My wife and I have stayed here on and off for over 25 years. Great views from the rooms facing the ocean (you must get one - call in advance). When we were there last ( early october) it was noisy (college kids partying), the pool was taken up by 3 moms and 6 screaming kids (all staying in one... More

Way too hot even in October. Rooms need updated with air conditioning, way too pricey for no ac. We had trouble sleeping with only box fan had to leave sliding door open for air. The view from cliff and stairs down to ocean are lovely. Rooms are clean and pool was okay.

We stayed at the Spyglass Inn, overnight, as part of our tour. The place is a little dated but clean and well kept and the location is quite and picturesque with well kept grounds and a pleasant coastal walk. We saw very little of the staff, due to the short stay, but those we did see were helpful and friendly.... More

My wife and I did the South West and Pacific Coastal Highway (PCH) tour back in September. We stayed at this hotel on our way to Monterey from Santa Monica. "Ocean" is the magic word in the PCH tour. So, we opted for a room with ocean view. Fantastic!! Just less than 30 meters from the coastline. We woke up... More

The place is old but clean the view is gorgeous the prices so right. There is a walk way to enjoy the ocean even more. The hotel next store was twice the price. We will come back here again. Next time we will spend more time here. Dinner AJ SPURS also a must!

Great view of the sea but the coffee maker doesn't work We could have enjoyed coffee while watching from the porch of our room I can't believe they have to charge you for the bottled water they should have it for free

Thank you for your comments. I apologize that your Keurig coffeemaker malfunctioned during your stay as enjoying fresh-brewed coffee while you relax to the sound of the ocean waves is truly a part of the experience that we offer to our guests. Your comments will help us improve our product and performance. Thank you for taking the time to share. More

The location is really beautiful as you are a two minute walk from the beach, a 5 minutes drive to other beach, great shops and food maket and the pool is great for families too. The hotel was a bit dated with their colour scheme, air conditioning unit. Unfortunately even though the hotel was pretty low on guests our sleep... More

This was a clean, comfortable place to stay. We were amazed at the wildlife one can see in the area. The Inn is on the cliffs. Amazing view and lovely place to watch the sunset. Nice for couples or families.

The carpet in the room was old and very stained. Other than that the room was fine. We plan to come back another time and will look for another hotel. Can't stand dirty carpets!!! Very good location, hope the owner pays more attention to cleanliness.

We stayed Thursday and Friday nights in an upstairs room facing the ocean. Spacious and comfortable, the room afforded welcome amenities - coffee, hair dryer, cable TV, Wi-Fi, refrigerator and a small balcony with seating and a table. The ocean view was magnificent and the balcony afforded a quiet place to take in the view. The only comfort factor was... More
