The Beauty of Nature canvassed infront of my eyes everytime i wake up in the morning that reminds me all the blessings from the Lord. Staff were extending extra miles to accomodate unusual needs, soecial mention Derek & Maggie of front desk. Very clean, simple elegant amenities and experienced closeness nature’s vastness of beauty lies infront of me. Highly recommendable! - EdgarLopez

The view was wonderful from our front door straight to the sliding glass door. The room was large and very comfortable. This was our first time here but not our last!!

Cons: Comfortable mattress
Location: Wine tasting and good food. Sunset walks
Very enjoyable stay as usual. We come here almost every December for our Anniversary. My only complaint was the bed was too hard this time. Breakfast and staff is always welcoming.

3rd yr wine tasting-new hotel

We stayed in a different hotel the past 2 years and thought we would change it up and stayed at the Inn. Awesome place, nice but simple rooms, great view and walking paths. Stunning area and quiet, no noise from next door. Nice pool area, beautiful swings, there really was no downside. Centrally located to dozens of wineries, eating places and beaches. Saw whales spouting 2 years in a row. A nicely kept secret.

Good value for money, great location

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, ocean front, kitchen area & sink in room, microwave, refrigerator, pets allowed, non-smoking
Cons: lots of stairs not good for wheelchairs, carpet needed cleaning
Mostly good experience overall. This hotel is undergoing some remodeling/reconstruction, so the lobby and breakfast room were mostly out of commission. So we just drove to their sister property for breakfast. The first room they gave us was completely torn apart, so that kind of unnerved us, but they immediately gave us a different room just down the way from the first, so no problems there. The ocean view was exactly what we wanted and very peaceful.

Everything was great!Just one thing..

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
Everything was great!Just one thing....HBO was advertised as complimentary showing on CH. 2, however the number of days we were there, there was no HBO, just some weird religious programming. We told 2 of the staff members, but didnt see any movement. We are used to watching HBO at home, so it was dissapoingting not to have it in our room, especially after advertised. Other than that....great hotel! Spectacular views.

We would definitely stay there again

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, ocean view
We stayed there one night for our 12th Anniversary and drove up the coast to Carmel to another hotel (which I will not stay there again). This place had great customer service with great staff. The view was outstanding and room quality. We would stay there again. Breakfast could be a little better.

WHAT A VIEW!

Great oceanfront view on upper level. Beautiful beach cove which was not crowded. The grounds make you feel your somewhere else. The breakfast is okay but the room is too small for everyone to get their food. I want to stay longer next time.
