Truly the check-in, check-out and breakfast interactions with the owners here were beyond welcoming. We had one of the rooms with a gas fireplace, and it was very cozy and much appreciated in late November. Breakfast has quite a large variety of foods - boiled eggs, yogurt, cereal and milk, pastries, bagels, etc. A block from the beach, and a...

The hotel was very nice, clean the bed was nice and towels and sheets white. The breakfast was good, you sit outside to eat so if busy you could wait for a table, but worth the wait. Not many places to get something to eat unless you got into the car.

From the first welcome by Frank, I knew I would be going back some day. Frank, the manager, welcomed me and my family, as if we were his own. He told us all about the local area and what to see. The hotel was nice, super clean. The room had a frig, but no microwave. The beds were not super...

Found this last minute location that was reasonable. Went in with low expectations as the prices of the surrounding hotels were much higher. Was extremely impressed with the customer service and fantastic friendliness of the staff. The hosts and staff are definitely working to make certain you have a great and enjoyable time. Would gladly come back again. The continental...

THE RECEPTION Arriving at the Inn, I was immediately taken by the cool retro 1960s/70s motel look, with the courtyard pool and outdoor furniture. Looked a bit like the set from the TV series "Joey." I immediately felt "I'm in California." Then, a very friendly and helpful welcome by the lovely Kamal (girl who runs the desk during the day)....

The staff here is SO nice. They're incredibly accommodating, and the rooms are beautiful. It's a great little spot right by the water, and it's the perfect location. The walls are a little thin, but aside from that, we had an amazing stay. Thank you so much!
