I stayed here three nights in summer and had an end room on the second floor. The room was basic but comfortable. The bathroom was adequate but could use some updating. The balcony was great since the tide goes in and out right below you- the motel serves as the bridge! Warning: I leaned on the balcony to watch the moonlight at 3 am and almost went over into the water. It was not secured!
They rent cars for a day or a few hours. A great way to explore the island. The motel is close to several restaurants and shops and I spent several happy hours in the paperback book exchange. No cell service but there is a pay phone in the parking lot next door. If you are looking for peace and quiet and great views, this is the place. Take binoculars for nature watching. And get up early to watch the lobster boats. The restaurant down the road behind some shops has a great breakfast. A plus: don't bring your car and ask the desk to have someone meet you at the ferry. It's a long walk uphill and I'm mobility challenged. They were great about picking me up and taking me back to the ferry.
