On our way to our daughter's home in Castro Valley, we took a break from driving and once again, enjoyed our overnight stay at this lovely Inn. The gardens are beautiful, there's a heated swimming pool, and the rooms have been upgraded. Another plus is it's so close to town. We've been staying at Svendsgaard's Inn for forty years!

We stay at Svengaards 2 or 3 times a year and have always been well looked after and our dog knows just which room to go to. Many excellent restaurants within a couple of blocks--some give a discount when showing the Svengaards key. The beach is heaven for fun-loving dogs and people.

I opted for the "pet friendly" room, only to discover that this means my dogs must sleep and stay inside of a crate. They are not permitted on beds. My dogs are my babies....this did not go over well.

We arrived on a Wednesday at Noon and stayed two nights in a lovely corner room with a view of the ocean and sunset. The room was cosy and comfortable with TV and King bed. The lobby was welcoming with coffee, fresh baked cookies, and a roaring fire in the fireplace. The manager who greeted us was welcoming and helpful....

We stayed here for a weekend to celebrate a friends wedding. The room was nice, comfy bed, nice shower pressure, all the basics were there. Where they really over delivered was on the service- each morning we got a small cooler with pastries, yogurt and juice and the morning paper. The staff was very friendly, able to answer all of...
