I love that we got to take the bike out for free, everything was a walking distant. The room we stayed in was perfect for the two. The kithenette was perfect had everything we needed. The only thing i didnt like was the bed it wasnt soft enough for our comfort, as well as the pillow wish it was had more fluffiness. But overall we enjoyed our stay. Definitely would return.

The staff was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We loved that we could take the bikes out for the day and ride along the beach and state street. The property was in the perfect location. Quiet but within walking distance of everything. Highly recommend and will definitely stay here again!

I appreciated the feel of a cozy small hotel. The entire place was fully stocked from the kitchen to the restroom and the free rentals of bikes, beach umbrellas and beach chairs is such an awesome option. We didn’t use any of the items on our trip but it’s nice to know it’s available for future trips.
