Finding decent accommodation for a reasonable price in Heringsdorf turned out to be a tough job, even end of September/early October (granted, 3 October is a holiday in Germany). I stumbled upon this small hotel garni (meaning w/o restaurant), which is quite centrally located in town, but also on the main road along the seaside resorts. It turned out the hotel (or rather B&B) consisted of a main building with several rooms, reception (occasionally staffed) and breakfast room, and an added wing motel style with another five rooms in the back. I had a room in the wing in the back, meaning I could park the car (and bicycle) right in front of the door to the room and also with the advantage of less noise from the main road. However, the door to the main building was locked in the afternoon/evening, and I had no access to the sitting area with books, refreshments then.
Unique Quality: The room was clean, equipped with quite comfy (twin)bed(s), TV, telephone, shower/WC, unfortunately no hairdryer. The main problem was no hot water in the evenings after about 8 pm. Also, walls appeared to be rather thin and I woke up in the morning when the upstairs neighbours took a shower.
Breakfast was included in the room rate (single room 49 Euro per night, double 59 per night) and was in the wintergarden style dining room in the main building - nice ambience, bright room, large enough tables, the choices at breakfast were ok - but nothing special. Tea (bags), coffee, (watery) orange juice, cold cuts, a selection of cheese, fruit, two sorts of yoghurt, three choices of jam, honey, hazelnut-chocolate cream, very good bread and rolls, cereals, boiled eggs. Quality was ok in general.
Parking was additional 3 Euro per night, city tax ("Kurtaxe") was 1.30 Euro per night and person, if I recall correctly (double in summer season). Payment with maestro card and cash accepted, no credit card. The owner and staff were friendly and helpful, a bit reserved at first, but once you talked to them they warmed up and got talkative :-)
All in all the hotel was a good deal for Heringsdorf. I would stay there again.
