenge especially after 5 pm so try to get there before people get off work. Streets will still be crowded, but you’ll have a better shot at getting a spot close. People were friendly and accommodating and area was close to restaurants and attractions. The continental breakfast was lovely with plenty of options.

You Owe it to Yourself to Stay Here
The place is great and the area perfect, between city center and the shore. Can't say enough about how helpful and gracious our host Kaled is, absolutely top notch, above and beyond. The rooms are very clean and the beds are incredibly comfortable.

Good location, nice guest house
Very nice owner with a nice guest house in a good location. Street parking wasn't the easiest and it sounds like it can get a lot harder. There was a funky odor in our room.
