“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2011

3rd Coast Inn was a wonderful and relaxing experience for our busy family. The room was comfortable, CLEAN and cozy. We were late getting to town and Darcy stopped by to meet us. The next morning when we went over to check in there was a goodie basket waiting for our dogs.

We were walking distance to the beach, food and shopping, but we loved the pool the most. We felt like we were staying with friends instead of at a hotel. We really loved the laid back atomosphere of the place. Darcy and Sierra were both wonderful and we are already looking at our calenders to return. We highly recommend the 3rd Coast Inn.

Room Tip: Room #2 was great for our small family.

I saw all the good reviews on this place and was surprised, honestly, at all the good things that were being said about it for the price. My boyfriend and I stayed in one of the single rooms (#7) and it was cozy and the perfect size for us.
It's the perfect distance to the beach; just a quick walk down avenue G. We didn't use the pool or hot tub, but they looked very clean and tempting. Darcy was awesome, too! We stayed from Thursday night to Saturday morning and we weren't able to get there until around 2am Friday morning, and he let us check in late and pay the next day. That was really telling of the great hospitality. Thanks for running such an awesome place, Darcy!

We just got back from a weeks stay with Darcy and Deanna at their 3rd Coast Inn. The inn is adorable. It was such a nice, relaxing place to stay. The appliances are top notch. They do a beautiful job with the pool, hot tub and social area....We will certainly be back!

We were traveling to Port A for a large family function. We have family that live in Port A and ALMOST stayed at Best Western across the street, until our family member stopped in and checked out 3rd Coast. Its a small motel, but VERY CLEAN and comfortable. Although we didn't use it, it had a fully stocked kitchen (all dishes, pots/pans/fridge/stove, etc). We had room one (which had two rooms and the kitchen), our neice and her family had room 2 (which also had two bedrooms), this made it nice for traveling with kids and other family members. It's a 1/2 mile walk to the beach! The motel had a nice pool and hottub. I highly recommend this and when we visit again, it will be where we stay in the future! The owner, Darcy, was VERY accomodating to our entire family (our family member lives right around the corner, and after checkout, he still let us bring the kids over to swim!!!) Glad we chose 3rd Coast Inn over Best Western!!!

Room Tip: Room 1 & 2 have 2 bedrooms!

This place is great and Darcy works super hard to keep it that way. We stayed in room #2 and loved having the two beds in separate rooms, especially having little children. The pool and hot tub are wonderful and Darcy has everything you need. The rooms are very clean (and I am a clean freak!!) and plenty of room for our family of 5. The rooms are very sound proof as well. This is the place to stay when visiting Port A!

I found 3rd Coast Inn by a mere coincedence and I must say that we were very pleased. The web site doesn't give this quaint motel it's just desserts. The rooms are clean, comfortable and decorated with beach memorabilia. We will definately be back to stay again. The owner is a young laid back guy that works hard and makes you feel at home. Thanks Darcy, we hope that you continue on with more success!
Sincerely,
The Turmel's

Mr. Darcy and his staff were awesome! The room was great and clean. We loved the hot tub and pool area. The Inn was within walking distance of the beach and shops. We look forward to staying there again in the summer.
