Great view. Great room that is extremely well-appointed and spacious. Loved it. Amenities include microwave, mini-fridge, and plates etc for four. July 2014 We stayed on the 2nd floor - have looked at the other two rooms upstairs. Any would be great. The fog horn mentioned by many was not a big deal to us. It fades into the background....

We stayed in an upstairs room with king bed, deck with nice chairs, fireplace, fridge, microwave and nice amenities. Beautiful views of the bay and ocean. Listen to the fog horn in the distance. Watching the birds diving into the bay which was filled with anchovies and the fishing boats coming and going from the harbor. Walking distance to nice... More

Was delightfully surprised at how beautiful my room was! Felt completely spoiled here... Brought my pup; stayed in the Flat Rock Suite. Had a private grassy patio complete with lounging chairs and table to watch the sunset :) Housekeeping was so friendly and accommodating. Innkeeper, Melissa Rey, was a delightful as they come! ...even had a doggie basket waiting for... More

The room is lovely, the view is fantastic, the location is great for those who like to be near, but not in, the busy tourist area. The only negative is the fog horn which blasts every 10 seconds, 24 hours a day. The weather was cool during our stay, so we closed the harbor-side door and windows at night. With... More

My husband and I stayed two nights in the Dunes Room on the second floor. We arrived after 9pm and never interacted with owners or staff which was fine. We enjoyed the room size and location. The fog horn was pleasant, frequent but subdued. We liked the spaciousness of the bathroom and large tub. We were excited to try the... More

We stayed in the Montara suite, and were very pleased with the accommodations. The room and bathroom are both quite large. The king bed was comfortable and the room has a sitting area, bar and table and chairs. We really didn't get to take advantage of the balcony as much as we would have liked, but it was really fun...

The Inn at Mavericks is a great place to get away. Very quiet, with each room having a great view to the bay. Close walk to nice restaurants and beach. The Montara Suite was great. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

I thought this place would be a bit horrible, but entered the room and it is absolutely lovely. The view was terrific, and the foghorn is NOT a problem at all, despite what others may have written. Took our morning coffee outside to the firepit. wonderful stay!!

Visited here for one night on a cross country auto trip. Must say that the room was very comfortable and the view over the water very relaxing. Service really wasn't an issue since there was nobody in site from the time we arrived to the time we left the next morning. As there are only six rooms at the inn,... More

What a find. There are only six rooms so total privacy. The rooms are amazing with a small kitchenette area roomy..best part was the balcony. Right in the bay the water comes up to the stone wall the foghorn makes it like a Stephen king movie lol. Just amazing a key is left to ensure privacy there is a small... More
