We found the place to be clean and tidy. I recon it was good value for money. The only detraction was the breakfast area. It was located in the lobby which is not the biggest. Luckly we were there at a quiet time but if it had have been busy it would have been quite congested. The owners were very...

Sandpiper Inn is a good value for the money. Very clean, comfortable bed, nice storage space in the bath area. Large room. Quiet location. Wifi very slow, bath towels thin. I would stay here again. It was very adequate for the price. Service was good. Pet friendly a real plus.

Very nice place for when traveling with your pets. Very clean and efficient! If you are not worried about having a place that looks like the Ritz and just care about the character, being clean, close to all restaurants and excursions and pet friendly; not to mention it's safe and pricing affordable. I would recommend Sandpiper.

Good location, when sitting outside the room have a great view while having breakfast at one of the lovely seats placed there by the owners. The rooms were quiet, could not hear the neighbours next door or above us. Overall, the owners did their best to make all attractive and they almost succeeded, if not for the not so great...

Stayed here for one night travelling from San Francisco to LA. Very good value. Very clean but needs a bit of updating, new upholstery on chairs etc. Owners are very friendly. Free breakfast is a choice of breakfast cereals and muffins hot drinks and juices to collect from reception and take back to the room.

We are traveling north up the California coast from San Diego to WA state. We just needed a room for the night & this was the only one I could find. It is old & dated with a musty odor, but clean & fine for a stop over. The WiFi would not connect.

I stayed here w/ the Mrs. while going up and back from the Desert to Monterey. 3 nights total. The room is good enough but small, beds & bedding were fine. Watching the sunset from the balcony was priceless. My only complaint would be with the Owners, Super Customer Service, and Nice, but they really need to spend time walking...

My wife and I recently stayed here for three nights. The room was spacious, but not high end. Everything worked and it was clean. The "breakfast" isn't much. It would be nice if they offered some fresh fruit. Toaster waffles would also be a plus. Location just a few blocks from town.
