Lovely, comfortable stay with great food and service. The location and views at the hotel are gorgeous. The rooms are very large and well appointed. The hotel also provides each room with free snacks which was a welcome surprise. The spa was excellent. The hotel could use an interior design refresh since the decor is a bit outdated and not as upscale as the property.

Fantastic stay at the Inn in July. Had Garden suite which was great. walk right out to the lawn and pool. 2 adults and our 17 month old. Suite was perfect. Super clean and well appointed. Just absolutely relaxing stay. Great, friendly staff. Beach and heated pool were great. Very Kid friendly and great food. Small resort feel with all the amenities of a larger resort.

The location is wonderful. The room was awesome. Service in restaurant is terrible. Spa was nice. I will not go back as I think they are too expensive. I will look for a better priced place to go. If you do not mind spending $800+ per night, this is the place for you.

This is such a charming Inn with a nod to old fashion family fun. Even though I was by myself, I appreciated the social activities the Inn offered - a clambake, nightly s’mores for the kids, cocktail party for the adults..Love the beach being right there. It’s a very pretty boardwalk path less than a 1/4 ml. from the Inn. And they have a station set up providing beach chairs, towels, buckets & shovels. I ordered room service a few times and it was very prompt & delicious! Staying at the Inn was/is a lovely alternative to renting a home, especially when traveling solo. All the staff are super friendly & helpful. I highly recommend the Inn By The Sea.

This Inn is just perfect. Visited with my kids and not only was there easy ocean access, but a great pool and s’mores in the evening! We had a great time in this amazingly relaxed environment. We can’t wait to come back!
