We gave this inn a chance based on recent positive reviews on this site and yahoo. All in all, we were very disappointed. We told the owner we were coming with an infant, and she said the room would definitely accomodate a family. We arrived very late after a long drive, so did not immediately realize our room was ridiculously tiny. We could not walk past the bed/pack in play without moving furniture. When we complained the next morning, the owner said she could move us to a suite but at a much higher price. We felt we had no choice since we could not walk around each other. The room was bigger in terms of space, but had no tv, phone, clock, toiletries, or refrigerator - hardly what we'd call a suite. Last, the walls had cracks around the windows and decor was second rate.
The positives were the owner was very nice and gladly gave us directions to local sites/dining, location is walking distance to the beach, AC worked well, and breakfast was plentiful.
We would definitely not return.
