Do all of your rooms have views of the ocean?
Yes, but not all of our eight rooms have the same view. The four rooms in our Upper Building have panoramic views of the hills, the bay, and the ocean. The four rooms in our Lower Building have territorial views, with the hills on the left and the ocean on the right.
Which room has the best view?
It depends on what you want to see! The Upper Building rooms have a panoramic view. The Lower Building rooms, which are closer to the bay and the ocean, are better for whale watching.
Are you a motel or a bed-and-breakfast?
The Ocean Cove Inn is a boutique motel, not a bed-and-breakfast. Although breakfast is not included in our room rate, each of our guest rooms has a coffee maker, along with complimentary coffee and granola bars. (Some travel and trip review websites list us as a B&B because we do not meet their criteria for a hotel or motel. We apologize for any confusion.)
What is the earliest time we can check in?
The earliest check-in time is 4 p.m. If you arrive earlier than 4 p.m., we will be happy to check you in if your room is ready. However, we cannot guarantee early check-ins.
Are you a "green" motel?
While we are not certified as a "green" motel, we have implemented a variety of green-oriented business practices. For example, we provide ceramic coffee cups, not paper cups, in our guest rooms. We make every effort to recycle paper, plastic, and glass and to use environmentally friendly and fragrance-free cleaning products. Also, guests who stay more than one night with us may request to not have their towels and bed linen changed daily.
