Perfect place to spend a few nights with your family and your dog. We ate all our meals in the lounge surrounded by really nice people and their well behaved dogs. We even brought our dog down to the bar: he was admired while we enjoyed the bar. Just a short walk from the beach where your dog can run... More

M y wife and I spent several days here with our dogs. Everything was absolutely excellent. Well appointed rooms, comfortable sleeping arrangements, great food, and best of all pet friendly! They will arrange dog sitting, have special meals for pets etc. We liked it so much that we are going back in August.

This is the best place for us when it comes to all of us - including our pup - being spoiled and made to fee special. The staff, cleanliness, location, rooms - are just splendid. The staff are so very attentive. We will be back!

My best friend & I spent the weekend. It is a truly beautiful place, both in and out. We stayed in a garden suite, which was great. We each took turns sleeping in the bedroom. One issue we had was that the mattress in the bedroom was not very comfortable. Actually, the sofa bed in the main living area (which... More

Spend a weekend with my girlfriends. Enjoyed a sunny Spring day after this brutal winter, which made the stay even nicer. We stayed in a Garden Suite with direct accesss to the outdoors. Beautiful crescent beach within a 5 minute walk from hotel. Very lovely landscaping, including a large fire pit and outdoor pool. Our suite was lovely - enjoyed... More

While driving the back roads to get to the inn we questioned what could be so special about this place that people would go off the beaten path to stay there. We soon found out why. Beautifully appointed rooms, great bed, gas burning fireplace, ocean views, VERY quiet (we were next to the elevator and heard no noise in our... More

We got married here in 2010 and stayed at the Inn by the Sea. The weather was horrible (to be expected in October), but the amenities were amazing. We got dual massages and loved the atmosphere in the bar each night. Everyone we met celebrated with us upon hearing we had just gotten married. What a beautiful town and a... More

Our recent trip to Inn By The Sea was our fifth and it was just as wonderful as the previous four. This trip we took advantage of the services offered more than usual because we had a new puppy with us along with our resident dog. Because we did not want to leave him unattended, we used the dog sitter... More

Last Fall, on a whim, I purchased a 1 night getaway to 'Inn by the Sea' from boston.com finds, thinking it would be a therapeutic winter activity and the fact that this spot welcomed dogs, really made this something to look forward to. There is certainly no disappointment here... it was way beyond my expectations and a perfectly delightful stay.... More

It was a wet and wintry weekend but perfect for staying in and relaxing in the lounge with a good book. The rooms were spotless and nicely decorated - not a strand of pet hair in sight. From check in to check out, our pooch was welcome. All dogs at the inn we saw were well behaved. While our dog... More
