Fabulous place to stay. Clean room, comfortable bed, well maintained property. Walked on the beach, sat by the fire pits set up by the hotel staff.Everyone was friendly and helpful. 10 minutes away from Hearst Castle.

Fantastic place to stay. Doesn't look that great from the outside, but our room was amazing. Granite countertops, Keurig(sp), bottle water and much more. Front desk personnel were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is nice and food is good. Perfect place for visiting Hearst Castle and the elephant seal rookery. Highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there... More

Exceptional views and amenities. Very courteous staff. Will return @ a later date. The area is very convenient ly close to hearst castle. The review is too long and very annoying to have to put at least 200 characters

Love this place great location, great restaurant always my first chowder on my way to San Francisco! Friendly staff with nice rooms. At night they have fire pits near the beach you can sit listening to the surf rolling in and meeting people around the fire great added bonus. They even have rooms with a fire place in them.

This hotel looks nothing from the outside but the rooms are fantastic. Very spacious and we had a room overlooking the sea and the view was fantastic. Hotel offers everything. Staff very helpful and friendly. Would recommend but not much going on around.

Great place to stay with a pet. Very accommodating and lots of open space to walk around, including the beach at a lower tide. Rather pricey, but no sort of breakfast provided, except for coffee in the lobby.. Whales and pelicans were putting on quite a show. Weather was unusually warm and no wind

The rooms are all nice, but the oceanfront rooms are a special treat. The property has numerous benches and chairs for sitting on the bluff, and the light fire pits when the sun goes down. The outdoor seating is 30 feet from where the waves crash. Currently, you can see the humpback whales swimming off the coast! It's gorgeous, quiet,... More
