I love the uniqueness, charm and location of this inn. Our room was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I love that it’s dog friendly and there is a designated area for the dogs to go potty that’s close to the rooms but not close enough to disturb others. The only problem are the thin walls. You hear EVERY foot step, door close and conversation.

We had no hot water in the shower/room. Originally, I was happy since the room had a kitchen and dining area but really unhappy when we couldn't shower before check out. I was told there was a "trick." Ummm, I'm not staying at my aunt's house for free, if I'm paying, there shouldn't be a trick to turn on the hot water.

The location is great. Also the ocean views were very nice. Mostly the problem was the heating was not adequate. We had room 31 and I slept with my hat, scarf, gloves, socks, sweatsuit and the wall heater turned up to 90, but if it was blowing 68 I’d be surprised. The furniture & carpet was old and the room had a strange odor. The bathroom was clean and the bed was okay, but overall the room was dirty. I’ll never go back to this hotel. I can’t believe it’s a 4 star!
