Came from Dever, Colorado with my husband a 4 year old. This was a present from my husband grandmother. I am a saver so this would not have been my 1st pick because of the price. Also in this review you will see how "cheap" i am but with a husband who has a great appetite and a 4 year old where going out to eat all the time is the top choice, well you'll see where i go with this.
1st the bad which isn't bad just more inconvienant. So we stayed here for 4 nights. Due to plane arrangements we had to come a day early and stay somewhere else since there were no rooms available. Compare the room at the dream inn and at this other place we stayed at i would pick this other place just because of the size of the room was much bigger, bathroom was bigger and included a HUGE fridge and microwave. The room at the dream inn was average, very clean and regular size of any regular hotel room. The fridge was very small I am assuming because they would rather you buy from their resturant than keep left overs to save money. By the way the restaurant is very expressive and room service charges 20% onto the bill. Also there is no microwave in the room I am assuming for the very same reason as stated about the fridge. There was one on the 4th floor anyone in the hotel could use but the rotator did not work and burned the food.:-( The other hotel also had a very good free continental breakfast that would have been nice everyday. The price was good at 100$ a night. The only downfall to this other hotel is we had a nice view of the bush outside.
Thus moving onto the pros of this hotel. The view is AMAZING! I don't know if I could go to the coast and not find a hotel right on it. I loved, loved, loved the sound of the ocean and the seals everyday. The other thing about the hotel that was amazing was the swimming pool. We went for a swim after dinner every night we were there. The 85 degree year round pool was nice on those kinda chill october nights. I love the fact that we could go from the beach, to the stairs to shower and then go up the stairs to jump in the pool. Glass all around the sitting area so sitting in the chairs feels like i was on the beach. The staff was very nice, asking if we knew where to go and suggesting areas. The room is cozy and clean, the staff will change sheets upon request. We were also able to check in around 3; my 4 year old was done for the day so we called ahead of time. We were able to do this only because i'm sure the time of year and that the only rooms they had available was on the 1st floor which was fine. It still was an amazing view and i didn't have to worry about my 4 year old irritating the people below us.
All in all I enjoyed it and would stay there again. It became a nice place to come back to after a long day out and about; will be missed. Only complaints would be to have at least a bigger fridge, maybe a microwave but I think most people who come here either don't have kids or are not as cheap as me, lol. Thank you dream inn for a wonderful first family vacation
