Sub par for the price
The place is a little worn and dirty. I have stayed there two times now and cannot find anyone at the desk so I have to go over to Congress Hall to get help checking in etc. The room I was in #8 has the emergency exit running between the room and bathroom with hallway lights that stay on all night which make the room to light to sleep in. Overall, for the price in the off season, the accommodations are not acceptable.

We were in one of the Inn Rooms and it left a lot of be desired in terms space. The ceilings were slanted so we kept bumping our heads. We also had a room that had

This Inn is so charming, clean and updated. Our room was bright and cheery with an ocean view. A block from the ocean, town and across the street from historic Congress Hall. Also all of the amenities of Congress Hall are included in your stay. Friendly staff also.

An ok stay
Cute room, good service and fantastic location. However, the room was very small and a was borderline uncomfortable. The bathroom was nice but again very small. The sink/faucet was so small it was practically unusable.
