“Ideal stay for us”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011 via mobile

We were driving from LA to SF on highway 1 and wanted to stop near Hearst Castle. The property is right opposite the beach and although we didn't pay the upgrade for ocean view, we still had a partial view. The rooms all have fire places, and the bathrooms were huge and surrounded by marble. The receptionist, Mary, was extremely helpful. There were crackers, cheese, and olives in the lobby at check in, and we also took advantage of the free DVD movies in the lobby - each room has a DVD player. During our visit in Nov. The lobby was closed from 9 pm to 8 am, so keep that in mind.

We love staying at Moonstone Landing. We have stayed here at least three times and each time has been a great experience. The rooms and especially the bathroom are spacious and very clean. I do agree with other reviewers that upstairs is better. I have noticed some noise from the restaurant next door at closing but it didn't last very long so didn't bother me much. Besides I always wear earplugs so I sleep through it all. I highly recommend Moonstone Landing.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

We loved staying at this family owned hotel/motel on Moonstone Beach. We booked a downstairs room, the northern corner in the front (105) and it had a kind bed with the jacuzzi bath and faced the ocean. The first night I heard a lot from the room above, but wearing earplugs the other 3 nights did the trick. Earplugs are highly recommended if you are a light sleeper.
The breakfast and the evening snacks were adequate. The only negative was the checkout time of 11:00 a.m. That is just unreasonably early. Our flight wasn't leaving until 9:00 that evening and even though we offered to pay to stay in our room until 5 (a half day's charge), the answer was NO. Our room was not taken for that Sunday evening, but they would not even consider it. They did allow us to check out slightly later, and the checkout was really the only negative. We would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: No elevator. First floor rooms hear the noise from above. If you don't turn off the DVD player...

We stay at this hotel all the time, and usually love it and the staff is always wonderful. But as other guests have mentioned, staying down stairs can be annoying and our amorous neighbors above us made the 3 am wake up call not attractive, not counting the turning on of the spa tub at before 6 am even more annoying. We will never stay down stairs again. The hotel is starting to get a little long in the tooth and could do with some maintenance. But will probably stay again as long as the room is upstairs.

This is our favorite place to stay for many reasons.Falling asleep in that big comfortable bed with luxurious sheets is oh so wonderful, two days here are as refreshing as a weeks vacation. The service is excellent, friendly and personal. Close to town and walking distance to restaurants. A quick drive to Hearst Castle and many wine tastings. No smoking (yay).
