Very friendly helpful staff. Quite, clean, very nice. Good value for cost per day. The staff couldnt do enough to help me find my way around having never been in the area before. Maps, maps, and directions were given to me. Even suggestions on interresting places to visit while in town.

I've stayed at other Americinn's as well and haven't been disappointed yet.

Our good experience started with our check-in. Everyone was very friendly and willing to go the extra mile to ensure that we were happy. They also had free cookies out at the front desk so my kids were happy as well! Another bonus is that they had coffee and many varieties of herbal tea available throughout the day in the lobby. It's rare for hotels to have a lot of caffeine free herbal teas available, so I was very happy to see the wide variety that they had. Sometimes it really is the little things.

Rooms were adequate size and clean. I loved that we were able to actually open the windows to get fresh air, something that can be surprisingly hard to find at hotels sometimes.

Breakfast had a good variety of food, everyone found something to eat.

The pool area was pretty dark at night so it may have felt colder than it actually was, but other than that, the pool was fine.

We were able to walk to the beach because there was a walkway over the busy street about a half mile down from the hotel.

The only negative about our stay is something that is totally outside of the hotel's control, but hopefully the town will hear enough complaints to finally do something about it. It was impossible to make a left turn onto 31 at any point during the day--traffic was just that horrible. At points we couldn't even get out of the parking lot at all, let alone take a left turn.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled with family

The room was clean but dark paint on walls and dark bedspread made the room gloomy. Hall was not air conditioned and rather gloomy as well. A couple of skylights would be a good addition. Located on a very fast busy 2 lane road right next to Pirates Cove including Go Carts etc. Kids/noise until 10PM. All good if you have kids to entertain . Personally will look elsewhere next trip due to price and condition .

I am sorry to see your review of our hotel from your recent stay and that you were unhappy. The hotel was remodeled in spring of 2013 and has all new furnishings, paint, carpet, etc. I’m sorry that you felt that it was a “gloomy” room. We have received many positive comments on the new furnishings and colors. I’m sorry that you were unhappy with them. The hotel is located on US 31 North – which is a state highway. There is a lot of traffic, however there is a sidewalk to move up and down the street and an overpass just down the street to avoid crossing the street if you wanted to go over to the bay. I’m sorry that you will look elsewhere next time but hopefully you will reconsider and we would be honored to welcome you back to the AmericInn. Our staff would be happy to provide you clean rooms, superior service and a smile.

I was worried when we first walked into the hotel because of the dark furnishings, carpet and hallways. However, we loved our room and stay here. Very clean, comfortable, and affordable for the area. Great breakfast and lobby area. Very satisfied.

Located directly to Pirate's Cove and Dairy Queen. Convenient location and plenty of parking. Rooms were quiet and the breakfast was plentiful. Good selection. Would highly recommend. The staff were courteous and very helpful.

Julie, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I’m glad that you found the hotel great and the location exactly what you were looking for. You can’t beat being next to DQ and Pirates Cove in my opinion! Lots to do just outside the hotel door! Thank you for “highly recommending” us and our service. I am so happy we were able to have you stay and hopefully we will see you again soon!

I initially booked this hotel because of the low price compared to other hotels in the area, so I had low expectations. However, the hotel was fantastic. Great lobby, good breakfast, huge comfortable room with an amazing jacuzzi tub. Close to the beach, downtown, and anywhere you want to go in TC.

A friend and I stayed 3 nights in a 2 Queen room and all was good. Arrival at front desk was pleasent. The room was spotless, easy to access all amenities and the referigerator was ice cold. Lots of choices at breakfast, hot and cold. Pool area was clean, clean rags to dry our motorcycles and restaurant reservations made for us. Great staff, no problems and I would stay here again.
