This was mine and my husband's first time to visit Cruise Inn. Its obviouse that Chip and Evie work hard to see that everyone is comfortable. They came outside where we were sitting with friends, and took the time to find out who we were, and what we thought of the place. Evie's warm smile will make anyone feel welcome. Yet, you can see her work ethic in the way she keeps the rooms so clean, and obviously ready for the individual person staying there. We had specific towels in the room that were just for wiping down the motorcycle .. what other place would provide that!? In the Throttle Down Tavern, Evie sings and entertains everyone, while Chip manages to be the best bartender that anyone I went with had ever seen. Whether you want to hang out with friends around the pool, or go to a on-site bar "where everybody knows your name", this is the place to hang out and have fun. Cruise Inn is very condusive to bringing a group and hanging out, which is what we did. However, we met a couple that came by themselves, and they joined in and had a much fun as we did.
The view from the balcony in our room was spectacular! We both wished we had time to sit and enjoy it more. Each individual balcony has a chain-link fence, so you and your friends in the room next to you can sit on your own balcony, and still be able to visit. This is probably not the perfect place for someone who does not want to be social.. however, knowing Evie, if you let her know, she can probably find a more private room for you. This is not a luxury hotel with granite and pillars, there is no mints on the pillow or room service .. but if you are looking for a fun affordable place with super clean rooms and super nice people .. this is it!!
