The Inn at the Cove

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 weeks ago

Inn at the cove was a lovely hotel and catered for everything we needed for our 2 night stay. We chose this hotel as a stop gap as we drove from Los Angeles to San Francisco and it was just what was needed. A lovely hotel with amazing views. Hotel was slightly out of town and probably about a 20 min walk from the main shops and restaurants.

Thank you for your review of the Inn at the Cove on Tripadvisor. We enjoy being far enough from town to avoid the crowds, yet close enough to be within reach of everything it has to offer. Please come and see us again the next time you are travel through the Central Coast.

We loved this cozy-feel place with spectacular views everywhere you looked. Our room was lovely, and spacious and though billed as having a partial ocean view, it had GREAT ocean views and also of the pool and hot tub below which were nicely landscaped. With the ocean and bluffs beyond the pool's glass enclosure, the view looked like a painting. The nearby restaurant, Ventana Grill had similar ocean views so we got to enjoy the views even during Happy Hour and dinner.

Just a beautiful setting with pelicans and a variety of wildlife just at your fingertips. Staff is friendly, efficient and helpful. The surroundings are kept up very nicely and walking the grounds is extremely relaxing in itself.

The inn is situation in an amazingly scenic location and our ocean facing room was lovely! The small balcony was perfect for whale and pelican watching and relaxing during the sunset. I would definitely recommend!

Easy to park, welcoming receptionist with a glass of wine on check in. On entering the room we were greeted with a bottle of wine for our anniversary , very large clean and bright bedroom, large bathroom , Fantastic view looking directly out to the sea, great balcony which we sat and drank our wine. Just outside the room there are some romantic swinging chairs which we were able to use and relax on for a while. Lots of seagulls , pelicans and little rabbits hopping around outside. Breakfast was included and self service , croissants, breads, cereals and yogurts. There was a swimming pool which looked nice but we did not have time to use. I would recommend this hotel .

Room Tip: Looking out to the sea
