I stayed here a weekend with my wife and found it to be a wonderful gem. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, and the rooms were clean and well-decorated. The LCD tv with hdmi was a delight as I had brought my own system to play videos.
No, the inn is not on the beach but just a few blocks from one, which kept the area quiet and peaceful.
The only thing I couldn't find nearby was a vending machine for drinks which could have been handy but the restaurant next door solved this problem.
