This is our third return trip to the "Den" and we have two Boston terriers with us! We have been made to feel right at home and our babies, Barnacle and Tugger, love the brick lined park right through the woods behind us! Reasonable and spotless! Just don't rent our favorite room on thanksgiving!

I reviewed a couple years ago, but since me and my fiance's return this past weekend I had to review again. Owners Joe and Rick updated not only their home (which is attached to the inn itself, making them super available if need be), but also most of the rooms (which were already cozy to begin with). This time we...

If you are expecting expensive furniture, a gourmet breakfast, fancy linens, high end toiletries, you should probably choose a different property. At twice the price! BUT. For the best location, everything you need, parking mid town, nice owner, and an unbelievable price.....(I never start with price. it is about the overall value to me) and a lot of other features,...

A lovey little weekend get away. Rick and joe were so accommodating. The fall colors were awesome and it was not busy at all. Reasonable rates, clean and ready room, lovey hospitality. I'd stay again in a heartbeat.

Very very nice small hotel. Rick and Joe the owners are very hospitable. I stayed in a 5 star resort in Montauk NY last week and the Dolphin Den is by far a better place to call home for three nights. Close to town....an easy walk to all the great shops and restaurants. If you get a chance make Dolphin...

This was a great area to stay and a plus that the dogs could come too. I didn't realize there was complimentary toiletries as I didn't bring shampoo since most places have little bottles. There was none in the room so didn't even think to ask. The park behind was great for the dogs and most of the restaurants allowed...

I am so impressed with The Dolphin Den that I can't stop recommending it to friend's who own dogs. I have stayed in many hotels that state they are dog friendly, then go on to say, "Please don't leave your dogs unattended." What??? That is NOT dog friendly. I was so impressed when Rick told us that we can go...

Excellent place to stay especially if you have a dog. Very clean, cozy, and most of all very quiet. Your host will bend backwards to make sure you have everything you need. Close to all restaurants, beach, and shops. Love it!!!
