From my first call to handing her back the keys this was my best experience on lodging on the coast by far.Great customer service, clean room, Wi-Fi included, could see ocean from my room, fell asleep in the sound of the waves, fridge in room, cable working fine, outstanding price/quality balance. The restaurant is top notch, make sure you have... More

Ted…You really pinpointed all the things that we love about the Oceanfront Inn and the Lost Coast. It is an amazing experience to drive down that scenic road and get away from the race of daily life. And you are so right …. Julie IS great. We are very fortunate to have her managing the Oceanfront Inn and making sure... More

Pleasantly surprise by the view at the Inn. Staff was very helpful and made our stay comfortable. The restaurant served an excellent seafood dinner. The cove was easy to walk around. The lighthouse was a plus feature. Will return for sure.

This was a beautiful hotel and the complimentary bottle of wine was a nice touch. We arrived there on a Wednesday night around 5:45 and no one was in the office but we were greeted shortly there after. We didn't have the luxury of the dining room since they were closed that day, as were all the other restaurants. Did... More

Have been to shelter cove before, this is the first time staying at this hotel. I was not disappointed the ocean view was excellent. Having the restaurant down stairs was a bonus. Will be back again next year. They also accept dogs, and have a extra towel and bag of treats waiting for your dog in the room when you... More

We stopped at Shelter Cove on the way up the coast and loved this place. Check in was a breeze and the staff were very welcoming and cheerful. The room was clean and the lay out was like a regular hotel room, but with a vaulted ceiling (we were top floor) and a fabulous balcony overlooking the sea. There was... More

We stayed in the recently renovated suite, with full kitchen, living room, and 1 bedroom. We had our own little patio off the back deck. We knew we had a full kitchen, so we brought our own food, and did all our cooking there. We enjoyed sitting out back watching the waves roll in, and actually saw migrating whales on... More

Everything was perfect. I have never stayed in man ocean front hotel room that was literally feet from the ocean! Sea breeze and ocean spray on the private patio and amazing views made this a once in a lifetime stay. Room was clean, comfy and in a subtle beachy theme.

We stayed on Thursday 5/8. This was a last minute reservation, after a bad experience in Eureka. We had no idea it was here. We saw a sign on the side of the road and Googled it. Oceanfront is AMAZING. We cannot stop talking about it. The room was wonderful with the vaulted ceilings and the whirlpool bath. The sound... More
