supposed ocean front room view was obstructed and too far away from the ocean. I happened to have a bruised knee elevator was out of order for my whole stay. this was very inconvenient. The grounds were nicely kept and the room was cleen and comfortable, however when I felt misled by the description ocean view.

Just spent 5 days at the Periwinkle Inn. Rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly.There is a baby pool and we were right across fromthe beachwhich is immaculate. The one drawback is that there was NO elevator service for the 5 days we were there. It was very inconvenient.
