Had a great stay at the Inn at the Pier. The balcony ocean view was perfect. Sitting out and enjoying the sunset was great. It is mostly sheltered from the wind so it was great sitting on the balcony. I loved that it is centrally located and we walked to all our restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.

I liked the rooms and the rooftop bar area. Blonde, the restaurant downstairs can use some additional training for the greeting and wait staff. Could also be how it’s set up. Could have a more comprehensive menu as well but nothing bad.

paid for ocean, got trash paid for amenities, couldn’t use them. Room was unimpressive. Small, Dirty, carpet tiles were coming up, screen door had rips in it by the handle and was difficult to open. Mirror on wall filthy. Patio furniture rusty. was rusted. Called frontndesk and said this isn’t ocean view room and they said I paid for a partial ocean view. I said how much is this room and they said 309 plus taxes. I said my receipt shows 399 plus taxes $461.58. They said there wasn’t anything they could do. I said the only view we have is trash and only way to see ocean is to lean over the railing. They offered to move us to a first floor ocean view, very nice all the way through it. First floor ocean views are of parking lot with loud cars in and out the entire time. This room had same issues as third....unimpressed. Oh, something else I forgot to mention. We were looking forward to spending a nice evening at the rooftop bar and lounge. Ha... it was closed due to a wedding party as were the hot tub and pool. Front desk said we could use their hot tub and pool at a sister property if we wanted to drive. Should have warned guest at booking of these closures. For the money, plenty of other options with better rooms and views.
