We treated my Brother in law to golf for his 60th birthday at Pebble Beach & Spyglass. Initially, I was not aware that you had to stay within the Pebble Beach resorts in order to play Pebble. (you can also try calling last minute for a cancelled tee time, but since we were flying in from out of town, taking that chance was not a option) My husband choose Inn at Spanish Bay for our 2 nights stay. It is an 'investment' to stay and play there, however Spanish Bay accommodations did not disappoint. Being a special occasion, the Inn upgraded our rooms to oceanfront (we had reserved oceanview rooms). Our rooms were on an upper level, with balconies overlooking the first tee and the Pacific Ocean. Views were magnificent, almost spiritual. (for maximum benefit and enjoyment, you MUST get an ocean view or ocean front room) Bagpiper played at 5:45 each evening right below us and on first tee box and along the fairway. To see and hear 'America the Beautiful' played on bagpies on the first tee, overlooking the ocean, was awe inspiring and something I will never forget. Goosebumps. Rooms were well appointed, as they should be, with every amenity you can think of. (However interesting sidenote: Rooms do not have air conditioning, but circulating fans worked fine and kept the room comfortable) King bed very comfortable. Loved the balcony. Did not use the fireplace. Large sized hair and body products, robes and fully stocked bar & fridge. 'Free' snacks and sodas & water, and for-charge alcohol. Staff all around was attentive.
I would categorize the style and feel of the resort as 'Comfortable, relaxed, high end California casual, with some elegant flare in the lobby and common areas. Great boardwalk paths that lead from the resort to the ocean. Loved walking the beach early on a overcast mornin. We enjoyed Roy's for dinner at sunset, along with the seating and fire pits outside. As compared to Pebble Beach Lodge accommodations and grounds, I much preferred the Inn at Spanish Bay. (P.B. Lodge was much busier and, to me, perhaps a bit more 'uppity') Was able to fully relax and enjoy the grounds, views and rooms at Spanish Bay.
Golfers side note: Played both Pebble and Spyglass - foggy off and on, but that is to be expected along the ocean. Perhaps a noon or later tee time may give the fog more time to burn off. Guys played at 10 am and 8 am.
Bucket List. Check. Loved it.
