We stayed in room 200, corner room on the second floor with a great ocean view. We enjoyed being right on Moonstone Beach for the walk on the boardwalk, access to the beach, sunset and sunrise. Sleeping to the sound of waves breaking on the beach is the best. Breakfast was terrific - hot egg and ham wraps delivered to the door at 7:30am so we could get on our way. If we pass this way again we'd go back.

We drove up the coast of California for a day of rest. We randomly picked the Blue Dolphin Inn. Our room was titled partial view of the ocean but it was a great view. The room was clean & just what we needed. The room did have a little bit of a misty smell but just due to moisture being so close to the ocean. Location is right across the street from the sea.

Blue Dolphin Inn is the 7th hotel that my Husband & I have stayed at on Moonstone Beach, and so far, is our new favorite. We had a downstairs room that faced the ocean and a large patio with comfortable patio furniture. Worth every penny. Large comfortable room, excellent quality bed, pillows and sheets. Comfortable seating. Nice quality amenities and plenty of them. The bathroom was amazing and large with a beautiful separate shower stall and jetted tub. We greatly appreciated the "adults only" vibe too... The only thing that would have made our stay absolutely perfect would have been access to an outdoor jacuzzi for relaxation and socializing.

rooms need upgrading. Paint was chipped, screen door on our patio had a big hole, coffee pot did not work. Morning staff was supposed to arrive by 7 AM but did not show up until almost 8. To say the woman that finally did arrive was unfriendly would be an understatement.

Great modern inn. Clean. Pillow top mattress super comfortable. Pretty decor. Ocean is across the street and we watched the sunset easily. Can walk to restaurant close by (Moonstone Beach Bar and Grill). Parking is in the back of the inn and plentiful.
