We came for two nights from NYC in January via Amtrak. Felt like we were away for a week. The hotel is grand - I’m usually into super modern but I appreciated the beauty of the place. The manager, Daniel, was so professional and welcome. We got a terrific ocean-front upgrade as

This place has the most unbelievable view of the ocean, nice trails to the beach, and places to sit on the porch to take the view in if you don't want to walk down to the beach. Very scenic and peaceful. In the middle of a neighborhood. Service and food were excellent.

Yes I feel that the many times I have stayed here this is a very safe hotel. You can give your tween some independence without worry. There is a movie theater and candy store and pool. As long as you trust your tween to act politely by themselves then you are in for a great vaca!!! Enjoy :)

First of all I apologize on the delay. Yes they are pet friendly- I bring my 15 lb maltipoo. They pamper him with dog treats, fluffy oversized bed & dog bowls. After taking my dog several times for walks on the beach I realized I forgot his shampoo. Without hesitation the staff went into town and located the kind of shampoo I use , made the purchase and delivered to the room in a flash. The staff was so pet friendly they learned his name and he was welcomed like a family member .

There is an elevator; however, the front of the building is a circular driveway with valet parking for guests and a historically significant stairway (faithful to original design). In the area along the main road, Bay Street, there are many great eateries, restaurants, the Merry Go Round and wonderful shops including Westerly/Brooklyn artist Christina Stankard's Jewelry shop which carries a delightful Array of original merchandise from many artists including hats, scarfs, candles and lovely handmade jewelry. Spend the day wandering along the great beach or watch the sun go down from the dunes. A gem of New England shoreline within easy driving distance.
