We just returned from a night at the Normandy Inn. The location is fabulous and the hotel is quaint. Others have called it outdated, but I don't believe that is how I would describe it. The room is very adequate with all the expected ammenities, though no air coniditioning, but doubt if it is needed too often as the hotel is only a couple of blocks from the ocean. The walls are rather thin, so you do hear noise from the adjoining room. The bed was very comfortable, though the pillows could have used some updating (We're not fans of polyester pillows.). The breakfast was called a continental breakfast and so it was....cereal, bagels, muffins, hard boiled eggs, bananas, apples, yogurt, coffee, juices, etc. basically your typical continental breakfast. The front desk people were lovely and there to answer any question or resolve issues. One recommendation I would have is to ask for a room away from the street. Early morning traffic did awaken us as did people walking along the street. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
