4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

This hotel is in a perfect location. Just across the street from the ocean and fishing pier. Market across the street that has anything you would ever need, and restaraunts within walking distance. The rooms are spacious, and clean, and staff are absolutely wonderful. We had checked out and started driving home when we realized we had to go back because we left something very important there. We were really worried it would be "gone" by the time we got back, but Patricia the housekeeper turned it in. I congratulate her, for her honesty, which is something you don't find nowadays. The only complaint I really had about this hotel, is the room did have a very strong musty smell, and quite a bit of animal hair. Other than that, it was perfect, and I would definately stay here again!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Two adults and a large-ish dog fit very comfortably in the modestly proportioned and furnished "queen efficiency cottages." The kitchenette is tiny but adequate for storing and preparing food for simple meals (fruit, cereal, coffee, sandwiches). Could use a few more essential utensils, but not critical, especially if you eat at one of the restaurants on either side of the inn. The bathroom is sized for people under 6' and 190 lbs and had minor plumbing issues but served its purpose well. The bed and pillows were just OK and probably need to be replaced. Parking gets a little crowded by the end of the day but we had no problems. The staff were friendly and helpful (one grumpy exception but I suspect she had her reasons). Even the young man who attended to the bathroom plumbing issue was remarkably cheerful and efficient. The walls are thin and not sound-proofed (fortunately our neighbors were quiet). A/C worked well. The price of the room was very reasonable; good value. The inn gets high marks for pet friendliness: there is a small lawn area for exercise, etc. with a handy plastic bag dispenser. The location for beach-goers is excellent. The state beach is right across the street, about a 5 minute walk to cross the road and parking lot of the Jennette Pier. Dogs are allowed on the beach but must be kept on a 6-foot leash. The Pier is apparently for fishermen primarily, charges an access fee and does not allow dogs. Conveniently located very near to an outlet mall. We would definitely stay here again and recommend the inn to friends.

Room Tip: Get a Queen Efficiency Cottage if you can fit.

The front desk personnel(Natalie) was very kind and extremely helpful. So much more helpful from her competition that we decided to stay. Our suite had everything we needed to make French toast, egg sandwiches, cut our cantelope, and have our morning coffee. We would definately stay here again. Thank you Natalie!

The location is perfect! You have to cross the street & you will be in Jennifer's Pier / beach but this hotel is old, dirty and pet friendly. I woke up in the middle of the night & I thought there was a dog sleeping in my bed. The smell was so bad.

Awesome location and the front desk staff was awesome. The only thing that I would say is for the people staying there please clean up after your dog. (RUDE). Only thing about the room, should put in a vent in the bathroom. The room was clean. A little outdated but other than that I would definitely stay there again.

Awesome service and quality of service was great! The beds were soft, the staff were nice, and the cleaning people never left the room dirty! I would definitely stay here again! I would also recommend this place to anyone who was interested.

Room Tip: The second floor has a good view of the ocean, but doesn't have an elevator.

Stayed here last week and cut my stay short to move to another motel. Room was cute but bed the hardest I have ever stayed in. Bath is so small I could brush my teeth while sitting down! Staff only cleaned room first morning of three night stay. Even though this is just across from the pier, it's not worth the price or issues stated. Keep looking.
