We enjoyed our stay. View was wonderful, breakfast service was right on time. When we needed an answer they were prompt and had a smile on. We come every year because of the good service and clean room.

Very nice stay at the Dream Inn. The Waves crashing ashore all night were excellent to sleep to and location is wonderful. This was a Honeymoon adventure and it did not disappoint. We had room service also and the food was excellent.

No resort fees, however parking is an additional $28 per day. It is an hours drive to Monterey/Carmel.Best beachfront hotel on the coast in that area.
