We stayed here for a long weekend and can't wait to go back again. We had one of the second floor rooms with a balcony overlooking the ocean and it was lovely. It was spacious and we really enjoyed having a fireplace in our room. Our only complaint was that the bed wasn't as comfortable as I would have expected.... More

My husband and I stayed here the week before Thanksgiving (I am just getting to writing this review) and this little Inn was great, especially for the price. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable and it looked like the room had recent updates. I loved that we could see the beach just across the street... More

This is a well run little inn on Moonstone Beach. The location is ideal across the road from the scenic boardwalk. The rooms are large and have all the usual amenities. Our partial ocean view room has a nice sitting area by a bay window. The price is very reasonable. This was our second stay here in the last 6... More

Nice large room with beautiful tiled bathroom. Room had a nice view of the water and was a great location for access to Moonstone Beach. The room is heated by a gas fireplace which was a little strange. The complimentary breakfast was also pretty limited.

One night stay at the Little Sur Inn. Room was very nice and very quiet (we were downstairs). Service was good. Breakfast was limited but pretty good. Location across from the beach is nice. Would recommend.

This hotel was exactly as billed: perfectly located, with lovely and large rooms that were tastefully decorated and complete with the amenities we all want. I spent two nights in an oceanfront room and was completely happy. The room was quite large, with a comfortable king bed, nice bedding, side chairs and ottoman, table and chairs, small frig and microwave,... More

Great little B&B on an oceanfront strip of road, right there along Moonstone Beach. Room 23 is just one behind the official oceanfront rooms and I'm not sure how much less of a view I really had, and for half the price of the front rooms. Sure, the fireplace is gas but the flame is real. Real warm, too, which... More

Very nice room, amazing bed, with little sitting area off to the side with a cozy fireplace. Continental breakfast was small / limited - but there is a nice little seating area. 2nd floor rooms have limited view of the Pacific. Short , easy walk across the road to the ocean. Very conveniently located near Hearst Castle, San Luis Obispo,... More

Rooms are very clean and large, service was very good. They advertise "fireplaces" but they are just tacky fake ones. Cannot open shades or windows in more reasonably priced rooms because they open to the parking lot. Continental "breakfast" is worthless.

My wife and I spent two nights away from LA area in late January at the Little Sur Inn. What a great location! Right across the quiet road from Moonstone Beach, you can walk directly across the road to a boardwalk that stretches the entire beach. It's also very easy to get down to the beach. The waves were huge... More

It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, there's nothing better than being able to enjoy the sound of the ocean from your room. The gas fireplaces in the rooms are definitely one of our guests favorite things about staying here. They not only heat the room, but provide a nice ambiance while doing so. We're glad you... More
