Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We have been staying at the Headlands Inn since 1989 when we spent our first wedding anniversary there. We spent our 20th anniversary there and were just there again to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The staff was very welcoming and we love the breakfasts which are delivered to your room!! We will be back! Always very special.

I paid for the Wilson but they tried giving me the Witzer. Breakfast was the worst. I couldn’t eat their egg casserole (we don’t get why there was no cheese in casserole) and coffee looks like water and tasted like water. They must do better with breakfast please. Room was very clean.
