The general manager that was there was Mr. Gordon Inman and his assistant Ms. Shamain. They made me and my family stay very comfortable as well as affordable!! I am a single mother of 3 and it was very convenient for the hotel to be walking distance to the beach. As soon as we entered into the room my kids...

What an amazing hotel and staff! They were all so friendly and welcoming. The location was so on point. Right next to the beach. The only downside was the shower. It made a loud sound like a whistle. But, literally that was the only thing that wasn't amazing about the place.

The staff is rude especially the man who checks you in. The room wasn't clean. There were hairs all over the covers. The phone in the room didn't work. The hanger on the back of the door broke off. It took for ever to get our room cleaned. Only positive is comfortable bed, hot water and location. Will never stay...

Best value at the beach. Will definitely go back. Rooms are simple but they are clean. We booked at last minute and they were able to accommodate our dog. The staff are all very courteous and will go out of their way to help you, especially the general manager Gordon. I'm reluctant to give it a high rating because if...

Hands down the best hotel we've stayed at. The Mermaid may not be the largest by size however the customer service is beyond anything we would have expected. It's like going to your local restaurant and everyone knows your name! The manager Gordon Inman went above and beyond to help a lady before us as hot wire had not completed...

Our stay at The Mermaid Inn was wonderful! Gordon, the front desk man, went above and beyond to take care of us, from making sure our room was fixed up well to giving us lunch recommendations. The view from our room was lovely, and the room itself was very clean and modern. The hotel was also only a few short...

First let me start by saying I can't remember the last time we stayed in a motel mostly because we prefer resorts. My husband decided to give me a last minute birthday surprise with a quick weekend trip to the beach. I found the Mermaid Inn, liked the reviews and photos plus the price was very reasonable so we booked....

We switched to The Mermaid Inn last minute because the hotel we had originally booked was terrible. The Mermaid Inn looks exactly like it does in the pictures. The room was extremely clean when we walked in, and is beautiful. It's so close to the beach and a great value. The staff and owner were super nice and went out...
