We have stayed up and down the west coast at numerous Motels and Hotels, and by far, the Spyglass Inn is the best yet. The rooms were clean and the staff were super friendly and helpful. We brought friends with us from Nevada and they are still talking about how great the stay was there. The ocean view is great, the restaurant is fantastic and had great service. Checking in was extremely easy and as far as I'm concerned, pretty cheap too. If you are in the area and you want to stay at a great place, this is it.

Unfortunately this hotel has gotten the reputation as being "overly dog friendly".. Not uncommon to see two dogs residing in one room. Needless to say there is barking and selfish people that do not pick up after their dogs. I can honestly say that over 50% of the patrons during our stay had dogs. We still feel like we need flea spray.

This is our 4th vacation to the Spyglass Inn. We go because they allow our dog to stay with us, the ocean view from our bed, the fireplace and the food. We eat at the restaurant for breakfast and dinner every day we are there. We have to tear ourselves away to go to lunch. The front desk staff is always courteous and friendly. We reccomend this Inn to all our friends and family. I could live there!!!! But since I can't, we await email specials to return, and we always do.

A very nice hotel and extra nice because they take our little dog, kudos to the management for that. The room was clean the bed comfortable and the view outstanding. My only complaint was the people above us kept playing with their dog a very large dog and it was noisy to say the least. We went for a walk and looked above our unit (it is a two story motel and all dogs are suppose to be on the first floor only) we saw a large dog sitting out on the patio, no wonder we thought it is so noisy. We complained when we checked out but were told sorry, they must have snuck the dog in. It kinda ruined our time there. One plus the restaurant has great food!!

Our room was ready for check in upon arrival and was very clean and cute. The queen beds were super comfortable. The weather was perfect outside so I left without grabbing my jackets from the closet upon check out. I called the next day and they had been turned in & are being shipped to my house in Fresno, CA. I will absolutely be staying there on my next visit.
