Blue Dolphin Inn was a wonderful property for our overnight stay back to LA. Right across the street from Moonstone beach where you can go for walks or watch the surfers from their balcony. The rooms were huge and very clean. The front desk and staff were super friendly. We will definitely stay here again. Plus they pet friendly at $25 a night and our pup Pablo had his own bed and bowls ready upon arrival! But book ahead of time as they only have 2 pet-friendly rooms. I would highly recommend the Blue Dolphin Inn!

The location was great! Right across the street was the beautiful coast! Great path to walk it!

Great location, clean, every nice rooms and furniture.

Excellent location, clean and well appointed room. Delicious breakfast in the morning. Will definitely return.

Very cute place. Breakfast in the room every morning is an excellent idea. Will definitely come back!

Hotel on the beach. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Everything about this place is amazing. We are already planning another trip. This is a quaint little beach town that makes you want to stay for a week and do nothing but read a book and walk around. The hotel staff could not have done more to make us feel welcome. The breakfast was amazing and the whole place smelled like baked scones in the morning. Would strongly recommend this place without reservation.

Superb stay. Inn and staff are quite remarkable. great hospitality and location!!

I will definitely try to book in advance so we can get one of the much coveted ocean front rooms ~ but it was a lovely boutique hotel. The sweetest treat was the breakfast they deliver in the morning, it was actually delicious and I love that they packed it so we could take it to the beach if we wanted too! Great recommendations for the best beach to find moonstones & jade, great recommendation for restaurants, WOW don't miss Linn's! Especially the pie!

Totally exceeded our expectations. Only issue was room was WAY too hot & had no thermostat

We were on a trip up/down the West Coast and stopped here for two nights. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the (hot) breakfast was delivered right to our door in a portable container so we could take it along with us or sit outside at the beach. There is a beautiful boardwalk that extends a portion of Moonstone Beach right outside the hotel. They brought cookies to our room one night, and everything was so comfortable, including the fireplace. This is one of the best places I have stayed.

We would stay again! It's the little things that you notice that go a long way. When was the last time you were personally escorted to your room, had cookies and breakfast delivered to your door? Really great place to stay, very calming and peaceful. The only complaint we had was that the room got a little muggy/stuffy even with the windows open and the fan on. But other than that; excellent place to stay and we will be back again!
