Fantastic, great staff, clean property. Amazing yard for our dog & walking distance to everything. This far exceeded our expectations,, we will be back. It was ideal mid-week getaway from the hustle & bustle of the city and a view of one of the best surf breaks in the state! The binoculars in the room were very appreciated and allowed... More

If you love nature and the sea this is the perfect place for you to stay. The room was so clean and well kept. The service impecable. From the room, the harbor is visible. Close by are nature trails and state parks. Already planning my return visit.

Stayed here with my boyfriend. Lovely romantic getaway. They think of everything: from providing robes and different glassware, to a lovely "romance" package of wine and chocolates, to thoughtful bathroom amenities like q-tips and makeup remover pads and a delightful tub big enough for two. Each room overlooks the harbor and has patio chairs. Loved this place!

In an area where affordable AND comfortable accommodation are hard to find, The Inn at Maverick's seems to fill a void. This is a simple place in the Princeton area - no grand driveway and actually a little tricky to find. But once here it fits the bill. We had a ground floor room with a private patio overlooking the... More

Plus: Great room on the second floor with a great view of the harbor. Clean and well-furnished with quality stuff. Gas fireplace. Comfy king-size bed. Open the front door and the sliding glass door and enjoy the ocean air breeze through the room. Minus: That damn foghorn made me close the sliding glass door. No tea in the room. OK,... More

We enjoyed a relaxing stay at the Inn at Maverick's. It's very dog friendly, with a little private yard right outside out sliding glass door and a little patio. It's right on the harbor. There was a snack basket for us, as well as for our Lacey girl.

This is the second time we have stayed at Inn at Mavericks and we will definitely stay again in the future. Great location - close to San Francisco (30 mins or so) without the hubbub of the big city. You can walk to just about anything you want to see in town. The staff is extremely helpful and very pleasant.... More

The Inn at the Mavericks is lovely. It was exceptionally quiet (except for the appropriate fog horn), immaculately clean and a gorgeous view. The cleaning ladies were very accommodating and helpful.

There was a problem with the TV in the Mavericks room. This problem was with the cable box itself, not the actual TV. The picture was set to "ZOOM" whenever it was on an HD channel.
