The location is on the beach, the bar is SOOOOOOO good with its drinks, music and food. If you are looking for a luxury place, this is not it. Its a little loud at night which is a good thing or a bad think depending on your situation. It was not crazy loud but on the weekend there is a... More

My wife said the coffee maker was "disgusting", so she went out each morning for her coffee. The bed was comfortable. The bar was nice and not too noisy late at night. The best thing was that you...

They didn't even mentioned it when we checked in that there was no pool, what a disappointment!! Why didn't they tell us that when... More

GREAT PLACE... clean rooms... it's nice to have rooms right off the beach. Very accessible, clean roomy, comfortable bed, a little older, and a bit pricey, although a great place to visit! Has an awesome grill and bar on sight, with good, efficient, and nice staff!

no frills inn but very clean and great people to work with. Alexa and Hanna were exceptional to our needs and info requests. The Inn is right on the beach and has a lot of day trippers but is quiet at night at least during off season!!

I had 2 rooms 106 and 107 on the ground floor. They were clean and had a coffe maker, frig and micro wave. They provide coffee and filters. I think the maid service needs to be improved but it was just OK. Bed and linens comfortable. TV. Each room has and ac but they are kinda of noisy...but do cool.

“Good luck with that :) Have only been in the 1 room--2nd floor would probably be nicer because of the view of water is better, but the steps are kind of steep up to that floor--so lugging suitcases may not be so easy.”
