“Our favorite hotel on any continent”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

The Inn at Spanish Bay is a wonderful place to stay. Our oceanfront room was spacious with a fireplace, two sinks, balcony and plenty of room. Internet is included. Each evening a bagpiper makes his way from the Links club house down the first fairway to the Inn. Enjoying a glass of wine outside at one of the tables with a charcoal fire adds to the romantic atmosphere. Nightly room service, chocolates and turn down is greatly appreciated. The staff is like no other. Every person is friendly and helpful. Each morning that we did not golf we took a long morning walk along the pathway next to the ocean. It couldn't be more beautiful. This was our third visit and each time it is difficult to leave. We will be back again.

Room Tip: An ocean front room is worth the price. If the hotel is not fully booked the front desk staff will...

We stayed here in February and enjoyed the most beautiful weather and awesome hotel stay ever!! It was my husbands 50 birthday and they offered us an upgrade, and wow are we glad we took it! Ocean front most beautiful room we have ever stayed in! I walked with my husband at the pebble course and we both agreed it was like a religious experience definetly not to be missed! I enjoyed a scrub and massage at the spa which was top notch! We thought this would be a once in a lifetime but not for us we will definetly be back very soon!

We stayed for 4 days and had the most amazing experience. The service throughout our stay was 5 star. The ocean view room was cozy with a fireplace. Amenities: daily stocked bar and unlimited free snacks were greatly appreciated. The bathroom toiletries were generous sizes and we enjoyed tremendously. The spa was incredible - I had an incredible facial and massage. Loved the meditation room and soaks. The fitness center was lovely - the private yoga session was amazing. The firepit/Scottish bagpiper was unforgettable. We attended a fundraiser and appreciated the breakfast in the conference rooms as well as the 4 course dinner in the ball room - the food was incredible. My husband enjoyed golfing - the pictures were br Thank you for this special paradise. We hope to be back soon!!

Things have changed, and not for the better since my last review of The Inn at Spanish Bay in 2008. The service level is dramatically worse. During a five night stay we called down for our car approximately 12 times. Only once was the car actually there -- and the staff seemed to know that we had called. On one occasion we waited for 20 minutes for the car. Erin, the manager at the front door was heard to say, "call downs can wait". The concierge service was also highly disappointing. We were given wrong directions, wrong phone numbers, promised a dinner reservation would be made (it never was). We were kept waiting while two employees discussed a pending birth and whether additional children were planned. Simple requests like "where is a good place to go for breakfast outside of the property?" was greeted with a blank stare...no kidding. Trip Advisor and Open Table came to our rescue.
The wallpaper in the hallways, duvets, and other appointments are dated and worn -- in need of replacement. When we needed to cancel a Spa appointment, because we were stuck in traffic on US 1 due to the Big Sur marathon (concierge made no mention of the marathon when we asked how long to allow for a drive to Hearst Castle) we got lots of pushback and threats to charge us anyway.
While the setting, fire pits and bagpipers are unique and special, the hotel experience was not up to par, no pun intended.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms have wonderful views. Ask to be away from groups if you want a quiet space. We ob...

Outside of Asia, I have traveled to a lot of places in the world. How did I miss Monterray and Pebble Beach? The views from this area are other-worldly. Blown away. To top it off the Inn at Spanish Bay is one of the top hotels in the world. The service is impeccable. The bagpiper at dusk still remains in my memory. This place is a once in a life time opportunity. If you stay here and play Pebble you can cross off a check box on the bucket list. I hope to return soon.

We have stayed here many times, and the past couple of times noticed that things were starting to look a bit tired. But this time we were pleased to see that the Inn had updated the lighting (Lutron controls) in our room, and more important, they replaced the in-cabinet TV with a nice flat screen on the wall.

The views are amazing, and you can walk a long way on the boardwalk and paths overlooking the ocean. Roy's is our favorite restaurant down there, so what's not to like?

Room Tip: The views are amazing, if you are considering going for the more expensive ocean view category

The Inn at Spanish Bay is not the nicest place I have ever stayed, but it is the most expensive. That being said, sitting by the fire pits with a glass of chardonnay watching the sun set with a bag piper playing in the background makes you feel like you have a pretty charmed life and makes it all worth it.
