The Sea and Sand Inn staff are very helpful, professional and friendly. The fresh cookies, popcorn, ice tea and lemonade were a welcome treat in the afternoon.
Pros: Great location, beautiful views of the ocean, wharf and Boardwalk. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean and the bathroom is spacious. Lots of nice areas to sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Heavy curtains on the windows block out much of the light from the street and early monring sun.
Cons: Our room was downstairs and next to the security gate. You can hear your neighbor upstairs walking around. Every time the security gate is opened it makes a noise behind the headboard of the bed just because of its location to the gate. The hotel is located on a busy street and your bedroom and bathroom windows face the main traffic area so you have lots of foot and car traffic all day and night. You also are blessed with a stop sign outside the window so you will hear cars/motorcycles stopping and starting. Early in the morning you get the noise of foot traffic i.e. surfers chatting, walkers etc. The other noise you will hear is the barking of the seals at the wharf. Each room is allowed one parking space and they are not preassigned. Parking is on a first come first serve basis which isn't a problem unless you aren't very good about parallel parking. Several parking spaces will require you to be very very good at parallel parking. No direct beach access. You must leave the property, walk down the hill to access the beach.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The ocean-front Sea & Sand Inn has always been popular with savvy out-of-towners, but a major renovation in 2009 has added a whole new “wow” factor. Three new luxury king spa rooms with ocean view balconies were added; two spacious family cottages with private hot tubs and three other spa rooms were also upgraded. All 22 rooms have a fantastic ocean front view of sparkling Monterey Bay. ... more less
