Too close to office and street, thus less privacy and noisier than we wanted.

What a GEM!!
"THANK YOU!!" All of the staff was wonderful!! An older property that is well taken care of! We spent 4 nights in a King bed w/fireplace room. Very spacious! Breakfast was a nice spread of fruit, berries, granola, yogurt, bread & bagels to toast, 3 blends of fresh coffee (always available!!), cold cereal, milk even Silk, juice, & awesome belgian waffles made to order! I had one every morning & I would love to know your secret to perfectly shaped waffles, every single time?? Mine never turn out like that at home!! Lol!!! We will be back!!

Room near the beach
Room was so-so. Mold in bathroom was disturbing and you have to go up and down a series of unconnected steps to get to your room unless you are on the ground floor. You can get waffles made for you for breakfast, which is a nice touch. Bed was clean and comfortable, and location was nice.

Good location
Good location and very nice, helpful staff. The linens were good but room could use a refresh. Would probably return for a short stay.

Thumbs Up
Really well maintained facility, great breakfast and service. I'd stay here again. Only small complaint is that the rooms don't have AC, but that probably wouldn't bother most people, since you're a block from the beach and have a good ocean breeze.
