Property conditions & facilities

8/10 Very good

Positives were the comfort, the setting (pool plus beach), the breakfast was great. The facilities like bikes and pool floats and even buckets and spades for the beach were great. Only downsides were the noisy air con, the loud floorboards (the noise of people above us was insane) and there wasn’t enough Sun loungers. Otherwise, everything was amazing, loved our stay. 10-15min drive to main restaurants on Periwinkle. Just fantastic

6/10 Good

Overpriced and underwhelming
The pros: the room was nice and clean, the staff were helpful and friendly, and the location was great. The cons: no food/dining options at all, looked like on the website that dining provided from sister property was connected but it wasn't, only a vending machine. Continental breakfast was decent. The property had 14 chairs and 7 umbrellas in total which made it close to impossible to get a chair at the beach. The pool allowed no food or drinks so in addition to not providing any, you could not bring your own. The property had bikes but not all were in working condition. No brochures/info on things to do or any suggestions. And it was very expensive. Not worth the money.

Nice, comfortable hotel on beach
Great location, beachfront with pool. Large room and nice size bathroom. Comfy bed, fridge, microwave, big tv, porch with chairs. Front office staff very friendly. Free breakfast with a good variety. Beautiful grounds, quiet, very relaxing motel. Highly recommend!

Great surprise
We booked this hotel last minute when our flight home from our week-long vacation was canceled and our previous condo wasn’t available. It was such a wonderful surprise. The beach, pool, and landscaping were beautiful. And they provided towels, beach chairs, kayaks, paddle boards, and breakfast. The room was a little crowded for four of us but we spent most of our time outside so it wasn’t a problem. The front office staff was so friendly and helpful as well. We really enjoyed our bonus vacation.

Seaside Inn is a very comfortable, small hotel right at the beach edge. We loved being able to meander out to a small, quiet beach (steps away) and spend our day watching the dolphins, pelicans and other birds. During our stay, multi-generations were represented. It was a lovely respite from winter's wrath.

Nice place, but with some issues
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Seaside Inn, though we did have a serious of annoyances and inconveniences throughout our 11 night stay, which for the price we paid, should NOT have been the case. To start, one of the two beds was terribly uncomfortable and the one that was comfortable, was up against a wall so you couldn’t get in and out of the bed from the side, but had to crawl out the bottom. Housekeeping is only offered every third day and they reliably forgot to empty garbage pails, replace toiletries and towels, and one night we even slept with no pillow cases. When I asked for a shower curtain without mildew, one was left hanging on our door knob for US to change. The on-site washers and dryers were never cleaned and the credit card payment option didn’t work more often than it did work. We had to drive to their other property, to get quarters, bc OUR office was closed. Through this all, Jason, at the front desk, was very friendly and helpful and tried to help make things right when he could. It’s a shame that this resort missed the mark so often, because it really could be a VERY nice place to stay!

Easy beach access
We loved that we were steps from the water. The breakfast was delicious with lots of grab and go items. The beds were very comfortable and there was ample on-site free parking. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The only downsides were that the bikes are showing their age, but it was great to have free use of them, and because of Covid there wasn't any housekeeping and it would have been nice to have the floors swept because of the sand. At some point these rooms should also be renovated. Overall, we would definitely stay there again.

Lots of things to do. I did not like the building. Paper thin walls and connecting doors which allowed you to hear everything said in the next room and impossible to sleep. Turned on the fan to drown it out but the fan was in the ceiling instead of the wall which blew air on you all night. So air blowing or noise were your choices
