“The Perfect Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed here to celebrate his birthday weekend. We wanted a nice weekend together and that is exactly what we got here. We are from the Central Valley so the weather change was nice. The Inn itself is gorgeous. The owners just finished renovating it and they did an awesome job! You will not find another place like this. It is very secluded, quiet, romantic and has gorgeous scenery.We enjoyed sitting on our private deck every morning and watching the sunrise. Our room had a little fridge, a microwave, and supplied wine glasses for our nights down in the spa. The rooms were also very spacious and even had a little seating area right by the window to view the meadows. The Inn is right outside of town so it was close to everything. We had never been to the area before and the people at the desk were more than helpful in pointing us in the direction of great food, attraction sites, and of the famous glass beach. We stayed for 3 nights and we did not want to leave. The people were friendly and the beds were comfy! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect getaway.

Room Tip: Every room is different and is filled with different great amenities. I would definitely book your r...

My wife and I chose to stay at the Cleone Gardens Inn based on reviews and proximity to the beach. It had just gone through a one year renovation, so everything is brand new, and spotless! The bed was so comfortable we didn't want to get out of it in the morning! The room had its own deck with patio furniture, and the back had a huge grass area flanked by woodsy areas with paths that you can take a morning walk through. There's also a spa that you can relax in after a long day of doing "touristy stuff".
Its very close to the beach, and the AMAZING botanical gardens. There's also an awesome fish 'n chips place close by too.
The owner was very nice and told us of a lot of places to check out and take pictures.

We would highly recommend staying here for anyone looking for a peaceful getaway. We can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: There's only one floor, and everything is brand new. Its really quiet at night, and they yard th...

The inn is conveniently located on Highway 1. The garden offers a relaxing atmosphere. My wife and I stayed one night but this is not the kind of inn where you stay only one night. There is a full kitchen and a bathroom and a living room. My room was decorated with authentic chinese arts. It is a perfect place for a full family to relax. This inn offers a great getaway from busy life. To get the best experience, I would recommend you to stay for one whole week.

I love the location of this Inn! It sits on the west side of HWY 1 and you can take what feel's like a secret trail right to a sandy beach that goes for miles. The Inn itself is about 5 miles north of town with a very low key and romantic setting. We were looking for a private weekend not wanting to see people when we were at the place we were staying and this Inn fit our needs perfectly. THE best part of all is we have a GREAT DANE and the owner greeted our dog with open arms! It is always a challenge to find a nice pet friendly hotel but most don't consider a Great Dane a pet and we approach most offices to check in you can see the dislike of our large dog but not at the Cleone Gardens they treated us all so kindly.

We stayed in the Novarrow suite for six nights from July 29th to August 3rd. It felt like we were staying in our own little house. It was quiet and peaceful with a wonderful view of woods. The suggestions in a book left on the table for guests sent us to beautiful places we wouldn't have known existed. We plan on returning again to this unique small inn that is pet friendly.

I would not recommend this place based on a list of bad experiences. Most of all, the owner does not put the customer first. The walls were thin and we could hear conversations in the adjacent rooms all night. There was a puddle of water next to the toilet left over from the cleaner or, worse, the previous guest. One of the other guests' dogs got off leash and charged at us.

We first stayed at the Cleone "Lodge" as it was called back in 1980 for our 7th anniversary. Somehow we didn't make it back until our 37th (raising a family, etc.) 3 years ago. It was awesome to meet the new owners and we even showed them pictures to show what it looked like when we stayed there so long ago! We are now hooked on returning every August to make new memories and enjoy the sun and beach. The rooms are all very nice and sooo comfortable. It is quiet with lovely grounds, a nice hot tub and although you can't see the ocean from the property, you can hear the roar. Paula and Kathy are awesome ladies that do everything to make sure you are happy with your stay. There is some road noise if you are up front, so we bring a little fan for "white noise"......we live up in the foothills on a dead end road on 2 acres so aren't used to any noise other than the deer chewing our lawn! They are in the process of remodeling on one end and we can't wait to go back and see the finished rooms. It is certainly worth our 5 1/2 drive for the wonderful time to relax and enjoy such a beautiful part of the coastline.

Room Tip: The Lupine room has a super comfy king bed with a memory foam top!
