We stayed in Room 3, a deluxe king spa room. It is located on the second floor, facing the front of the property and the ocean. It was wonderful to see the ocean from our window. Sadly, it was too chilly to use the (shared) balcony just outside our door. It does face the street, which didn't seem particularly busy, but we did hear some garbage trucks in the morning. We used our white noise app on the phones to drown out any potential street noise.
The room was quite spacious and well decorated. We opened the windows during the morning and day, but also used the fireplace to heat the room in the evenings. The bathroom is gorgeous and also spacious. Shower was great and soaking tub (with jets) was lovely.
We missed the wine hour, but availed ourselves of snacks left out before (cookies) and after (cake). Breakfast was yummy.
They were offering a fall discount (25% off the room).
Parking is included.
Location was amazing. In the morning, after breakfast but before checkout, we walked down to the beach in front of the boardwalk. We walked to the lighthouse (20-30 minute walk each way) and saw grey whales! We also saw many harbor seals swimming by on our way to and from the lighthouse.
We would have liked to stay longer!
Also, don't miss Natural Bridges State Beach, just a few miles down the road. We were able to see the monarch butterflies arriving in larger numbers (on their migration route). We visited at low tide and also really enjoyed the large tide pools.
