Comfortable room with friendly staff. Plenty of free parking on the street. Walking distance to restaurants, shops & the beach. A short drive to the zoo. The room was small but all we needed and very clean.

If you need a clean simple room in a great location this is the place for you. Comfortable beds and a nice bathroom is pretty much all I need. The check in and check is about the easiest you will ever find too.

It's a walk to the beach however the bus runs for free during the summer. Your closer to the Ferrys landing which has a little beach. But it's a walk to the beach... But this little hotel is nice. You will love it. 👍😊
