In the Sylvia Beach Hotel, each room is themed to an author - Herman Melville, Jules Verne, J. K. Rowling, Dr. Seuss, and so on ... great fun, for the literary inclined. No electronics of any kind supported, bonus. Complimentary warmed spiced wine in the attic reading space, bonus! We stayed in the Agatha Christie room, and the level of... More

Stay in an Authors room without wi.fi, TV, or phones. Fabulous breakfast and family style dinners with such interesting people. Right on Nye beach too! Small room full of books. Third floor has a big lounge area to read or socialize.

Lovely, unique rooms, each named for an author. Wonderful wide beach at the hotel; many great hikes and three lighthouses 45 minute drive. Great dinner (optional) with local fish, veggies and fruits. Family style with a card for a "get to know you" game. My introverted wife was glad she had asked for a separate table. Breakfast is included; many... More

Kudos to the owner as he acknowledges in his narrative on the web site, that this place is not for everyone. This is as far as you can get from a "cookie cutter" chain hotel. I can see the appeal and met a number of guests who have been to the Sylvia Beach a number of times. The location is... More

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
