The good: The lobby and room were clean. Check in and out were fast and easy. A/C was cold. OJ was very tasty. The manager helped secure beach chair and umbrella rental. The less than good: No shampoo. No blow dryer. Bed was hard. Breakfast was toast and cereal. Coffee was bad. Contrary to its name, it is a block... More

I stayed at the Beachside Inn on September 6-7 and the location is ideal, only one block from the beach. The negatives, the beds aren't too comfy and the hallways have a funny odor. Rooms are clean and they serve complementary continental breakfast in the lobby. I would stay again but a little TLC would go a long way for... More

This hotel is not a 5 star hotel. However, if you are not wanting to pay a lot for a room this is the place. The staff was extra friendly and the room was clean. It also had a sink in there which was kinda cool. But the beds were comfortable and the room got very cold which is a... More

It is not a five star hotel BUT for the money it is a great place to stay and the staff was very friendly (upgraded my room to a suite at no cost). It is placed well in the center of activity. It was clean and everything worked with no problems. I brought great food and drinks with the money... More

We loved this hotel! The service was great and the room was comfortable and it is a block away from the beach. The pool is awesome and the jacuzzi is wonderful. We absolutely love it and we will be going back!!!!!!!

It's not a 5 star hotel but it is decent. The front desk was helpful, and very friendly, the cleaning crew did use to much cleaner, but I didn't mind the smell, I just opened the window and it was fine..It is walking distance to the beach which was good..some things are a bit outdated but it was clean enough....

If you are a person that appreciates cleanliness, this is NOT the hotel for you. My mother and I mistakenly booked this hotel thinking that it was another. Unfortunately we were unable to get out of our reservation and had to stay the whole time (five days, four nights). I also had my two children with me, and felt horrible... More

Stayed here on SPI. This is a decent place. It's not the Hilton but you can't beat the prices or the location. It is pretty much in the center and everything is walking distance (in my opinion). The breakfast sucked but I didn't stay for the breakfast. It was easy to get to the beach when we wanted and didn't... More

Yes it is plain, but I paid only $40.02 including tax for my stay. Also they now have shampoo and lotion on request; a previous reviewer stated that it was not available. The ac/heat is digital, which is nice; some older hotels are still using the dial-type which i can never get to the right temp. Overall as good as... More
