Right off the bat, was not happy that hotel policy is non refundable deposit (50% of room rate), period. Better make sure it's what you want. I can understand no refund of deposit within a reasonable time period before the booked date. The accommodations listed on their website are misleading. "The Living Room is a comfortable and stylish place to... More

As always, a warm welcome, clean room, quiet atmosphere, meeting other guests led to a great vacation. Walt and Angie took good care of us and we were happy to see resident cat Lindsey and the owners before we departed. My husband and I have been staying at Canalside for almost 8 years. We consider it our home away from... More

Nice location and spacious rooms. The Ikea furniture looks good but is not very comfortable. Overall the place was clean. Staff were helpful. The pool is small but a nice amenity. Breakfast was just sad.

Nothing beats an awesome location and spacious rooms when it comes to your home away from home.

There are many good points about this inn. It's on a quiet canal street (wear insect repellent at all times) that is a reasonable walk,bike to the town and beach. Too far to lug stuff so take advantage of the discount parking pass available at the front desk. Rooms are quirky, ours had a nice bar area with refrigerator and... More

While it's exciting to know that you had a nice experience for the most part, we apologize about the blind situation. The team and I care deeply about each one of our guests' privacy and ability to be comfortable throughout their stay, so we're bummed that we fell short in that aspect.

Loved this hotel! Brought the dog who felt very much at home. The room was really nice with pretty decorating touches you wouldn't expect at a 'beach hotel'. There was a pool in the back which was small but perfect to cool off in. The location is a nice walk from main street and is quiet. The owner who checked... More

We stayed for 3 nights July 4th weekend. The venue is quiet and peaceful, right across from the canal. There is a trail there that is good for dog walking. The room was clean and nicely decorated. Maid service did a good job and she was quite friendly. The owners aren't all that warm, but they are polite. No greeting... More

Upon check-in we were told that due to a booking issue, the first night would be in a different room and we would need to move after that for the remainder of the stay. They DID compensate up for the inconvenience. I will say this was warranted as the bed in the first room (Room #4) was a Murphy bed... More
