It is a nice, small, offbeat and unique place. Each room is individually decorated. The staff is friendly. The rooms are clean. The rooms are also very tastefully decorated.
Small, independent places have their quirks. I appreciate them and roll with them. I got a call from an owner/operator day before the visit asking about my precise time of arrival. I told them it would be between 9:30 pm and 10 pm. Later, as I was navigating between and Uber and a rental car, I got another call essentially pressuring me to arrive ASAP and not past 10 pm.
Not wanting to be without a room, I had to abandon plans to get a late meal in La Jolla and had to rush up to Del Mar. I found this pressure to be unexpected and somewhat irritating.
They did allow me a slightly late checkout at noon instead of 11 am after a LOT of persuasion on my part. For that I'm grateful.
