These individual cottages were a grest find. They were in a great location across from a boardwalk that runs along the beach. The room was quaint, freshly painted with a flower box under the window. The proprietor was most helpful with a map of the town & suggestions for places to eat & freshly baked cookies. Two outstanding services were... More

We had a wonderful time at your Inn and really appreciate that we were able to bring our dog. Your staff was very helpful with dinner recommendations. Loved that your Inn is just across the street from the ocean. We will DEFINATELY stay here on our next visit.

We stayed at the White Water Inn for 1 night on our drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles! It was perfect! The room is a good size and the breakfast in the morning is good. We saw whales right in front of the Inn in the morning which got the kids very excited! I imagine room numbers 1 &... More

Hi, I have travelled a lot in the US and have stayed at many places. This place is really great and showed me how important it is that family owned business must survive in the world hotel chains. We were staying with our three children and we had a wonderful experience from being so close to the beach and the... More

This is a fabulous place to stay. We were travelling up the California coast and this is a real gem. The individual cottages are fitted out well and the location is just perfect. The staff were particularly helpful in providing recommendations for places to eat etc. Would definitely stay here again. White Water Inn is great value too.

My husband and I stopped here for a night on our drive to San Francisco. We absolutely loved our time and stay at the White Water Inn. After a long drive, this place was quiet, calm and relaxing. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They were eager to give us recommendations for around the area and even tips for... More

As a family of 4, with two daughters, aged 15 and 18, from the UK, we all loved this accommodation. Unlike most of the places we stayed during our trip, a wonderful breakfast was included in the room rate - brought to your day - what a treat! The staff were friendly and accommodating, and we loved all the little... More

White Water Inn is just across the road from a boardwalk along the Pacific shore. The room I was in had many nice details - fine basic accommodation but also nice touches like furnishings with style. Wifi can be a problem in this region but worked well here. Very friendly people running the Inn. I would stay there again!

This was our 2nd night away on 5 night trip up the coast from Orange County (home) to Carmel and back. We only considered pet friendly hotels as we were traveling for the first time with our 2 year old pit bull, "Kahlua", so White Water Inn made the list. I picked it because it had "9 stars" on one...

We loved the coziness, and the proximity to the ocean and Hearst Castle. Everyone was very friendly, and the free breakfast was great. But, and this is a big but, our shower was soooo bad we couldn't get enough water pressure to actually wash anything, and the water was either scalding hot or freezing cold. Since no one who works...
