The location of this property is perfect. Easy parking and walkable to several restaurants. Free hot breakfast was nice feature as well.

Loved the Boutique feel. Didn’t feel like a run of the mill hotel. All of the staff we encountered was friendly and helpful.

Lobby still under renovation but rooms were great! Nicest people working front desk & breakfast. Kudos for a great staff AND a great location!

The best part about the hotel was its location. 1.They changed my room from one with a balcony to one without and refused to adjust the price. After arguing with the staff, they took off $20/night. 2. I was notified 2 days prior that they are going through renovations and that it was going to be noisy from 9 a.m to 6. But it was major renovations limiting access to the elevators and hotel lobby bathroom, it was dusty. This was spring break and everything else was booked. I was paying $350/night 3. I was told my water was going to be shut off for 1 hour (for renovation purposes), over 4 hours later, I still had no running water 4. Room was dingy, rusty.. towels, pillow cases, sheets are old looking. Ice machine out of order 5. You have to reserve beach chairs ahead of time through a 3rd party (the hotel picture suggests otherwise) 6. Last night there, a couple of guys (I assume guests) decided to run around the hotel banging on doors and run away, mine was at 4:30 in the morning. I contacted the front desk.. 20 minutes later, I heard another door being banged on. In the morning, when I asked the front desk about the incident, no one knew what I was talking about. I'm glad it was my last night since there's no security available and no follow-up

The extra door lock (door bar) was not present in my room, the ball that usually connects to the door was missing so there was no way to lock my door to prevent anyone with a master key or key they did not turn in from getting in my room and the balcony door was so rusted it was difficult to lock

Location and Mindy checking us in.

The front desk Mindy is the best person , very kind and helpful. We arrive late and she call the restaurant on the side for food for us . The hotel smell good and the room very clean

Jacqueline and all the staff are fantastic! Loved the location and the renovated property! We had a great time.

Good location right in the beach, but that’s it. The property is dated with stinky passages / corridors, not much emphasis was given to cleaning in our room, the bathroom was not clean with hair etc. on the floor and in the basin from the previous resident. The carpet inside the room was also not clean .The staff upon check-in was not friendly (they were not rude as well!), nobody cares about you having a good experience. The complimentary breakfast was so-so. We checked out a day early as we couldn’t stand the hotel & our room. All in all a bad experience.

Very nice staff

Great little room for a weekend getaway very clean and friendly staff, covered parking which was a plus for our topless roadster.

moved out of this hotel. toilet was running non stop, I fixed it twice. air conditioner sounds like it's going to space. water in the shower is alternating from hot to luke warm to cold- ish. not to mention everything is dirty. i found a used wet towel on a chair on the balcony, and samd in my bed

Breakfast was great, the location was perfect for our family. The beach, restaurants and a skate park nearby.

Seaside Inn was very nice, nice balcony room the staff was very friendly. It was nice to walk to dinner Salt Life restaurant was a 1/2 block away and a convenient store right across the street and the beach just a few steps away. We really enjoyed our stay. 5 stars !!!

Overall a good stay. Staff was very kind and extremely helpful. The hotel is “on the beach” however it has a restaurant right in front blocking the view unless you’re on the 3rd floor. I will say that if you have someone who has difficulty walking or uses a wheel chair or walker you may consider another hotel. The wheelchair ramp which doubles as a ramp to one of the parking lots is very steep and the parking under the hotel requires you to walk a significant distance around basically to say that if you have someone disabled like we did you’re going to have to load up in the car to get over to the beach. Breakfast was still provided despite many hotels not serving due to COVID-19. You selected what you want on a paper sheet and they put it in a to go box for you. They said this is how they serve all the time. One thing I didn’t know until checking in is that they have a roof top “lounge” that you can use
