Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

The John Wesley Inn & Carriage House is restored with an amazing level of care you can sense in its photos but which living & experiencing is just thrilling & humbling. It's furnished with beautiful antiques throughout, all historic, all carefully and intelligently chosen, yet has all modern amenities (think, a Sheraton). The entire Inn is spotless. The location is stellar, 2 blocks from many Beach Ave restaurants & the Washington Mall both. Turning left out of the Inn goes to a lovely plaza and turning right is the beach. Couldn't be better. The off-street parking is a big bonus. Bonnie serves a very tasty & homemade gourmet breakfast daily with personal touches that are missing from modern American life. I love the Inn's warmth, emotionally & materially. A sunroom in the uppermost floor is a very relaxing and open area in which to relax, daydream, read & slowly enjoy life's finer points. Host Bonnie & husband Lance make you feel like family, their warm loving and pleasant demeanor are emblematic of the town's lovely vibe. They take care of your every need. My only regret is that we had to leave. What a marvelous and relaxing weekend. Can't wait to come back.

Unique Quality: Room #1 "The Stockton" - 2nd floor, biggest & best, front porch
Room #2 "The Windsor" - 2nd floor, middle
Room #3 "The Marquis de Lafayette" - 2nd floor, private, rear
Room #5 "The new Mt. Vernon" - 3rd floor version of #1 minus porch
Room #6 "The Columbia" - spacious, 3rd floor rear left before sunroom, skylight
Room #7 "The John Wesley" - similar to #6 but towards front
Carriage House - Super-quiet, in the far rear in its own dedicated unit with dedicated parking
