Spectacular views from the bluffs will ressonate in my mind for some time to come. Shell Beach lies below with tide pools and refreshing coastal breezes. Hotel accommodations exceeded my expectations with well appointed rooms with tasteful, modern furnishings. Even the bathroom had nice design and lighting that was perfect. Surprised there were Kerig coffee makers in the room and... More

Beautiful gem I found. Get an ocean view room or partial ocean view. Hotel restaurant was extremely nice sitting outside. Very quiet and elegant people. Great views. From the street doesn't look like a gem, but the ocean side makes up for it.

We had a room overlooking the ocean, and found the staff to be thorough and pleasant and met every need and question we had. We plan to return and when we do, this is... More

The Spyglass Inn was recommended by a family member for its beautiful views and good price. Upon arrival the staff was friendly and the facilities were beautiful. Upon going to the room, I was met with a strange smell in an average-at-best room but that was eradicated by opening up all of the windows and doors for several hours. However,... More

Great palce to stay. Hotel is wonderful. Very friendly staff. Loved the location. Nice access to Shell Beach. Be sure to get a Full Ocean View. It is worth it. The views are wonderful and you can hear the ocean. Can't wait for the opportunity to come back. Great value with their 20% off promotion.

At $254 per night we were excited to be able to book a first floor Ocean View King w/Fireplace room for a 3 night stay at the end of our vacation. We read that the room had been recently remodeled and the online photos looked great. Boy the reality was quite a disappointment!! Our room had numerous unfinished constructions issues,... More

Have been going to Shell Beach since the 50's but never stayed at Spyglass Inn. Great location, beautiful view with oceanfront room, very helpful front office staff, & good food at the restaurant. Would recommend this place.

From the road this Hotel looks like your standard Motel, if you are lucky enough or book a sea view room, then Wow, not only the very high quality of the room contents and size, which rival any 5 star Hotel, the view and the sound of the crashing sea, is breathtaking, this is the perfect stop for anyone driving...
