Completely overpriced and oversold for what it really is. This is an extremely old inn and the ONLY thing it has going for it is the view - which by the way you can't even access (the beach) from the property. Yes it is on a cliff and yes the view of the waves is nice. The staff is nice also but overall it's NOT worth the price especially because everything else SUCKS! the shower is a tiny cubical with a very low shower head and the water is not hot at all. Shower liner is all rust and the room is quite small. Cheapest toilet paper one can find! It's so thin you ain't even grab it it keeps breaking. The mini fridge froze all my food and there is not even a basic coffee machine in the room. The pool is ok and there is no room to lounge around it. There is a restaurant on site which apparently gets very busy due to the view and it also is very overpriced. We will not be back and I would not recommend this place at all unless you pay less than $100 per night.

The private beach is a wonderful feature, and the location allows you to feel that you have the ocean almost to yourself!

Beautiful view of the ocean. Lovely to hear the waves all night. Excellent staff. Great food at the restaurant. To go breakfast was huge. Room was decorated nicely but basic updates needed. Small shower stall. Water temperature kept fluctuating in the shower. Bring your own toilet paper unless you like very very thin one ply. I felt guilty using so much but I had to to get the job done.

Location location location. Doesn’t get any better the rooms could definitely use some updating. But it was clean. Being right on the beach when you walk out your door is amazing.The restaurant had really good food. We had a wonderful weekend.
