What a beautiful property. Staff was very nice. Location was perfect for a walk on the beach, then a walk to dinner. Having a bar and breakfast available too was an added bonus. Too bad we had to check out early to try and beat the bad weather as we drove home. By far the nicest property I've stayed at. Can't wait to come back and enjoy all that the Inn at the Pier has to offer.

This hotel was great because we were within walking distance of everything. There is a restaurant right in the lobby area and the mimosas are great. We met the bartender Scott who made us feel right at home. Great guy! We will be back soon. 😊

Hotel is in great area just off the beach. Staff is friendly, helpful and patient. Some things (restaurant, rooftop pool) aren’t back in pre-pandemic operation but the hotel is still a nice, classy place to stay in tourist area.

The ocean view rooms have a balcony with a very nice view to the ocean, although there is little privacy between adjacent balconies. Hotel is kid-friendly and has easy 1 minute walk to the pier. There is free wifi and paid wifi. Free wifi is alright for casual web browsing. Since we stayed for 4 nights, housekeeping is free, else need to pay! Staff should have notified housekeeping staff to service our room, but they had not, so I had to call and ask for my room to be cleaned! The cleaning staff were professional and once notified did a quick, clean job! I had booked a 2 queens-bed room,but it appears they fixed be with a 2 double-bed room.I must admit I realized it late and did not bother to bring it to their attention of the staff!

Paid extra for ocean view and it was a view of the parking lot with rude, obnoxious people.

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.
