The Great Heron Inn is a great place to stay right on the beach. If you were more on the beach you'd be swimming.
The rooms are like little houses, with fully-equipped kitchens, separate living area, separate bedroom(s). They are clean---I never encountered any leftover anything or any dishes that weren't clean. It's homey, comfortable and awesome. It's like going to stay at a family member's home.
I absolutely adore this place! Herons flying in and out of the pool area (one at a time, and usually posing for magnificent pictures), the dock across the street, the attentive and courteous way that guests are welcomed throughout their visit ...and they mean it.
The "rooms"--because they're not rooms, they're little suites---are equipped with everything you'd want. Extra blankets, etc. I don't know why someone would say that dishes weren't clean enough. If that's the case, they provide dish washing liquid.
Again, I never found anything in our room that didn't belong...
But I found this Inn to be lovely, and I would tell anyone to stay.
