Positive Reviews

Relaxing beachfront location

The inn is located on a pretty stretch of beachfront that's great for swimming, water activities and simply lounging in the sun. Beach chairs and umbrellas are provided. Also, you can easily bike to many spots, including the Lighthouse, various restaurants and shops. The inn provides bicycles and it's a fun way to see the island. Don't expect late night excitement here, this is a great option for a quiet, relaxing vacation.

Lots of amenities included

The small resort fee includes lots of great amenities. Inclusions such as loungers, umbrellas and beach towels are very convenient. There are barbecues for grilling, a complimentary breakfast basket each day and full kitchens in the suites and cottage for easy meal preparation. You have unlimited use of bicycles, kayaks and paddleboards and the pool area is nice. It's ideal for both families and couples looking for a fun and relaxing beach vacation.

Friendly, helpful staff

Seaside Inn staff is friendly and welcoming. They can be relied on for great restaurant recommendations and are accommodating with check-in and room selection. They deliver a daily breakfast basket the night before and set up the loungers and umbrellas so they are ready for use each morning.

Negative Reviews

Small guestrooms

Rooms are small and the kitchens a little hard to function with for breakfast. However, they are clean and comfortable. Get a suite or cottage if you need more space and try for a Gulf view room.

A little dated

Seaside Inn is a little run down and beginning to show some wear. While it could use some updating, it's clean and offers a relaxing, low-key vacation experience.

Not enough loungers

During busy times, you may not get a beach lounger and umbrella. Make sure you get arrive early if you don't want to risk missing out.
