The rooms were very nostalgic a 1940's feeling and clean. The owners are very nice and helpful. Staff went over and beyond of helping. Joe the owner is very helpful and very nice. I didn't get a chance to meet his sister but they were all very nice. It is close to anything and everything to do you can even walk 2 miles to the beach. I did find out there were no taxis and learned for the first time how take a Uber everywhere while my husband was picking up a old car. The parking lot is big. We were hauling a trailer to pick up a old car and there was plenty of room for us to park. The breakfast was really good fresh bake goods, cereal and other little things.. The restaurant is a must when there food is great and services is top of the line. I had chicken and my husband had lobster and clam chowder. If you want a small town homie fell stay here.

Been going to Old Salt since it was at the beach back in the 1990's. Last few times we have been the service has been very, very slow. Food has been tasty as usual but tonight we went with another couple and 3 out of 4 dinners were not satisfactory. 2 dinners were cold ( baked haddock w/ potatoe and beans and the steak tips were very under cooked for order. Very disappointed.

One of the few venues where the people just know how to be the best the can be in hospitality. Despite the CoVid set backs, a sudden winter storm blast and unexpected closure of the restaurant, the staff went above and beyond to communicate and make things happen in the best form possible. Kudos to Christian for prepping and serving a great meal and to Samantha who runs this venue like it is her own and regarding each patron like "royalty". One of the few occasions that all the positive things that have been said about it, are more than true and exceeding all expectations.

We stayed overnight the end of October 2020. We found a traditional old style hotel that was well kept and clean. It was extremely affordable and had a nice "To Go" breakfast. The highlight was the attached "Old Salt Tavern". We thoroughly enjoyed the service of bartender Jane and the conversation of the local bar patrons.

This is a must-see restaurant and experience. The entire place is dripping with history. The staff is incredible and the food truly great. I’d never been in before, but I will return soon. Try the clams and the desserts are to die for.
