Verified Reviews of Balboa Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Amazing location but nothing else to share that was positive."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Unfortunately, the owners of this property have allowed it to become run down and unpleasant. They charge an “amenity” fee but do not have any amenities to speak of (beach towels were old, dingy bath towels, one old beach chair to borrow that took awhile to locate, old tables and chairs randomly placed on property with tablecloths thrown on top to cover wear and tear, no fire pits or warming lamps, etc.). The hallways were filthy, the rooms were dark and beds/pillows were uncomfortable, the refrigerator froze our leftovers, the bath towels looked circa 1980 old, dingy white and fraying). NOT worth the price AT ALL!
