It was right on the beach which was nice. However our room was not clean. Think tortilla chip parts on the floor, granola bar wrappers under the bed and used wipes as well. Fireplace had handprints all over it. Bathroom was marginally cleaner. Aesthetically, they needed a bedspread. Furniture was old but wouldn't have minded if the room were clean.... More

I love Inn on the beach. It's a boutique hotel with a simple charm all its own & from my experience staying by the ocean from Puerto Vallarta to St Martin & Inn on the beach is the closest to the water, it's fantastic. Prices vary per floor & days & are very reasonable for a great ocean experience sleeping... More

I just wanted to thank the owner of the Hotel and the front desk people for turning my birthday vacation into a political theater for nonsmoking policies in the great state of California. I graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Political Science and the front desk person felt he needed to educate me on how the... More

Location and view from 3rd floor room are the only good thing about this place. Rooms are in bad condition and dirty. A few upgrades in the room (hair dryer and magnifier mirror) were new, jet tub was newer but who would sit in that! The fireplace in the room was pretty nice and the bed was pretty comfy. It...

I like the experience of the ocean and all it has to offer. This hotel has it all. Open the sliding door and the ocean is a landscape of blue and the cool salt air will give you a new beginning Each room has a balcony with table and chairs and a view of the southern coastline.

This place is fantastic. It's a tad rundown and needs a few repairs but in some way that adds to its charm. It's quaint, rustic and ideally located right on the beach. There are fridges and gas heaters in the rooms which adds to the ambience and the bathroom in our room while small has been recently updated. The staff... More

Good location and good restaurants within walking distance. The problem with this place was the cleanliness. We arrived late at night and noticed that we were not able to lock the slide patio door and the front door did not have a dead bolt; we were informed that there has never been any problems in the past with break ins...
