The Clam Digger has a great location and every room is ocean front. It was so relaxing to sit on our balcony and enjoy the view at the end of a long day. Our room rate was very reasonable (we stayed after Labor Day). We were only there for one night, so did not have a chance to try the... More

Some negative reviews almost kept us away. So glad we came anyway. Everyone was so nice. Our room and the rest of the hotel were very clean...yes, a tad outdated but who cares. Our view on the fifth floor was amazing! A nice surprise to find the mini fridge in our room! It's just what we hoped for in our... More

Negative comments: 1) the staff at the front desk or other areas (restaurant, outside little bar) could be more welcoming. They don't seem to enjoy their work. A smile is free so I would suggest to their manager that a pep talk about customer service. 2) breakfast was plain tasting. Coffee is not included, so at first hand the 4,95... More

We've been coming to this hotel for about 15 years, when it was a Ramada Inn. Not much has changed. As noted in other reviews, it's a little dated. The flat screen TVs are a relatively recent addition. The bathroom is tiny. But the breakfast and lunch specials at $4.95 can't be beat, especially since they don't skimp on the... More

Perfectly adequate beach lodging. Room was very clean and housekeeping staff was exceptional. Bathroom was very small indeed, as indicated in other reviews. Never saw the first roach, or any other insect, for that matter, also as indicated in another review. Would suggest that an easy chair for reading would be a good addition. Pool was enjoyable and well maintained.

The main thing I'm looking for in a hotel when I come to the beach is an oceanfront room with a balcony, and at the Clamdigger, that's every room they have. The room I had was clean and comfortable, with 2 very firm full size beds, a small microwave and mini fridge, and a nice sized flat screen TV with... More

My husband and I went for a short stay during the week on August 6-9, 2014. The Inn was beautiful, clean and had a restaurant. We really liked the fact that all rooms are oceanfront. Housekeeping was prompt and did a great job. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available for rent daily at a very reasonable rate. Restaurant was good... More

We like this place,and would go back regularly if our daughter had not transferred to a new location. It is dated but this,is part of the charm. The balcony view was awesome and sometimes had a few dolphins . Our sandy beach was clean and not crowded. The food from the restaurant was delicious. I wanted more cozy family style... More

Recent trip...roaches in the room, broken remote. Mgr said remotes broken on purpose so folks wouldn't steal them. No compensation OR apology for the roaches. Have stayed several times in the past and have been happy. Never again...not just because of the roaches but because of poor customer service

The Clam Digger is in an uncrowded area of the beach. My room was clean and quiet, tho the bathroom is really small. Other guests and staff were friendly. Access to the beach is great. A great place to walk and a lot of shells. I'd give it a 4 except it's showing its age and the balcony and bath... More
