Trip Advisor Reviews

“Superb family-run hotel that is reasonably priced and only 1 block from the beach! Staff is truly amazing!! We loved the casual, beach-inspired decor of the rooms, too. We'll definitely come back again!"
- Kevin C on Tripadvisor
“Absolute best hotel! LOVE everything about this hotel! The sun deck is amazing and the perfect place for wine and apps while enjoying the sunset. This is a fantastic small hotel that makes you feel welcome.”
- Campbls on Tripadvisor
“Charming, friendly "B&B"-type hotel. The location is really unbeatable -- 1 block walk to a wide open beach. Rooms were charming and included everything you'd expect, but with much more character. The desk staff was so friendly. Hope to be back someday!
