John and his staff have put together a great take out for most nights of the week. The prime rib Saturdays are wonderful. They deliver and the food comes warm. Thank you again for bringing us a great experience

For the entire 4 days of my stay neither of the young receptionist smiled or said hello to me in the morning when I entered the reception area for coffee. I understand that it is an old building. When I mentioned that the doorknob to my room was loose and I was having trouble entering my room, the receptionist said she would get maintenance to look at it. Nothing was done. When I returned at the end of the day the doorknob fell off in my hand. I stayed on the third floor to save money. The bathroom, shower room and lavatory are down the hall. There is a sink in my room and every now it then it makes a loud giggling noise. My room is extremely tiny, with one very tiny window. The ceiling of my room slopes so I cannot see the small television from my bed because of its placement on the wall. A notice is placed at the second floor landing stating “Quiet Hours from 10pm to 8am. That never happened. Vacationers oblivious to the level of their conversations while walking down the hall late at night and the slamming their room doors as the entered and exited their room was annoying to say the least. Conversations from the room to either side of me could be heard through the walls of the room. Beach towels and beach chairs are offered first come, first served. Beach tags are offered. Nicely located across the street from the beach. it would have been lovely if they had a porch to sit out on but they enclosed it and made it a resturant. They do have a side grassy area with umbrella and chairs to sit on but it does not have a view and the sound of the air conditioner units makes it unpleasant. I feel I paid too much. I will use the price of my stay here as a benchmark and shop around for a more comfortable hotel that is welcoming to its quests and offers outdoor seating,

Hi Joan-- we're sorry to hear you didn't love your stay with us. There are a couple things we would like to address in your review. First of all, we sincerely apologize that you didn't find our staff welcoming or friendly-- we pride ourselves on having a warm, hospitable staff and to hear we fell short on that front is very upsetting for us. We will certainly be following up with our staff members about that. Second, the doorknob issue. You are correct, the Grand Victorian is housed within a historic building, constructed in 1883. As such, many of our doors are antique, which can be charming at best and troublesome at their worst. The staff member you contacted about the doorknob tried to fix the knob, and when she could not, maintenance staff came in and fixed it the same night you reported the issue. We do not wish future readers of your review to be under the impression that nothing was done about it, or that it was not addressed promptly. We heard your issue loud and clear and worked as best we could to address the issue in a timely manner. Your other points are also heard and will be shared with management, both hotel and restaurant, especially in regard to noise, and front porch usage. Unfortunately, we cannot do much about the size of our third floor rooms at this current moment, but we do have plans to renovate that floor so that the rooms are expanded, as you are not the first reviewer to mention feeling cramped. We apologize that you did not have the best stay you could have, and will definitely keep yours and the opinions of our other guests in mind moving forward as we progress with the third floor specifically. Thank you for taking the time to write to us, and we wish you the best of luck in your future travels.

old historic house. Clean and well kept. The room had a comfortable bed , comfortable shower but looked bare. air-conditioned well.There is no Lobby however, there is available free coffee and tea all the time. Location is great - across the street from the beach. The restaurant downstairs is busy . we ate there once - food was good. Hotel is pricey in the summer.

We could not have been happier with our stay! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful! Taylor was very helpful with Uber suggestions! The office is always stocked with coffee, ice and snacks! We stayed in room 16 this year and it was great! Housekeeping was very prompt and friendly. The room was spotless! Beach badges were provided at no extra cost! Parking is fine and we had no problem getting a spot. The renovations look great! Hope to be back in the fall!
