Just stayed at the Castle Manor a few nights ago.....we were in one of the rooms that flank the main hotel, I guess you could say they are like the old motels where you drive up to the room and the door opens up to the parking space. The shower had a nice slow leak that dripped all night. The... More

First off, the people, servers are all really nice and accommodating. But, the room we got at the very last minute was not the best. There was a rumble from the kitchen vent under us that doesn't stop until the kitchen closes at about 9pm. So if you want to get in early, it's not such a good idea. There... More

our room was in the main inn - i think that's important to know when you call for a reservation. The main inn is in the old Victorian house itself. there are additional motel motel style rooms adjacent to the building. The evening and morning hosts were welcoming. Nice continental breakfast. Lovely wrap-around porch which would be perfect to sit... More

Let start off with the good part of the stay. the room was very quiet and clean. Unfortunately, that's where it ends. The website shows that you'll be staying in the main grey castle Inn, but when we got there I was told that I could upgrade to those rooms, but at a much larger rate. We decided not to.... More

We recently hosted our daughter's wedding at this charming Victorian inn by the sea. The well-kept grounds and wrap around porch first welcome you into a setting where the rooms were comfortable and the staff and innkeepers were extremely obliging and attentive. It was a joy to see our guests enjoy perfect summer weather in an open air tent-like setting... More

We had a room in the west motel section; if you plan a stay here we hope you will book a room in the Inn. Some of the things that bothered us about our room were the wi-fi did not work in our room (we had to go to the Inn to get a connection), there was no stopper in... More

Overall a very good experience. The building is beautiful, nicely decorated and comfortable. Breakfast left a lot to be desired. There were not a lot of selections. The fruit was mostly not ripe (crunchy cantaloupe). There are no employees on site overnight but there is a phone number posted in case there are any problems. We were there only when... More

Beautiful old home with many wonderful views. If you are looking for a old seaside home converted to a bed and breakfast look elsewhere. The rooms on the first floor are for the eye to see. Great old world restaurant with a outside patio/deck overlooking the bay, Upstairs unfortunately is a disgrace to those who want the charm and atmosphere.... More

The inn was beautiful and the grounds even better. The room was quaint and the beds were so comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was free, and the muffins were the best I ever had! I just wish we could have stayed longer! The hot water took a little while to get to the room because we... More

My daughter's bridal shower was held on the covered deck and it was all we could have wanted. Laura was very easy to work with and the rest of the staff were friendly, efficient and a pleasure to be around. The food (roll ups and salad) far exceeded my expectations...really, how good can a sandwich be? They were phenomenal! The... More
