We recently spent one night at this B & B. The location is perfect as we were able to park our car and walk to everything. The building is charming and quaint. When we checked in the inn keeper reviewed all of the information concerning the inn. We were also given a choice of two breakfast entrees. The innkeeper stressed that we needed to be on time for our chosen breakfast time due to the number of guests. We definately got the impression that we should not be late. We stayed in the ocean breeze room and it was very small. There isn't a lot of space to sit or move around. I would not recommend this room for more than one night. We checked in around 3:15 and the staff was still cleaning rooms throughout the building. As others have mentioned the parking is for three cars at the most in the designated inn parking. We didn't have any trouble finding parking on the street.
The next morning we arrived five minutes early for breakfast so as not to be late. We waited and waited for about fifteen additonal minutes as breakfast was not ready. Once we were seated there were no coffee cups on the table. Eventually someone brought us cups and coffee. (excellent coffee). Breakfast was a HUGE dissapointment. I ordered a sweet breakfast that consisted of a beligian waffle, a few sliced strawberries and some lemon syrup. I could have made this at home in my waffle maker. My husband ordered the savory breakfast which was a slice of quiche on a bare plate. If was very dissapointing as we have stayed in numerous B&B's and always look forward to the breakfasts.
In our room there were several pieces of literature that I had not looked at until it was time for us to check out. I noticed a gratuities envelope on the desk. It basically asked you to place your gratuities in the envelope and deliver it to the innkeeper at checkout. I was a little puzzled and somewhat offended. This reminded me of what you typically do when you are on a cruise. Again, I have stayed in several inn's and had never had this experience. The gratuities were optional and not required but they felt as though they were required.
I do believe many people will enjoy this inn mainly because of it's location. I just feel it could be so much better.
