We have stayed here at this beautiful hotel on the ocean before. On this week long stay we met the owner, Brad!! (what an awesome man) Sunday he threw his 5th annual party with a band that played for 4 and a half hours, for free there was complimentary food and refreshments. That was such a nice way to start...

The rooms were hot due to the time of year, rooms needs new ceiling fans, however, the staff was more than accommodating in making our visit the best it can be. I would go back absolutely. The Parrot in the Office Bert (Roberta) was the best too.

This is not a place to stay if you want quiet or updated. The staff if fine the beach location is great. The decks are all common walk ways so people are constantly walking by your room. No a/c and leaving the slider open with so many people wasnt really comfortable. Old beds lots of noise. Exspensive

I should have known when they made us pay full price sight unseen in advance. No air conditioning. People had their doors open with fans going, clothes hanging out. No private balcony. Bugs stuck on lamp. On second floor. People above us walking back and forth can hear every single step

We have been coming for many years to this location. All of the rooms open out on the water side. The rooms are basic but clean. Some rooms with efficiencies. Nothing fancy, a little dated but clean and the location can not be beat! Right on a Long Beach. Hotel provides chairs for guest outside the rooms on the small...

Right on Long Beach. Fantastic amazing views. Beautiful sunrises! Loved the sounds of the waves and the gulls. Very friendly staff. BUT no elevator (3 floors for rooms but 4 down to beach) and no air conditioning-- serious drawbacks. Old family-style motel. Rooms very clean. Pet friendly. Great for beach for families with little kids.

If you are looking for opulence, look elsewhere. If you are interested in a friendly, homey, family oriented place without all that phoney beach glitz....this has the best location directly on the beach money can buy. Simple, clean room, friendly folks. Picture is from our hotel room porch. All rooms are oceanfront.

Great family friendly spot. Don't worry about your sandy feet and beach toys. If you want fancy, this isn't for you. But if you want to relax at a beautiful beach during the day and sleep to the sound of the waves at night, you've found the perfect spot. This is our 21st year and will be back again.

My grandson & I stayed here and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The room was spacious & clean. The views were fabulous! Right out our sliding glass door we stood out on the deck & enjoyed looking right onto the beach & out into the ocean. In full clear view was Thatcher Island with it's 2 lighthouses. Watching the sun rise...

We recently spent 2 nights in this comfortable old Inn. Our room on the 2nd floor had such amazing views of the beach,surfers and the water with two lighthouses on an island directly on front. The fridge in the room was great and we were able to eat our lunch and breakfast on the balcony while enjoying the view. It...
