Friendly staff/owners, very helpful and accommodating. Rooms are nicely updated. The complimentary breakfast was fresh and inviting. The beach was only a block away! Lots of stuff to see and do in this great beach town.

Very nice rooms with hardwood floors and comfortable beds. Rooms have very modern AC/heat units with remotes and flat screen TV's. Super quiet location near the beach. Family owned and operated. Perfect home away from home and reasonably priced.

We had a quick 1 night stay and could not be more pleased with our experience. Greg and Jen treat their guests as if you were staying at their home. We could not have been more pleased with our experience.

I've stayed now in 3 different rooms, all of them consistently immaculate and comfortable (although I have my favorite!). Personally I like the mix of style, with the mid century outside exterior with the modern comfort interior.

Unfortunately, we didn't have a chance to spend our night at this hotel due to personal issues, but personnel was really kind and great in resolving the problem! I'm absolutely sure that they are great at everything else.
