Our room had recently been remodeled and had a very pleasant color and décor reminding me of a classic beach cottage style that was homey and relaxing. The hotel has complimentary...

The rooms are newly renovated, the beds are super comfy. The room is set up for at least a week long stay with a mini kitchen appliance area. Great customer service, we were stuck in traffic and the staff was very accommodating. This hotel has amazing beachfront views!!

I've been coming here for years and always enjoy the family who own and run this Inn. They have just completely renovated the rooms and repainted the exterior. It's like new and the location can't be beat.

Very large clean rooms . Very friendly and family owned. Love the coffee maker and fridge in the room. We love to sit on the balcony and watch the Promenade. We can hear the ocean. There's also a well maintained pool. My husband and I have stayed there for at least ten years during the Promenade Art Show.
