“Great dog-friendly location in OOB!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2012 via mobile

We spent 4 nights in cottage #4. The cottage was steps from the beach and just far enough down east grand ave to be away from the noise and traffic. Service was excellent! Booking by phone was quick and easy. They are truly dog friendly - we werent asked about breed or size and we didnt have to pay any extra fees.

We arrived at 6pm and found a note on the reception door welcoming us and telling us that our cottage was open and the keys were inside. Way easier than having to call and wait for somone to arrive or going somewhere else to get keys! The next day when i went to check in I asked if we could get a tea kettle as our cottage had a coffee maker and an expreso machine. Turns out they didnt have one on hand so they went and bought one for us! Service doesnt get better than that!

The bbq and picnic table were very handy as were the chairs on the porch. Cottage was clean. Wifi worked fine. There was a hodge podge of diahes and cutlery but we had everything we needed.

We would definitely stay here again!

I never experienced staying at the cottages with the previous owners but have had the pleasure of staying here for a few months and absolutely love it here. I have personally witnessed the many, many improvements the owners have made and they have built a very friendly and welcoming community here in OOB. Having stayed at many other hotels/motels here in OOB, I can say that Little Miss Cottages are my favorite. Just feet from the beach and very close to the downtown festivities, Little Miss Cottages are a great place to stay or vacation, whatever your need may be.

Room Tip: All rooms have been updated and they have offerings for small or large groups.

After having a horrific experience at another hotel, we found a vacancy at Little Miss Cottages. The rooms were quaint and very clean. The décor matched the lovely wood accents in the cottages, giving it a homey feel. The staff was very accommodating, turning the air conditioner on as we were in the process of checking in and advising us on local eateries. Amenities included a cute little deck overlooking East Grand Avenue and a picnic area in the back with grills and tables. The grounds were well maintained, with rose bushes and flowers around each of the cottages. We look forward to staying there again when we go back in October.

I stayed in a cottage as a winter rental. Absolutely loved the location,a very short walk to the beach, sunrise in my window and perfect for me for a time. Staff was less than hospitable ~ very disappointed in wifi availability, lack of "essentials" as it is advertised as all you need to bring is linens and towels for winter rentals. I had no curtains, a broken coffee maker, very few utensils, old, chipped dishes, one small pot to cook in, and no baking dishes. And if you used the stove/oven the smoke/ fire alarm always went off. The owners never went out of their way to speak or make you feel welcome although they enjoyed what I feel is a hefty amount of rent for what was provided. Disappointed to say the least.

This small group of cottages was sold to new owners and they claimed that the rate increase from $800 to $1400 for a cottage was due to all the great improvements. One window air conditioner, a TV and WiFi that hardly ever works does not warrant the price increase. The cottages remain with the same furniture and decor which you didn't mind when it was a cheap beach cottage. For the price of a two bedroom cottage - we paid $1,800 plus tax you would expect some housekeeping services. We had to go ask for new towels after 4 days of staying here. The bedspreads are dingy and stained and there is hardly enough TP or other household products to warrant the supposed improvements. We complained about the lack of WiFi availability about every other day as it was hardly ever available. Due to the new owners renting the main house, parking was difficult to accommodate all the cars. The place actually had many nights were no one was in the different cottages which was unheard of in prior years. We wanted to use their laundry room but that was broken too! They advertise gas grills but there isn't enough for every cottage so we had to wait and take one from another cottage. I couldn't even tell you the names of the new owners as they certainly didn't go out of their way to make us feel welcomed. There was definite work going on such as painting while we were here but was being done in a sloppy manner. I really was disappointed that the place had not improved like they advertised and I certainly won't be coming back. Anyone who had stayed here before these new owners will surely be disappointed. Friendship Motor Lodge which is right next door is a much better deal for the money!
