My adult kids and I decided to extend our stay in Seaside, so we stayed at the WaterColor Inn. The service is excellent, accommodations are first rate, staff is amazing! The restaurant, Fish Out of Water, had an absolutely gourmet breakfast menu. The veggie omelet is great. We also ate there for dinner. It's pricey, but then, the whole resort...

When I made the reservation, I let them know that we would be arriving on my husband's 70th birthday and that our 3 year wedding anniversary was two days after that. The staff greeted us with a warm happy birthday wish for my husband and later sent a fruit basket to our room with a nice card. Everything about the...

We stayed here for a few nights before our vacation rental was ready and loved every second of it! The resort grounds are beautiful and unique and our room (on the second floor overlooking the pool with a view of the ocean) was large and very well decorated in a southern cottage-y style. The higher up your room is, the...

We stayed here for 7 days! We fell in love with Watercolor Inn, it has a great little village feel with it's own shopping and restaurants. We arrived a little early but we asked if the room was ready anyway, at that time we were told it will be ready on time, not a big deal, we were early. To...

What a wonderful place! The room was fantastic. From the decor, to the ample storage space, to the soft and feathery bed...we fell in love! And don't get me started with the amazing view and the humongous shower. A view FROM the shower! We could have stayed in the room and all it's coziness, since the weather was pretty cold....
