“Great Spot.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

We just rocked up with no booking and enjoyed the 1 night we had there.
The girls in reception were very helpful and the S'mores pits in the evening were a nice touch.
The beds were comfy and the bathroom had a super shower and it was very clean.
Good location with parking.
Good value, good location, good stay.

Nice hotel with pretty décor superbly located right across from the pier/wharf. Warning: you can hear karaoke on the weekends from the bar across the street, but it (thankfully) ends around 6 p.m. Nice pool, barbeque pit, extremely comfortable beds. In general, a good base from which to explore the surrounding areas (beaches, state parks, redwoods, etc.)

We stayed there for two nights. Great location, walking distance to beach and pier. Even though might be cloudy the sun hits the pool. Our room was directly facing the pool and you can sit outside and relax. The bathrooms were amazing with two showers in the same space, and tons of space around the rooms. Fridge available if you wanted to stay for a longer time and get something to eat. Again if you would like to walk around and have a central location with parking space this is it.

Room Tip: If you want to stay by the pool the rooms are cheaper than facing the ocean. Both views are fine.

We were so pleased with our recent experience at the Beach Street Inn. The recently remodeled rooms were fresh, clean and bright. A handwritten welcome note and bag of salt water taffy started us off on a great step. We stayed in a pool view room with two double beds with our two kids (7 and 10). While the room was a little tight for us and our luggage for our 12 day trip, it was totally manageable and such a great value. The pool was refreshing and styled very nicely with extra plants and bright, comfortable chaises. We walked to the Boardwalk for a really fun night and ate good pizza on our way home. The location is great - we parked our car the entire time. The time and care the owners have put into remodeling this inn has paid off. We would love to come back and stay even longer...would probably upgrade to an ocean view next time and take advantage of the grills. Don't miss the delicious food at the Picnic Basket. Almost all house made or locally sourced.

We has a wonderful vacation. We rented a suite that overlooked the pool. It was very clean and spacious. A full kitchen, new looking bathroom very cute. My husband and brought out 4 kids. An 11 year old twIn 3 year olds and a 3 month old baby and we all fit just fine. The location was awesome. A short walk to the boardwalk and the wharf. Tons of places to eat. We swam in the pool. I can't wait to come back again!

This review is specific to a single room available at this hotel, the 2 room suite. If you have a large group, this room might provide a more economical choice than several separate rooms. Since the room sites over the office, it does not share walls with any other room. Also, it probably has the best ocean view in the whole hotel. It has a very small kitchen with only the bare basics, and a very small 2 seat table in the kitchen. However, it has a large private outside patio overlooking the ocean with a large table for outdoor eating. This room has not had the same updating as the other rooms, so the decor is dated. However, overall I think this room is a good option for a family that wants to share meals and other experiences during their stay.

One issue - we arrived just after check in time and had to wait almost an hour for the room to be cleaned. They apologized and gave us a bag of salt water taffy to eat while we waited. The gesture was appreciated, I would hope they could upgrade the snack offering.

We spent two nights in the pool side suite. After a long drive from the state of Washington, we checked in to find a wonderful suite. The space was very tastefully done and quite nice for a room at the beach. The owners have done a great job of updating this inn. The bathroom alone was amazing with two shower heads. It is conveniently located on the boardwalk with plenty to do. I will be returning to this hotel in the future!

Room Tip: Pool side suite. Even if there is no beach view, still worth the booking. Especially if you have y...
