There are several outside seating areas, which were very nice in the good weather we had and good for small children. Each of our 4 rooms was uniquely configured and decorated, our rooms were comfortable, and the kitchens were nicely stocked. There...

The location is very convenient and is walking distance to the wharf, boardwalk and downtown. The owners had let me know that all of their rooms have been remodeled so I was...

Well, the room they rented me looked pretty good, and it came with a jacuzzi tub. When I mentioned how much I appreciated the tub,...

Location is great, but rooms are old and it feels very motelish. Don't come here unless you're good with small outdated motels. I was very disappointed.

“larger rooms with kitchenettes, would have liked to have the extra room for the two of us. We stayed in a single with a king bed.”
  • This was a small single room with a King bed. Nice decor! Clean!
  • Kind of hard to take a shower in this tub. Fun to have the fireplace in the bathroom.
