Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our West Coast tour. The welcome we received was warm and friendly. We stayed in the Eastwood Suite, which was spotlessly clean and had the added bonus of a separate lounge area. We needed help with a local taxi firm and it was no problem to the Ladies there, they arranged... More

Would definitely go back to Happy Landing Inn. As you arrive you are greeted by the most friendly ladies, and you walk back to your room through a beautifully manicured garden. Once inside the room, we rented a king room with a Marilyn Monroe theme, you have all of the comforts of home. Including a decanter of Sherry. It also... More

Kind of quirky, no doubt. Very unique. Close to the shops and restaurants. Inn keepers are extremely friendly and hospitable! Delicious breakfast brought right to our room every morning. Parking is a minor problem. Most parking is on the streets near-by. Be sure to get a parking pass from an inn-keeper so that you can park legally. This is a... More

I stayed at the Happy Landing Inn this past weekend and will always stay here when traveling to the area. The staff is incredibly nice, friendly and welcoming. The property is lovely with small cottages circles around a lush green lawn and patio with a fireplace. I stayed in the Hemmingway room. It was small and might be tight for... More

Quiet secluded courtyard setting. Very helpful and courteous staff. We have been staying here for many years, in part due to the professional nature of staff. The rooms and grounds have been upgraded and each room now has a movie star theme. Dawn, a long standing staff member has helped make our stays enjoyable and trouble free.

We honeymooned at the Happy Landing 33 years ago and continue to keep coming back. Everything was recently remodeled and they did a great job. The rooms are clean and charming. We are always made to feel welcome. Easy walk to shops, restaurants and the beach. Beautiful garden to relax in.

Great value for your money. The persons that attend this little hotel are very kind. The rooms are in perfect conditions. The hotel is very well located. Kids are welcome, and that is highly appreciated.

I am sure that Dawn, the manager of this place will rush to respond to this review with her stock reply to all less than favorable reviews that “We are sorry that the Happy Landing Inn was not a good match for this guest”, but I’m afraid that that is not good enough. I wish I had the contact info.... More

We stayed here 4 nights in a suite with a fireplace. We were celebrating our 40th anniversary and we were welcomed with a bottle of Mumm Champagne. The staff, Sandy, Dawn and Astavia were so hospitable and made us feel welcome every time we saw them. The breakfast that was brought to our room each day was delicious. We really... More

We had a wonderful experience here. Clean, beautiful grounds, quiet with great location and a true B&B feel down to the crystal decanter of a tasty sherry for a nightcap before bed. And the 3 lovely ladies who we available from check in to out we not only lovely to chat with, but dog lovers all! This will definitely be... More
