My family and 2 of my kids friends stayed at the "beach house" so there was a total of 6. The beach house is a cute little bungalow with 2 bedrooms and large living area with 2 futons and a gas fireplace. It has a nicely stocked full kitchen and a great deck with a gas grill. The house was...

We stayed in a spacious corner room, number three. The beds are clean and firm, and the fully appointed kitchen has every basic kitchen equipment. And even though the unit was...

This was our third trip and stay. In the past have rented the Penthouse (view had changed last time due to a tall house built in the view, but was still amazing). This visit we had a regular room with a kitchen and separate bedroom. The host was wonderful and helpful as always. Although a bit older the room was...

The Penthouse at the Sand Dollar Inn is lovely. Very large space, with tons of windows so that you can see the ocean every minute. The Penthouse was well furnished and had most things you need to make simple meals. Plenty of towels and nice comfy bed. Staff is very friendly. No daily maid service. Room is on the 3rd...

I really like this hotel, and have stayed here a number of times. The owners are very nice and I enjoy the informality. This is not a fussy hotel, but it is a great value with clean nice rooms. It is a 5-10 minute walk to the beach, so you can go for multiple trips. Kitchen was well stocked and...

Wow, how often can you find a cozy home away from home. The Razor Clam Cottage one of three, is just that. I was so pleased with the staff and how welcomed we were to the Sand Dollar Inn.

We have been coming to the Sand Dollar Inn at least twice a year since 2001. We stay at the main inn, which has 8 rooms and is always very clean, cozy and quiet. There is a patio in the back for bbq and it is less than a block to the beach. The staff is polite and helpful. The...

We have stayed here before and always enjoy the suite which is at the top of the building. It is one long room with windows facing out toward the ocean, the comforts of home with a nice kitchen, living room, and wonderful bedroom with bath. Inexpensive! The Inn also has two floors with different configurations of rooms and those are...

I immediately fell in love with this inn. There is no easier way to win my heart than with an immaculate bedroom and bathroom. Every inch of the room was a spotless delight. The walls are concrete but merrily painted in blue, and the furniture, while a bit heavy on the kitschy sea theme is comfortable and in good shape....
