We drove out to Atlantic beach for a quick overnight stay. The inn is ok for one night. Great location, and all oceanfront rooms. However pricey and not the cleanest we have been to. Would be ok if it was cheaper. Not worth what we payed. Nice pool though and steps away from the beach.

This location is killer. But the staff and condition of the place really needs some improvements. They had a shortage of glass ware. The lobby had a funky smell. The "free" coffee in the lobby was awful.

Had a great time never left the Clam Digger Inn Food was great! Great Hospitality. The room was relatively clean. Wifi did cut out some. The first night we had seafood , wife got the clam strips and they were perfectly cooked I had the fried shrimp and oysters and they were also perfectly cooked. Will go back

Loved the ocean view room, pool bar, pool, and access to the beach (just a few steps). The restaurant was dark, the food, not so good. Check-in took forever. Desk clerk not there at first. No bell to ring to summon him.

This quality waterslide remains near and dear to my heart. However, with the new Benny the jet Rodriguez run staff, they have become a bit goofy. A simple room with 5 California king sized beds now costs the fortune of $6420 per night! That's a ridiculous fee for my ferret and I if we wish to stay one night to... More

This was my first visit. The room had an ocean view which was worth the price and although the hotel is rather old, the room was clean and well maintained. The hotel had rental chairs and umbrellas which were great for a day at the beach. Their Tiki bar made it possible to eat lunch outside. The staff was very... More

We've been going to the Inn for thirty years so this place holds sentimental value. It does need that new, fresh update and we look forward to that. Grateful to the newer staff, particularly Terri, (affectionately nicknamed, "the hushpuppy lady") who took time to answer our questions concerning the restaurant and hotel changes. We are hoping that the rooms improve... More

It is always a nice place to stay. Oceanfront rooms, It is a little dated but the new owners are making many changes. With that said the prices may go up when all is completed. Staff is extremely nice. No smoking anywhere which is very nice.

We planned a last minute weekend getaway and wanted oceanfront with a pool and restaurant. The clam digger looked like it checked all the boxes, and although very expensive it seemed like it would work for a weekend. The pros: the views are spectacular. You can see for miles and you are steps from the stunning beach. Also the staff... More
