I booked this hotel to stay with my three girls. I was on my own and when I checked in, we were given the room in the far back, basically next to the cleaning closet.

This hotel is directly across the street from the beach, and is close/in walking distance to all the shopping and restaurants you would ever want. My husband and I stayed in room 24 on the 3rd floor, and this was a beautiful ocean view room. The staff at The Heritage are very friendly! The only downfall was that the bed... More

The hotel is located right across from the beach, you could not be closer! It's also very close to everything in town! The staff were very warm and friendly. They are dedicated to maintaining the building, we saw a painter working on fixing up some of the railings.

Thank you for your recent review. I can appreciate your comment about the bathroom's overly large size as it is a very large bathroom. The reason for this is that it is our handicapp bathroom which was required by law to be that size with no obstacles such as cabinets etc so that a person in a wheel chair can... More

The Heritage Inn is our 1st choice. We feel like family each time we visit (and that's usually 2-3 times per season)! Clean, convenient and we walk to great restaurants, clean pristine beaches and all the fabulous shopping. All the while enjoying the Victorian architecture along the way. We are 60 and 61 years young and don't mind the steps... More

I appreciate your going over our property with a fine tooth comb and have addressed all your issues. Again thank you. I just wish you had mentioned the painting crew that was here working during your stay and that you could see the finished product. I do hope you come visit again, ask for me, and I am positive you... More

Each room has all the necessary comforts-refrigerator included-to enjoy your stay. Gwen will greet you at the front... More

Gwen was very helpful juggling rooms to accommodate us. Very friendly and you can't beat the location! Our car is smaller so they let us have a parking spot out front the whole time. We had a really nice visit!
