We stayed here one night on our way up the coast to S.F. Wish we could have stayed longer! Our large room was ocean front, had a fireplace and spacious bath with tub & shower. The beach and boardwalk across the street were beautiful. Clean, clean rooms with comfortable bed & pillows :) It was a little blustery the evening... More

Employees at The Little Sur Inn went above and beyond the norm to make our trip a success. We had a mix up on our reservation and our trip could have been a disaster. They were so helpful and accommodating and we had a fantastic trip

The Little Sur Inn was pleasant, the room was nice enough, the beds were comfortable. Walking across the street you could walk along the beach. We went over and enjoyed the sunset. It was cold, but we had fun. The only place that needs a lot of improvements is the breakfast buffet. It was pretty small and unimpressive.

We stayed for 2 nights in room 24, and were thrilled with our stay. We selected the Little Sur Inn in part because their price was the lowest of all the places we checked on Moonstone Beach. Looking at the picture on Google Earth, I was a little underwhelmed by the appearance of the building, and thought that we might... More

Not the most impressive place driving up, but the view of the sunset over the Pacific from the Oceanfront room was amazing. We sat on our patio with a glass of wine and watched the sun go down. The room itself was large, well furnished, with a gas fireplace. The bath was large with both shower and a jacuzzi tub.... More

We stayed at Little Sur Inn for two nights on a road trip from Malibu to San Francisco. The room was large, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was nice. The room included a fireplace, mini fridge, and microwave. The breakfast and afternoon snacks were good. The inn was just a short drive from Hearst Castle. We enjoyed the... More

Great place! We keep coming back whenever we need a break. Splurge on the Oceanfront room after a day of exploring you can relax and enjoy the sunset from your balcony. If it gets to cold, turn on the fireplace and sit inside. Beautifully decorated rooms come with a mini fridge and microwave. The Moonstone beach boardwalk is right across... More

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Our fireplaces are especially appreciated on those chilly nights. We are also getting alot of compliments from our guests on the new glass panels we have put on the balconies, which replaced the old metal railings. Many guests' are finding that the glass panels not only provide a better view of the... More

We stayed there for one night and it was just plain nice and relaxing. The hotel is right on the ocean front and there's a long wooden walkway along the beach with an awesome view of the ocean plus of course the beach itself. It's central coast so it may not get sunny until the afternoon and we needed sweatshirts... More
