The place is quiet, clean and comfortable. The common areas are inviting and reflective. There are a couple of places to eat or get coffee. The side walks in Moss Landing roll up before 9pm. A great place to decompress. One thing that may seem minor but I found I liked. The owners responded to text messages timely.

Room was wonderful, bed could have been a little softer but still good. Staff via phone were friendly and helpful. Check in and check out was easy and seamless.

We stayed in a quaint old room with a huge claw-foot bathtub. At first glance the room is nice enough with a decent view. What we found in our 3 night stay however, is there is no room to store clothes except an amoir with 5 coat hangers. So mostly our clothes were left folded on the floor or in our suitcases. No open flat surfaces to set anything down which means no counter space in the bathroom at all, for anything. The most baffling part of our stay was the staircase in the main house. The confusing part was that every single hardwood step had a loose little rug on it, making going up and down the stairs a little nerve-wracking each time and I never went down without at least one hand free and gripping the railing. Why would they do that? Do they think this is "safer" somehow?

While the Inn and the room were beautiful and clean, we had terrible neighbors and management did nothing to help us. Because of this, it was one of the worst hotel experiences I've ever had. The hotel does state that they have quiet hours starting at 9:30 pm...however, we had upstairs neighbors that checked in at 7:30 pm and did not stop running through their room, moving furniture, and laughing loudly until about 3 am. A certain amount of noise is to be expected in a hotel, especially in an older building...but this was absurd. We were unable to sleep, even playing loud white noise. We called management twice-- once at 11:30, and once at 12:30 am. They said that they spoke to the upstairs neighbors, but there was absolutely no change. There was no offer for further help, and when we let them know that the problem had not improved all they said was "we called them and they said they were sorry." So...long story short, if you're lucky enough to have a quiet neighbor, the hotel is lovely. However, if you have a bad neighbor, management will do nothing to help you. It appears there's no one on site who can go talk to bad actors, and the older buildings will do absolutely nothing to shield sound. It was far too expensive to get zero sleep, so unfortunately we will not be staying here again.
