The website shows off the Inn at its best and it's a bit less elegant than the website suggests. We walked from the Amtrak station to the Inn but I wouldn't recommend it if you have a lot of luggage. We were also lucky with good weather.
The Inn has a definite dated feel to it though the rooms appear to have been re-decorated in an unusual theme. We had a slight issue with the drawers in our dresser as they wouldn't easily stay shut because of an uneven floor. A coat hanger under the front solved that.
Large flat screen TV with many ways to connect other devices.
I would say this is about a 3 star Inn but would gladly stay again. It is walking distance to the beach, pier and wharf. Many restaurants nearby. Not being right on the beach there is a lot less traffic noise and we had a very quiet stay. Had a small balcony too.
For a room with a king bed it was $114 per night. This is off season of course but comparing others in the same area this was very competitive.
The lady who was at the desk was very accommodating and polite. They have free wireless internet, which worked very well, a pool which was warm, a jacuzzi which was only warm and a sauna which we didn't use.
It is no where near as elegant as others but hard to beat with all they give you.
