“Very basic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in a king suite since that's all they had available. Plenty of room, but over kill for the two of us. Construction is low end contractor grade and the furnishings are as we'll. Nice view from the back and a couple of blocks from the Atlantic.

If you want something very basic and clean, go for it. If you're use to more up-scale accommodations you'll be very disappointed as we were.

Unfortunately there aren't many other options. You can also forget fine dining in the area.

My recommendation is avoid the whole area.

This motel is awesom! Great price and location. Steps to the ocean. Cool pool with spouts for the kids. Great view of sound and ocean from the front and back deck. Has an elevator, Laundry mat and varanda on 3rd floor. Internet was good.There is a picnic table and grill by the pool we cooked burgers wile we watched the kids swim. Staff was friendly and great housekeeping, got fresh towels daily. I was in a king suite it had plenty of room the pullout couch was a bonus, full kitchen with a dishwasher and everything you would need. I will be back soon. LOVE THIS MOTEL!!!

The Tiffany was a great place to stay for the price. It has beach access across the street, nice staff, and clean rooms.
The room was a little musty smelling upon check in but aired out quickly!
Would definitely stay there again in the future.

We stayed at Tiffany's again about a month ago and as always, it was wonderful. We will continue to recommend Tiffany's to anyone who asks about lodging on the island and we will always return for mini-getaways ourselves. Close proximity to everything; excellent ocean and soundside views; comparable and very reasonable prices, considering location, season, and the excellent amenities! We STILL love Tiffany's!

I recommend this motel for the great location and a good value. Located not far from the restaurants and shops and the 3 minute walk to a nice beach that is not crowded. Stayed four nights on the south side on the second floor. Large rooms with comfortable beds and nice kitchenette with coffee maker and new small refrigerator with great freezer. Coffee was provided. Ice is free from the office on the first floor which is open 9 am to 5 pm. TV worked fine. No phone in room. Bathroom was clean with a separate single sink and medium counter space. Housekeeping made the beds each day and left clean towels and washcloths. Shampoo and soap provided but no lotion.

Walls are a little thin but the air conditioner drowns out a lot of noise! Balcony is great to have although not very private. Pool is nice and sunny with areas of shade and there are private outdoor showers to rinse off from the beach. Parking was sufficient and in a lighted area. We paid additional to stay two hours past checkout time which was well worth it.

For the price we paid it was a good value. Would return.

My 2 daughters and myself needed a day at the beach away for the normal things in life. I was really impressed. I did not hear any noise, comfortable bed, clean room and actually much larger than the photos represent. Not far at all from shops, food and less than a 3 minute walk to the beach. In July we are planning on taking my husband and going back.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side have a great view of the island and beach

My boyfriend and I stayed from 6/11-6/13/13, just a short romantic type of thing. We stayed in the JR. suite, The room wasn't exactly luxury, but it is very VERY similar to a beach condo. So comfortable; 5 minute (at most) walk to the beach, Privacy, and amazing A.C!! My only complaint would be that we brought frozen alcoholic pouches, that need to be in a freezer for 6-8 hrs, And then they're ready. They were in the freezer for 2 days, and still liquid. Not a big deal, though. The beach is amazing here, so private! We sat on the beach until 11 pm watching netflix on his phone. I would definitely recommend this room to a couple, and if you are not snooty about stuff. I mean 100/night for a room that holds up to 4 people is not bad at all. If you are going to complain about the small things, go stay at a Hilton!! From what I have read, It seems they are more attentive for the King suite rooms. Next time we are bringing more people and will be staying in a king suite.
