We stayed for our 5th anniversary and it was really lovely! We were upgraded to a Honeymoon Suite (room 315) and couldn't have been happier with the ambience or the view of the harbor and ocean beyond. However, when it came to sleeping, we found the bed to be shockingly hard and uncomfortable which prevented resting well and we both... More

I was literally blown away by the standard of my amazing room! I had a balcony overlooking the marina, and sat out and watched the sun set. I was flying my little areal 'drone' and getting some beautiful shots, but arrived back at the hotel extremely cold. The bath was one of the best I have experienced, and I was... More

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel, its elegant, quiet and the service is impeccable. They couldnt have been more helpful. We enjoyed it so much we extended our stay by a couple of nights. Our room overlooked the marina and it was lovely to sit outside on the verandah and watch the boats going in and out of... More

Having a one night trip to a somewhat pricy hotel to find out they are having wedding PARTIES right outside your door until 11PM is NOT OK! They claim the noise doesn't usually bother people but they are obviously LYING!

All I had to do was stop in at the local Ritz, and be quoted a mid-week room rate of over $700, and this place was an absolute bargain at one third that! And it is a beautiful and total property as well, for that price. My room was a suite, overlooking the marina and harbor, no less. Fireplace, kitchenette,... More

We stayed at the cottages at the Oceano (the old Pillar Point Inn, next to the main hotel) for a quick romantic get-away. All-in-all, we were pleased with the stay. The Inn has been renovated, so the room was nice. Window seat overlooking the harbor, and a gas fireplace set a nice mood for the stay. Several nice restaurants within... More

We thought this place was a bit odd: The building was fine, as it looks in the photos, but it didn't quite have the atmosphere it seemed to promise. It was as though it was built to look old, but in fact it was regular, sterile and a bit plasticky, so not as lovely as we had expected. We had... More

On August 22 I called the reservation desk to obtain a Deluxe King Suite for our wedding anniversary celebration. For the one night it was $289 plus tax. On Groupon, I could have had the same room for $199, but sadly that rate was not available for the date I needed, so being a romantic person, I decided to pay... More

This is a beautiful place to stay. Unfortunately, we had not planned ahead (our own faults) and came in for one night when there was one available room. We were told we would be able to stay only that one night because they were booked up the following nights, and that we would be put in a nice room in... More

A unique place to stay if you need to get away. Wish I could of stayed longer. Great team of hospitality professions took great care of us. A delightful, refreshing escape that I plan on going back to. Almost wish I could move in it was that comfortable.
