We stayed for two nights in early March, the hotel is convenient if, like us, you want to walk and along the beach at the State Park, just walk out the door and up less then a block. The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly, but there were some cosmetic things that show that

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We truly apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with your stay. We will take your notes and try to rearrange the room to be more convenient for future guests. We will also address the issues in the restroom, general room, and breakfast. We do not advertise an ocean view, but we will double check and make sure that our guests are more aware of that. Once again, thank you for your feedback, this definitely helps us bring our hotel to its full potential.

This is a budget hotel trying to be more. Rooms are worn and need both TLC and cleaning. The hotel has a general feeling of being run down. Breakfast was continental. Overall, rate was high for what was delivered.

Hello! Is the walk to the beach an easy one from your hotel? Thanks!
Yes it is! It is a short 5 minute walk to the beach from our hotel. As this lovely guest mentioned, in one direction there is a cliff. But in the other direction, you can walk down to the shore very easily. There are stairs to walk down and benches that you can sit on to watch the sunset!

"Upper rooms are quieter"
"Rooms to the Ocean if you like to hear the waves."
"second floor, north end, on ocean side."
"Stayed in a special needs room, it was spacious and nicely outfitted. It worked well for me as a non-special needs person."
"Second-floor ocean-facing rooms are best."
