This hotel had everything we needed. Full kitchens. View was awesome! Great staff, any problems they take care of it. Even dinner reservations if you need them! I already booked a return trip for June this year. We stayed in a beach front one bedroom! There rates beat any one room hotel rooms.

I stayed here last winter when up north on business. We got in late and left early, but the rooms were really fantastic. We stayed in a two bedroom that had a kitchenette. It was nice and quiet and the view was fantastic. I would look forward to staying here in the summer when the beach was open and swimming... More

We realize it's September but the pool, while open, was pretty yucky. And the windows/walls were very thin, making noise outside a bit much while trying to sleep. On a positive note, location is great, staff was very pleasant, and there was a ton of space for two couples. Also everything was very clean!

Fantastic location. It's shallow for a long way, making it great for little ones. We always stay in a 2+1 and the accommodations are always nice. Decor is nice. Beds aren't the greatest and we're always a little stiff in the morning, but that's really the only downfall for this place. Staff is nice and helpful. If you like the... More

I just spent 2 nights in room 103 at the North Shore Inn with my friend. We were in town for some wine tasting and had a great time. The North Shore Inn was a great place to stay. Price was comparable to a hotel but with the added benefit of separate bedrooms, living space and a kitchen. The location... More

We called as a last minute get away after Labor Day condo #202---very nice price and very nice customer service on the phone and while we were there---very friendly! Condo smelled great, as soon as we opened the door---very pleased with cleanliness and view. With the view, we knew right away that it was just the relaxation we needed. Everyone... More

We have stayed here 2 other times with excellent experiences. This time was disappointing especially considering the average night stay rounds out to $260. Scratched up cookware, dirty utensils & can opener. Uncomfortable bed, noisy neighbors and a toe ring turns up missing (no real monetary value but sentimental) not due to theft but lack of care, my ankle bracelet... More

Thank You for your review on trip advisor. As far as the cookware goes I do apologize, these are individually owned units, but we did replace them for you during your stay. I am sorry to hear about the guests that were a bit noisy for you, but with a quick call to the front desk, we would of taken... More

We found the North Shore Inn on the VRBO site, but it is also listed as a hotel elsewhere. We made our reservations by calling the Inn directly. We rented a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo for 4 nights for about the same price as a regular hotel room in the area. (There are also 1 bedroom 1 bath, 2... More
