Nice, clean,cute, well maintained hotel room. Easy checkin, super nice staff. Fantastic location, close to everything and right on the beach. Ocean view from our room. The stairs were a bit scary when they were wet. Great weekend getaway.

Hi Amy, Thank you for your sweet words. We love hearing from guests and have heard from others that our manager Marie makes them feel like family :) Wood stairs and wet feet are a mix that requires careful stepping - thank you for bringing that to our attention. We do hope you will stay with us again in the future.

The Skylark is a few steps away from an incredible beach that you can talk long walks. Central to all the activity in the area. The views from the room are just beautiful. You can park your car and never have to drive for the entire visit. There are beaches, restaurants, OOB amusement park/Palace Playland all just a short walk away.

We stayed in the Penthouse - 3 good size bedrooms; 2 tvs (living room and master bedroom, huge deck to enjoy your morning coffee or watch the sunset with a glass of wine. There is a gas grill, chairs and umbrella table . The kitchen is fully equipped. We will be back.. great for families or adult couples.

Made a last minute weekend trip to the Skylark and couldn't have been happier. We were able to snag a room on the 2nd floor with great views. Being right on the beach and only a few blocks from downtown was ideal. The rooms are old school but had everything we needed and everything was very clean. I'll be going back for sure.

Lovely place for a weekend stay! The best part is the kitchenette. They provide you with everything you need (glasses,pots,pans,knives,spatulas etc) The room was nice and cozy. Super clean and comfy. They have properly marked parking spots which is amazing because parking on the beach can sometimes cost a lot. Its right on the beach.. no even 100 meters which is awesome! Loved a stay at this place and would definitely stay here on my next visit! Oh and yes, our room had a faulty refrigerator :( So i called Roger (i believe) who was quick to respond!

So sorry for not answering sooner. We do not provide beach chairs but you can keep them outside the room.
