Step out of the ordinary. Inn on the Beach is a botique hotel located right on the sand. Lodgings with views are numerous, very few are Ocean Front. Our rooms offer balcony or patio, gas fireplaces, flat screen lcd tv's, and refrigerators. A continental breakfast is provided each morning.

My wife and I have been staying here every year for six years. Its old and a bit run down in some ways but its clean and inexpensive for being right on the beach. Super nice staff/owners(?). 5 or 6 places to eat on the same block. (Right next to it). We love staying here.

We love that this place is right on the beach, has a balcony for ocean viewing, AND has a fireplace. Absolutely love staying here. It can be a little sandy at times, because ... you know, you are on the beach -- but I've never found it to be dirty. We've stayed here numerous times and will continue to do so.

This place definitely needs refurbishment like any place so close to the sea it has been rubbed by the humid sea breeze. The location and view is spectacular and the staff was very welcome. I was a littler nervous by some negative ratings in the web but these are not true and obvioulsly done by picky people as every place in this world has occasionally bugs and dirt it you zoom in the closest corners with a zoom lens. Various food locations in the same street offer good food and drinks.

The best view in town is unfortunately wasted in a very poorly managed hotel. The rooms are at best surface clean, the dust behind the bed was embarrassing even to the day manager who helped us look for an outlet that wasn't even close enough to the desk to plug in our computer. He was helpful and suggested we move the desk closer to the plug. I am a solutions person so this seemed reasonable. The staff that I met were helpful but they ran out of bottled water and there was no water even in the vending machine. Regarding value, this hotel wasn't cheap, I could have stayed somewhere cheaper and probably cleaner but opted for the view instead. Cleanliness as I mentioned was beyond reasoning, nothing was clean, the bathroom shower began to fill with water shortly after the water was turned on. The most absurd event is that we went without hot water for more than 24 hours without notice. I had to ask when it was coming back on. As far as dining, their breakfast room has potential but it's evident no one cares to take away the cement bags in the corner that assumingly making repairs. Sadly, I would not reccommend this hotel, no matter how beautiful the view.

It is a well-worn beach hotel that is in need of a remodel. Great location on the beach with several good local restaurants and pubs next door.

My husband surprised me with a stay at the Inn on the Beach. The view is spectacular, overlooking the beach & ocean. The clean room was really nice, having antique furniture & a gas fireplace. We dined at Duke’s restaurant right across the street. We definitely will return.
