Our stay at this lovely cottage hotel was delightful. Many years ago, it used to be apartments, so as a result, many of the units have a little kitchenette, like ours did. We stayed in the King Courtyard room, which was roomy, it also had a fireplace, sink and vanity separate from the toilet and bath/shower, and plenty of charm.... More

My husband had booked this hotel over two months ago to celebrate our anniversary in SB, needless to say, it was nothing like we expected, given the price or website images. The pro's; location is near the west end of the boardwalk, so it's great for walking, inn was clean and had basic amenities, good water pressure in shower but... More

We stayed in the king balcony room (room 24) for one night recently. The room itself was very simple with few decorations. However, as others have noted, I found the king bed very comfortable. There were plenty of pillows as well. The room came with all basic amenities (though no hair condition). A few caveats: expecting a regular balcony, we... More

I stayed in Room 27 for one night in February. It's a Queen room with an entrance right off of Mason. The room itself felt like a studio cottage minus a kitchen. Very cozy, modern, clean and quiet. AND NO CARPET! YAY! The sink was located in the bedroom. The bathroom had a window, towel rack, toilet and shower. The... More

Had a great stay, staff very friendly and welcoming. Wine and cheese in afternoon, milk and cookies later! Nice breakfast. Also a free bottle of champagne! Best were free bike use to ride down to beach. Only negative is that the hotel is quite a distance from beach area and shops; long walk but a nice bike ride

Casa Del Mar Inn is certainly ideally located, however, it does not offer the amenities I expected given the price we were paying. For example, there are only a few dedicated parking spots. Otherwise, you are on your own to locate street parking and must get a parking pass from them early Saturday morning if you don't want to get... More

The privacy here is amazing! So quaint, cozy and quiet, perfect for the Business Traveler. The layout of the rooms facilitate a great work environment. Beds are comfy, everything is pristine. Liked it so much I booked another week! Really glad my co-worker referred me to this hidden Gem!

We arrived from the train and were tired as we had been travelling all day. Lizzie who was on reception was very welcoming and answered all our questions fully. It is a lovely hotel with lovely rooms and a beautiful courtyard area. The breakfast is just what you want and the evening reception of wine and cheese is a fantastic... More

Recently stayed overnight at the Casa Del Mar Hotel. Only a 5 minute walk to the waterfront and a 10 minute walk to State Street and all the shops and restaurants that line that street. The hotel was clean and the room was large (as was the bathroom). There was no problem with noise even though the entrance to our... More

It all about the location! Walking distance to the beach and plenty of restaurants around. It's just a bike ride away to State Street where the shops and boutiques are. This B&B is nice and quaint. The property is clean and well maintained. The rooms are small but nice, with clean sheets and soft pillows. They serve wine and cheese... More
