We stayed in a Deluxe Waterfront suite Oct 8-15. Very nice size room with kitchenette which came in very handy. It was nice to sit out on the balcony with coffee enjoying the morning sun and the great views. The room was very well kept and clean and the staff were welcoming and very friendly. The location is ideal with... More

When I checked in, they first put me in a dingy room with no view although I had booked a room with waterfront view. I was able to get another room but quickly found out that "waterfront view" actually means "street view with waterfront behind", and lots of people walking past the tiny patio with dirty furniture. Breakfast was nothing... More

Stayed one night. Room was smaller, but nicely done. Continental breakfast included. Friendly and helpful front desk staff. Easy walk thru town and onto the beach. Free wifi and parking. Would definitely stay at this small hotel again.

Older Inn with a great location, clean rooms, and great staff. We had a room with a view of the bay, a deck and chairs and a comfortable bed. Reasonable rates, and a breakfast bar. Parking on site but no elevator.

When we phoned the hotel just after checking out, the front desk said they could do nothing until Monday to adjust the rate. On... More

We stayed overnight at the Waterfront Inn in order to return a rental car and catch a morning flight at the airport. The Inn was reasonably priced online. The room was clean and in good repair. We found the bed comfortable. Even though we were on the street side, it was quiet, not much street noise. The location was very... More

Friendly staff, continental breakfast, clean, quiet room. This hotel is right on the ocean, plenty of places to walk, ocean activities available close by, abundance of restaurants, stores, and thrift stores to walk to. Sidney is a great place to come for a weekend.

We were so glad we stayed here. As we went late the only room available with a view room was the Deluxe King Suite with Sea View so we thought OK and took it. Then we walked over to the other building and walked through an office tower over to our room which we loved. This is one of the... More

This hotel gave us way more bang for our buck when Compared to other places. We had a waterfront view, with a beautiful balcony. Clean rooms, outdated compared to newer hotels, but we enjoyed our stay.
