Blood on our window, drapery and wall! Murder/Suicide room??? Did not feel safe with my young daughter— strange employees lurking about, vinyl futon, hot- no air conditioner-----Prepaid day of before checking it out---not wise during peak season as nothing else in town was available. $282.13 total-- we couldn't stay in the REDRUM room. Lost $282.13---

I stayed over Memorial Weekend for four nights, in my own Casita with 2 bedrooms. and a kitchen. While it is not updated, it was very comfortable and clean. Besides I was only there really to sleep and shower.

Toilet plugged, shower plugged, shower would not work properly, holes in wall where some kind of painting(?) had previously existed, and dust layer was on top of bed headboard, and a joke of a breakfast. And management did seem to care. it is obvious that no money is spent on maintaining the property. Not worth the $ we paid for it.

We went for my birthday in july. I have stayed here before and was pleased but this little cottage was a wreck. They had pulled the stove out and not cleaned the floor where it was. the fan in the bedroom didnt work. the outlet where i charged my phone started to come out of the wall when i tried to unplug it. the garbage disposal backed up and we had sand in the bathroom sink. tv remote didnt work. looks like they were doing some patching of the drywall but then never painted after. just over all run down and not worth the money. i went and talked to the management the next day and they did nothing. i left my phone number and got no call. i waited a few weeks before leaving the review in case they at least tried to make it right but they never contacted me so here it is.

Since the hotels that I know were already booked for the Sea Glass Festival and Mermaid Ball, I took a chance on the Dolphin Inn. It is an old facility, with very poor insulation. The first night I heard loud conversation from the men next door, then snoring through the wall, so I had to sleep with the television on. The room was clean, although water pressure was a bit low in the shower, and the water wasn't as hot as I would have liked.
