Our room was clean and nothing broken. Comfy beds. Loved the seating with fire by the cliff edge. Breakfast included and had a range to choose from. Staff all friendly and helpful....

We arrived late at Cottage Inn and were greeted by a very enthusiastic receptionist . There were no cookies because they were all finished. We requested a quiet room and the receptionist assured us that's what we had but they were not. We could hear the road very clearly all night -rooms 225 and 226. The comfort of the rooms...

Great service at front desk, but would have been even better if the people knew where the start of Amgen Tour of Cali was. The room was so cute and clean, but not spacious and we had a nice view to the ocean. They just put fireplaces outside which was nice in the evening and morning. Location was great by...

We enjoyed our stay here. Super comfy bed, great facilities (incl free cookies!) and a complimentary breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. The only thing I'd say was a bit of a pain was the free wifi which was slow and clunky which somehow is more annoying than having no wifi at all! Get this right and my review would be...

First, the staff was welcoming and beyond helpful during our stay. The ocean view in our extremely cute and comfortable room for two was beyond amazing. I love sleeping to the sound of the ocean!
