I stayed at the Sleep inn off US 98 and actually ended up getting more than what I expected. I was visiting family and had a tight budget to keep, and found that the rate was reasonable through the july 4th weekend. It was my first time traveling in years and I forgot that most hotels will hold the funds charged to your room when you check in (charges will be pending until check-out, after check-out withdrawn a few days later). However, that was a learning experience for an inexperienced traveler so heads up to those who are like me! Anyway the hotel is smaller it only has two floors, but something I appreciated wanting to avoid july 4th wild crowd. My room was very clean with a frig, mircrowave, iron and iron-board are provided. Check in was very prompt and staff was pleasant. Continential breakfast is served everyday from 6:30-9:30AM. There is cold and hot cereal available, danishes, etc. A waffel maker is provided, eggs, and susage. I belive the eggs and susage are pre-cooked but I was glad to eliminate one meal to save money. This hotel is not directly on the beach, and I would recommend people not to stay on the beach especially if they don't like noise. Again this was july 4th weekend so there is plenty of noise from the younger crowd. The hotel is in reasonable distance to the beach and other surrounding resturants to sit down and eat. There is an outdoor pool at the hotel, but I just went to the beach instead. The ocean is spectacular at night time and less crowded, or in the early afternoon hours are good also. Expect LOTS of traffic if you leave the beach in the evening hours. I never went to the beach on 4th of July and if anyone expects to be there, expect bummer to bummer traffic. My room also had high speed internet complimentary and a fabulous walk- in shower, The bathroom is a little tight cause the shower takes up most of the room, but i appreciated it. If traveling with young children it is far enough from noise, yet close enough to take them to the beach where there is plenty to do for all ages (ripleys believe it or not, mini-gulf, go karts, arcades, water parks, etc). Sleep inn is nothing REAL fancy but I was impressed for being on a budget. Try it I had a quiet, reasonable stay.
