Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

Great location and great service, kids love the heated pool. Complementary breakfast was great, we stayed two days it was the same both days, we would not have had it the third day. It was only 10 minutes from Hearst castle. Great trip, good memories thank you.

Hotel is always a great stay. Been coming here for years. Rooms are clean, heated pool and spa, breakfast is awesome. Beach is a stone's throw away. Only negative was the shower head-it's so high up that there's almost no pressure if you are trying to rinse shampoo out of long hair! Kind of felt like we were wasting water....

Hotel has great location. Right across the street from Moonstone boardwalk and tidepools. Full breakfast included in rate, was nice and made our morning easy and seamless. Internet and phone connection was spotty so a bit inconvenient, but "made you" unhook for a bit which is also a good thing! Rooms are okay, a bit run down in the bathroom....
