My wife and I recently returned to the West Wind Inn to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We honeymooned at the West Wind in 1981. Ironically, we were given the same room! To our surprise, the room had been elarged into the only suite in the hotel. The room (235) was wonderfull with a full kitchen. The Inn has added a restaurant (great breakfast) and a pool bar since our last stay. The staff was very courteous, and the ability to rent bikes at the hotel lobby was convenient. One tip-if you want a beach set up (umbrella and two lounge chairs-$20 fee), you need to sign up early because of limited supply. We were lucky the days we wanted them, but others were fustrated. We found that many set empty as people had signed up for the entire week, but rarely showed up. The real star attraction of the West Wind Inn is the AAA+ location. The Inn is on the less traveled part of the island with a beautiful beach. I would recommend the West Wind Inn if you want a quiet, relaxing beach vacation.
