Huge room with views of the ocean. Lovely staff & breakfast. Bed was super comfortable. The lady at reception gave us a map so we could have a look around. There is a lovely beach front walk, it was a bit windy but was great after a day in the car to stretch our legs.

We just checked out on Thursday and had room 16. It was very clean and had a partial ocean view from the windows. The room had a gas fireplace and was spacious enough for us including our 2 teenage children. The beds were comfortable. The staff was outstanding! Added bonus was a decent continental breakfast. The location is right across... More

Stayed in the front room overlooking the ocean, listened to the waves all night long, fireplace in the room controls the heat, free breakfast, very friendly staff, and walked along the coast and enjoyed the views, relaxed, next door is the seafood restaurant that is quite good, so nice.

This quaint B/B is located right on Moonstone beach, across from the beach and boardwalk. Room is very spacious allocated with a microwave and mini fridge. Our room had a partial view to the ocean but look directly towards the parking lot and the restaurant on the contiguous property. Front desk staff does not effort to make your experience great,...

Great location - right at the beach. Nice rooms, the fireplace kept the room real cozy and the breakfast was adequate. The best thing is, it is right next-door to The Sea Chest Oyster Bar & Restaurant - they don't take reservation or credit cards for that matter, but the food is really good. An easy ride up the road... More

I loved the spacious, ocean front room at Little Sur Inn. The room amenities were good and the view from the room amazing. We were also able to see squirrels from the room, running around on the boardwalk, followed by an amazing sunset. For the price paid, I would have liked a better breakfast rather than the self-serve cold buffet... More

A small setup just by sea with an amazing view! The rooms are very spacious with a fireplace. TV was nice and large with HBO and all the rest of the channels. Even though the view beats everything you see on tv, the tv helps when the sun has set, I am not ready to sleep but need to make... More

This place is lovely. We had a deluxe king room with a gas fireplace and partial ocean view. It was quiet and comfortable. Staff is friendly and professional. The continental breakfast had a good selection and was good quality. The restaurant next door is the closest, but with $63 crab legs, we decided it was worth it to drive into... More

It was one of the best rooms we have ever had. The breakfast was outstanding. Can't make any mistakes by staying here. The rooms were cozy with a fireplace, the bedding and towels were soft and the bed was very good. I would highly recommend Little Sur especially if you are going to the Heardt Castle.

We stayed for 3 nights. Had only thought we'd stay one night and then drive to Monterrey. We had a lovely room on the second floor overlooking the ocean. There was no air conditioning but it wasn't needed. Clean, comfortable bed, pleasant breakfast served.

We're delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your stay with us! Due to the very mild and moderate weather on the Central Coast, nobody has air-conditioning. We hope to see you again if you are ever in the area. Warm Regards, Little Sur Inn More
