This hotel is located within walking distance of the Atlantic Ocean and Assawoman Bay. Behind the hotel is a beautiful park which sits on the sound with walking trails and a pier which was perfect for fishing from or watching the sunset. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean with plenty of towels - I didn't have...

We spent our honeymoon here and plan on going back for our anniversary. The suite was perfect, I could be up making coffee while my husband slept. The hotel is right on the beach and we had a great view of the ocean. We traveled during the Thanksgiving holiday and dinner was provided in the cafe. As always I can...

The location was perfect and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We checked in late and got a first floor room facing the parking lot. The room smelled very very musty/mildew. We would not stay on the first floor again.

We stayed at this hotel in late September and enjoyed everything it offered. The staff was extremely friendly; we were always welcomed each time we returned to the hotel. The hotel was very clean and quiet. Music is played as you walk in. Our room was located on the back side of the hotel, which offered a great view of...

Will stay here again! Excellent, friendly staff! Breakfast was hot and satisfying. Was quiet and comfortable. Night clerk Brian went above and beyond for us. Our last night there, we had a bad storm and rain was pouring in through AC unit, so Brian moved us to another room and gave us a late checkout.

I have stayed at this property several times over the last several years without any issues. This year was different...the hotel smelled very bad.

Great location to take a morning walk or bicycle ride around a path in a community park and out on a pier over the bay.
