Nice discovery! Great location, very quiet. Comfy bed. We had a primier suite all the way at the end over the water (they are all over the water). We commented to each other several times how quiet it was. Didn't have any train noise as mentioned by others, tho I would imagine that rooms closer to front would have that...

This is a wonderful place to stay! Wish we would have stayed more than just two nights. Every room has a great view of the water. Our room was very clean, smelled fresh. The beds and pillows were comfortable. Good selection for breakfast in the mornings. Small, cozy vibe overall. I would highly recommend staying here when in the area!

Great location and a very friendly staff. I loved the view and it was right on the water. I wish it was a little more sound proofing. I could hear other guests.The mountains were out and I got to see sea otters.

Fantastic waterfront location with small, cozy well appointed rooms. Big flatscreen. All the small details are great- super comfy beds and pillows, glass drinking glasses in room (not the lousy plastic!), excellent coffee way above average, and a really god breakfast bar. Walk to several super waterfront restaurants including RAM brewery which I liked a lot. I rode my bike...

This is a fine place to stay for the price. Comfortable beds, great view, close to town and restaurants. Coffee is good, breakfast buffet is ok. The front desk staff have always been pleasant. I gave it four stars, only because of the parking.. it's a little tight, but you can do it!

A one night stay on a Tuesday. A 5:30 pm happy hour hosted by the general manager was outstanding. Great spread of appetizers as well as beer and wine. The room was clean and, being at the back of the hotel, very quiet. Beautiful ocean views. Well done!

I finally got a chance to surprise my husband with a stay for his birthday! We just came back from a long weekend getaway and it was as great as I expected it to be! I spend a lot of time walking the Ruston area and have wanted to visit this SC location. (They STAY booked!) The room was perfect...the...

Staff was excellent and friendly. Room was very clean, great views, nice lobby, nice breakfast with crispy bacon (not always the case). Drawbacks are the loud and frequent train horn - got to be quite annoying, and the a/c and heat motor was quite noisy.

Loved this place. Almost the entire outer wall of my small room was glass and all you see is the ocean. At night you see lights of the distant pier reflecting on the water, its surreal. And the sunrises... staff is friendly, breakfast good. The only problem is the trains going by. It's not the train whistles but the warning...

Stayed here for the weekend. SC is RIGHT over the water. The views are spectacular from just about every room. SC is reminiscent of a nice Courtyard Hotel. It's set up for business travelers and would be excellent for week long business stays. The staff is really nice and very accommodating. The only slight negative is the trains. There is...

“Rooms all the way at the end on 3rd floor would be quietest.”

“Be aware of the train and if you can get a far-side room, go for that. I did not mind the low noise level.”
  • You can see the Olympic Mountains from the room.
