“First class & charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful spacious room, great breakfast & wine in the afternoon. Hot tub on the roof veranda. Directly across the street from the beach. Get a second floor room for a better ocean view. A little pricey but the best in town.

Awesome place to stay over looking the beach! Great service, great food. It is located within walking distance of other unique places to check out. The snacks in the afternoon and evening are a great nice "extra" touch. The rooms are really clean and e beds super comfy.

The man and I stayed here this past weekend and really enjoyed ourselves. The rooms are huge and the service is outstanding. Fireplaces in the rooms with a massive spread at breakfast, happy hour from 5-6 (where they serve you local wines and beer...both were VERY good), and dessert at night. Really nice touch! I'd go back in the summer when we could really enjoy the balconies and sit out and enjoy the happy hour wine while watching the sunset.

This is a very nice place to stay with balconies that overlook the ocean. The attention to detail is great and the ladies who helped us and made breakfast for us each day were very nice and the food was just right. Our room was very large and it was so delightful to sit by the fireplace and look out at the ocean. I am hoping to return soon.

We had the pleasure of meeting the owner and also visiting with some other folks from different states. It's always interesting to find out more information regarding the inn. Richard told us the inn was 8 years old and he was the second owner. All the beautiful furniture was Thomasville and the rooms had every possible amenity one could want. We were in Room 5 downstairs and enjoyed watching the people suit up to go out surfing. Our room had a great view of the ocean even though there was parking between us and the waves. Evening
hors d'oeuvres were very nice and wine was from a local winery. Their resident chef, Moreen, was most gracious and very friendly telling each guest what the morning specials were and serving everyone individually. I was really impressed with the locally grown very fresh fruit which is out of season at our home. Homemade scones, blueberry pancakes, frititas and breakfast casseroles were served the two mornings we were there. Meka, Sheri and Dezi were all very helpful during our stay and we learned that Dezi is also a great cook. We heard several people commenting that the food was one of the reasons they keep returning to this B&B. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Dinner at Hoppe's is a must....across the street a block away and within walking distance.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the ocean so you can watch the surfers

My husband and I really enjoyed this hotel. I say hotel because thus place seems like the perfect blend of B&B and boutique hotel. You get the friendly staff and great food and service of a B&B plus the privacy and amenities that you'd expect from a nice hotel including an elevator so you don't have to lug bags up stairs and a parking garage. The staff is very friendly and professional. The rooms are spacious and beautiful. Luxurious bedding and yes the beach is right there as are lots of restaurants. Just be sure to check when they are open because since thus is primarily a tourist local, not every restaurant and store is open every day, especially Mondays and Tuesdays. Nice location if you are looking to do Hearst Castle, Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo etc.

We plan on visiting again someday!
