I like everything
We were greeted by a very friendly staff member at check in. Hotel is at a good location right at Sunny Cove Beach.
We’ve waited several weeks now for Ocean Echo Inn to address the issue we had with them. The hotel is very small, but nicely located above Sunny Cove beach. We were greeted by a friendly staff member who gave us room #8. Be warned: there is no AC so if you’re going on a warm weekend your stay will be uncomfortable. They had a ceiling and floor fan in the room, but it was still stuffy and hot to the point that we went to the beach for some fresh, cool air. Nothing terribly untolerable, however, as we prepared for bed we noticed straight away that we could feel the coils in the mattress; there was even a significant gap/dip right in the middle of it! Obviously this bed is quite old and worn and has been overlooked for a replacement for quite some time. We had an uncomfortable night’s sleep and I made a mental note to mention this upon checkout. I didn’t get a chance, because we got distracted with a more dire issue the next morning when my husband went to grab coffee. He never got it. The hotel’s parking lot is located on a steep slope. While pulling out of this lot, he overcorrected and turned to compensate for the sharp incline, which got our car stuck on a ledge. While he should have been more cautious while pulling out, upon closer inspection we noticed that the angle of the parking space was precariously situated in such a way that would make it extremely easy to make this instinctual error - in fact, we saw broken cement and raw rebar at the site, indicating that weren’t the first and only car to “strand” ourselves on this funky little slope. We called AAA to help us off the ledge and they even commented about how dangerous the spot was. The incident caused significant damage to our vehicle. We were in a rush to meet people for brunch, so we took pictures and left. We then reached out that they should have had the space blocked off or at least, given verbal and/or written warnings posted at the site about the potential danger. No response.
Staff and cleanliness exceeded expectations. Sonea (spelling?) was great! Very friendly.
Breakfast accommodations were small, but adequate selection of items offered. Hardly enough to complain about.
We really liked the cottage!
The rooms were amazing. Very clean and decorated like a beautiful seaside cottage. Also the continental breakfast was fabulous
We were under the impression that the rooms looked at the ocean. There was only one room with that view. Also you have access to the ocean but only on a cove. So no long walks on the beach unless you want to walk a mile or so.
