5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Just a beautiful location for a perfect mid-week romantic getaway. It is so relaxing as well. We had an upper level ocean view room so I'm not sure how the views are from the lower level, probably ok, but it just felt so relaxing having that view to look at in the morning, evening and all day. The rooms are... More

If you're sure about the weather conditions, it's a top spot. 3 Miles inland it was clear and quite warm weather. On the coast freezing 53 Fahrenheit. The pool is heated and there is a Jacuzzi wich was ok.

We stayed only one night here during our recent CA trip. The views are beautiful and it is convenient to town and the beach. The room was very clean, and had good space. The kids enjoyed the pool. The breakfast and staff were also very good. The only downfall is that it is not on the long beach.

The rooms are large and basic and if you have any amount of luggage and have a room away from the office, it is not convenient. In addition, there are no restaurants or long walk paths like The Cliffs Down the street for the same price. Also, the amenities are lacking. This hotel is fine if you are just passing... More

Nice stay short of the the internet reception problem. The bed was a bit too hard for both of us. The continental breakfast was fine. Although they ran out of fruit on Friday morning. I guess I'm just going to fill up the rest of the 200 spaces with empty words.

Very nice hotel. Friendly staff. Large & well equipped rooms - even down to small binoculars for each room. All rooms overlook the Pacific - on the cliff. Breakfast is more than adequate, & there is always someone to keep everything "full". We only spent a night, but 2 would have been better.

We stopped off for one night on the way back from San Francisco. We chose this hotel for the views and half way point on our journey. We got a reasonable rate for a upper level Ocean view room on a pre-paid non refundable deal. The Room was clean, spacious and provided spectacular views, although ours was a little close... More

We thought the nightly price was high given the cheap quality of the beds and bedding. That being said, breakfast is included and the location of the Inn over-looking the water is phenomenal. We were also disappointed that when we asked to change our room to that with a higher view, we were not told about the difference in price... More
