My husband and I went by the reviews listed and the pictures of the Inn. I am guessing the pictures of the rooms and pool area are very old photos.The place is in need of an overhaul. Out of the three buildings one is closed off for safety issues with notices posted in windows and yellow tape blocking the stairways. the pool area furniture is all beat up and the wicker lounges brocken in spaces with cushions that dont really fit the chairs. Cracks going down the buildings with rust stains, Walls that should be repainted, shutters that are cracked and broken, awnings ripped, adirondack chairs outside your room door with broken slats where you sit. Main lobby where they have a complimentary breakfast of bagels and muffins, coffee, juice, milk, cereal has a real mildew smell. they state they have lounge chairs for the beach but if there are more than 4 people staying there you are out of luck. the kitchen in our room was very out dated. the freezer need to be defrosted and the door would not shut. The ice maker was by the pool but did not work for the entire week we were there. The pictures show nice white down bedspreads but our was a thin coverlet with holes in it. On the first night I had a huge bug land on my arm while in bed and brought it to the office and was told would take care of problem in the morning. Ended up having to change rooms and was charged addition money. I would have cancelled and gone to another inn but they have a no refund policy under any sitution (you rented it you own the room). They also state that pool and amenities are for registered guests only and no friends or family are allowed to use the amenities. Yet on Saturday a person was allowed to rent two rooms and had over 50 people there between the pool and beach for a huge birthday party. The parking was terrible since they only have so many spots and this persons guests took all the parking I ended up being blocked in with cars parked behind me. The only thing I can say that is good about the inn is the location. If you want a really good place try the beachside resort across the street or the half moon resort down the street.
