Loved how close it was to the beach. It was quite and clean. Like a mom and pop setting had everything I needed to relax and all the kitchen stuff. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great access to beach walking distance to eating and tram ride .

We are so thrilled that you loved your visit. We are indeed like a 1950's style beach inn; an antique hotel sitting right on a gorgeous and expansive beach. We are so lucky to have this unbelievable location. It was a pleasure having you and I hope we have you back soon! Best, Alex Cass-General Manager

The hotel manager was rude when we questioned our “room change”. There was not covid precautions as stated (24 hrs between each stay). There is no maid service. It’s not a “quaint hotel” as some of the reviews say.

I am so sorry that you were left with this impression! We absolutely have maid service, but due to COVID-19, and as stated on your registration sheet, it is done upon request so that guests can have the option of not having staff in their room exposing guests/staff to any risks. We are a clean, well appointed, old-fashioned beach inn that has been here since 1950, and I have never received feedback from any guest ever that said that the team was not friendly. Please give me a call so that I can get more information from you. We always welcome any and all feedback.
