There was so much to like about this inn that I almost feel bad that I have some negative things to say also. Let me start by saying that overall, I am glad I stayed here. It was peaceful and quiet, it was charming and quaint, and it was romantic when the sun set over the water. So first, the pluses: the woman who checked us in was friendly and helpful; the room itself on the boardwalk was cute, clean and included a mini-fridge; the bathroom was clean and nicely decorated and the shower was good; the view from the room was terrific (see photos); and the free breakfast was a step up from the typical "free breakfast buffet" because the scrambled eggs actually tasted good! The only minuses were the bed and the light. The bed was good, but rather soft. This felt good during more romantic moments, but was a little uncomfortable for overnight sleeping. Now, I realize that everyone is different and if you like a softer bed, you would probably like this one so I can't really fault the inn for not pleasing everyone. However, I also had a problem with the amount of light in the room at night. The blinds did not block enough of the bright lights right outside our window during the night, nor the sun in the morning. I personally like to sleep in a darker room. However, I do recommend this place to anyone who doesn't mind some light and a softer bed at night.
