Little Sur Inn staff were excellent, allowing early check-in and wine glasses for our room as well as restaurant recommendation. Room was large, well appointed, clean and a very large bathroom with jetted tub and separate shower. Enjoyed sitting on our balcony and sipping wine into the sunset. The fireplace was especially nice when it became too chilly to sit... More

I was originally hesitant to book a stay at this hotel because it only had a two star rating but booked it as they were the only hotel on Moonstone that had 2 queen beds available. It turned out to be the BEST CHOICE EVER. The room was quit large, very clean, and was decorated. There was no view but... More

It doesn't get much better than this for us. The Little Sue Inn provided us with a large, very clean, well appointed room with a balcony directly on the beautiful Pacific coastline for an affordable price. We had easy access to the boardwalk and the beach. We enjoyed a beautiful vista from pre dawn to fantastic sunsets and topped it... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our road trip to San Fran from LA. A cute place right on the water which we would have enjoyed spending more time at but we literally just slept there. The rooms are big with a nice fire place and hardwood floors. The receptionist did not seem enthusiastic to have us check in... More

We found this motel type low-rise place very pleasant, with spacious, well equipped rooms of a high standard. Easy to find (on the seafront) and ample parking, Good breakfast. Seafood restaurant next door is expensive, but deservedly popular. Service OK, but the lady at the desk leaves at 9pm.

The rooms are large and extremely clean. They are nicely appointed with comfortable furnishings. I had a partial ocean view and a wonderful fireplace that acts as the heater and is set by the thermostat. There is no air conditioning, but the breeze is wonderful. Th complimentary breakfast had nice variety.

Our room was large with a king bed and table in a nook area by the windows. The bed was firm and comfortable. We could hear and see the lull of the ocean waves since the Inn is facing the ocean. The whole building was freshly painted and in immaculate condition. It was obviously well maintained inside and out. I... More

We only stayed at this hotel for one night as we were travelling down the west coast but it was a massive room with an equally huge comfy bed. It is a little removed from the local places to eat but it is right on the beach so that more than makes up for it! Very friendly, helpful staff!
