My girlfriend and I chose Tickle Pink Inn for a romantic weekend away. The location of the hotel facilitated beautiful views of the Pacific coastline. The included breakfast as well as the wine and cheese reception were amenities that separated Tickle Pink Inn from other hotels in the area. In addition, the hotel was able to coordinate with myself and... More

My son and I arrived at Tickle Pink Inn on December 31st, after a long journey, without reservation and were surprised with a recent cancellation of a room and the opening we were aiming for. All sides of the Inn have gorgeous views to the Pacific. Great wine and cheese at sundown, aside from a rich breakfast everyday. Aside from... More

I am glad you enjoyed Room #25. I love the layout of the room and even though it is sold as a partial view, the view is still quite impressive. The cookies are a great hit as well! We hope to see you again. More
