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

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

We decided to stop for a night here while driving home from a trip to Sausalito. The room was simple and clean. We just caught the sunset which made paying a little more for a balcony room facing the ocean worth it. About $150 before taxes isn't too bad. Free wifi is offer and they had cable tv but, watching... More

I stayed for two nights and the room was decent. However, I agree with some of the other reviews in the fact that the walls are thin and I'm not sure it's really worth the price. If you got a room with the view perhaps that's what's worth all the money but my room faced the pool and I happened... More

We stayed here for two nights. When we first arrived we were greated warmly at the Lobby and allocated our room and we were even offered complimentary cookies! When we got to our room we found it to be very nice and clean but would have liked a balcony and perhaps a sea view so we made enquires at the... More

I'm writing this review from the room. I've had no sleep because the walls are basically paper and I can hear everything the family next door are doing. They're not being overly loud, it's literally the fact that the walls are so thin that I can hear that the dad is worried that the child just flushed something down the... More

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
