Recent trip...roaches in the room, broken remote. Mgr said remotes broken on purpose so folks wouldn't steal them. No compensation OR apology for the roaches. Have stayed several times in the past and have been happy. Never again...not just because of the roaches but because of poor customer service

The Clam Digger is in an uncrowded area of the beach. My room was clean and quiet, tho the bathroom is really small. Other guests and staff were friendly. Access to the beach is great. A great place to walk and a lot of shells. I'd give it a 4 except it's showing its age and the balcony and bath...

Me and my boyfriend rented a room at the Clam Digger Inn for two nights for our getaway vacation we have long since needed and deserved. When we first got to the hotel the staff were friendly and welcoming. They checked us into our room on time. It was the wrong type of room, but was fixed immediately and we...

The hotel was clean, beds were comfortable, AC worked great, but the bathroom area was small. The bathroom was extremely small and made it difficult to use. The door did not lock and was not big enough to get changed in.

Stayed here on a first visit from a Monday to a Thursday. The weekend rate is 205 and I think that is a bit pricy for what should be offered at that rate. I had tiny ants in my room in several areas. My internet connection did not connect in the room and the front desk said for me to...

We visited during the off season and quickly discovered there weren't too many hotels to choose from. After a recommendation we were very happy to find that the Clamdigger Inn was not only affordable but charming. The hotel is older and a little outdated but we don't mind that sort of thing. I think it just adds to the charm...

This is our second stay in 2 years and this hotel is worse than the last time. Rooms are looking run down and the cleanliness is beginning to fade in the bathroom area. Carpet was coming off the walls too. Went to the beach and paid for 3 days for the chairs and canopy. The second day I requested a...

Clean says it all, very nice hotel on site restaurant had excellent omelets and wonderful staff will stay here again! Very pleasant surprise for a non chain hotel. View from the balcony was excellent. The pool was great!

The staff was very friendly and professional. The hotel itself needs some work. Just minor things like paint, and new ceiling tile would go a long way in improving the appearance. The carpet felt nasty to my bare feet and the room had a musty smell. It was way over price at $350 for two nights. I probably wouldn't stay...
