It's across the street (Perry street is not busy and simple to cross) from the Congress Hall hotel (with which the Star Inn is affiliated), a short block to the beach, and a block in the other direction from the quaint downtown shopping district ... great location!
The Star Inn is a smallish, older, 3-storey house, which has been converted to an inn. Not a modern luxury hotel by any standard, but very nice, clean, and fairly updated, with good service. We stayed on the third floor with an ocean view ... nice, but watch your head, since the roofline intrudes into the room! The bathroom is nicely updated, but the location in the eaves makes it difficult to stand up (the mirror over the sink is fairly useless (only a foot and a half high between the sink and the sloping roof) but there is a mirrored wall to the side (not a big deal). Towel and linen service twice a day is great for a beach hotel!
Only problem during our 5 day stay was the last night when some very unruly (and most likely drunk) people had a protracted and recurring shouting and door slamming match (in the hallways and outside)! Not pleasant in the middle of the night!!
The amenities at the Congress Hall across the street are all available to guests of the Star Inn (including complementary umbrella, chair, and towel service on the beach!). The Blue Pig restaurant in Congress Hall is good, and Star guest receive a $14 daily credit toward breakfast.
