Great location, for the price it is out dated. Definately in need of updating. The bottle water tasted like saltwater. We stayed in a queen room that you have to climb a stair yo a loft. Which was very stuffy. They are trying but we wouldn't recommend this to our friends and family.

This was our first stay at Timber Cove Inn. The location is spectacular and this is an ideal place to relax and unwind. The ocean views are beyond description. Everyone at the inn was friendly, pleasant and helpful. The service was excellent. I'm not going to review the rooms because the hotel is undergoing renovations with extensive work planned the...

I first drove by Timber Cove Inn sometime in the 1970's, with my sister. We were very young then and could not afford to stay here. I did, however, put it on my bucket list. Many years and many hotels later, I had a friend visit from Switzerland last month. I wanted to show her the California Coast, and Timber... More

As my husband and I were making our way up the coast from Santa Clara we found ourselves sleepy and in desperate need of a coffee. We drove past Timber cove and quickly turned the car around when we saw the sign for expresso. We were stunned at the beauty and location and asked about a room just for the... More

We have enjoyed Timber cove from the first years it opened. Back then it was a lone spot on the coast that inspired all who stayed to relax and take in the tranquillity and beauty all around. Then sadly it sank into a slow sad time where the owner did not spend a dime on the aging property. It was... More

This lovely hotel can be for any type of person or family and I happened to be there with my mother as a late birthday present.The unique attribute about this hotel is its placement: on the cliffside of the ocean. We had an ocean view room with a little patio where we sipped on midori margaritas and took in the... More

A lovely setting on its own right by the sea. The central lobby was a great room, albeit could have been improved by eg more of the sofas (rather than small tables and stools) to encourage more guests to dwell there and create more of an ambience (which was slightly dominated by 3 or 4 slightly noisy individuals sitting at...

The Timber cove Inn is located in a stunning location - high atop a bluff looking directly onto the ocean. We had an Ocean View room, which was very nice, and the view was lovely. The Reception staff was nice and helpful. The only downside is that this inn is understandably busy and the rooms are not very well insulated,... More
