We stayed two nights in the 3 bedroom cottage. It was in good condition considering the age of the house which I estimate to be at least 50 years old. There was cable in the living room and in each bedroom. The layout of the cottage was a bit quirky and the bathrooms were very small. The kitchen was nice...

We stayed here while attending wedding festivities for a family member per her recommendations. We arrived at 1:30am and the key was left at a prearranged location for us. Our room reeked of smoke (it was a non-smoking room) so the following morning, it was mentioned to an employee, who relayed it to the owner, who promptly exchanged the key...

First I need to say that the people here are genuinely nice people and it is not with pleasure that I write this. With that said though, that's unfortunately where the positive comments end (other than it is close to the beach). First, I have to concur with other comments here, there are roaches in these units, all of them!...

We stayed in the cottage/house. It was the quintessential beach house. We just loved it! It had 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, living room. dining room, washer/dryer, and large porch to relax on. Beautifully decorated, fully loaded with everything we could possibly need. Clean, comfortable, close to the beach and in the center of town but just off the main...

Online photos did not show the extreme wear and tear on the rooms. A coffee pot was provided, but no coffee. Maid service not automatically provided; had to request it. No towel bars or toilet paper holder in bathroom. Washcloths had dark spots on them and when I went to wash my face, I found someone else's hair on the...

My friends and I went for a relaxing weekend and it was the 1st.... but definitely not the last time we will stay here. The Darlington is a hidden treasure in my opinion. It is on the main strip...and we could see the ocean from our 3rd floor room. With our experience...it was laid back and so much fun. And...

This cozy hotel is perfect for a quick get away. We loved the location. The website says guests park their cars and never use them the whole time they're here: that certainly is true of us. Everything is in walking distance, the beach is exactly a one minute walk across the street, and the room has all you need for...

My wife and I spent 4 nights. There were 3 main criteria when we booked, rating, close to the beach and pet friendly. Great on all accounts. This is an older hotel that the owner takes great pride in. It is very well maintained and we plan to return. There is a nice outdoor pool and the beach is a...
