We love Moonstone Beach, so it's hard to not like this location. However, I'm 50/50 if I will come back to Little Sur Inn. We had to change plans on short notice, so this was available and less expensive than some other options, which was appreciated. However, the price cut

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Our family owned property takes a great deal of pride in providing a quality experience for our guests, we're sorry not everything met your expectations. As you mentioned, unfortunately some guests can be inconsiderate of those around them, we believe this was an exception as it is typically quiet at our 17 room property. We recently purchased all new high end mattresses for the rooms which our guests have been loving, we'll be sure to look at what otherwise could have been your concern. We hope to have another opportunity to provide you with a more quality experience in the future and turn your 50/50 into a 100! Warm Regards, Little Sur Inn

It's been my belief that if were staying at the coast for a short visit.. were staying beach front. In that case, were paying more but it's worth it. Little Sur Inn surpasses your beach front expectations! Cant go wrong with a full wall picture privacy window/sliding door of

Hi, are there hair dryers in the rooms? Thank you.
Just asked my wife and she said: "There will have been because I didn't take my hair dryer with me on that vacation" The Little Sur Inn is a great place to stay!
