“The Most Dog-Welcoming Hotel EVER!”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

We have two small Havanese. We've stayed places with the dogs but never as good as the Shearwater. Most rooms allow dogs. They have a doggy welcome basket including a sheet to go on the bed. They even welcome dogs to the evening wine reception and the managers bring their pups.

Don't be fooled into thinking this place has gone to the dogs (sorry). It is a first rate hotel. Very well kept up, rooms are wonderful with microwave and small fridge. They serve a light breakfast sent to your room.

The view is also great - just above D Sands, with Kyllos Restaurant only steps away.

And to top it all off, the prices are very reasonable!

We so enjoyed our time at the Shearwater Inn. We spent two nights during spring vacation and were treated so well. From the time we walked in until the time we left, people were kind and thoughtful. We enjoyed our breakfast each morning and every interaction with staff was friendly and kind. Thanks for the amazing, relaxing time.

From the moment we arrived, they treated us like royalty. Views are fantastic and the hotel is very nice, and very clean. The breakfast delivered to our room was a nice surprise instead of the usual bumping arms with people at the breakfast room.

Right behind a restaurant but the views all capture the pacific and the beach is in walking distance. Lovely, intimate wine hour with a chance to meet other and/or play board games. The breakfest in the rooms was customizable and delicious. Super friendly staff.

My friend and I wanted a nice clean place to stay by the beach. Not only do they have beautiful clean rooms, but they are such nice people. The wine social and continental breakfast delivered to your room is almost unheard of in a hotel under 140 a night. The view from the top floor was fabulous and even though it was stormy we left our slider open all night to hear the ocean crashing. The fireplace and jacuzzi tub were also nice as well as the free movie rentals. I will stay here again!

We only got to stay for one night for our 35th anniversary. It was very nice! There was a bottle of champagne chilling in our room which was on the fifth floor. The view was beautiful. The staff was nice. We did have to wait a bit for our room to be ready, so plan to arrive around 3 p.m. and you will be fine. The breakfast could be a bit better but was still ample for a continental style. I love that you fill out a form and get to choose what you want and breakfast is delivered to your room but dislike the fact that you don't have a large selection and there is no way to get more if you are still hungry. Still, all in all, a wonderful experience. The bed was SO comfortable! No noises from other rooms detectable. Will stay here again!

Room Tip: Stay on the fifth floor for the best ocean view.

The staff were all very helpful and nice. Rooms very clean. Right on the main highway but never heard any road noise at all. I loved that we were on the 5th floor and could leave our sliding door open at night so we could hear the ocean. Beautiful view!
We enjoyed our stay and will stay again when we are in the area.
