Horizon Inn & Ocean View Lodge

Reviewed July 29, 2013

My husband and I drove up from San Diego for our honeymoon with our two 100 lbs Akitas and checked in at a hotel we had stayed at before with our dogs. We then learned that they were no longer pet friendly and were unwilling to make any accomodations. We would have happily paid for cleaning and all the other associated costs of bringing your pets with you, but they weren't interested. As I tried to negotiate a refund with the hotel and Expedia, my husband was trying to find another place to stay. Enter Horizon Inn. Lacey, John, and Pam couldn't have been nicer. We ended up with a lovely cottage with an ocean view, jacuzzi tub (used that every day), fireplace (used that at least once a day), a daily breakfast picnic basket, and perhaps the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. They had biscuits for our dogs and there were even dog bowls in the room. We've already planned our return trip in December. I would recommend Horizon Inn and Ocean View Cottages to anyone.

Staff is friendly and seems to really care about your experience at the inn. Room was spotless, spacious, and nicely decorated, nice fireplace, location in walking distance of great restaurants and downtown. Quiet, charming, well-maintained--we would definitely stay again. Lovely breakfast baskets every morning outside the door. Only complaint would be the dressing-area lighting, although maybe it was just as well that I couldn't be obsessed about appearance for a few days!

My son and I stayed at the Ocean View Lodge (which is part of the Horizon Inn property located directly across the street) over the July 4th weekend. The cottage (room 206, upstairs no ocean view, wood burning fireplace, pet friendly room) was adorable. The room was comfortable and boasted the deepest biggest in room Jacuzzi I've ever seen. Housekeeping was so nice and attentive. Views of the woods were pleasing. Would stay again and would like to try one of the ocean view rooms at Horizon Inn :-)

I'm almost afraid to write this review because now everyone will know about this wonderful find!
The location was nice; it was close to all the shops/restaurants, but just far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. The room was very clean and decorated nicely. The hotel staff were friendly and most helpful. My favorite part of the room was a mini kitchen, with a plentiful breakfast basket delivered right to our door!
My only regret is that we could not stay longer. :(

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at Horizon Inn, it is well situated for the beach and town. We drove there from SF airport and we had a very comfortable room. Breakfast is brought to your room in a basket and the room is cleaned daily.

My family stayed here to attend a wedding. The front desk alerted us to the shuttle that was picking us up, otherwise we would have had to drive. The morning breakfast basket was just what we needed. Some rooms had fireplaces, but ours didn't. I didn't miss it but good to know they have some. Loved having a hot tub in this sometimes foggy area. Really kind front desk too. Parking was great too. Would definitely stay here again.
