“Needs cleaning and updating”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

We stayed there last year with no problem although rooms are tiny and rates are high. This year our air conditioning died along with the toilet, and there were ants in our room. The bathroom had broken and missing tiles and the shower was very small with bad lighting. We left a day early, and when we got our bill, they had added a $50 bar bill. When questioned, they "realized" they read the room number on the bar receipt incorrectly.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. I do apologize about your stay, it must have been very inconvenient to have A/C unit and toilet issues. I hope that during your stay you were able to alert the front desk of these problems so that we could provide assistance in resolving them. I will address all of your comments with the team, we strive to make our guests stay enjoyable, and I am upset to see that your satisfaction was not met. Your feedback is very important to us as we will be remodeling both the guest rooms as well as the corridors over the next few seasons. I invite you to visit our Pleasant View Inn facebook page where we will be posting all of the improvements. I hope that you will consider us for future stays and again, I really do thank you for taking the time to share your experience.

Pleasant View Inn is an older property in an awesome location. When we visited we had, between us, a walking disability and a broken ankle on crutches. We had called to ask about accessibility and the person on the phone recommended a first floor room -- which by the way was more expensive. When we arrived, we found limited handicapped parking: the main entrance (check-in and restaurant) is in the first building and has only 1 space (and stairs). There are 2 additional spaces at the furthest end of the 3rd building (and more stairs) where our room was located. Most of the handicapped spaces are across the street. We had to navigate 1 1/2 flights of stairs up from the parking lot, to our room, 1/2 a flight down to the main hall to get to the restaurant, which was quite a hike over 3 buildings. On the other hand, our balcony looked right out over the beach and ocean. Our room was plain but comfortable, nice TV, no phone, no room service, and the bathroom could use a makeover. The restaurant menu was more inspired than the chef but the bar offered a nice selection of wine. The staff were all extremely caring and pleasant. And if your looking for beach, they have it just steps away!

I understand your concerns about handicap accessibility. I can assure you that this has been addressed, we have been evaluating all areas of the property for redecoration. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your room and the location! I invite you to keep a look out at our Facebook page as we will be updating everyone with all of the remodeling and improvements happening over the next few seasons.

Great to be right on the beach. Having a restaurant right in the hotel is a bonus. My husband and I were able to sit in the Lounge and have a drink while our kids out on the patio. This is our 4th time at the Pleasant View, would defiantly recommend .
The only negatives were; the pull out couch was all wired together someone tried to fix it, not well and the bathroom look like it may have had some water damage that was repaired.
Even with the negatives I would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Poolside mini suite was perfect for a family of 4

Great getaway weekend. Made reservations at the last minute and still got a great room. Pool view with small balcony. Staff was more than helpful. Location is perfect. I know I will be going back again and again. I did hear it was recently acquired by a large hotel group, just hope it doesn't change the charm and warmth it now has. Food in pub and dining room was very good and extremely reasonable. We had lunch and dinner, choose to have breakfast just down the road. Also added perk, a very nice gift shop attached to hotel. For me having the beach and a heated pool....just doesn't get much better.

Room Tip: The pool view is very nice, ocean view is beautiful but may at times be just too breezy.

I would have given PVI a 5 star rating if the smoking had not been an issue. Large Ashtrays filled with cigarette butts beside the Lounge Chair area and the outside dining area clearly imply that the staff does NOT discourage smoking in these public areas. Thus a non smoker is forced to go to the beach or eat inside. Although the rooms are dated, they are quite clean. The food is great and the staff pleasant. However, an upscale hotel does not allow smoking in public areas,even if they are outside. I would like to bring my cousins and children to this hotel, but cannot because of all the second hand smoke. The view is to die for, but unfortunately cannot be enjoyed by a non smoker from the lounge chairs or the outside dining area.

Room Tip: Do not pick an oceanfront room unless you get an upper level room as the smoke drifts upwards from t...

We loved the the Pleasant View Inn so much on our visit last month,as well as their restaurant, we just booked again.

Our room was a "Superior-Ocean View", 2nd floor. Large, clean and directly on the beach with a perfect view of the ocean. Having a separate balcony to just sit and relax was awesome.

Everyone from the front desk to the parking attendant to housekeeping were very nice and helpful. We got their early and were able to park our car in the lot and hang out at the beach until check-in time.

The restaurant on site, "The Kitchen at the PVI" was exceptional. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner at the restaurant and every meal was delicious and most of all - fresh! Great staff again!

Looking forward to our next trip this weekend and can't recommend enough!

I got home today after my 2nd trip to the Pleasant View Inn and I'm already looking forward to next year. I was worried they wouldn't be up and running like other businesses in the area, and they have done a great job. If your looking for luxury rooms, PVI may not be for you, BUT....the rooms are very clean, beds are comfy, air conditioned rooms (not in halls but who hangs out in the hallways) and you can't beat the views!! We had ocean front on the second floor and the sound of the waves will lull you to sleep. Yes, bring your own shampoo (I prefer my own anyway) there are no phones, and cell service is sketchy. The staff, housekeeping, front desk VERY "pleasant" And special shout out to Chris out in the parking lot who took care of our bags, and Stephen who served us breakfast with a smile. The beach is raked each day, it's quiet, and we met some GREAT people...I've stayed in 5 star hotels, but you can't buy kindness. Thanks PVI, we will be back next August!

Room Tip: I would definitely upgrade to ocean front 2nd or 3rd floor. the sun and moon shining on that water i...
