This was my first stay at The Whaler. I chose it because of the ocean view, and it paid off with a very pretty sunset the night I was there. The room was clean, but small, as was the bathroom. There was space for a "comfy chair," a place to sit and read or watch TV (which would have been very nice), but the only furniture was the bed, desk, and small dining table with hard chairs. I realize I paid extra for the ocean view, and the room was clean and comfortable and adequate.

The Whaler was everything I wanted for modest lodgings while we played at the beach for a few nights. Great view of the waves, the room was clean and nice, direct access to the beach. Staff was very friendly. House keeping doesn’t come till the end of your stay but they’d change your garbages out for you as needed. I’ll be staying again.

The staff was great. Called us when we on our way to let know our room was ready earlier than check-in. After check-in they check to make sure we were happy with our room.
