Interesting place to stay! Our room had a fireplace, which was a great perk. But we did not have access to ice or a freezer. The building is old, and while some of it has been restored, parts are in need of sprucing up. I enjoyed our stay, but can't give it 5 stars. If you like staying in funky older buildings then give it a try.

The Inn is such a cute place but our entire stay has been decimated by the way we have been overcharged by the property. We were billed $50 more than what we booked on Expedia. We tried to call the property but the number clearly is not correct. The call goes to some culinary institute. So there is absolutely no way we can contact the hotel which is obviously horrible. All the numbers we found on google also does not work which makes this a very fishy deal!!!!! What’s up there? On top of this, Expedia also doesnt solve our issue. It’s been pending for like forever. So basically right now we just regret staying there!!!! So if you wanna stay there, stay at your own risk...

Location is fantastic. We stayed on 3rd floor and had a great view of the ocean. Room was quaint, as it is a very old building. The bathroom reflected the age of the building-very old and small. The bathroom door became stuck and I thought I was going to be trapped in the bathroom all night as the door knob would not turn. The kitchen was bright and clean, but the only food offered was bagels and jelly. For the price of the room, one would expect more than bread or a bagel. Overall it was an enjoyable stay
