We were lucky enough to book 2 nights here. It's beautiful. Right next to the beach! You can hear the ocean waves in the morning. We had a room in WindRush B (which is a separate building to he left of the main inn). Spacious room- the most comfortable bed sheets- older looking bathroom. A nice continental breakfast is delivered... More

We had never stayed at the White Water Inn until last week. We will definitely stay there on any future trips! The management was very friendly and informative on local "things to do" The room was updated, clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast was DELIVERED to our room at 0800! Coffee, fruit, OJ, muffins, bagels and all the condiments-wow! When we... More

This is a real gem. Breakfast in bed while the waves roll in. Walks along the wild shore. The best restaurant recommendations ever. Just perfect. The room was spotless but comfortable and relaxing. We had planned to visit nearby Hearst Castle but opted to open the windows and spend the afternoon in the room reading. It was that pleasant!

We flew into San Francisco and drove highway 1 down the coast to the Hearst Castle. I booked our room at the White Water Inn so we did not have to drive all the way back to San Francisco the same day. What a wonderful surprise and treat our stay was! We were given a free upgrade to a room... More

We've been coming to the WWI for 20 years, usually to celebrate our anniversary and sometimes just to get away and rejuvenate, love room 1 or 2, private picket fenced large porch with hot tub, room with an incredible ocean front view, couch with a bay window to look out at the ocean while eating breakfast served to your room...

Just after New Year, I flew from Indy to San Diego to help my daughter close up her condo, pack and make a move to San Fran. We decided to take the PCH to experience beauty of area but didn't anticipate the weather that moved in (rain, wind, clouds) so decided best option was to find place to stay and... More

The room was comfy and the fire place great for a cold and wet December evening. Our kids loved the popcorn with their movies and it made their evening. The sunrise and views are beautiful. The breakfast muffins were delicious. The staff was welcoming and helpful

So nice and comfortable, thanks to all the great staff too. The beds and pillows are the best and made for a restful sleep. Love being able to walk out and enjoy the scenery by the ocean. The sunset was magnificent.

Stayed at this nice cottage for my wife's birthday. Very quaint setting. Large room with partial ocean view. I like that this location is on the north end of Moonstone Beach so it is not stuck between the many side by side hotels along this road. Staff was very accommodating day and night. Continental breakfast was fine and brought to... More

Though far from fancy, the White Water Inn provided a charming, homey, and lovely atmosphere for us to spend the night in. The staff were friendly and knowledgable, the room was clean, and the ammenities were fun! All rooms have a gas fireplace (that keeps you very warm) and a Samgsung Smart T.V. Unlike most hotels where you have to... More
