Character of the folks who checked us in & out. The same Folks helped us with our luggage. Provided a great continental breakfast with fresh baked items and great coffee. They were all about the satisfaction of the customer. Thank you

We had VIP style treatment from the owner who couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. The rooms were completely updated and spotless and the breakfast was a nice surprise. We would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to stay close to the beach.

The owners are very friendly & make you feel so welcome. The room was clean & bed was very comfortable. We would recommend this hotel to our friends & family. The hotel is close to restaurants, the beach & a beautiful walkway along the boulevard right by the beach.

Everything we needed for our brief stay in SB. Friendly, clean, with an amazing home made breakfast. Its family run, has a pool, rooms are arranged on verandas surrounding the pool and courtyard so no soul-less never-ending corridors of the big corporate hotels. a little bit of luxury a stones throw from the beach. perfect.
