We originally planned to stay in one of the deluxe rooms after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. When we arrived, we went ahead and upgraded to the Penthouse Suite ($189/night plus taxes). There was a sign at the counter that said the inn did not rent to people under 25, but Ben, the innkeeper, was a very nice gentleman and let us through anyway. Covered parking is also underneath the inn.
Once we got to our room, we were pleasantly surprised. The entrance was actually a door in the staircase on the 2nd floor. Turn the key and you walk up a flight of stairs to your 3rd floor penthouse. The living area had a nice big sofa with a huge flat panel tv on the wall equipped with a dvd player, stereo system (played even in the bathroom) and mini fridge. We relaxed a lot in this area.The bar area contained champagne flutes and wine glasses. But upon close inspection, you could see lipstick smudges all over them. The view of the lighthouse from the balcony was the best in town. There was also a really cool telescope you could use.
The bedroom had a very soft, but comfortable king size bed. There is also a small flat panel tv that opens out of the dresser. Not much else to say about the bedroom. The bed was very comfortable and we slept with no problems.
Onto the bathroom. This is my favorite part of the whole suite. The entrance was covered by padded saloon style doors. All marble interior with a huge sink. The best part is the shower. Make sure you check out the picture. There are actually 2 showerheads in there! The shower is huge.
Overall, for a $20/night extra from the deluxe room, you get a lot more, but it might not be necessary. The inn is only about 50 yards to the Pier and Mallery Street in one direction and another 50 yards the other direction for public beach access.
