Reviewed yesterday NEW

The location and view were nice. Make sure to get a room with an ocean view, the others have a view of the parking lot. The beds were pretty, but noisy. Our bed and our neighbors bed were noisy. The staff was very nice and so was their breakfast.

My husband and I have had the opportunity to stay in beautiful resorts all over the world... but nothing compares to the experience we had staying right on the bluff here at The Cottage Inn! Words can not adequately describe the incredible feeling of walking out the door of our room into a garden that over looks the ocean! I...

As part of our west coast your, we were recommended to stay here on our down to LA. I have to say, I am extremely glad we took this advice! This hotel is so lovely... although it's only small and has a slight motel feel (I'm not sure if this is the norm with hotels in America?) it felt very...

We spent two days at the Cottage Inn and enjoyed the experience immensely. We opted for a ocean view on the second floor which I would highly recommend. It has a gas fireplace and a wonderful view of the ocean. We opened a window slightly at night so we could listen to the surf. Very nice and we will return...

Dear Hal H, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay so much! Thank you for sharing your experience and recommending our Ocean View rooms to future travelers. I couldn’t agree more, listening to the sound of the ocean waves crashing as you fall asleep next to your fireplace is one of the best sounds in the world. Very soothing...

We stayed here for 3 nights last week in an upstairs, ocean view room. It was awesome! The room was big - the fireplace was awesome and the view was spectacular. The 4pm cookie hour was a nice touch that our kids enjoyed and the breakfast was just right for a good start to the day. The staff was exceptional...

Stayed over a holiday weekend. Took a second floor room facing the sea, which is well worth it if you're staying there for the location. Would highly recommend the second floor, away from the (human) sounds of the patio underneath. Whether it was a quiet clientele or good room insulation, it was quiet. All amenities worked right. Hot water and...

This quaint cottage hotel TOTALLY exceeded our expectations!! Absolutely loved it from the minute we drove in, and our second floor, ocean view room was incredible. Clean, cozy, three big windows to open and hear the sea. We kept them open all night-the hotel sits close to the edge of a rocky bluff so you can see the waves right...

This is now one of our favorite Pacifica properties. The room (359) was spacious and well appointed. The staff was friendly, professional and helpful. As mentioned in other reviews there is a great overlook of the coastline with access to the beach. This will be our stop over in the future when traveling north to Cambria. This is one of...
