We found a special deal on the Internet for this hotel located on the cliffs overlooking a nice tide pool/beach. View of the parking lot (I'd definitely recommend asking for a room in the building facing the ocean--fantastic views from all the rooms), unusable internet, ho-hum customer service. But the room was adequate and clean, the beds and pillows comfortable,... More

This July 2015 stay at the Spyglass was our third year in a row and my wife, daughter and I love this place and always have a wonderful stay. We love the second floor ocean view and this year our room was updated. The restaurant serves really good food and the housekeeping staff do an excellent job.

We wanted to celebrate our anniversary so we got the room with the balcony and the ocean view. Beautiful!! We sat on the balcony to watch the sunset every night. I think the place has been remodeled recently as the bathrooms looked updated. The hotel sits on a bluff, but there is beach access if you are adventurous and want... More

We have been coming to the Spyglass Inn for seven years.I found it by accident at first but after the 1st time, we have only stayed at one other location in the past 7 years. We like the pathway that runs behind the hotel and the adjacent properties and takes you to the stairs that lead to the beach. There... More

The room was clean and convenient to walk to. It's a short 5 minute walk over to the Dolphin Bay Resort, although you do have to meander through the parking lot. The pool is nothing to speak of, but it will keep your kids playing, and there's a hot tub for adults. :)

We were looking for the best combination of location and value and we settled on this hotel. We got the room for $144. Not ocean direct ocean view but we didnt get to the room until dark so it didnt matter. There was a great path you can take directly to the beach. The restaurant was marginal at best. We... More

We spent two nights at this Inn during the July 4th weekend, in a traditional double-bed room with no view of the ocean. While we found the room to be clean and well maintained for the most part, we did run into a couple of bugs here and there. The beds were comfortable. There was a coffee maker that worked... More

Although I certainly wish your experiences were more positive, I truly appreciate you taking the time to tell us about your visit to Spyglass Inn. We have worked very hard to renovate all of our guest rooms over the past 9 months, and for the most part, we have received very good comments about the new design. I do apologize... More

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

Wow!! Thank you for such an amazing review of your visit to Spyglass Inn!

I am forwarding your comments also to both the restaurant and our interior design team.... 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.
