What Can I say about this place? We stay here each time we are down in the area. We have stayed probably 6 time in last 5 or 6 years. The place is nice and quiet. All rooms have ocean views and have plenty of space for the family. Rooms have mini refrigerators and little kitchenettes. I would tell you... More

Stayed at this hotel for the first time last weekend after many years. All the staff at check in were very pleasant and the overall experience was good. The room condition was satisfactory for the rate we paid, and was very clean, which is always a plus. The view from our 7th floor room was just extraordinary. Appears that the... More

Giving the reviews, I was kind of hesitant to stay here, but it was the only place with oceanfront rooms under $200.00 so I decided to try it. I was very pleasantly surprised. It is clean, good size room with balcony and great staff . Location cannot be beat and it is a great bargain that I can only recommend.

We usually stay here once a year and have come back most every year because of the nice atmosphere and the food. Our last visit this month was less then good. There is now no room service, and the food menu has been reduced. The food is not very good anymore, and there are hardly any folks in the restaurant... More

Thank you for your recent review. We are making exciting changes to the Clam Digger Inn, however, room service has not been in place for well over a year now, before ownership changed. We have also made changes to our menu based on reviews of what actually sold in the restaurant and also on customer requests for more healthy selections.... More

Under new management. Things are not good. The cost was higher than past years, and we waited around 2 hours to get into our room. We did not have chairs on our balcony, and we left a day early due to there not being water on July 12 in the afternoon. We ate breakfast in the restaurant, but I received... More

I called to book a room this weekend and the rates have almost doubled from this time a year ago. This has been my home away from home for 15 years. I visit all year long! An average family or single mom and daughter (like me) will not be able to afford this hotel anymore. I was there in May... More

I thought the rooms were more than fair for the price...all rooms are oceanfront...they are a bit dated, but not enough to be concerned about. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool is nice the only problem I had was the pool was the smoking area...so the constant smell of smoke kinda bothered me and some cigarette butts... More

This hotel should be awesome, because of it's location, beach, and all the rooms having an ocean view but our stay was disappointing. We paid $240/ night. When we checked in at 630pm, we got keys to a room that had not been cleaned. It was "clean" by the time we got back from dinner but we had to use... More

But now under new management----mmmm, not so much. We have been coming to the Clam Digger for years and have always loved the quaint atmosphere, proximity to the beach, fun and casual staff and reasonable prices. Seems the new investors have other ideas for it now. Agreed the hotel could probably use a face lift but certainly not identity change... More

Room was good. Beds were good & comfortable (one position was right in front of the air conditioner so I had to more a chair over to block the cold air from blowing directly onto me while sleeping). Very good balcony and with great view of the beach and the pool. Refrigerator was very small-not much bigger than the microwave... More
