Our very favorite beach location on the west coast. 180 degree views from our room on 4th floor. Every room is ocean front so you really can’t go wrong. Simple, clean rooms. Enjoyed having the fireplace for cool evenings and we left the sliding door open all night. Family owned with a wonderful staff. Everyone very helpful and always smiling. Incredible sunsets.

A million dollar view to say the least...The outside looks pale in comparison. But I think they like it that way to be more mysterious. It was a great find for sure. The inside of the rooms were simple and clean but the view was WOW!

Had the best 2 days with the in laws. The fact that there’s no bad view from the hotel is a plus! We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the waves. Easily walkable to town and the beach. Rooms are very clean and while the hotel has some age on it, it’s very well cared for. The hot tub reservation system was well run also and helped keep us safe and distant. I have nothing negative to say!

A wonderful stay! The room was spacious, with plenty of clothes drawers. Great bed, pillows, showerhead. This was the first room we've ever stayed that came with two recliner seats - masterful! The desk was really friendly and helpful. The view is beautiful - all rooms view the ocean. Get a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor if you want the best view over the cliff to the ocean. It looks like the rooms on the first floor were best fit for families with childres, so their kids could play out on the lawn. Recommendation - if you are staying in the summer, try to get a room as close to the south end as you can - we were in the middle and could not view the sunset from our room. But the beach is just below, with fantastic sunsets! The only issue we had was with the water, and for us it was minor - there was a funny taste. Fortunately, because of COVID, we had brought with us a case of water, and were just fine. So - bring a case, and you won't be disappointed!!

We loved our stay here.. friendly staff beautiful views and very clean... It’s stressful traveling with Covid and this hotel was great with making sure the lounge chairs we’re sanitized and making sure not too many people were at the pool.. I enjoyed the breakfast every morning .. and you can’t beat hearing the ocean from your room and the views... we will be back again soon💕
