I'm always hesitant when booking hotels that accept pets, even though I have a beautiful clean and loving yellow lab that I love to take with us everywhere. This place is centrally located, easy to find, and most importantly ... clean! The check in process was just okay ... the front desk clerk seemed bothered to have to check us... More

The Beachside is a great hotel for family and friends. It's a 10 minute walk to the ferries and town and a 10 minute walk to the Jetties beach. Rooms are average and clean, the staff is friendly and accommodating, the pool is great and offers a lifeguard and towel service, the lawn offers an area to picnic and play,... More

Warning: this place books early! We snagged some of the last rooms when reserving three months ahead. This hotel is ideal for its easy walking distance (and lovely views) to town as well as the Great Point Lighthouse, beaches, and lovely neighborhood. It features a fenced-in pool with lifeguard, lawn, decent foyer with computers and poolside veranda rooms. Rent-a-jeeps appeared... More

Gisele L, we always appreciate the time that our guests take to write of their experience at The Beachside. We have various levels of room types, based upon location and price. The Poolside rooms are the more expensive room types, all with private seating areas outside of the rooms. There are many of our guests whom prefer the least expensive... More

This is a motel. It is not upscale, but it is fine. The people are great. It is near town and near the beach with a nice pool. I would definitely stay here again. Easy walk to the lighthouse beach. Moderate walk from the ferry landings. Very considerate staff.

The beachside is unique in that it is quite expansive and has the convenience of motor lodge style in that you can pull your car close to if not directly in front of your room. Many people who travel with lots of supplies prefer this. I've stayed at the beach side many many times over the years and I remember... More

We picked this place because it was on a list recommended to us. It also allows shorter stays than other places. If you get off the Steamship ferry, you hang a right at the first block and walk for about 10 min and it will be on your left. So it is not that far from downtown. You can hold... More
