Dolphin Cove Motel
Very Good8.0
Great little friendly motel!
The staff was so friendly! Our room was very clean and the location was steps away from the beach and great restaurants! We can’t wait to go back. My biggest complaint was that the Farmer Brother’s coffee was horrible in our room. The tea selection and creamer option in the lobby was great though!

Our room was on the second floor, the view amazing! Great to hear the ocean during the night.

A great deal for staying right by the ocean.

Dolphin Cove Motel
Quite the opposite of the stay in San Francisco, this motel is very loud in a very good way. The roar of the ocean put me to sleep as soon as I laid down. Woke in the morning with the light still on, and my book under my hand. Fantastic.
