I do not understand how or why anyone could give this place a bad review. We just got back today after a 6 night stay at the Inn. From the beginning everyone on the staff was so friendly. Nikki at the front desk was such a sweet pleasant and friendly person. Yes the beach is a golf cart ride away but we were taken there within minutes of requesting a ride and picked up with minimal wait after calling the desk when we were ready to leave the beach. The beach was nice and quite. There are 4 pools to choose from but the one right by the Inn is by far the largest and best. The pool by the beach has a great view and wonderful breeze but the water was heated which is not what I wanted on a warm day. The room was very clean and I am a picky person about cleanliness and was very pleased with the room. We did have to change out our linens at the front desk but that was no problem. We did not have to use any of the beach towels we took with us as they provided a clean one whenever we took the used one back even if it was several during a day, so I do not understand what the person was talking about in the earlier post about having to use the same beach towel for a week, nonsense... If you hate dogs probably best you stay somewhere else as this place is very dog friendly. My sister and I both took our dogs and they had a wonderful vacation there with us. The stores in the little village there are also dog friendly. On Monday nights the have a concert on the " green" there and we enjoyed that very much. The restaurant there called the Castaways has a Philly cheese steak to die for. The Inn also has bicycles you can check out for free, for an hour at a time, which is enough time for a great ride around the beautiful property. The only complaint is that for the price maid services should have been included and not only provide if you were willing to pay extra(which we were not) and there should have been free beach chairs and umbrellas on the beach as part of their services. I hear the rent on those is $30 a day, ridiculous. All in all a wonderful place for a get away especially with your furry friend in tow. I do not know what some people expect these days after reading some of the reviews. No place is completely perfect. Those people who are so picky need to get a life or maybe just stay at home
