Clean, comfortable, ocean view
I can highly recommend this hotel, the beds were very comfy, bedding surprisingly high quality, room was very clean and well-maintained, quiet. Location is very convenient, some great restaurants in easy walking distance. Best of all is the ocean view and private little trail down to the beach.

It was an amazing location on beautiful property on a cliff with a beach below, and a great restaurant, too! Mike checked us in with a ton of information on the area and history. Loved it so much, hated to leave.
