Fabulous 8.8 From 317 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Location is very good BUT...
The place is clean and comfortable. You will pay a high price for the location (a couple of minutes from the beach) and not the tiny room with a split sink and toilette that we got ($288/day). The tiny lobby/breakfast area has a weird distribution and when you are seated, the manager seats (in a classroom style) across of you, facing the tables (giving a feeling of being observed). Also, feels like they do not like to give small water bottles away. If you ask for 'too many' (2+) they seem to drag themselves to satisfy the request. Ridiculous...

Beach cottage
A block from beach, residential quiet area, beautiful gardens and antique furniture, renovated Victorian cottages so rooms are cozy

Nice stay
Our room was large, and simple. It had windows that open, which always makes hotel rooms better. We were able to walk everywhere we needed to go.

Absolutely beautiful place and location.

Very Good 8.0
It was a very nice/charming property and a great location for walking - along the shore (1 block) or a healthy (1 mile) walk to town center. The staff member we interacted with was very friendly and helpful (apologies, but I don't recall her name). The only downsides were that the bed was a tad soft (can't be helped, since that's a personal preference) and there were a couple of bright outside lights that stayed on all night and light streamed into room.
