While I have stayed here before I never had the means at the time to book an ocean front room. What a difference a view makes!!!! Whatever the room, Moonstone Landing is clean, spacious, great decor and super room amenities. Beyond that, the service is amazing. We were there three nights in one of the 1st floor ocean rooms and... More

The rooms here are gorgeous! The service is amazing, from front desk to cleaning staff. We loved the continental breakfast and the afternoon snacks. I felt we got a great value for the money. My only complaint was with the bed and bedding. The bed was very hard and the linens stiff and unyielding. Fix these little glitches and you'll... More

Thank you for your review and for providing your feedback.

Never having visited this area before, we scoured the online reviews to make sure we booked a nice, clean hotel right on the water that had good views. We could not have chosen better.

My wife and stayed overnight as part of our road trip from San Fran to LA. Ideally positioned and very reasonably priced, I highly recommend Moonstone Landing. The friendly service, large comfortable rooms, and the beautiful location on the waterfront makes this the perfect spot to unwind after a day of driving.

Stayed here on recommendation of their sister hotel (Little Sur Inn). Great staff, clean room and amenities. The staff was very helpful in helping us choose our room with an ocean view and quiet.

We're glad we were able to acommodate you since our sister property, Little Sur Inn, was full. Our rooms and amenities are so identical that many guests switch back and forth between the 2 properties when the other one is full. Our family built both hotels, thereby, there are very few differences between the two. We're glad you enjoyed your... More
