8.0 Great
Pros:Nice location close to the water
Cons:Beds were a bit uncomfortable, and were fulls instead of queens
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Nice setting
Cons:Everything was fine
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Close to the beach, nice rooms, and not a lot of people.
Cons:Bath tub drain was slow.
8.2 Great
Pros:The room was updated and clean. The inn is located in a central location on the island so we didn't have a far drive to places on either end of the island. It was also nice being on the water. Not much shells on this access spot; would recommend Bowmans beach for that. There was lots of parking so did not have any issues finding a space.
Cons:Although updated with granite countertops, the bathroom was tiny and hard to maneuver in; and I am a petite woman. It would have been nice if beach chairs and umbrellas were included like most of the other hotels.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:The room was well appointed, very clean and updated. Had everything we needed, was like an efficiency apartment. Location across the street from the beach was great. Though it was too far from downtown for my wife to walk, she has very bad knees.
Cons:Bed was very uncomfortable. Woke up with very sore and stiff back. When we checked out the front desk said the room had a brand new mattress. I doubt that. The person said we should have said something earlier, they would've gotten us another mattress. I had no idea they would do that.
