Step out of the ordinary. Inn on the Beach is a botique hotel located right on the sand. Lodgings with views are numerous, very few are Ocean Front. Our rooms offer balcony or patio, gas fireplaces, flat screen lcd tv's, and refrigerators. A continental breakfast is provided each morning.

We loved our stay. We were married in town and wanted a private sunset. The staff was super friendly and our room was right on the sand. The sound of the waves at night was just perfect. We highly recommend the hotel!!

This place was amazing and just what my family needed! It's on the beach and with two kids I was able to just walk back and forth to the hotel, take breaks from the beach and go back. The inside is outdated and at first I wondered why they wouldn't update it but by the end of the trip and seeing all the sand we brought back to the hotel with us, I probably wouldn't update either. There are delishes places to eat right behind the hotel. Once you park you don't have to drive again! The staff is so nice and helpful. We plan to stay here again.

... great location with a great view! Staff was always wonderful! Facility is showing some wear and tear, probably mostly because of proximity to the ocean, and it could use some sprucing up, but our room was comfortable. We will definitely be back!

Inn on the Beach is the perfect getaway! Relaxing, beautiful view, comfortable beds and soft linens. After reading other reviews I was a little worried. Yes, the Inn is a little older, but it is quaint and charming. You can't beat the location and it is quite comfortable. Great rates for being right on the beach! The staff was friendly and accommodating. Great restaurants within easy walking distance. We stayed Sunday-Tuesday so it was quiet and relaxing. All around just a great place to stay! We'll be back!

If you want a perfect location right on the beach, this is the place. The staff was very nice and helpful. The continental breakfast had cereal, coffee and pastries. The room was adequate due to state of repair and cleanliness. The bed was very comfortable. All the rooms have a beach view and the sunsets were lovely. We sat on our balcony and enjoyed the view. If you are a traveler who spends little time in the room this is s good place.

We really liked being right on the beach. The staff was friendly and helpful and even made us some afternoon coffee. The morning cereal, pastries, juice, and good coffee was just fine for sitting out on our balcony having breakfast. Later, we enjoyed the sunset from our balcony with a glass of wine - just right! The beach is clean for our several long peaceful walks. Our room was a little worn and could use some maintenance and as others have noted, the room and hallway carpets badly needed a good cleaning. The bathroom was remodeled and updated and clean. We're not clean nuts and being on the beach is what counted for us. We'll stay there again.

I had a very pleasant experience at this hotel. The entire staff were friendly and helpful. I stayed on the second floor. I loved the view from our room. I left my door open all night and was blessed to hear the ocean. The room needed some sprucing, but I felt comfortable. I would definitely like to return. Beautiful area. I want to move there!!!

The room was clean but dated. The bathroom was clean but the shower temperature was tepid at best. However, it was right on the beach and within walking distance of several shops and restaurants.

As always the Ventura Inn of the Beach was beautiful! Couldn't ask for an easier access mini get-away with a view of the beach!
