“Good place right on the beach!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Beach House Inn is in a great position right on the beach. In the morning and evening, It was lovely to be able to walk out the room straight onto the wooden walkway over the dunes and onto the beach in seconds. We had a two room suite on the ground floor which provided plenty of room for 4 adults. The main room had a double bed, bathroom, kitchen and sitting area and access to the balcony. There is a separate bedroom with double bed through an adjoining door and had its own bathroom, but this room also had its own access to outside. Room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable.

Can recommend eating at Gibby''s. Eat there two nights and delicious food was served both nights. The crab cakes and Mahi Mahi were very good. Crab cakes were about 17/18 dollars, cheaper than we saw anywhere else!

Room Tip: Better view from 2nd floor, and probably quieter than ground floor as you will not hear anyone walki...

I have been staying at this place at least once a year for almost 10 years. It's a great little place. View of the ocean is best from the 2nd Floor rooms. Rooms have been kept up nicely. They have everything you need. The common porch/deck area is awesome. The balconies are nice and the rocking chairs are a nice touch also on the side view rooms. You are in walking distance to restuarants (Check out the Sea Witch) and the broadwalk.

I spent three days here with a friend in one of the two-room suites--there was a bedroom with its own bathroom, and another full bathroom in the main space, which also included a second bed, a large sofa, a dining table, and a small kitchen area. The deck had two chairs.

Yes, this is an older property and in no way fancy, but I was astonished at how clean and comfortable everything was. There was not a stray hair, spiderweb, bit of fuzz, or errant piece of sand to be found when we entered--it was much better cared for in that respect than any of the fancy hotels I've stayed at for work conferences. The bed was only a couple of years old and was very comfortable (I had actually brought along a piece of memory foam to use if that wasn't the case, but I didn't need it). They've recently put in nice flat screen TVs. The appliances all worked well.

And the view through the sliding glass doors and the deck was incredible--we were looking straight out at the beautiful dunes and the rolling surf. We watched dolphins and pelicans go by and were entertained by visitors from what I took to calling "bird city"--a building across the street where crows and seagulls seemed to love to gather.

There was some noise from nearby rooms--we were on the first floor and could hear people walking above, running the water, etc.--but for some reason it didn't bother me the way it normally would. I guess I was just amazed that we could be right on the beach in such a comfortable place for a very, very, very reasonable rate. There were plenty of interesting restaurants and shops within half an hour, and I'm sure more would be open during the high season. I would definitely return to this hotel and hope to do so sometime in the summer or fall.

Room Tip: I'd look for a second-floor room next time if possible, just to avoid the sound of neighbors abo...

We spent 10 days here for the second time, and everything was perfect again. The owner even graciously stored some oversized panels for us while we were there. Everyone that worked there, from the front office to housecleaning were always helpful and nice. I highly recommend!

Room Tip: Best beach views are from the second floor.

Can't review the rooms because I messed up my reservation(wrong date). But it was full up & looked really clean & updated from the outside. Location was very close to everything. We are so grateful to Larry for calling around to find us a room. If the staff goes to that trouble for someone not even staying there they must really be good for the guests!

My best friend and I went down on Oct 2 just for a day and night to celebrate our birthdays and had a wonderful time. Our room was updated and sparkling clean, but the hotel still had that 50's mom and pop feeling that we both loved. The staff was especially nice, and let us check in a little earlier than the normal 2 pm check in time. We enjoyed the view from our private balcony and even took advantage of sitting on the porch overlooking the ocean in rocking chairs on a different level. We have stayed at the beach house several times before and never have been disappointed in our stay. Also I noticed they were cleaning the carpets in several units on our floor so that tells me the owners take a special interest in keeping a clean motel. The location was great, in walking distance of everything we wanted to see. We will definely return to the Beach House and recommend it to our friends and family.

Room Tip: I would recommend rooms on the 3rd level, better view of the ocean, the 2nd level also have a clear...

We stayed for 5 nights in mid September. The view of the ocean from our deck was amazing. We had a 2 room suite. The rooms were clean, but there was a odd odor in one of them. It was in walking distance of many good restaurants & the boardwalk which made it great! According to the brochure in our room, if you stay five or more nights the sheets get changed on the third night . Ours weren't.
