10/10 Exceptional

The staff welcomed us with wine and cheese/ crackers and was very accommodating and provided stellar service. The inn is beautiful with ocean view across the highway. Like all other places in the area you hear the highway, but not the ocean waves. The inn also provided lil breakfast in the morning, but there are other cafes within walking distance. Love this place and would stay here again.

Love this Inn!!
Fabulous stay! Chris checked us in and was fantastic. Made us feel welcome, told us about all of the amenities (free cheese and wine hour, dessert hour, etc). We arrived a little early for check in. Our room was ready. Such a cute and lovely place to stay. Great location. Will definitely stay again!

8/10 Very Good

Our stay was very pleasant. Checking in was simple and nearly complete when we arrived. Just a few signatures and it was done. The complimentary afternoon snacks were perfect appetizer prior to going to dinner. I do miss the small puff pastry they used to have for snacks but that is splitting hairs. The room was clean and quiet. The music playing on entry was a nice touch. The continental breakfast was good and the chef was nice and helpful. I would recommend staying here.
