Our room was mere steps to the beach, food and drink! We were there in the off season and enjoyed the entertainment on the weekends. The food was the freshest seafood I have ever had and the staff were up beat and helpful. A great time for the whole family and they let us keep our dog in the room....

I wasn't a fan of wanna wanna... I talked my husband into it and now he has a reason to tell me , I told you so! Lol. Cons... The room was small and didn't smell very good. We apparently came in the off season so the bar closed at 9pm. No entertainment and the staff was very unprofessional. They...

The location is on the beach, the bar is SOOOOOOO good with its drinks, music and food. If you are looking for a luxury place, this is not it. Its a little loud at night which is a good thing or a bad think depending on your situation. It was not crazy loud but on the weekend there is a...

I chose Wanna Wanna for its location right on the beach. The room was very clean and had a refrigerator and microwave. My wife said the coffee maker was "disgusting", so she went out each morning for her coffee. The bed was comfortable. The bar was nice and not too noisy late at night. The best thing was that you...

We expected a pool to be on the property, like their website shows...when we got there the pool was filled with concrete. That was one of the reasons we wanted to stay there for 5 nights. They didn't even mentioned it when we checked in that there was no pool, what a disappointment!! Why didn't they tell us that when...

GREAT PLACE... clean rooms... it's nice to have rooms right off the beach. Very accessible, clean roomy, comfortable bed, a little older, and a bit pricey, although a great place to visit! Has an awesome grill and bar on sight, with good, efficient, and nice staff!

What a great staff to serve your every need. Seafood was absolutely fresh off the boat the view is great, clean rooms. You couldn't ask for better place to decompress after a stressful week. It's not the Hyatt its not the Marriott, Hilton it is the perfect hotel without all the corporate stuff and that makes it special it's just...

no frills inn but very clean and great people to work with. Alexa and Hanna were exceptional to our needs and info requests. The Inn is right on the beach and has a lot of day trippers but is quiet at night at least during off season!!

“Good luck with that :) Have only been in the 1 room--2nd floor would probably be nicer because of the view of water is better, but the steps are kind of steep up to that floor--so lugging suitcases may not be so easy.”
