First and foremost I am a review reader for sure and I spend a great deal of time reading multiple review sites and weighing out all kinds of info on a place so when I stay at a place I am usually confident in my choice. I didn't get to book a room as early this year as I normally... More

I read all the reviews here before staying at the Yellow Giraffe. I was hesitant to make our reservations due to all the comments about the size of the rooms, especially the bathrooms. There were 4 of us ladies, 3 of whom are on the "fluffy" side & my 7 yr old granddaughter. Yes, it was tight but we spent... More

Coming to OOB is a tradition every summer and this year we tried going to a different hotel. To start off, the lady was very rude because we are "the young generation" known for partying and drinking so we already had imagine without even coming here.. Second the rooms are relativity small including the bathroom which the door shuts right... More

This is a clean and friendly place. Not on the beach but just a short walk to everything. Rooms are a little outdated but very clean and air conditioned. Pool is nice also. They have bbqs to cook and refrigerators in the rooms. I have been staying here for the last 10-11 years. The only problem u have to book... More

Great service at the front desk! Our room was homey, very small. You had to close the door to get into the room as the bed is right at the door. The bathroom was tiny and we are a very small couple. You had to lean to the right to sit on the toilet as the sink is infront of... More

Before our stay started, we had our room changed several times, and eventually ended up in a two bedroom suite. The woman at the desk was nice, and the pool was inviting, but definitely not quiet. Our room (Room 5) was very clean but the bathroom is extremely small. You couldn't get out of the shower without bumping into the... More

My son and I stayed at the Yellow Giraffe just for one night on August 14-15,2012. The place itself was nice and the location was great because you could walk to the beach. We payed around $112.00 for a dounle room with kitchenette. It definitely had a homey feel to it. The only gripe I had about it wa the... More

I booked this place 3 days before the weekend we stayed. Shawna in the front desk was very helpful in leading me to the room that would fit our needs best. The price is incredibly reasonable. Cleanliness is what they "pride themselves on" and they truly live up to that statement. This is no 5 star hotel, it's a perfect... More

We just spent the weekend at the Yellow Giraffe and had a great time, the owners and the staff are very friendly and always available to help you. The owners are out wiping down the tables, chairs, cleaning around the pool area, watering the plants and setting up a breakfast area for their guests to enjoy all before 7:00 am... More

We almost always travel on a budget so were used to staying in 2 star hotelS but this one was pretty crummy. We booked the cheapest room they had... $80 a night. I was so happy to find such a cheap rate in July in such a tourist town. The woman repeatedly stressed on the phone that the room we... More
