This is an old motor roadhouse, of the kind that was exceedingly common in the 1920s-1940s, but which tendered to go downhill, often heavily downhill afterwards. This one, though, has been well-maintained and partially updated to keep its original charm and style, but stay comfortable today.
The owner is very friendly, helpful, and efficient, the bed we had was very comfortable, and the room was perfect for us and our two kids. It had a living room area, with a bedroom and a kitchen off of it, with a bathroom off the bedroom. This enabled all of us to sleep with us and the kids having our own areas, perfect when the kids tend to be hard to get to sleep at hotels, and the room was still kozy and had lots of old charm. We got the hot breakfast delivered to the room and it came promptly and precisely at the time we previously requested and the food was delicious and different each time.
One note is that due to the age, the place does still need some updating and replacement or repair of small things, but this seems minor and had no real impact on our stay or comfort. We will gladly stay here again next time we go.
Unique Quality: Generally, the qualities have been described as above. Otherwise, this place nicely combines old-fashioned charm, coziness, service, etc., of a nice B&B, but with more separation and space for the guests. It's also in an old neighbourhood, near the intersection of Sacramento and Pine Streets, so still very close to downtown, making walking quite easy if desired. Downtown is actually just a short few blocks a way down a fairly quiet street.
Directions: From Hwy 49, take Sacramento St. exit, go west, up the hill, and it's on the left. From downtown, take Pine Street south, across the bridge, up the hill to the oddly shaped intersection with Sacramento, go straight/right, and it it's on the left.
