My family and I visit this hotel at least once a year and are always pleased. The staff is very friendly. This time our warmest greeting was given upon exiting the lobby by a maintenance employee, someone who might ignore you elsewhere. The garden along the oceanside rooms make the setting even more picturesque. The rooms, while not grandeur or spacious, are very cozy: gas fireplace, ceiling fan, flat screen TV, comfortable bedding, etc. It looks like they have addressed a previous concern of mine and now offer more than one type of pillow. Also, the continental breakfast is presented nicely in a nook setting, which includes bakery items from a local bakery and diy waffles. Plus, you can eat inside or outside on the patio. Many people take their breakfasts back to their rooms. Overall, I cannot compliment the Cottage Inn enough. Every stay is a memorable one.
