Rooms are accommodating, beds are comfortable, and bathroom is average size. Wifi worked great during our stay. Breakfast basket each morning in your room. No loud noise and beautiful location.

We enjoyed our 4-night stay at the Seaside Inn to the point that we wished we could extend our vacation for a few more days. Our 8-year old son and our 15-year old daughter said this was the best vacation ever :-)! We would have stayed longer, by all means, if it wasn't for the new school year right around... More
