We loved this place! Other hotels in the same price range were blocks away from the beach and had terrible reviews, but this one is a terrific find! It is an easy walk to the beach, separated only by a narrow street and row of small beach houses. I loved the ambience of the place: cute and homey with a...

We were on the third floor - with 2 queens - clean, friendly, helpful, great little local place to stay! - large community patio with great seats for reading, or resting while watching and listening to the surf. Cute little areas on 2nd and 3rd floor for reading, snacking. Great little breakfast - free! - Deb in the front office...

The hotel is welcoming and comfortable. Our rooms were clean and up to date. The lobby has an area which offers beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas. We walked maybe a half a block to get to the beautiful beach. Our so lives nearby, so we will be staying here again!

Just a short walk from Sunset Beach (a block or so). Clean, relaxing beach. Starbucks is just cross the main street. Room was clean and comfortable! There was yummy popcorn in the lobby, and towels/toys/chairs/boogie boards to use. This was super convenient and thoughtful. There was also a variety of games. Staff was friendly. It was quiet and relaxing there....

I would give it above average if it was available. The Inn is on Sunset Beach approximately 6 miles north from Huntington Beach and south of Seal Beach. Nice quiet location. The room was comfortable and clean. Small patio off room with chairs to enjoy time. Our room (305 I think) was a corner room with a view of the...

The beds were very comfortable and the ocean breezes coming in during the evening were so wonderful. But if you go in May or June hoping to spend a morning at the beach prepare for May Gray and June Gloom as per the weatherman. This means cold mornings and the sun doesn't break through til around 2pm. Things were peaceful...

They were very pleasant to deal with. The employee at the front desk to the people that maintained the facility were friendly and professional. I would stay there again, and recommend to a friend. We also like that this motel is close do some of the best breakfast places in Sunset Beach.
