Why Are We So Green?

The Pacific Blue Inn exceeds California’s stringent green standards. It was built with non-toxic long lasting blue wood and utilizes recycled, reused, and reclaimed construction materials and hotel dècor. Water is precious so we’ve installed the latest lower water use fixtures and equipment throughout the building which, even though they save water, don’t give up the luxury  that higher water pressure valves provide. Non-toxic paints and cleaning products mean we eliminate any harsh chemical pollutants. We utilized renewable bamboo flooring and energy efficient lighting and appliances to reserve our natural resources. Reducing carbon footprints is easily achieved with our central downtown location.

Wheelchair Accessible

We have an elevator that services all three floors. Three of our nine rooms are totally wheelchair accessible. Two of them have fold down shower seats and three of them have grab bars around the toilet, in the shower, ajustable hight shower heads and full clearance under the sink for wheelchair access. See our Galley for pictures of the room which will show you which room numbers that have these features. All nine of our rooms have “wheel-in” showers. If you’re disabled and need something “special” just give us a call and we will do our best to accommodate you.
