My boyfriend and I stayed at The Edgewater in February 2010 for valentine's day weekend. I thought it would be crowded, but it wasn't at all. Upon arriving, the owner was very nice and greeted us kindly. She showed us to our room and explained to the different types of amenities and how to enter the building after hours. It's not your typical hotel I guess, this place is privately owned and the building entrance and hallway seem like apartments, until you enter your room and it seems like a standard hotel room. It's very updated with current furniture, flat screen tv. There is a fountain outside the window that shuts off upon request to owner. In the morning, there are danishes, juice and coffee in the communal kitchen for everyone to share. I booked this hotel because it was one of the inexpensive yet nice hotels in the area. I would stay here again and maybe splurge a lil more and stay in an oceanfront suite. The rooms are beautiful and the location is right on the main street facing the ocean.
