While this "Inn" looks pretty nice on the outside, we were disappointed in the room. It smelled of mildew, the mattress was very soft, the bathroom door didn't close entirely, and the toilet flushed explosively so it could wake the dead in the middle of the night. It also had the most complicated TV set-up so we spent nearly 1 hour figuring out how to watch it.
But worst was the peephole. There was none in the door to the outside. But there was one in the door connecting our room to the neighboring room. We couldn't tell which way it looked. Consequently, we stuffed it with toilet paper so no one could look in. That peephole was quite spooky.
The bathroom was stocked only with soap and shampoo. No lotion, no creme rinse.
We stayed at the Sea Lion Inn the last week of their season and there really didn't seem to be much of price break, especially given the low quality of the room.
The staff in the office were very, very friendly. Compliments to them. But still, given the room, I would not stay there again.
