A friend recommended this quaint hotel located right on the beach. I ended up staying an extra night which was no hassle at all for myself or the staff. The staff was very attentive. Brenda at the front desk was such a helpful sweetheart. Nicole in housekeeping made sure that I had everything that I needed during our stay. It was great for the price snd we had an awesome stay. Thanks guys. Will see you again soon :)

You can’t miss this beautiful place. The colors are so bright, and aesthetic just draws you in. Staff is also amazing! Extremely professional and always willing to take care of the guest. Chris helped my friend and I book a room here after I was crapped out of a roach hotel (Summer Wind DO NOT GO) so when I say how relieving it was to enter this clean, beautiful facility- believe me. Our room was so adorable; updated amenities, gorgeous marble countertops, Smart TV, and beds you can sink into after drinking tequila in the sun all day :) and the best part: they have Pet Friendly rooms available so you can bring your babies. Mermaid Inn has became a beloved spot for my friend and I- and we plan to make traditional trips here- and ONLY here! :)

The staff here was friendly, the room was in good order and we loved the access to the beach. I was shocked to find that staff was not wearing masks, there is no plexiglass at check in, not even a bottle of hand sanitizer was present in the lobby. From what I could see housekeeping staff was not wearing gloves or masks and taking no extra precautions between rooms. We stayed at the end of June as cases in the area were clearly rising. We declined housekeeping for our stay. We asked for extra towels and the very nice man who delivered them was balancing the stack with his face. This is a super cute place and in normal times I would have no complaints but staff seems to be totally unaware of the pandemic.

It's always hard to find clean, dog-friendly boarding. We looked at four places before we took a chance on The Mermaid Inn...and it was worth it! We were steps away from the beach, it was quiet, but close to anything we wanted to do. We would definitely stay here again. Eileen was wonderful!

The staff here were excellent. Facilities were ok. Right next to the public beach access. I doubt you're going to stay on the water for less money. There isn't an elevator and parking is very limited. That being said I would consider staying here again.
