Everything was easy. Check-in was a breeze and when the desk clerk stated a higher price than I expected, I gently reminded him that mine was a TravelZoo reservation where he could wave the resort fee, and he promptly removed the extra charge. Room was pretty good. The fridge/freezer was larger than expected and came in very handy. King bed was ok. Could go for a new mattress or some kind of topper, but that didn’t impede my getting a good night of sleep. The proximity to hwy 101 was super close and convenient. The flip side is hearing hwy noise, which wasn’t bothersome for me. All in all, I would stay again.

I enjoyed the large room and firm mattress. On the negative side, my A/C would not stay on consistently. I was told that that it was old and I had to turn it all the way down. My TV reception was poor.

Cute hotel. The staff was very nice and helpful. The pool/spa area was clean. My only complaint was the mattress was obviously very well broken in (noticeable indentations on each side from a lot of people sleeping on it). But, besides that everything was good.

Used a TravelZoo Voucher. Easy to book, hotel followed up request for ADA room and confirmed all rooms by phone and email a few days in advance. Check in and out were easy. Rooms were very nice, loved the barn door at the bathroom entrance. All in our group were very pleased and happy with stay at hotel. Did not use breakfast option as it wasn't what we wanted. Coffee setup in room good and lots more coffee in Hotel Lobby. All employees encountered were friendly and helpful. Nikoi in reservations was especially helpful on the phone with questions.

The picture of the place was NOTHING like what Travelzoo shows on their sight. We feel SCAMMED. The Sideways Inn was UGLEY.

Of the four front desk staff I interacted with, only one was friendly and didn't make me feel I was interrupting them.
