Great location. Poor service on departure. Argued with front desk over a 15 min vs 20 min late checkout..pathetic. Our room was $450/night.

THE best view of the ocean from bed! This is a lovely hotel, room with stone fireplace, patio, group fire pits, and such beautiful, restful ocean sights and sounds! The room is nice! The restaurant is literally steps away, nice guest breakfast menu. The bed, though comfortable, is quite soft, the toilets are quite noisy when flushed...which is not bad until the middle of the night! Can hear the one upstairs too! I booked downstairs as I wanted to be able to just walk out to the cliff edge, and yes, you can hear foot traffic above you and voices out on the patio. However, you get this at many places, and it wasn’t enough to give a bad rating, more FYI. No in room microwave, but fridge and coffee maker. Definitely would recommend and overall a good experience and stay! The views!!

Love the ocean view. Walked right out to a nice walking path. The stair path to the ocean was not very far. Easy access. Room was nice and comfy.

The Spyglass is definitely worth it. Great and super friendly staff. The room was a great size and very clean. The bed is very comfortable but had a hump in the middle. Still very comfortable. The bathroom was fantastic as well. The shower is a great size, heats up fast. The fireplace was easy to use once we found out how to turn it on. If anything the couch is a little old and uncomfortable, wish there was a table or small desk in the room. But over all a place I highly recommend.

Fire pits for making smores. Restaurant had 4 discounted breakfast meals for hotel guests. Great view of the ocean. Had to walk a couple of properties away to get to stairs to get to the beach. Pool had warm water. Very little shade on property except for 2 umbrellas in the pool area.
