Nice location, friendly staff, cute from the outside but don't open the door. We stayed in the Eastwood suite and the smell was overwhelming. The airfreshener was less than fresh and smelled of grandmothers and stale cigarettes. So many nicer spots in the area I strongly recommend you land somewhere else to find your happiness...that is unless you are a... More

Loved loved loved the Happy Landing Inn. We stayed in the Eastwood room. Having a sitting area and fireplace for the cool evenings was amazing. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and being served on the patio made it more special. The grounds were meticulously kept and beautiful. And my little furry friend loved his silver platter of treats.... More

My wife and I recently spent four nights here, and loved it. The location is ideal for walking around town, while this B&B is in a very quiet neighborhood. The morning breakfast is nicely served by Sandy Tuerk, either in the courtyard, or delivered to your room. The other staff members are also nice, and eager to please.

Fun place to stay just off Ocean Ave. Rooms vary in size....some very small....but there is a charm to the place that is unique. Sandy and Astevia were the innkeepers and they are fun, lively, could not be more helpful or caring. They will bring breakfast to your room when you either raise your blinds or call them. Or you...

My husband and I stayed in the Hepburn room. The inn has a beautiful open courtyard with fireplace and water fountain, very quite and peaceful. We loved sitting outside and looked at all the flowers. The room is spacious and clean. The bathroom is small but adequate for us. We can hear the water fountain and birds from the room.... More

When booking, I have to admit that I was put off a little by the name - 'Happy Landing' just did not sound like the place on the web site. With TripAdvisor reviews to quell my fears, I went ahead and booked the White room - and how glad I am that I did. A super room in a great... More

My husband and I stayed a night in the Hemingway. The grounds are rooms are beautiful and the staff is helpful and kind. We loved sitting out by the fire after dinner and for breakfast! The breakfast was wonderful. Loved the local artichoke in the breakfast casserole and super fresh fruit. I would love to stay there again!
