Copper Whale Inn

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 June 2005

Make sure you get a written confirmation. They lost our first night reservation. The innkeeper was contrite, but his business manager?? was difficult to deal with and insinuated that we were in the wrong.
Breakfast was Jimmy Dean sausage and scrambled eggs and various store bought breads.
The rooms were fine.
Bottom line: Stay here if you want to be near downtown and right at the Coastal trail.

This was a very disappointing stay at a very tired property. It was obvious that the innkeeper has not put any time or money into bringing the room, common areas, or amenities up to standard. We had plastic blinds at the windows which were being held together by duct tape. The breakfast was the same tasteless, unappealing eggs and pancakes each morning, no imagination, no creativity. Just didn't have it. Stay someplace else.
