Not only lovely but has a great location. Next to many fine restaurants and shops an about eight blocks to the beach. The included breakfast is very good and the rooms are super comfortable and well appointed. Will recommend it any time and will stay here again for sure.

THe Inn is very nice with fireplace and the best location. IT makes shopping a breeze, maybe too good of one with the wonderful shops and animal friendly city. COuld not have chosen a better place, quiet room in the back was lovely.
