I happened upon this hotel by chance. It reminded me of the old shore motels. Everything you need, with none of the extra drama. The restaurant below was warm and romantic. The bed was delicious. The staff was very caring. They looked after us as if we were all one family. It is an older place, but style aside -...

Okay. First off, the hotel is dated. In some ways it seems like it is running on a shoe string budget. There is a well stocked continental breakfast. The WiFi works well. You can hear the people above you, or if there is anyone outside your door. The bed was comfortable and the room we stayed in was huge. We...

The views are fantastic BUT the rooms are frightening. My concerns ranged from dirty walls, fears of bedbugs to whether the linens were clean. I could smell perfume on the pillows. I spent two nights at this hotel because I was committed to being on the beach and because they had a no refund policy. I won't make the same...

Have driven by this Inn for years so it was on my mental bucket list. I was lucky to get a good price for a one night Sunday stay. Parking is minimal, check in was easy and the view is spectacular. I was in room 5, a small queen room with ample space for one person. The ocean has weathered...

Room is not modern but then it is not meant to be a modern hotel. It is clean and comfortable and staff helpful. Had dinner in Shoals restaurant which was delicious and sat outside with spectacular view of the ocean. Nice continental breakfast in the morning.

This hotel has a great view, an awesome restaurant and a nice pool. The rooms were so so. It kind of seems like it's a Motel 6 in an awesome location. The continental breakfast was just that, a continental breakfast. My husband I actually drove down the street to get something else. The rooms were quiet. Parking was hard.

This morning it was high tide and the ocean waves were crashing 50 feet from my window! No coffee pot. Bring your own. Yes there is coffee at breakfast – a continental breakfast. Beware of the old door locks. If you turn it too far, the door remains unlocked when you leave the room. Some rooms have little refrigerators. Good...

The location is stellar- all rooms face the ocean- on the oceanside, you can sit and enjoy your own private beach- it is not a large place- I think 24 rooms- The room was CLEAN-thankfully which means a lot to me- but worn around all the edges- my door had a piece of wood on it- just replace the door-...

We stayed here for one night in November during our pacific coast highway trip. Doesn't look much from the outside and its very close to the freeway but WOW the views on the other side make this so worthwhile. The room we had was on the second floor, it was basic but clean and well equipped for what we needed...

We stayed here because of being close to the water. Our room was on the second floor with a great view. The room had been recently remodeled and was very clean, however it is still an older hotel. The staff were very friendly. The pool was great. The breakfast was delicious. This is a great hotel to stay if you...
