I read several terrible reviews so I was reluctant to book here, but it was all that was available. The room was small, clean and had the bare minimum amenities. No place to put your luggage, no place to hang wet towels or clothes. Bring your own soap, and shampoo as what us provided is not good. There is no... More

Worth every penny. Walkable to town and the midway, which was perfect for my 7 year old. Great location, with the beach right across the street. My room was very clean and neat. I have stayed at other places at the beach in the past and this was by far, the cleanest and best place here.

This room was overpriced. We were upgraded to a better room with a cook top. The owner told us that previous guests complained when he upgraded them that there were no pots, pans, dishes or cutlery. Why upgrade someone to a room with a cook top then. Most of us don't travel with fry pans, etc. Wonder what the other... More

We stayed here with another couple for 2 nights. We had to PREPAY upon reservation and by the time the rate was converted to Canadian dollars, the rate was $200 PER NIGHT. For this rate, we expect service and accommodations equal to the Marriott. We waited for an hour and a half for Carl to arrive to discuss the rooms,... More

The Inn is home to several permanent residents & that was fortunate for us because our phones didn't work but their's did (out of country) & Carl doesn't work 9 to 5 so he wasn't in when we arrived & he doesn't have staff. We waited in the parking lot for 1 1/2 hrs for him & our room keys.... More

Ok, so it's not a dump anymore. It's clean and Carl is very nice, but for $150, I would expect more than a comfortable bed. Yes, there's a refrigerator, microwave and cooktop, but absolutely nothing to use with them. There's not even a plastic cup in the room. No coffee maker. No tissues. Only one nightstand.
