Every now and then you find a hidden gem, a place where you know you will have to come back. seaside Inn and Cottages is just that place. While not pretentious in any way, staying there was just a joy. The person who greeted us at the front desk was as friendly as can be and full of great recommendations. The location was great too.
Our room was everything you could want a beach motel to be and more. It was clean as a whistle, had an area to sit outside with glass sliding doors out to the patio, a refrigerator, places to sit in the room too and a comfortable bed. YES! We were so happy to get settled in. We were very happy.
The location is great. The hotel in on the beach, albeit set back by a big grassy lawn. The beach was very nice and sandy. People on the beach were friendly. It was a wonderful day for a walk on the beach. We walked to town too.
The next morning we went to breakfast. We did not know the room came with breakfast so it was a pleasant surprise. Breakfast was great with fresh baked muffins, homemade oatmeal, and lots of other things too. The selection was excellent and everything was tasty too.
We will go back and not just because we loved the place. The beach can be used by dogs before 9:00 AM and after 5:00 PM. Seaside Inn and Cottages permits dogs in the cottages. In the morning and in the evening the beach has lots of dogs playing. If you love animals it is a joy to watch. Next time we hope to bring our dogs on vacation too.
We love this place.
