A great hotel! The continental breakfast is pretty much a full breakfast, best I've ever seen. Rooms are beautiful and huge (suite size). The views from the rooms are exceptional. The hotel has done just about every small thing possible to make the stay awesome. Look forward to coming back again!

Stunning location. Small pool and jacuzzi. Nice amenities in the room including binoculars for whale sitings and a glass of wine upon arrival. A short walk to the Ventana restaurant which is worth a meal. Hotel breakfast less than edible- he only disappointment.

Great hotel, fantastic location with fabulous views. Lovely pool area, good breakfast. Lucky enough to see whales in the ocean, loads of Pelicans too, lovely touch to have binoculars in the room. Sunset pretty too if the mist doesn't come in before the sun goes down.

Very clean, comfortable and friendly hotel with a great ocean view, especially from the upper floor. We arrived 30 minutes prior to check in and were offered a refreshing glass of wine while we waited. Friendly efficient staff. No road noise. Small clean pool with ample free sun beds. Lovely little private beach down about 70 steps, bottom few steps...

We went to the Inn at the Cove at a short notice for a much needed family time with our two dogs. The room was comfortable, welcoming. The inn very cozy. Gorgeous ocean front views over the cove and nooks to be discovered. Lounge chairs placed outdoors in well thought out locations with a small library. Heated pool, long walks....

The wedding venue is so nice and a staff that seamlessly took care of all the setup. We were able to use the commons area near the pool for our rehearsal dinner and the wedding day was perfect. We will always have fond memories of the Inn at the Cove and are very grateful for the hospitality.

We had a fabulos room with a perfect view on the ocean. It was very clean and the staff was very helpful. Only the breakfast (especially the room was too small) could be improved. The pool area was OK, but not so important for us.
