My favorite place to stop on my way down the coast (Spyglass park/beach) just got better. This hotel is very easy to access, right off the 101 and is the perfect halfway spot between the Bay Area and Los Angeles. Our room was freshly remodeled, and nicely done with a deck that looks out over the beach and ocean. Fire... More

We went here early in the morning. My wife had the country omelet and I had biscuits and gravy. Both were excellent. Service was very good and friendly. Very attentive. The restaurant was quiet where you could have a nice conversation. Would go here again.

We weren't very hungry but decided to stop at the Spy Glass for a quick bite. It was a bit windy but we ate on the outside patio behind the glass. Stand heaters were in use. The view of the ocean was nice. We tried their Bloody Mary's which I recommend. We shared their lobster/shrimp taco's with beans which was... More

We stopped here on a trip up the coast for my birthday dinner. The patio offers fantastic views of the Pacific ocean sunsets. The inside is tired looking in need of upgrading as it is dark and not updated for todays type of restaurants. The food is good but not excellent. Our food was warm but not hot! My wife... More

We had lunch on my birthday and sat outside overlooking the cove. Very beautiful views and we even saw dolphins swimming by! The food was very nice, great choice of options, lots of salads and good fish selection. We shared the grilled octopus starter which was really delicious, chargrilled and very tasty. We then had an ahi tuna salad and... More

We had a late breakfast here. Wait staff were very good - attentive but not hovering. We got a window table and the view was fabulous. Wouldn't have minded if the food was only mediocre because it was a great location. BUT the food was very good. Lattes were great. Both our breakfasts were excellent. Certainly a place we will...
