If you HAVE to have wi-fi, telephones in your room and a television, do NOT go here! BUT if you want to read a good book, watch the waves or walk on the beach; if you want a good breakfast, hot or continental (both are included in this B&B); if you love coffee and tea; if you love good conversations...

I've stayed in more hotels than I can remember. Most have boring breakfasts, cookie cutter decor, standard beds, same furniture, carpet, so-so views, small pools, etc. Typical economy oriented rooms, nothing outstanding or memorable. Also, no interest to mingle with other guests, let alone strike up a conversation. I never 'wandered' around a hotel ENJOYING it. I would check into... More

My husband and I went to the Sylvia Beach Hotel for part of our 10 year anniversary trip. It is a sweet, charming and relaxing place. We stayed in the J.K. Rowling room and although it was quite small for two people, it was very interesting. Every inch of the room was decorated in Harry Potter style. We loved it!... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay; it was peaceful, comfy and charming. Each room is decorated and named after a literary American book author. That was cool! To add to your visit, they have an open door policy for unreserved rooms allowing guests to checkout what other rooms look like and guests could enjoy watching sea lions... More

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel three times and I can see us staying thirty more. Wandering the halls, reading the guestbooks with their incredible stories, exploring the rooms and all detail that goes into them. Then just lazily reading throughout the day. The staff is wonderful, the food is a delight and the entire experience is... More

This is the first time we've stayed here, and we'd heard so much about it. We loved: 1. The meals (we had 2 dinners as well as 3 breakfasts here.) You're in table groups of 8, and at dinner are encouraged to play "Two Truths and a Lie" with your table mates. It was a lot of fun, and kept... More

I've been going to the Sylvia Beach Hotel for many years, and it's a great place to read, do quiet projects, and reflect. I've just returned from three nights. I stayed in the Shakespeare room one night and the J.K. Rowling room two nights. The Shakespeare room is roomier, and I really enjoyed it. But, I'm a long-time fan of... More

We had a disappointing experience. Got there shortly before dinner and went up to the library. No fire in the fireplace, no spiced wine, no anything. Just cold and dark and we were totally ignored. No Christmas decorations even though there in mid-december. There was junk sitting around. The desk personnel were totally unhelpful and not service oriented. Been here... More

This unique hotel is unlike any other - it is a true "getaway," with no phones, wifi or television. What it does have in abundance is atmosphere, a fabulous library where guests have full access to all the books and where spiced wine is served every evening. The gourmet breakfast is included, and reservations are recommended for dinner. Every one... More

Driving through, discovered the Hotel... simply wonderful. My husband went into shock for a short while when he discovered they have no TV, or WiFi.. but he ended up loving our stay. Beautiful location overlooking the Ocean, and the breakfast was great. Would love to see some coffee in the Lobby area for those of us that have a difficult... More
