If you've forgotten anything, such as shampoo, etc. just ask at the desk and it will be provided.The hotel employees were all extremely helpful and cordial. There is a wonderful breakfast/lunch restaurant...

They take your credit card information & have you sign a waiver stating if you smoke in the room you'll be charged an extra $100.00 above the cost of the room. Then when you don't smoke in the room, you still get charged the extra $100.00 when your credit card statement comes in a month later.When you try to speak...

Cute hotel with cozy rooms and a great location. There were some quirks to the rooms, but that is to be expected in a period hotel. Hauling suitcases to the top floor was a workout. While we were warned of the situation, were we unprepared for the number of flights to get to the top. One large suitcase was a...

This is a very nice 100 year old boutique hotel facing the beach, but we were put on the fourth floor without any warning ahead of time that there were no elevators. We had to drag our suitcases up 7 flights of stairs. f I had known ahead of time I would have packed a back pack for the two...

We stayed at the Macomber in June. Were upgraded to a double queen room which was lovely. The old fashioned sink in the room worked out well for us because one could be showering while another of us was doing make-up or hair. Our room included a small fridge and coffee pot. The front porch provided rocking chairs, round tables...

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend. We stayed in one of the smallest rooms, as that was all that was available, but seeing as we spent very little time in our room, that didn't matter too much. I loved the location, as it was walking distance to the mall and beach. On site parking is a definite...

I first stayed at the Macomber in July of last year. My best friend and I were looking to get away for the weekend. After searching many shore towns and many hotels, we came across the Macomber.
