Positive Reviews

Oceanfront location is just perfect.

Having beautiful Moonstone Beach and Leffingwell Cove right across the street is of course a real treat. As well as affording you the chance to partake in all manner of seaside treats, the associated boardwalk lets you enjoy a lovely stroll along the coast into town. Perfect.

Staff are very friendly.

The staff here are a real credit to the hotel they work in. Affable, positive and always ready to help, these are the kind of people you'd choose to find working in a hotel of this kind.

Some truly memorable views.

It's great that most of the guest accommodations here afford sweeping views over the ocean. However, even if you only get a partial view from your room, you can still enjoy the best Pacific vistas as you can sit on the front lawn and watch the sun set each night from the comfort of the Castle Inn's comfy Adirondack chairs. Just wonderful.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast room is a little too cozy.

The complementary breakfast is fine and dandy; however, the room it's served in really is pretty small. Don't be surprised to find tables and chairs at a premium during busy periods!

Very little soundproofing.

There's no getting away from the fact the partition walls between guest rooms are pretty thin here. Pack some earplugs and pray you don't get allocated a room next to some noisy neighbors.

No air-conditioning.

Yep, it's pretty likely that you'll notice the lack of air-conditioning whenever those pleasant Pacific breezes aren't around to help cool things down..
