Bed was very comfortable. Staff was very helpful. Easy to get to and overall a good place to stay while venturing out to the coast and wine country. Next to walking and dog park. Breakfast included. Nothing fancy but ok for a start to the day.

We stayed here 2 nights. Nice large room with a view over the park. Staff was great, one of the best breakfasts for this type of hotel. They had pretty much everything you could think of. The hotel is clean and pleasant. We walked to the dunes from the hotel.
