Lovely little getaway spot!
Loved sleeping and waking up to the ocean sounds. Beautiful views, very relaxing. Will definitely stay here again. Only thing to note was maybe due to being just above the restaurants kitchen, but it was a little noisy until 11pm, and with needing to keep the windows open for the cool breeze, I wasn't able to sleep until it was quiet and the office closed as well.

The view was amazing, the pool was sparkling and inviting and just the right temperature. Plenty of deck space and lounge chairs. The bed was comfy, but the room overall could use some updating and upkeep. I appreciated the fact that the housekeeping service was in full operation, the First I have experienced since before the pandemic. I like having clean towels and a freshly made bed. No check-in before 3:00 not even processing and nowhere to get a snack or drink on property before then and leaving the property isn’t particularly easy. Complimentary continental breakfast is always a nice addition, but adding a few extra items (maybe hot chocolate, tea, cheese, ham or better fruit) would definitely upgrade it. The freeway noise is well disguised by the inn and the ocean sounds, but it is very apparent in the room. Staff was very friendly. Lots to do in fairly close proximity. If you want to listen to the ocean and relax in a deck chair, it’s the perfect spot.

Great View Poor Hotel
This is a lovely spot with great views of the ocean. Having travelled down the coast we were looking forward a luxury coast hotel. The view is stunning literally on route 1 - which wasn’t as noisy as I’d expected (sea drowns it out). However the hotel was in need of a major refurbishment, the rooms were fairly small by US standards and generally shabby. When your paying $250 you expect a better standard. Breakfast was poor. The hotel is trading on the sea view and not providing the accommodation to go with it.

Wonderful View
Amazing stay! From the front desk having a very friendly gentleman to the kitchen staff everyone was great!! The pool is saline - very eco-friendly. Great view of seals swimming by. The private beach is great at low tide, high tide it disappears. The guests were friendly. My only concern were people arriving with pets. People entered from the side gate and walked their dogs. But when the staff were notified, they were promptly asked to leave - and they did.

It was nice…
Room was stuffy. The ocean breeze was nice but if we left our drapes opened to feel the breeze, people passing by our room could look inside. So, a bit of a conundrum. The breakfast was meh. But the views were spectacular.

Could be much better
Could be a cracking place to stay but clearly minimal investment and for the price, can only say it was to pay for the view. Breakfast was disappointing, and there was no restaurant service meaning about a 20min drive to get food when we arrived in the early evening. No indication on website or emails that the restaurant was not open. Great views but a bit disappointing.
