Score from 90 reviews Good
At the time we visited, the beach was very narrow and flooded in some areas at high tide. Would be nice to be able to order hot breakfast items beyond the light continental breakfast included with the room.
A nicely landscaped and well maintained property, great outdoor pool, friendly staff, bike rentals available on-site, clean modern well appointed rooms (ours was StarkyLodge - studio), complimentary one hour shelling beach guided walk by a marine biologist. The atmosphere was relaxed and we did not feel like we were at a busy hotel resort, more like a private beach house. Reservations manager resolved a reservation billing issue quickly and fairly.
Bedroom on the small and tight side.
Staff, pool, breakfast.
The cottage we stayed in was right off the ocean and brand new!
Continental breakfast could use cereal, and real half & half for coffee, bagels to toast instead of 2 kinds of bread. It would be nice if pool were larger and had a hot tub.
Pretty room, great views of ocean, not crowded, great housekeeping.
Grounds not pretty, beach chairs old and out dated covered gazebos.
Room was very very clean! People very friendly.
The beach was loaded with shells but not the kind of beach to lounge on a beach chair.
Excellent Restaurant on the premises.
Our room wasn't ready for early check in, so the older lady said she would phone as soon as it was. She NEVER phoned. She also was not very happy. The young Indian man was very pleasant!! 5 stars for him.
We were in the newer building, very nice, but small suite, could only squeeze by wall to get into the bed. Great light breakfast. The location is the key draw!
Staff was terrific. Room very comfortable.
The "noseeum bugs". When we checked in, the counter was covered with different brands of bug spray to purchase. It would have been nice if we were advised after booking the Inn about the bugs or given a complimentary can. Also, there was nowhere to purchase any snacks.
The Inn was right on the Gulf.
The Inn advertises breakfast is included, but this was a dismal offering, especially for the price paid to stay at this Inn. No cereals, no eggs, plain bread, a few pastries and a little fresh fruit. We had dinner in the Traditions restaurant, but the live music is so loud you can't have a conversation.
The Inn is nicely situated along the beach of the Gulf. It is away from traffic noise and offers a nice screened in porch off the room. Bathroom is quite nice, though the sink faucet didn't work properly (hot on the right and tepid on the left.)
The restaurant is separately run, thus annoyingly couldn't put costs on the hotel bill.Access to my side of the bed!
Nice space but strange layout which meant one side of the large bed was all but inaccessible.Partial ocean view from the balcony. Swimming pool.
Horrible phone service. Bed and pillows were uncomfortable.
The location and the staff.
Everything was perfect, we will be back.
Couldn't get a wifi connection with supplied password.
Excellent, quiet location on the beach
Friendliness of staff location directly at the beach Option to receive towels even before check-in Free parking Really nice room
Close to beach and good shelling site. Very spacious rooms and good facilities. Staff are very friendly.
The proximity to the beach and the historic value of this property make it a real gem. Loved the screened-in porch. The hotels restaurant (Traditions) is WONDERFUL for dinner. We seldom eat in a hotel's restaurant, preferring to try out several in the area, but we so enjoyed the food at Traditions that we dined there three evenings! Gourmet dinners, live entertainment, great wait staff!
excellent location, friendly staff, will definitely return
Service to fast at the restaurant Meal too spicy
On the Beach View from the balcony Screened balcony Kimg size bed
Everything! The staff was friendly and provided my husband and I with a great packet of information about the island and all kinda of local shops, coupons, everything you can think ok! My husband and I can't wait to go back to celebrate our first wedding anniversary.
I thought the breakfast was poor. Tasteless fruit, below average coffee, need a toaster oven to warm pastries. Average food selection.
Location to Ding Darling
Super-clean, right on the water, nice areas to relax aside from room, fabulous view, friendly and helpful staff, good restaurant on-site
I would have liked to have had cereals, oatmeal, and rye and whole-wheat bread added to the breakfast menu.
Our room was right on the beach with a lovely enclosed patio and a spacious bathroom. It was perfect. The staff was very helpful and the maintenance crew were excellent. I would go back.
Mattress & lanai chairs need an upgrade. Breakfast was substandard so we didn't try restaurant. For breakfast adding a toast option, hot tea besides Lipton, and pitchers of milk for tea & coffee would upgrade the breakfast nicely.
Location is lovely. All interactions with staff were very positive and helpful. Option to rent recreational equipment at hotel great. Based on our overall experience I would return.
