Vacation Thoughts?

So I am sitting here on this ugly, gray, wet winter day, thinking it's time to plan a summer vacation.   I am really thinking USA this year, as last year we went to Europe and it was a fortune.  Thinking California for that matter.  Thinking Marin County, Bolinas for that matter.  Scoping out Tripadvisor which is usually my bible when I have such thoughts and scoped this review out for one of the FEW hotels/B&B's/whatever in Bolinas.  Enticing!  Honestly I laughed out loud at this one..

“Dirty sheets, but close to the beach”

This was an AWESOME place about 4 years ago. Now it's run by the son of the previous owners. He is REALLY nice, and REALLY odd (keep in mind this is bolinas).
The Pros: Incredible location. Charming building and rooms. Nice guy.

The Cons: Owner's son lives in the garage and is really odd. Likes to walk around with his shirt off (he really shouldn't) and is suddenly standing behind you when you least expect. He also probably does the housekeeping (and not very well). The linen closet is a mess and the sheets and blankets were probably fantastic 5 years ago.

It's cheap (sometimes), since he makes up the prices as he goes. It's a great location, but I'd bring a sleeping bag!

The restaurant closed a few years ago, there is no breakfast and his cat lives in the kitchen.

Stayed July 2010, traveled with family
