Friendly and courteous staff at this lovely little inn. Nice decor and surroundings. Breakfast could be a little more accommodating but it is adequate. Small area around the pool for relaxing but serves its purpose.

we loved every minute being there--everything was spotless from the room to the jacuzzi :) The front desk helped us with our bags to the second floor, the continental breakfast person gave us hints for lunch!

You'll have to walk to the beachfront and then up State Street, but it's about half an hour in total. Or you can walk to Stearns Wharf (about 10 minutes) and get the free shuttle up to the Downtown areas.
