We stayed at the Ocean Echo for three nights earlier this month as part of a two month road trip we are taking down the Californian coast. We have stayed in many other B & B's/cottage accommodation since and for the price we paid at the Ocean Echo we expected a little more than basic motel style accommodation. The location is excellent and the owners do provide a light breakfast assortment of bagels, donuts and yoghurt which is helpful but the accommodation is basic. The owner told us they have to price high in order to keep 'undesirables' - such as drunk locals - out but we don't see why guests should have to bear the inflated price. We wouldn't stay here again.

Just got back from spending 3 days and 2 nights at the Ocean Echo, and it was fabulous. The hosts are great, and the rooms are charming. The proximity to Johann's Beach is just wonderful, as you are only steps to the ocean for boogie boarding or body surfing or just relaxing in the sun.

We had a great time. The service is excellent. The owners are very nice. The cove is an excellent swimming beach and is literally steps away form the hotel. They were also great with my dog! (Only some rooms are OK for pets so check first.) Light breakfast included!

The Ocean Echo Inn was exactly what we were looking for for a short weekend getaway. It's not the most modern or the most luxurious place we've stayed, but the location is great and the staff is very inviting, friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again.

Ocean Echo is the perfect place for our group gathering. Nice quaint and CLEAN rooms, plus kitchenettes. Then you have the great deck area with barbecues and tables for everyone to hang out. It is just a few yards to a nice small beach, which is great for the day and bonfires at night. Bill, the manager there is so helpful, he made our stay even more memorable. We can't wait for next year!
