We enjoyed our one night at First Colony Inn: the historic atmosphere of the buildings, the friendly and very helpful staff, and the short walk across the street for an evening walk along the beach to the nearby large fishing pier. The wine and cheese after check-in in the dining room was a nice touch. We decided to eat carry-out dinner in our room so we could have a little more time to enjoy the nicely furnished and comfortable room. We walked to a nearby restaurant to pick up food, and got a couple of bottles of exotic beer from the front desk. Our room was on the first floor, so we couldn't see the ocean from our room, but we did spend some time sitting on the second floor balcony from where we could see a little bit of the ocean and the large grassy lawn of the inn that provided a nice buffer from the streets and nearby buildings. The building seemed quiet during the night and we slept very well. Paying more than $200 for a night was a little beyond my comfort zone, but I had had trouble finding a standard motel with consistantly good reviews that would book for only one night in August. So we splurged for First Colony. We also appreciated their lgbt-friendly ads.
