Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of The Mermaid Inn

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person. This is the most recent visit:
"Trendy Little Inn"
Overall Score4.5/ 5
This hotel has been completely renovated and is charming. It reminds me of an older motor lodge style hotel with an upscale beach inn. It is the perfect little seaside inn. The rooms offer plenty of space and are nicely appointed with new furniture and linens. All of the rooms are exterior entrance but open up to the ocean and it is a short walk to the beach side. The hotel resides on the ocean and has plenty of parking, an outdoor pool, and grilling area. The rooms were very clean, staff was friendly and accommodating. There is a refrigerator in the guest rooms and some have microwaves. The hotel is situatated on the end of the beach before residential, so it provides a great beach for walking. With only 57 rooms, plan to make your reservations early. This is a simple, and relaxing, hotel which offers a neat little get away.
