From the moment we entered the building, the staff did everything they could to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Anything we needed, they made sure we had. The room was well-kept and comfortable, the location was convenient to the historic area, the beach was just on the other side of the street, and there is even a bench where... More

Has ocean easy ocean access and pleasant staff. For a night or two to enjoy the beach with a tour into town could be a good choice. You need a car because the tour transport is only to 4 pm. Otherwise cabs are required. No eating spots and does not have a vending machine. No phone in room and no... More

New owners took over about two years ago and they have made nice improvements. This is a small hotel and you want to be on the second floor for a view. Only negative is that there is no elevator and I'm getting too old to drag my bags up the stairs. :P The complimentary breakfast is fine. After all, you're... More

I stayed here because I attended a writer's conference nearby. This hotel is a bit dated, part of its charm, and it's well-maintained. The staff is cheerful, helpful and kind. Guests seem to like chatting together over breakfast in the cozy nook. My room was on the second floor, with a view of the ocean, just across the road. The... More

Very nice room.They were pleasant, cheerful, and made us and our dogs feel very welcome. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It's a nice getaway and vacation spot, and you're right across from the beach, which is really nice and dog-friendly!

We booked a 3 night stay for a wedding event. The room was quaint and accommodating. The mini kitchen was the biggest perk. The staff was friendly and eagar to make our stay comfortable. We enjoyed the breakfast and the views. Great value!! Thanks Stacy and staff!

Very friendly & accommodating place! Was in town for a destination wedding. Late night arrival, very pleasant upon check in, recommending nearby restaurants for a late night dinner. Upon checkout, Stacey made it easy & convenient for us as we were in a rush to head to the wedding. Thank you Stacey!! Great location if you want to be on... More

Four of us (2 adults, 2 kids) enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is a momma and poppa type, rather old but OK. There's a decent pool. The main road, which you have to cross to access the beach, is quite busy and noisy. Ask for a room near the pool rather than near the road. Breakfast is in the... More

My husband and I stayed here for an anniversary weekend getaway and loved it! They are in a great location across from the beach and a short drive to Old Town. The oversized jacuzzi room was very nice and comfortable. We will be returning for another weekend getaway in the near future

I booked this place based I the Trip Advisor reviews and I regret it. The place is seriously run down, smells on the hall and stairs, just funky. Carpets are dirty, just plain depressing. I booked a hotel with a view to the ocean, second floor. You are hearing cars go by all day and night, it's really view to... More
