The updated pet friendly room was clean and had amazing views. The free breakfast was really good and a great perk!! It is close to the highway & has a little road noise but...

This hotel was wonderful! We stayed there on our second night of our road trip down the central coast and it was lovely. Great property, perfect views of the water that made for a lovely sunset, very nice and comfy clean rooms, really could not have asked for more! Easy to get into town to go get dinner, ample parking,...

We stayed at the inn for two nights during our PCH tour. One night would have been plenty! Beach access is closed and it is difficult to get to park next door. Town is cute but pricey for a small town. Found same items in San Fran for half the price. Loved proximity to SLO. Breakfast was great, pool was...

Great place to stay from beginning to end! Highlights were the view, first and foremost. Room was clean and spacious, complimentary breakfast had local flavors, staff was extremely friendly, offering hot chocolate and cookies at night, hotel was close proximity to everything, and parking was free and easy. Would choose to stay here every time!

Nice place, great view and proximity to the ocean. Rooms are updated nicely. Good value overall. We were disappointed that the hot tub is not buy luke warm. Was really looking forward to a good soak after a long hike, we passed on using it after checking the temp.

I had to leave my room and go out and around to walk to the jaccuzi! when it was 20 feet away! I found this to be very annoying to say the least. I have stayed at martin resorts in avilla and paso I thought I would be a similar expierence, not cool!

You know how it is. A lot of times, the hotel posts pictures that make you book instantly, only to get to the place and all is not what was advertised. Not so with Inn At The Cove. I booked an Oceanfront King Upper Level, and yep, the pictures on the website were the same. Mr. Seagull even stopped by...

The rooms are Clean and well equipped. Very comfortable and great ocean views. Staff was great. And offer discount when not using maid service when there for multiple day stay.
