Great Hotel, This hotel is right on the beach, we stayed on second floor ocean front! Great View. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast was ok, needs fruit and a maybe English muffins. They do have a guy that rents two chairs and umbrella for $25 a day, so don't buy them! The only real down side was the... More

The view from our second floor balcony was great, wesaw a wedding on the beach. Since the Inn has been around a while they could use some renovations, local food was very good, we ate at Beaches Burgers

Extremely overpriced for a room on the wrong side of the motel. The room was very clean but dated and the pool was very small. We were on the top floor and our stay was very quiet but that was all the room had going for it. Maybe we didn't have neighbors. Neither my wife nor I could get over... More

The rooms were nice and close together so the trip was a success. Pools were clean and parking was easy. Breakfast could be improved. Also adding a snack bar would be nice. Good service. Will go again!

I stayed here for the first time & had a great experience! It's a good spot & for what I paid, I can't complain. The staff was really friendly. The breakfast could have been a little better. I would have preferred eggs & bacon over the sandwich choice, but again...for the rate, it's fine. Overall, I would definitely stay here... More

I really enjoyed this place!!! The location was superb. The room was clean, nice and quiet. The free breakfast each morning was very convenient. Being on the beach was a plus. I highly recommend this place.

The location is fantastic, but for the money the facilities were not up to par. Sheets were dirty, stains on the ceiling and walls of room, outdated facilities, key cards deactivated like 10 times even when not putting them anywhere near a cell phone. Staff was very friendly and you really can't beat the location. Bed was super uncomfortable and... More
