I have been to this property before and had a decent enough stay that I chose to return on a recent visit to the coast. Greeting us was construction equiqment that created a blockage into one of the levels of the parking garage. Parking and actually entering the building took a bit of effort. If we had known in advance that the construction was taking place we would have looked into booking into another property. Since we were here and wanted to get into a room we stayed. I was pleased that we were given one of the newer units on the top floor. The view was indeed spectacular. However the room was stiffling hot and even opening the sliding door didn't really get the room temperature to a decent temp during our stay. Upon using the lower of the parking levels my car bottomed out both on entry and exit. Thankfully no damage was done. We were plagued with spotty to no internet connection for much of the early part of our stay (apparantly not the hotels fault) which was another irritant. The breakfast was mediocre at best and the breakfast room is quite small. This property has been around for a while and though the new addition has nicer rooms one still sees the wear and tear especially in areas such as the pool which we did not use as the spa was out of order as well. All is all, despite the great views from this property I doubt that I would ever return in the future.

Thank you for sharing your concerns. Although we are honored that you would pay us a return visit here on the coast, we are saddened that your recent stay was a disappointment. Please accept our sincerest apologies for any way in which our improvements caused you some inconvenience in parking. We are sorry as well that your room temperature was uncomfortable and we will notify our maintenance team of your review. Your feedback is unusual for us and we are very disappointed that we fell short in our goal of providing delightful accommodations to go along with our incredible views. Please reconsider staying with us again here on the coast so that we can work to make it up to you for our shortcomings.

We very much enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and very comfortable. The view was great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The smoked salmon chowder was superb! We would be happy to stay again if ever in the area.

Room Tip: Enjoy the smoked salmon chowder!

Our room was fantastic, with a balcony directly over the beach. Access to the beach is a 5 minute walk along the street in front of the hotel. The hotel has a complimentary salmon chowder hour every night, followed by cookies later in the evening. Incidentally, parking is very easy.

The Elizabeth St Inn was not one of my favorite hotels on our trip... the main things I did not like was the underground parking - no matter what we did our new mini van bottomed out entering and leaving the parking area. Once in the underground parking area, there are no signs telling you where to go, where the elevator to the hotel is, etc. And, it is a little bit creepy - it is dark and the laundry room is open right by the elevator. The elevator is small and VERY SLOW. Lots of waiting for the elevator. The pool/fitness room is also IN the underground parking area with no signs. There was not really a good place to park to check in - or even an area to mark where/what you should do - except to park on the side of the road.
The hotel and the room itself were also ok - it is starting to be dated, but it was sufficient and comfortable. The room was good size and the balcony had a good view. Breakfast was good. We would consider staying here again if not for the bottoming out of our vehicle..

We always appreciate hearing from our guests and thank you for sharing your thoughts. It's good to hear that you enjoyed the tasty breakfast options and valued the view from your spacious room. However, we're sorry for any concerns about the parking garage and in particular for the difficulty with your van bottoming out. Continuous improvement is important to us and we'll keep your feedback in mind as we move forward. We certainly understand your concerns, but hope you'll come stay with us again with a different vehicle sometime in the future.
