Went with my friend. Loved it! I will definately be going there again. Would recommend to any friend or family member. Quaint and cute and very close to the beach. You can smell the ocean air. We loved it!

The room was very clean with a comfortable pillow top bed. Price was better than three other motels we have stayed in previously. Owners were constantly checking to see if everything was satisfactory. There was no daily maid service, but used towels or linens were replaced whenever you placed them outside the room. Very quiet location. A pleasant stay.

Shelli (owner, manager of property) is the absolute best. So welcoming and warm. Makes you feel like family. Not sure whether she likes the dogs better than the guests though (lol). I rented one of the large cottages with my two dogs and a couple of friends. Accommodations were just right for our little group. Despite being a dog friendly...

My wife and I stayed at Drakes Island Resort for 6 nights. It was our first time bringing our dog with us, and our first time at the Drakes Island Resort. From the moment you arrive, Shelli and Bob treat you like family. Great place all around. We had an excellent time and can't wait to go back.
