We selected this hotel based on trip advisor reviews. It was by far the most we paid during our trip up the Pacific Coast Hiway. Was it the best one? Yes! I am still not sure it was worth the room rate but I don't regret staying. The staff is exemplary in their service. Breakfast was yummy. Popcorn provided to...

Bikkie913, Thank you for the review and for making us a stop on your California tour. Happy to hear that you found our service to be of a high quality.

We booked 3 rooms for 7 people including an elderly family member with a walker. The accommodations were 4 stars. The rooms were well appointed and roomy. The bathrooms were beautiful with all the appropriate amenities. The staff was 5 stars. They served as our concierge and tour guides, always very pleasant and extremely helpful. We will definitely return.

Can't say enough great things about this hotel. Perfect size, perfect location. The courtyard is wonderful for socializing, and they have a great selection of reasonable wines by the glass or bottle. The cheese plate was huge, and great to share if heading out to a late dinner. The room had so much character, and the location could not be...

It's not the location, it's not the rooms - it's just everything. This is one of the places you really hate to leave.

We tried to book 4 nights in this Inn last minute since it was close to the home of a family member who unexpectedly passed way.

Let me first offer my condolences for your loss. Planning travel for a tragedy is always hectic and challenging.
