The heater was hard to regulate as it got hot and then chilly but other than that the room was renovated and the bed was comfortable..very nice boutique...

The location is outstanding with views of the ocean and a lovely boardwalk along the shore. Tea/coffee/breakfast shop located just outside. My first room was larger, with table and chairs, comfortable bed, large bathroom. But the heat never got over 66 so I was moved to a fireplace room, which was substantially smaller but no less well appointed with local...

Utility noise is unacceptable! Noisy place!!!! Didn't sleep at all!!! Would have slept better in the car at a truck stop. Nice location, friendly staff, recently renovated...way too noisy...fans, fridge, heat and god knows what else. If you would like a good night sleep stay somewhere else. Bring ear plugs.

Hotel is really cute and in a pretty beautiful location. Plenty of local stores and eateries around town. We visited in February so there isn't much going on but it looks like a great location for a summer vacation. The hotel staff is very accommodating and super nice. I had an issue with the hair dryer in our room and...

When I arrived, it was just at dusk and so the lights of this quaint maritime town were just starting to glow. Since the traffic on Thames Street was very light, it was easy find the Inn without worrying about missing it and having to fight congestion to turn back and look again. The sign was clear, and I was...

My wife and I stayed at this inn for one night after a family event nearby. Very friendly staff, very clean and close to local restaurants. Parking an issue in cold or inclement weather in that you have to go down the street to another lot to park overnight. Other than parking, we would definitely stay there again if in...

This was a great place to stay. It was very clean and quiet. It is located close to a couple of great restaurants and bars. Loved that you could walk out and see the bay. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Some of the pictures of this hotel on TA appear to have been taken before the hotel was remodeled. Our room was lovely, with cream and navy walls, dark modern furniture, and a nautical motif. It was comfortable, quiet, and spotless, with a window overlooking the harbor. The hotel is in walking distance of many shops and restaurants in this...

We stayed here over the weekend to attend a nearby wedding and were really quite pleased by this hotel. The location can't be beat, and although the room (a standard king) was a bit snug, the mattress was good and the room itself nicely appointed -- having a room safe is a big plus. I have no idea why there...
