The South Coast Inn proved to be an absolutely wonderful place to stay in a town that didn't seem to offer much in the way of nice accommodations. I dealt mostly with Michael, who was as friendly and helpful on the phone encouraging us to stay as he was in person. He and his family are extremely organized, confirming my phone reservation within minutes via email and including various useful attachments.
When we arrived, we were offered beverages, tips about where to go for dinner, and shown the snack drawer. We stayed in the Angel Room, which was full of angel-themed art, books, and knick knacks. It was extremely homey. The entire house, in fact, was full of plants, books, and interesting things to look at. There were plenty of books and movies to borrow. Everything was very clean and the Internet was fast. The home cooked breakfast was delicious, and Michael was very careful to make sure we could eat everything he planned to serve.
Overall, an extremely pleasant stay. We couldn't have asked for more! If we are ever back in the area, we will certainly choose to stay at South Coast again!
