Miss Molly's was indeed a delightful inn...the screened in porch, availability of tea and coffee and snacks in a cozy setting made it a perfect place to read and relax. At first glance, we were excited! The upper deck would have also been a delight had the weather cooperated.The other guests we met were great folks, we enjoyed the company and sweet Ann, the Inn keeper. But that is where the good stuff ends. I guess we did not have the luxury accomodations the other reviewers rave about (and truly, we are seasoned B&B'ers who are easy to please!) Our room was tiny, but clean & sufficient; BUT we got ZERO sleep!! It was hot, there was NO AC, no FAN, so we had to open the windows and the street traffic barely died down all night long; more important, we stayed in Miss Molly's room probably on the original bed from the 1800s...the mattress was so soft and old& the whole bed shook everytime one of us moved (and we are NOT big people...I weigh 118#) At first, it was funny when we rolled together towards the middle b/c there was no support...by the end of the stay, we were not laughing, and we were exhausted. Our breakfast, was a muffin and a cold, tasteless waffle with a dusting of powder sugar and a bit of fruit. We were given milk, not half and half for coffee. We were so disgusted we checked out early and went elsewhere for breakfast on Sunday, our last day. For the amount of money ( our stay was $350 for two nights)...it was a TERRIBLE waste of our money, no matter how delightful the setting or the cordial host. The owners are Brits who are not on the property so they probably have zero interest in updating their American source of income. With so many other places to choose, we will certainly not return to Miss Molly's when we return next year...and have shared this info with the 22 people we meet there annually for the Seafood Festival.
