Absolutely the best place so far on our road trip. We are covering the whole eastern 1/2 of the US. We are staying in the triplexes. Do yourself a favor a check in here. Only 1 short block from the water. Great staff. Comfortable bed, and living quarters with full kitchen, here for a wk.

This is a great little hotel right on Atlantic avenue. Very clean and well maintained with a throwback-to-a-simpler-time décor. Very reasonably priced during peak season. The owners are very pleasant.

This by far was the worst place I have ever booked. Pictures were very very deceiving. Please do not book this place for families or friends. Place was very worn and smelled odorous. West wing hotel room we booked was really a basement. Very shabby and very overpriced. Overall less then a 1 star.

Its ok. Nice location. Ocean is right across the street. Bus stop is out front & Dunkin Doughnuts is nearby for a quick breakfast in the mornings. Parking is difficult due to very small parking areas.

I've stayed here before. I have never had a bad experience. The owner and staff are always friendly. They could make money training staff at other motels how to act. I stayed at one of the cottages for the first time. Loved it. Hit the pool, ride the bike, or sit on the screened in porch and watch the waves.... More
