Love the all oceanfront rooms but the hotel is very dated....Breakfast service was great, Dinner was a nightmare. Bedding was comfortable and the staff was helpful. I would stay again if the pricing were right.

We wanted to enjoy the ocean, but being a bit up in age, we didn't want to walk too far for our ocean fix. The Clam Digger suited us just fine. it is from a bygone era but the view from the 5th floor was wonderful, the sound of the sea and the view of the waves was relaxing. We... More

We stayed 5 nights at the Clam Digger and enjoyed our time there. The hotel's decor is dated but there was a sign in the lobby stating that they had new owners and would be renovating in the Fall 2016. We were looking for a quiet, stress free week and that is exactly what we got.The hotel is clean and... More

All the other reviews are correct. This is a clean, extremely well located, slightly rundown hotel. Nothing fancy, free internet with lots and lots of rare Pokemon lol. I did wish for a kitchenette. The in house restaurant is not a normal hotel restaurant. It is reasonablt priced, decent food, very convenient. The walk out to beach, pool and hot... More

Holiday Inn-type rooms but every room faced the ocean and had a balcony. The restaurant was average-nothing special. The pool was clean; the kids went back and forth from the pool to the beach very quickly. Good hotel for what we paid but definitely not luxurious.

First things first - I would stay here again. I enjoyed the location, the room, and the convenience to the beach. The pool was nice, the outdoor bar was nice, and the room was adequate for a beach hotel - a bit worn and weary, and a mattress so stiff that you could chop vegetables on if in a pinch.... More

I normally stay at another hotel due to their pet-friendly policy. This trip was sans dog and because I took someone who hadn't seen the beach in years I wanted the amenities of an ocean front pool, poolside bar and close access to my favorite Salter Path restaurant. Clam Digger fit the bill on all 3. Price was reasonable. Room... More

Once a great place to stay and eat this place has turned into a nightmare since the change in ownership this year. It is truly sad.
