Room needs to be updated , carpet was super filthy in some areas it look like it was mud and there was holes on the wall. The tub and toilet were dirty too. I was expecting a better room like the ones they show on the website, I wouldn’t stay here again.

I’ve stayed at this Inn many times since discovering it, quite by accident, 20 years ago. Close enough to drive to from home for that quick weekend getaway. Book the garden/ocean rooms, worth the price to hear the ocean and having the luxury to stroll through the garden with a
