A lovely getaway destination!

Posted 30-Jun-2017
Pros: Huge room with fireplace and patio viewing the lovely gardens.
Cons: Our room was around the corner from the living area. It would be a good idea to tell guests to not use that room socially after 10 pm.
Location: Quick drive to superb restaurants and quaint shops...walking distance through the woods to access the beach.
If you are looking for that special place that is tucked away from the crowds, is a beautiful facility, lovely grounds, and close access to the ocean...this is the place!

Peaceful and serene

Posted 14-May-2017 on CheapTickets
Pros: We loved the peaceful environment. The grounds were great. Balcony was perfect. Breakfast was perfect. The fireplaces in the rooms were nice.
Cons: Love it just the way it is. Bathrooms could be updated a bit.
Location: Fitzgerald Marine preserve was a short walk away. Seal Cove was a little further. Restaurants were close. Pillar Point was a mile away.
What a great place for a getaway. Lovely and this is our return visit. We plan on coming here again. The proximity of the beach and amenities is awesome yet it is still set back and a very private and intimate environment. They really have something special here. It seemed like we were the only ones there. We had a great time.

Lovely Inn, sweet staff

Posted 19-Apr-2017
Only one minor issue is there was no dresser or area to store clothing except hang in small closet. Staff is wonderful, nice touches include bikes, beach chairs, and umbrellas available to borrow, espresso machine and homemade chocolate chip cookies regularly available.

Stellar find

Posted 23-Feb-2017 on Hotels
Almost hate to do this and spoil the secret, but this hotel is great. Clean, friendly, and the surrounding beach/county park creates a serene setting that forces one to relax. The caretakers are extremely helpful and go out of their way to ensure a special stay. I was there off peak for a business trip, and only found this hotel because SF was basically completely booked. So glad to have found this gem

This was a fabulous find!

Posted 23-Nov-2016 on Orbitz
Now that we have found this place, it will be a favorite special occasion place to stay in the future. The breakfast was perfect, the fireplace in the room was a treat, the view of the garden was lovely, and the covey of quail that came to eat in the morning was awesome! Kelly and Stacey were so welcoming, and I can't say enough about how relaxing our stay was! I also can't describe how comfortable the pillows were, but you have to experience them on your own. The hotel is close to the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, and the hiking trails are short with some elevation challenge. The views were incredible. Golf is close by (Ritz Carlton), and the restaurants around the hotel are wonderful.

Not quite up to our expectations

Posted 07-Nov-2016
The inn is located near the ocean but there is no view of the ocean from the inn. Upon arrival and departure be prepared to carry your own bags. Since we were traveling for 8 days our bags were large and heavy. We arrive late and were exhausted from traveling all day. There is no elevator. Our room was on the second floor. Nuff said The staff was friendly and will bring you a very nice breakfast of fresh fruit and cereal and bread basket every morning. However there is no coffee maker in the rooms and they refused to bring us coffee. So we had to leave the room to go downstairs to their coffee maker in the lobby to get ours. which by the way, they pass on their way to your room. Weird! Outside those little quirks the Inn is beautiful inside and out. If hiking is your thing the ocean is a short walk and there are trails along it. Beautiful views from the bluffs above the ocean.

It's wonderful to know you enjoyed the fresh breakfast delivered to your room and that our team made you feel welcomed. We're sorry to hear that our coffee was not convenient for you, and we hope the quiet nature of our common areas helped ease your discomfort.

We appreciate all your feedback; hearing from our guests is always valuable. We hope you'll consider another visit when you next desire a relaxing escape to the coast.
