My experience with Dwarf Line began with an inquiring phone call. Of all four places I called to check availability, Dwarf Line was the only one that I did not have to leave a message as I did others. I actually got to speak with a real person right from the start. After reviewing the other places, I decided I got the best vibe from Dwarf Line. I vaguely remember staying there as a teen with my parents and other family members have stayed there as well throughout the years (my family has been coming to Sylvan Beach for 35 years now) with no complaints. The appeal for me is it's off the main drag but just close enough to drive to (about two minutes to the amusement park). There are no loud cars racing along the road blasting music, no people strolling past your bedroom late at night creating raucous, no sounds of parties and music from the bars along the main drag to deal with. This is a family-oriented establishment that has been around awhile and knows how to treat guests. Yes, it's rustic, 50's style but if you view the website you will know that already - hence no surprises.Yes there is dark paneled walls but if you knowledge yourself with photos from the website, it's not that big of a deal. Actually who uses a hotel room in a resort town like that for nothing much but to sleep anyways? If you enjoy Sylvan Beach (which is a true blast from the past) the Dwarf Line fits right in. I actually enjoyed the simplicity of it and friendliness of the caretakers - you don't get that in some corporate hotel establishment. The rooms were very clean and orderly. I like that every room has a coffee maker and a fridge - a must for us. There is a firepit, swingset, grill and a screened gazebo to enjoy a bit of the outside on a hot summer night. Yes, there are mosquitoes, as there would be in any type of beach town, so arm yourself with repellent and don't worry about it. Our family did not get bitten once while there and mosquitoes just love my daughter. We had no bugs in our room. The towels and sheets were clean and fresh. I could not hear a peep from the other guests in adjoining rooms - one thing's for certain, this 50's style hotel had better walls then brand new ones of today! My only complaint was the small sink. It was difficult to really wash up without making a mess and filling the coffee pot with water was a bit tricky. However, there would not be much room for a bigger sink anyway so we just roll with it - such an insignificant inconvenience but thought I'd mention it anyway. If you truly desire pure luxury and to wallow away in some huge fancy hotel room, then this is not the place for you. I, for one, do not intend to waste my time in the hotel but rather getting out and enjoying all that the town has to offer. We go to Sylvan Beach every year and usually rent a large cottage with our extended family. However, if the occasion arises again that I just need one room or small cottage, Dwarf Line will be my first pick!
