Custer House
Reviewed August 8, 2010

I am here for about 2 weeks in starting the second week in August, 2010 working an event, my employer found the room and booked it for the entire time. My room was in the middle of three cottages walking distance to the grocery store, beaches and all the general promenade activities. The room was brand new remodeled with a micro kitchen, and a cute gas fireplace saving me about $10 a day on expensive wood (no smores with it though, but that’s ok, I save those for the beach anyhow). The kitchen had a sufficient supply of plates, pots and such for a full in-room meal if you had the desire. The stand up shower was hot with plenty of room to move and was stocked with (this is a first for me) localy made organic soaps and shower gel. There was just me for this stay, but there is easily room for a family of 4 or 5, with a queen size bed, full dining room seating 4, large couch that’s also a hid-a-bed, and not the one with the bar that ruins you back, basicly it’s a fully furnished studio apt, it feels to be about 4 or 500 square feet.

So the reviews about smell or whatever, those issues if any have been fully resolved, I’m 100% satisfied with the Custer House and staff, and impressed with the cleanliness and free organic soaps for use during my stay

We didn't expect too much, considering the price and location.But this was a sad little place-we stayed in the house,in the blue Nautical room and Rose Room. The owners were lovely and accomodating but clueless as to what actually constitutes a "bed and breakfast". The Nautical room beds were so hard that I actually slept on the extra pillows on top of the mattress the first night-my daughter(25) had the second hideaway bed,which was actually worse than mine! The bed linens were as worn out as the beds. We had prepaid for two rooms,so toughed it out for the 2nd night with my other family members. No sense of any pride in this place-dead flowers out front, definitely needs some TLC.Strong,musty odor in rooms needed windows to be kept open, although everything seemed clean. Had to keep asking for toilet paper. No water,tea or any extras in room. A bare bones place, centrally located. They have lovely bath products for sale-they should sell this place and concentrate on that part of their business.

I do not agree with the negative comments.posted by others. We stayed in one of the Cottages and found it to be wonderful. The owners were so accommadating for us. Very personable and friendly. I contacted them personally for our reservation and they answered all of my questions and even allowed me to bring my 2 nieces without additional charge. The cottages make you feel you are right at the beach, actually you are within 2 blocks of the beach and the main downtown area. It was very quiet at night, even with the 2 other cottages. Please do not believe the other comments. Go stay for yourselves and you will see it is a great place.The price was great compared to the hotels/motels. I live in Chicago, and it was great to spend 3 days playing in the sand and eating pronto pups.

I booked the room over 2 months in advance. The website calls it a turn of the century Queen Anne home, Romantic room with large private bath and clawfoot tub. Wholesome breakfast served at 9am. We arrive to find that the B&B is closed and we have to stay in a "cabin" which is really a tiny one room kitchenette with a stand up shower (kid size cereal box on table)
.
Then to top it off they refuse to take my coupon saying that they don't take them in the summer when the printout in my hand (from there website) clearly states it is accepted anytime. Then she says it's only good if you tell her when you make the reservation. This is stated nowhere on the coupon and when her husband told her they had to accept it, she refuse Unbelieveable. She said she was going to charge my credit card full price and we left. We will work it out with VISA.

We stayed in one of the cottages, it smelled very odd and we had to keep a window open to air it out. Seemed clean but the smell made you wonder. Very close to down town Seaside with off street parking. Also didn't know that you didn't get breakfast when you stay in a cottage and had to go into town to eat. Make sure to ask when booking a room.
