This was a very comfortable and cozy room, facing the ocean. Well appointed. The Jacuzzi tub was a nice amenity. Mary at the front desk was fabulous, helpful, cheerful. I would go back and stay a few nights in order to enjoy the ocean boardwalk which was very popular.

We stopped here on our way to LA from Monterey as part of our Pacific Coast Highway drive. We arrived late at this inn (after 10pm). The office was closed, but there is a manager on site. There is a button at the door of the office to call the manager, who responded immediately and gave us the key to...

We were on a 1000 mile motorcycle trip. Tired and cranky we pulled into this cute little Inn. Upon checking in they gave us a free bottle of wine. (we don't drink so they gave us sparkling cider.) The room was cute with a great view of the ocean. There is alway fresh coffee in the hallway right outside the...

This place is just sad. Old, out-dated, smelly, YUK! Not even the cockroaches want to stay here. Maybe new owners need to be found and do a complete renovation on the place. Take my advise and sleep in your car. You'll be glad you did.

In late 1983, I use to get away, or should say run away on weekends at least three times a year right from work on Fridays. One year I decided to drive down this street named Moonstone, having seen it many times before I reached Hearst Castle. It was late when I saw some lights on in the office and...

Well, I can see things haven't gotten better in a year (the last review). We were the only ones staying here, I guess that should have been a clue. We got a fairly good rate at this motel and the man who checked us in (I think the owner) said it was his best room. Wow, the other rooms must...

DO NOT STAY HERE! Its simply awful. There are so many good hotels on Moonstone and on the Central Coast. The lady at the desk is a miserable host and doesn't like Europeans or any visitors for that matter.

We stayed one night and the views were good, the location awesome, but the room felt like a night at Grandmas. Older furnishings, seemed a little dusty. Broken curtains! The perks were fresh baked cookies, a tray with breakfast delivered in the morning, the spa, and the price. The dissapointments were the crotchity older lady in the office, the kindy...

Where do I even start??? This place was one of the worst experiences of my life. There are so many negatives to it that I do not even know where to start. My husband had driven all day and needed somewhere to stay and following the advice of the Lonely Planet that Moonstone Beach was a good place to stay...

A cute place on the outside, but beware when you enter their guest rooms. The rooms are so outdated and dirty, even the wall hangings are clumped with dust (see my pictures for proof). This is one of those places that you need to bring your own sheets and pillows. When we removed the sheets to check it there were...
