Return to the Beach Cottages
I always love staying at the Beach Cottages and return again and again. The location is ideal - right on the beach and lots within walking distance. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Parking and wifi are included in the room cost.

Clean, inexpensive, friendly ocean side stay
check in was amazing, fast, they had keys ready and parking was very close. Room was very clean, not much of an ocean view, but you could hear the ocean at night. Well worth the price.

Get away days, restful nights.
Call it a rustic retreat from the modern world. Fall asleep to the sound of waves washing the sand. Shuffleboard and ping pong, a fire pit and barbques with a Ralph’s accross the street. Binge on a bungalow and relax at your own picnic table with umbrella. Many walkable restaurants and beachfront bars. We were in 502, queen in bedroom with a door between us and our 6 ft plus teenage boys in the foldout couch. Dining table inside if weather precludes outside table use. Full size refridge and kitchen with enough old fashioned utensils to get by on if cooking yourself meals. Lots of options, no worries.

Service great. Comfort not so good.
Location and service was great. No air conditioner, which normally is not a problem, except only way to cool this room is with patio door open all the time. Which was a security issue. Ice machine didn't work. But Maurice went above and beyond by getting ice from the local convenience store.
