The small boutique hotel in Pier Village is so nice and has such good service, I had to review it. The wonderful and warming gas fireplace in our room was much needed in this frigid weather we have right now (January, 2015.) The lobby is cozy too with a fireplace, vintage foosball table and pool table...so fun and different from...

The relatively new -- or looks like new Bungalow Hotel had a welcoming lobby, with unique "adult blocks" for furniture. The staff, Ana, was very helpful.
