Great staff
The overall experience was great. Jay, the general manager for the hotel, was absolutely awesome! One girl was on her first day and she was great, very professional. It's about a 5-10 minute walk from the beach which was perfect. Great place to stay!!

Renovation needed
The building has definite Victorian charm but in need of maintenance . The mattress we had was worn, definite hole and appeared to be 2twins pushed together. The towels were old , rough and small. The front grounds were unmaintained, many weeds. The backgrounds were beautiful . The breakfast was good and the employees we had contact with were very pleasant. The room we were assigned had a claw foot tub that appeared dirty and when I tried to step out the tub is not secured and started to tip... very unnerving. When we first entered our room I did go down stairs to ask if we could check out a different room ... it appeared there were vacant rooms. But the man in charge said there was nothing else( Tuesday night) so we just made the best of the situation. We really feel given tender love and attention this could once again be a great property. It is our understanding they are about to close for A major renovation - until then you might want to consider another property or be specific about which room you are assigned. Other guests we spoke with said they had better accomendations than we did .

What a beauty!
This place was amazing. It reminded me of a European feudal manor house. It has the beauty, mystery, elegance and secret passageways and halls. The staff was very friendly and breakfast was one of the best hotel meals offered. This is definitely a place I recommend.

Loved the Old World Charm!
The English Inn is a beautiful older Inn. We had a Grand Suite with a King bed and claw foot tub. The room was large and accommodated three of us. The staff was amazing and very funny. It is located about 3 miles from downtown. The balconies will need to be repaired as the wood is showing signs of deteriorating. The lobby is classic. My only recommendation is to have the continental breakfast could be expanded. The croissants were delicious. We loved our stay and would recommend it to all.
