Since we weren't staying for a full week, a hotel was our only real choice. Island Inn is a throwback to the days of "mom & pop" motels. Very clean, but minimalist features. Excellent location, across the street from the ocean, walking distance to a number of good restaurants. Very laid back, family-style place. Beds were "firm"; pillows the same. Be sure to bring or be prepared to buy beach towels. The hotel is very clear that theirs are for use in the room only. The air conditioning is a wall unit that is pretty noisy.
