Clean says it all, very nice hotel on site restaurant had excellent omelets and wonderful staff will stay here again! Very pleasant surprise for a non chain hotel. View from the balcony was excellent. The pool was great!

The staff was very friendly and professional. The hotel itself needs some work. Just minor things like paint, and new ceiling tile would go a long way in improving the appearance. The carpet felt nasty to my bare feet and the room had a musty smell. It was way over price at $350 for two nights. I probably wouldn't stay...

This was my first time visiting the Clam Digger Inn, three girlfriends in tow, and I can definitely say that we will be returning upon our next trip to the island. Even on what I am sure is probably the busiest weekend of the summer, check-in was quick and painless and there was still plenty of parking available in the...

It's not the fanciest place, but every room has an ocean view and a balcony. With the restaurant and lounge on site it's easy to relax. The rooms might be a little dated but were very clean. The staff is friendly. We arrived during a hurricane but felt completely safe.

When we first walked into our room, the distinct nasty odor of cat urine was overpowering. There is just no mistaking that retched smell. Then we started finding the roaches. They were coming out at night and crawling all over the vanity where are personal belongings were kept...toothbrushes! Roaches were not only crawling on the vanity but they were even...

It's not the fanciest of hotels but it is clean with a nice pool. All rooms have a great ocean view! It is on a nice location that is convenient to anywhere you wish to go on the Crystal coast. The restaurant has excellent food with decent prices.

I don't know the last time I stayed in such a trashy hotel, especially for the price. My family came in town for a wedding so I thought it would be nice to find a place on the beach to enjoy while we were here. When we first walked in the room, there was an overwhelming stench of mold and...

We have been faithful to this hotel coming 5 to 7 nights every year since 2007!! My girls are now 15 and 11. Today the lounge was empty so my daughter and I walked in to play the jukebox. Tammy the bartender said "no Kids allowed". She could have been less abrupt . When I expressed to her that she...

We stayed at the Clam Digger Inn for 2 nights June 2014. Great location for a beach vacation. Everything you need for a day at the beach at your fingertips. Umbrellas and chairs for rent at a reasonable price. Complimentary towels. Pool bar where you can get food at a reasonable price. Nice pool. Every room has a ocean view...
