We were looking for a place to stay and while going to have a drink at M.R. Ducks we saw there was an inn right there. We asked to view the room and the desk staff seemed surprised that we asked to. We found the room clean but very basic, which was fine. The room was bayside which was nice as it looked over the marina, however it was directly above the bar - M.R. Ducks which happened to have a band and we could hear everything in the room. We went back to desk and said thanks but no, and told them we thought the room would be much too loud considering it was right over the bar, but they assured us that the band would end at 8pm and when we asked what time the bar closed, we were told it quieted down fairly early - maybe 10pm. That was fine with us as we were planning on going out for some drinks ourselves and wouldn't be bothered by the bar's activities. Yes the band did stop, but the bar stayed open until the wee hours. We could hear everything including the bar music plus a couple of fights between people. We would fall asleep and then wake up to loud laughing, or fighting...this went on until 2:40 am. It was the most restless night.
Aside from that, the room was clean, but again basic. No shampoo, no hair dryer, towels were small, blankets had burn holes in them and the sheets were old, but clean, typical poly bed covers. Room had a small fridge, microwave and two burners for cooking. I never looked to see if there were pots or plates. Location was fairly good as it was a few blocks from the boardwalk and activities. I don't think that we'll stay again as we like our sleep and we felt we were lied to about the noise. I could see this as a good spot for those wanting to go fishing as its next to the marina, but its not a relaxing place at all. If you decide to go - ask for a room that is not bayside.
