Great hotel!

Good 6.0
cute but not the best location
Cute place , clean and nice staff but it is next to a industrial building on one side and an old apartment on the other. It is also not by the harbor.
Scott, us1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Unexpectedly we had to change rooms late night because the shower handle gasket broke and water would've turn off. But guest services did do a good job in accommodating us and locating another room immediately.

Charming Inn by the Beach
Great little inn in walking distance to the beach and other attractions. It was close yet far enough to not have noise from the street be an issue. Check in was a smooth process even though we arrived after 11pm. The room was clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay again!

Very good 8.0
it was good stay
The only issue I had is they have only one electric charge EV parking and they have no rules. they should have limit time for these cars. I hope they look into this problem.

Excellent stay!
This place was terrific!! My BFF and u came to celebrate her birthday and the Inn was perfect! The place is a little older but it was SO clean, the beds were comfy and we even had a FULL KITCHEN in our unit! Shout out to Frank who made our stay even better. He even welcomed us with a bottle of champagne and and wine tasting for two for my friends birthday! I will mention that ater our first night we noticed our sink was backed up but they were very quick to fix it. Also, it is a little further away from State Street then we would have liked but we walked the distance and didn’t have any trouble. We would stay there again!!! Thank you Frank and all your staff!! GREAT PLACE!!
