This inn is actually very motel-ish. You can see the pictures for yourself. The place isn't even that close to the beach, and you're still charged $180 a night. One of our lights didn't work, the carpet was worn down, and the water from the shower/tub has a strange green tint to it. In addition, the wall mounted AC units pump in cold humid air from the outside. You will leave the room feeling soggier than if you were outside. From a value standpoint, this is the worst I've ever had.
To make things worse, the front desk called our room at 9:45pm to tell us that someone left a bag for us and that we could pick it up the next morning when we check out. Why call if that's the case? This typically wouldn't be a big issue for us, but we have an 8 month old that's impossible to put to bed, and their stupid phone call woke her up. If you're a parent, you know how infuriating this would be. Absolutely thoughtless. Did they not remember or check to see that we had an infant in the room?
At least the bed worked and the sheets were clean. If it weren't for that, this place would have scored a 1 out of 5.
