          Beautiful area and property. Kind and attentive staff. Clean! Close to the water front area.

          None.

        • Couple
          8.2

          lovely room as we expected, pleasant bottle of champagne in the room, afternoon vine tasting also very nice, friendly stuff and good location

          unfortunatelly no wi-fi connection, we were not able to connet in the evening but in the morning it has been fixed

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The bottle of champagne was a nice touch (even though we did not drink it); staff was friendly; continental breakfast was sufficient; and having coffee available all day was also nice. The location was perfect for our stay--just a nice walk to the wharf area, beach and pier. We would stay here again--especially since they upgraded our room from a Standard Queen to a King on the 2nd floor.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          I like the fact that there was coffee available all the time and that the staff was helpful

        • Single
          5.4

          Beautiful place near the harbour.

          The hotel is located near the 101 road so too much traffic (continuous flow of cars and trucks going through).The place is definately too expensive for the location.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Possibility to use also the facilities of the Brisas de Mar and Inn by the harbor as all 3 hotels belong to the same company.

          Room was a bit small, it matters however only if you stay indeed more then one or two days.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Staff were very friendly. This is the first placed that has every called me to let me know I left something behid.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Free wine and cheese, cookies and milk every afternoon/evening. Free dvd and beach cruiser bike use.

          On a main road with pool and breakfast balcony adjacent to sidewalk - although not really a problem.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Its wonderful location, which was mid way between the beach/harbour areas and the great shops and bars/restaurants of State Street, the comfortable and impeccably clean and freshly decorated room, plus the excellent complimentary breakfast, cheese & wine and milk and cookies.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          It is a small but nice hotel. We had a large room, very clean and well equipped. Hotel staff was friendly.

        • Couple
          8.8

          Very nice Room, nice Service over the whole Day!

          A Bit too expansive!

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The hotel was selected as part of a California motoring holiday and chosen principally for its location close to harbour, beach and shops / restaurants. We found an excellent room standard, clean and comfortable throughout. Staff were helpful and a good breakfast was served. Suited our purposes perfectly

          Nothing significant

        • Couple
          8.2

          Wonderful location--easily accessible from the freeway and close to the beach and downtown.

          Included continental breakfast will seem limited to some, though we had no complaints.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          Great value for the price, loved the extra's that were included: like the bottle of complementary bubbly, the sachet of lavender on the pillow, the wine & cheese in the evening & the milk & cookies ( unable to partake- but nice touch). The overall atmosphere at the lavender Inn is most welcoming - we enjoyed our short stay & will definitely return . . .

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Loved the availability of bikes and the proximity to the beach and bike path. Thought the breakfast was very good.
