We had the pleasure of staying at Sea Spray Inn February 2015. We were treated like family (well, probably better actually). We made our reservation and any contact we had with Mary. Mary is lovely, just lovely. She made sure we had everything. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary which information came up during the time we were booking. Imagine our surprise when we walked into the room and found a bouquet of roses, candy and champagne. The rooms were clean, light and airy, and comfortable. This Inn was built a while ago, so modern isn't a word I would use to describe it. But, I loved the homely feeling. The beach is so close. Eating and shopping is about a block away as is a Walgreens, (which if you forgot your curling iron is a nice perk).
We would highly recommend this inn. We will be booking with them in the future.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay during two weeks. The Inn has so much exterior charm that some pedestrians stopped and took notes and photos. As other reviewers noted, the location is ideal. We especially enjoyed our private balcony where we ate breakfast, read, people watched, looked at the ocean while overlooking the Inn's beautiful tropical garden atmosphere. Mary, the manager is so attentive, loving and caring. She even helped us open a "stubburn" bottle of wine. There are very good restaurants within walking distance. Our favorites were Basilic Vietnamese and Sea Watch. The latter serves excellent sea food and has ocean views.

Room Tip: Our room, Apt#4 had a decent ocean view

We stayed for 10 days at the Sea spray Inn last December - January 2015. The location is perfect, walking distance from all accommodations. The apartment is full equipped and very clean. Walking distance from the beach, Priceless!!! Mary the manager is exceptional always there to help you! And she is a very attentive with all the guests we very appreciated all she did for us during our stay. We forget something at the apartment and she send it back to us at home, No charge! Thank you! We would recommended the Sea Spray Inn to anyone.

I stayed at the Sea Spray Inn for 7 nights and I had a great visit! The locaion is perfect-only a few steps from the beach. It is also a very short walk to the Pier, many restaurants, and small shops. There is a Walgreens, 7-eleven, car rental, and laundry facility also just a very short walk from the Inn . I stayed in room 3, which has a decent view of the ocean with a private balcony large enough for us to store out complimentary beach chairs and umbrella for the week. The apartment was very clean and equipped with all necessary items to get us through our stay. It had a kitchen with towels, oven, microwave, coffee maker and dishes. In the living space, the furniture wasn't very comfortable but we used the pull out bed in the sofa to lounge and watch TV. Though the location and facility are great, Mary is the best! She is super nice, very accomodating, and always willing to help with anything and everything. She truly goes above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. I greatly enjoyed my stay at the Inn and would recommend it to anyone!

Location is across the street from public access to the beach and a quick walk to restaurants and shops. The property manager was very helpful. Beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels were all supplied. Kitchen has all the essentials. Really enjoyed our stay.

I stayed for a week and everything was perfect. I especially appreciated the warm and devoted service from Mary. In addition to the fact that we are very close to the beach and the appartment well maintained, Mary's everyday smile and attention make this place my choice for the next vacation and a place I greatly recommend!
