I stayed here for one night whilst travelling between LA and San Francisco. Whilst I was travelling alone, this adults only hotel is clearly set up for couples.
The staff on the desk were helpful and friendly, and my standard King Size room at the back of the property was very pleasant. It was large, beautifully decorated with a lovely atmospheric fireplace, a clean and compact bathroom with lovely toiletries, cookes, chocolates and a great coffee machine all there ready for me to enjoy. In the morning my breakfast was delivered to my room, which was a really nice way of doing it. Very nice.
The location of the hotel, adjacent to Moonstone Beach, is a wonderful location. I enjoyed a stroll along the beachfront to watch the seals, and wandered down to the shore to watch the sunset. All this would have been much more fun if I had had my beau along with me for the trip. Indeed, from the guest book in my hotel room, many of the previous occupants seem to have been happy couples on their honeymoon.
All in all I thought this hotel was really lovely. The only things stopping me from giving it 5 spots on my review was that my room wasn't ready at the check in time of 3pm. I had to wait until 3.30pm until they had finished cleaning it, which really isn't acceptable when the advertised check in time is 3. Furthermore, I could not get the wifi to work on my iPad. The very helpful desk staff attempted to assist me, but to no avail. I'm not sure why the wifi in this place was an issue, but being so far away from home it's really a dealbreaker for me to be able to get onto my email and be able to Skype my loved-ones.
