Hotel room was very clean. Nice location directly across street from ocean with great views and local trails. Room and bathroom are average in design and stylings. Clean and open. If you're not in a hurry, I would pass on the continental breakfast for some of the better and tasty choices in town. Staff is friendly.

we had a large, seaview room on the ground floor. Worth paying extra for the seaview. The room was spotless and well appointed. The only small criticism would be that the large illuminated sign for the next hotel, the mariners in was brightly illuminated and a bit annoying. Breakfast was included and served near the lobby. the next door wasn't... More

For anyone looking for a one night pitstop as part of a Pacific Coast Highway road trip, this is a great place. We had a ground floor ocean view room which had its own patio with chairs to get a fantastic view of the sun setting over the beach (great skies in Cambria sunsets!). Rooms are large with a big...

We had 2nd floor ocean front view room and it was great! The whole front view was windows and our balcony was great for sitting to watch the sun set. Nice beach just across the road and down to the water. Nice pull down blinds to help sleep in a little but with the view we had, we rolled up... More

We were happy with room and lovely breakfast. We had a partial sea view from our room. The only negative for me was there wasn't any common area to sit with a coffee or wine and enjoy the beach. Other than that no complaints at all.

After being stranded overnight on the 101 on our honeymoon the owners of this lovely boutique hotel went above and beyond to be helpful. Not only did they not charge us for the night we missed but made us very welcome when we did finally arrive!! The room was large, spotless and lovely, the breakfast was fresh and plentiful and...

If you love looking at the ocean, this and Moonstone Landing are the places to stay. The Oceanfront rooms cost more, but have incredible views. We experienced one disappointment: They stopped serving afternoon snacks. Supposedly, this is to save water in washing dishes. But, if true, they could just use paper or plastic plates. I hope management is reading this... More

This hotel is clean and comfortable with friendly staff. We were not fortunate to get a room with a view as ours overlooked the car park, however this did not bother us as we were only stopping 1 night. Did think the breakfast could be vastly improved but then I suppose you get for what you pay for. This was... More

Disappointed in room 1 king bed for 3 adults. Must have shoes on in room otherwise your feet get black from the dirty floor. We had a 'partial' beach view but was okay. Be sure to ask for front rooms with balcony for beautiful beach view. Parking is minimal. Really cute & quaint.

Excellent place to stay. Clean and new and cozy. The afternoon cocktails were nice and the breakfast was continental but way beyond expectations. Fresh and a special touch. Bed was comfortable and it was a wonderful place to stay.
