Good location. Mel's Diner is "next door."

Pros: Basic, but clean. Good location for me.
Location: At the Marina area. Appears to be in a very "active" area (beach; grocery stores; restaurants; near the water). Ft. Mason wedding/reception, for me.
Basic lodging. Didn't know (nor was advised), of "breakfast room," (coffee etc). Easy to locate and readily accessible.
