We really enjoyed our stay. Very welcoming, informative, and generous. The room was nicely kept and very clean. The amenities were nicer than what we received at the Disneyland Grand Hotel for twice the price! We really enjoyed breakfast. They had a really nice assortment of pastries, fruits, quiche and breakfast cereal which made it perfect for the adults and... More

One of the many standouts of this hotel is Frank and Christina!! I believe Frank is the owner, and he was very welcoming and full of enthusiasm. Christina checked us in when we arrived, and she was very nice and full of energy as well!! The hotel is located by the beach, which is a great location, but it's not... More

Husband and I stayed here for two nights on a quick getaway. We had a lovely time! As others have said, Frank the owner is very hospitable and has tons of great recommendations and coupons. State Street and the Pier were a quick bike ride away and the beach/bike path are just two streets over. Room was very clean and... More

Reasonably-priced for the accommodations, Inn at East Beach is located close to the beach and within walking distance of the boardwalk/pier. You're not getting a 4-star hotel, but you're also not paying those rates. What you get is a friendly staff, clean rooms, a good free breakfast, excellent parking, soft beds, cable, and a generally quiet sleep. In addition, they... More

At first we were alarmed by the low price however based on other reviews here we opted to try it. I am glad we did, this was one of our favorite hotels on our trips which consisted of other hotels nearly 8 times the price. First of all, great location. Just across from the beach and bicycles and other beach... More

Frank makes this place! From the minute we arrived he was super friendly and made us feel right at home. The Inn is just a short walk across the street from the beach. State Street is in walking distance or a quick cab ride away. Rooms were clean and big. Would stay here again!

We arrived and were greeted with a friendly manner. We had requested NO stairs to the room, and were informed one room had no stairs and the other had about 7 steps down to the room. We request this as my husband had back surgery, and there was no help with luggage. We did believe that this hotel was a... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking a moment to leave us your feedback! I am so very sorry to hear that you did not truly enjoy your time with us! It is rather unfortunate that our property is located on a hill, forcing us to utilize numerous sets of stairs, even on the first floor. This makes it so that... More
