Reviewed yesterday NEW

Although we had full ocean view, we could not enjoy a full sunset from the private patio due to the landscape. Yes this is not the property's fault, but what they charge for a full ocean view room should reflect this downside. The walls are very thin, so most all activities in next door and upstairs, such as showers, bathroom...

We enjoyed the room, the view from the front of motel and the back, the breakfast and the friendly staff. Beds were comfortable and we both slept well. Service accessory, fresh fruit in the office--and cookies- were greatly appreciated.

Although our room was not facing the ocean, there are two public patios that do. We had wine there and breakfast in the morning. They lent us wine glasses to use during our stay. Room was big and very comfortable with a fireplace. Boardwalk is right across to beach. Breakfast was more than just coffee and cereal. They had eggs,...

We loved being just steps from an inviting seaside boardwalk and within walking distance of great restaurants (Sea Chest is one; Indigo Blue in town is another). The inn's gracious staff and nice touches (lap blanket, pool, hot tub, complimentary breakfast and fresh cookies and coffee), the immaculate and spacious rooms near their manicured gardens made us feel very welcomed....

The staff were very nice, the room was great other than finding a mouse in the tub in the morning. I fully recognize things like this happen, yet when i called the front desk to send someone to remove it, no one came to clean the tub, therefore I did not get to take a show before leaving for the...

Very nice location and service. Dining room way too small and cannot accommodate everyone - suggest take and go boxes. Maids were very nice. Some lamps wouldn't work. King bed very hard/firm. Room was small, but overall - good.

We really enjoyed your property, has great views and all service staff including the General Manager Karen cartwright were very cordial and friendly. Great view and was nice to be able to walk on the path close to the Ocean. Convenient location to downtown and to Hearst Castle.

Nice location, average room and excellent breakfast. The floor was sticky carpet and the room needed lots of TLC! But for a quick trip to the beach it fulfilled my families needs. The staff was very nice.
