The friendly staff made for easy checkin and checkout. The rooms felt just like staying at someone's home. Charming and bright. The location is nearly ideal for walking the beach which is exactly what we did. The recommendations for dinner and things to see in the area were well received and enjoyed. A trifle expensive but well worth the extra... More

Nice place especially for people that need to bring dogs. Right on the beach. Staff are very friendly. Bathrooms recently remodeled. They have beach chairs for guests. Make sure to take pictures of the sunsets.

I will write my review honestly, both good and bad, and let travelers decide if this is the right place for their needs. I am a native Floridian, have stayed just about everywhere there is to stay on the beaches, and have to say, this is the best if you want privacy, relaxation, and great views. There are NO elevators... More

It's a cute place right on the beach. I get it. It has been tarted up and it looks nice in the pictures but really it's an average place at a high price point. The location is good if you want to look out onto the public beach lined with cars. It is right beside the access point which is... More

We had a wonderful and relaxing stay. And upon going entering the room we found a present and anniversary card since this was our anniversary stay. This was one of the cleanest rooms we have ever stayed in. The room is mainly a big area with a small kitchen. We had a king bed and it was very comfy. Everyone... More

Breakfast was good. Room was extremely clean. The employees were amazing and friendly. I would definitely return. All in all a very pleasant stay. Complete with puppy treats in the lobby! If I had known they were pet friendly I would have brought my pup. We will be back!

We appreciate your comments and are glad to hear you would stay with us again. Chrome and glass don't work well on the beach, but we do try to mix in new, modern touches in our traditional beach house style. We have elevator on our wish list, but the upper floors do offer views that give good incentive for the... More

This is a quirky (in a good way) place, kind of a cross between a small hotel (which it is) and a B&B. Only 16 guest rooms. We were fortunate that it was between seasons - quiet sands and wonderful weather. We had a HUGE 3rd floor room with balcony overlooking the beach and ocean. Musta been 500 sq. feet!.... More

This hotel is great with awesome views of the ocean. If you want to be right on the beach and see the sun rise over the ocean, this is the place to stay. Some places advertise they are on the beach, but there is a road that separates you from the beach. This is not the case with this hotel.... More
