I reviewed this hotel online and was a little skeptical at first, when I arrived I had an oceanview room on the second floor (top floor). This hotel is very quaint and is so comfortable! The room amenities were fantastic! There's was even a little fake fireplace, desk, table, couch, mini-fridge with apple slices and a breakfast quesadilla, very comfortable white linen robes and the bed... well the bed was extremely comfortable.
The view was priceless, a very quiet area right on the pier and the best location. I walked all over Sidney and had dinner a long the pier at a local pub which was fantastic. Less than a one minute walk behind the hotel is the boardwalk a long the pier, they have a small beach called "Glass Beach". Many years ago there was a cannery above the beach and somehow jars from the cannery got swept out to sea. The beach is filled with beach glass, for those of you who aren't familiar with beach glass it's glass that has been weathered by the sea and is soft around the edges. Therefore the beach is safe for children and your pets to enjoy.
There is a nice grocery store directly across the street, liquor store on the next building and everything else you want close by. For being a 40+ year old inn & spa it certainly has been maintained magificently.
