The Inn has a great location. It is across the street from Lighthouse Inn, where I also stayed. The Sand Dollar is cheaper, somewhat. Rooms in the back, facing the parking lot, are $160, during the week. After experiencing the heat wave, I opted for a front room, for $180. However, the windows don't fully open. It is a picture window and side "crank" windows and a louvered window at the door. There's a big ceiling fan, which came in handy when the temp got up to 90. When I was in the room in the back, I was kept up by the people in the neighboring room who were outside their room until after 1:00 am, smoking & drinking. The next day I complained. The sign outside says "no smoking on premises." The manager didn't respond to this. Also, they tend to be cheap. The whole time I was there (4 days) I had one roll of toilet paper and no paper towels, etc. for the kitchenette. One packet of coffee for the 4 days. Every night my fridge (tiny thing) would quit and water would pour out on the floor. Then, mysteriously, the thing would kick in and be operating when I woke up. In the meantime, I'd taken everything out and put it in my cooler. This happened every night. I also ate at their little restaurant on the premise: Lily's. They advertise a "Lily's luscious omelette," that isn't . Also, the dining room is only one-half air conditioned and during the heat wave, that half was occupied early...
When it was time to go, I didn't realize that check-out was 10 am (how uncivilized!) and I assumed it was 11. In any event, I went out to my car to put things away, and when I returned to the room the manager was already there, cleaning my room. Scared me to death! She didn't apologize, she just kept on working. I'm afraid that while the Pine Point beach is beautiful, the hotel situation is not the greatest. There are only 3. Better to rent one of the houses or condos that are advertised.
