We stay at the Whitson every summer and think its a great value. A block from the beach and two blocks from the center of town. The rooms on the top foor all have their own bath and a mini fridge as well as individual air conditioning units. The rooms are clean, just dated. The kids love waking up and walking to the beach in their PJs. Lingo's Market is just a block over so it great to grab fresh made bagels and sit on the wrap-around porch to munch on breakfast. And, when it rains, its fun to sit on the porch and watch everyone racing to escape as we settle in after our short walk from the beach.

Everything is in walking distance, The staff provide a parking pass so you can park on the street the entire time you are there. We often never move the car because we just walk everywhere. One tip, if you do arrive on Friday and have to park several blocks away, remember that check out time on Saturdays is around 10 -11 so parking spots open up then.

Its a no frills kind of place - no TV or radio but with computers and iPods our kids have what they need to entertain themselves. I'd rather have a fabulous dinner at the Cultured Pearl than stay at a fancier place where I spend so little time in the room. When the kids are asleep, we hang out on the porch with glass of wine. We've met teachers and lawyers and small business owners who just love the homey atmosphere - lots of regulars.

Room Tip: Rooms 1, 2 and 3 are the best as they are on the top floor and have their own bath.

This is a great hotel, 2 blocks to the beach, clean and comfy. I recommend this hotel if you are a couple looking to get away for a long weekend. Please note that many of the less expensive rooms share a bathroom. My husband and I have never had an issue doing this but if you prefer not to share, the hotel has other rooms with bathrooms right in the room. Parking has a little bit to be desired unless you get lucky, plan on not moving your vehicle the entire stay and you'll be fine. There are no TV's in the rooms and no swimming pool so I would rethink staying here if you have school age children that need those amenities on vacation.
