The Dream Inn is many things, and "dreamy" is certainly one of them… well, that depends on what kind of dreams you have. Personally, my experience at the so-called Dream Inn is one I will never forget. As you first arrive, you are greeted with a stunning view of the New York landscape with a colossal representation of the Statue... More

Great small motel on the beach. Nothing fancy but very laid back with everything you need. Owners are awesome- so welcoming! Right on the beach with a kid friendly pool. Also used the BBQ to cook out.

We were kind of skeptical coming into to this hotel because of the reviews. We arrived @ midnight and owner was very nice-left his cell # so we could check in. Our room was excellent-4 beds and chair sleeper with full kitchen! It was the largest room we had on trip with great rates! The room itself is dated but... More

I stayed at Dream Inn and we loved it. The view is beautiful, the staff is wonderful, everything was clean. I could go on and on. Very close to several nice little restaurants. The pool was clean. I LOVE the dolphin statues. The jacuzzi room is the best room!

If the 'little things' bother you, then this isn't the place for you. I booked my stay based on the reviews here and the fact the property was featured on the Travel Channel. I found the property to be slightly less than what I expected, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt because of it's age. I found... More

Thank you for your review I am glad you had a good time. You are correct in assuming if you would have let me know I would have fixed your little problems but they should not have been there to begin with. I am sorry they got overlooked before your arrival and they have been fixed. More

This is our 2nd time to stay here. That says a lot. Jody is the man to ask for when making your reservation. We stayed in Room 224 and it was the best. Upstairs, beachfront, on the end. Needs updating, but any of these little mom/pop hotels that are still left, do. But it is very clean, beds are comfy... More

We LOVED our stay at Dream Inn! It has that old time beach charm that can't be beat. It's location is just perfect, our view from our ocean front room of the sunrise was just breathtaking.
