We got a last minute room here when we decided we just had to go to the beach, amazingly on a Saturday in August when there was a triathlon event going on we got it for $100! The lady on the phone couldn't have been nicer. She went on about letting us know some of the rooms or bathrooms were... More

So the rooms are a bit dated, clean though and hats what matters. The rooms are close together and sometimes neighbors can be a bit loud. Close walk to the beach though, central location, and if you are looking to save some money this is the closest to the beach with this price tag. Enjoy your stay! Also BBQ outside... More

We had a great time at the Yellow Giraffe! Their prices are affordable for a family, and having a kitchen, pool, grills and a nice area to sit and eat is very hard to find. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. They have a great system for towels, etc, where you leave a basket with a list of things you... More

The GOOD is the location, a very short walk to the pier and beach at Old Orchard. Rite Aid across the street, sells just about everything you might need, including beer, wine and alcohol. The rates are very resonable, staff is layed back and friendly. I liked their system for obtaining new towels and other supplies, a basket with a... More
