The Victorian room was great! Decorations were wonderful and room was very clean. Service was helpful when asked but understandably busy. Location was wonderful and there was not too much noise from traffic and bars at night.

Fabulous little getaway! Very peaceful and relaxing.

We booked this little one night getaway at the last minute and were very pleased to have such a great place to just relax and enjoy. Watching the ocean out of our window was fabulous.

This experience here at the Doryman's Inn was great. Very friendly people and RIGHT ON the beach. Right in front of the popular Sharkeez bar and newpot beach pier. Highly recommend the stay.

Having 4 bars in the same area as the hotel, there was quite a lot of noise at night that tapers off at about 3 am on weekends. After the drinking crowd leaves the street cleaner comes to clean up the large beach parking lot . Around 5:30 am the surfing crowd shows up, needless to say to noisy to sleep! The rooms were quaint and neat. If not for the noise I would frequent the Dorymans more often.

Wonderful Birthday

I booked Room 7 that faces the ocean for my wife's birthday. We came in the early afternoon. Check in was easy. The room beautiful. We walked along the beach and had dinner at Pescadu. After another walk on the beach, we went back and enjoyed the rest of the evening in a relaxed and comfortable environment. We plan on going back soon and making the Inn part of a new routine.
