I was VERY pleased with my ocean front view! If it was not for that though I am not sure I would stay again. My bed sheets and underside of comforter had what appeared to be dog hair all over it! When I spoke to the front desk they advised be dogs are not allowed on the 2nd floor. Well... More

We stayed just one night but will come back again soon. Our room was amazing! An oceanfront room with a lovely sitting room and fireplace. Love the Keurig and Philosophy bath products. And it was spotless and so nice after the long week we had just had...Checking in was a breeze, and the manager Jason greeted us personally. There is... More

Only stayed one night as part of a coach tour, but would recommend. Motel style, large clean rooms, super comfy beds and excellent bathrooms and mini kitchenette area with coffee and refrigerator. Staff all very friendly and helpful and coastal views are breathtaking. We ate in the restaurant and had a great meal - again amazing views and friendly staff.

My family and I stayed here in March of this year for a week. It was more than pleasant. The housekeepers were awesome and the overall staff was great. When we needed help finding something they were more than willing to assist. The location is the best! I will be having my wedding in California this coming year and because... More

Stayed here and had breakfast and Dinner in the evening. Could not fault any of the meals and service, highly recommended. Views and atmosphere were excellent. Very reasonable prices. Also liked very much accommodation very different from the norm. Kind of old fashioned but quaint. Especially liked own front door.

We booked a one night stay at the Spyglass Inn. We did not book an oceanfront room since we were only planning to be in Shell Beach for one night. This hotel is in a beautiful location. There are picturesque bluffs and walking trails along the beach that make for excellent photo opportunities. The hotel also has a restaurant with... More

We stayed there for one night, check in was good and the girls on reception were nice. We got a decent room with a balcony which from the side, you could see the sea. The room consisted of two double beds with a nice coffee maker. Room was nice and clean and couldn't fault it. There are a few shops... More

We stayed here in July 2014 for two nights. We had two rooms with adjoining doors for two adults and two children. The rooms were clean but basic. We did not have a sea view because we needed adjoining rooms. I would imagine those rooms that did have this view were better as the hotel is right on the beach.... More

We stayed at this hotel one night, Labor Day Sunday, and were very disappointed. At check in, a clerk without much knowledge of the area recommended "Denny's" for dinner, as it was 9:00pm already, and he did not know that there were good restaurants in San Luis Obispo, 12 minutes away, still open. The room we were given was smelly... More

The room exceeded our expectations. It may look like a motel style inn, but the interior was far better than a "motel." Our partial ocean view was on a corner so we got to see a little more ocean than we thought, but we regretted not getting the full ocean view. It was Labor Day weekend so the price was... More
