When we saw the Beach House Inn at the last minute, we were impressed by the website and photos, so booked a room for two nights. Upon arrival, the location was as expected, directly across the road from a rocky beach area, with great views from the front porch of the hotel. We checked in with the the front desk,... More

My husband and I bought a one night stay at the Beach house Inn through the Hotel Tonight app for our anniversary. The room was in unacceptable condition (Room 102). We asked to be moved to another room (Room 103) and what we got was documented below. It was poorly lit, there were multiple hair balls on the bathroom rug,... More

Really enjoyed our 3 night stay at The Beach House. It by far surpassed our expectations. Staying on Beach Ave puts you in walking distance to the beaches and a short bike ride or drive to Dock Square. Running on the water every morning was a perfect way to start the day. We really enjoyed sitting on the front porch... More

Upon our arrival we were met with very friendly and helpful staff who showed us all the hotel amenities. Our room was extremely comfortable and clean. The ocean view from the front porch is amazing. We cannot say enough about the staff they were awesome. We are looking forward to many return trips to the Inn.

I'm not sure if we truly got the real Beach House experience because we only stayed for one night, but what we got was just okay. Upon our arrival, I was behind a couple who was on their honeymoon during check in. I was excited to tell them that we had just gotten engaged 2 days before because our last... More

We celebrated our 23rd anniversary this weekend at the Beach House Inn. What a fantastic time we had!! The room was quaint and comfy, the breakfast and other daily food treats were tasty and the beaches and restaurants were close and convenient. We were greeted by a very friendly front desk attendant upon arriving, shown to our rooms and helped... More

My husband and I chose the Beach House as a special get away for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and it couldn't have been any better! The room was comfortable, the property was beautiful and well maintained with gardens and sculptures. The view from the front porch was fabulous! The staff was friendly and helpful. Loved the little extra's they provided... More

My husband and I just stayed here for a long weekend as our "baby-moon", the weather wasn't great but The Beach House made it much better. The room was very cute and looked just as it does online. The overall Inn was well maintained, the staff was great and the "extras" were awesome. Cookies, coffee, tea, wine, cheese, crackers, really... More

This is a charming place, you really feel like you're on vacations. Location is great, facing the ocean. The afternoon port with cheese as well as the breakfast are a delicious. Room was not as great as the house, but it was great anyway. Will certainly go back.

This was a charming place, but hardly a B&B...the front looks like a house , but there are multiple additions on the rear that add hotel like rooms. The beach across a very busy road (in the summer) is all rocks and seaweed. You can walk to two alternative beachs(one of which dissappears at high tide. The accommodations were clean... More
