My husband and I stayed at the Tickle Pink Inn for 2 nights. This place is a perfect hidden gem. The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions and suggestions for dinner locations. They presented us with a welcome bottle of champagne and chocolates. What a pleasant surprise. The hotel offered a free light breakfast with something for everyone....

We stayed in an ocean-view suite with a huge spa bathtub and a balcony with Adirondack-style lounge chairs. The view was spectacular. We were greeted with a bottle of Brut, four chocolates, and a rose. There is an outdoor hot tub, and the gardens are lovely. There was a cozy wine-and-cheese reception each evening and generous buffet-style breakfast each morning...

We loved this place. The room was spacious and clean. traditional decor and gorgeous views! The service was fantastic. We were worried since we had kids and this is made for more of a couple experience but the family experience was great too. The balcony was so nice with comfortable chair to gaze at the stars or the ocean--both fabulous....

My wife and I stayed here on our California trip. She wanted to stay near the ocean. This hotel look out over the Pacific Ocean. Is it worth $ 350+ to stay here? Is it worth making your wife happy? Unequivocally yes. Spend the extra to get the best for her.

We travel quite a bit and for vacation prefer to stay at unique places. I stayed at what was the Park Hyatt / Highlands Inn about 8-10 years ago and upon booking our November trip to California, initially thought to book it again. And I am SO glad that I did not. What "was" the Park Hyatt is now a...

When we pulled up we were a little nervous, the outside of the motel looks like it was stuck in the 50's, with the high price tag we almost left! After entering our room we were blown away by the views, it was our favorite part! The deck was wonderful to relax on with the champagne and chocolates, the wine...

As a yearly visitor to the Tickle Pink I must say I am a little biased. The views from the very large balconies are unbelievable. They serve wine and cheeses and crackers every evening in a covered from the elements dining area that you will also eat your complimentary breakfast buffet. Pleasantly located right across the street from the ocean...

Spent two nights at this fabulous Inn with great views, beautiful rooms and fantastic service. This Inn provided a nice breakfast and wine and cheese everyday included in the room price. I would recommend this Inn for anyone who appreciates breath taking views and great rooms.
