Do not stay here! This place is WAY overpriced for the poor quality accommodations that exist at this "inn". I classify this place as a tourist trap.
We checked in and checked out the same day we saw our room and sought accommodations elsewhere, in a nicer hotel for one third of the rate Seacrest charged. The internet web page portrays the inn as a cute bed and breakfast "romantic getaway", and that is simply not true.
-The room was extremely small.
-No view, bad location.
-Tile floors with no rugs or carpet.
-No heat (in the winter with tile floors this is a bad combination.)
-No shower curtain, with a clogged misfiring showerhead that sprayed more water on the cold tile floor than on us.
-Dingy, small bath towels.
-Worn, aged furniture.
Also, beware of the reservation policy. I have never had a hotel charge my card for the full amount of the stay, 3 weeks prior to arriving at the hotel.
Save the hassle, ignore all the ads, and do not even bother calling. There are MUCH nicer accommodations for less money available on the island.
