    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    This property has a great "in the village" location, close to shopping, restaurants, cafes and more. The location is excellent for walking right out the front door and down to the shoreline within minutes. We have stayed regularly at the Inn by the Sea for almost ten years, and we find the rooms clean, the staff friendly and the location ideal. The addition of onsite parking (for a low fee per day-especially compared to other local hotels) is great.

      Home away from home

      We’re from San Diego but needed a place to stay for a couple of nights while our home was fumigated. There’s so much to do right here close to the hotel. This was a great little staycation. Lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance.

      • Disliked: Cleanliness

      The staff were all very nice. However, my room was dirty upon arrival. I had to have cleaning staff swap out dirty towels that were hung as if they were fresh, and wipe down the bathroom counter covered in hardened lotion or something. I wiped down all the surfaces with Clorox wipes and it was upsetting how much dirt and dust there was. The bathtub basin was in bad shape and shower water pressure were not what you’d expect. The refrigerator was making an awful screeching noise. But beyond all that... the location was great as was the staff.
