The price is decent, though they do not offer a military discount so for us we could have stayed at the Kimberling Inn for less. We stayed here because of the location, right next to the Bearded Clam, possibly the same owners. When we arrived there was no one in the office so we actually had to go to the Clam to get someone. The office is a bit on the gross side but the rooms are clean and comfortable though not at all updated. There was no remote for the TV in the room, but the A/C was new and cold, good thing since temperatures were near 100 when we were there.
The best part about this hotel is its location, no driving home from the bar at night! The pool is sort of shared with the Bearded Clam but until about 10pm it is mostly families around the pool. Bar goers and others tend to hang out on the balcony and in the courtyard which both overlook the bar at night, a fun atmosphere but not loud. You can obviously hear the band at the bar in the hotel rooms, the cabins may be different, so if you plan on going to sleep before 11pm you will be contending with that. Overall it was an average place with an average price, and above average location for what we were looking for.
