8/10 Very good

Vivien greater us like friends when we arrived and allowed us to check in hours before the posted time, which was much appreciated. Her adorable dog Bobby helped her show us to our room, which was lovely and clean. Our patio had lots of seating and it was lovely to sit and watch the hummingbirds come to the feeder. Coffee was delivered to our patio each morning before we awoke, a great way to start the morning. Samara is a small town, so everything we needed was very walkable, including the beach. There was a small kitchen available to us on the property which we didn’t need but would be nice for those not wanting to eat out each meal. Overall our stay was relaxing, and it was a great place to recharge at the halfway point of our trip. This place is a little gem in the middle of Samara

Excellent property - serene atmosphere, perfect welcome from friendly manager. Greeted with true warmth and given an informational tour of room. Something many properties miss. The room was excellent, generous amount of towels (including beach towels) which is really good. Hot tub, (well - cool tub - but great for a cooling dip.) Can see why place is so highly rated. Say hello to Spencer the dog from me.

Quaint Lodge Style Hotel- Close to Everything
My dad and I had a great 2 night stay here. The owners were so tentative and friendly and they gave our stay a real personal care. The hotel is quaint, rooms are comfortable, clean, and beautifully decorated for a real lodge feel. We loved the access/use of the outdoor general kitchen and the hotel's location in this part of town made it quiet and private, yet close to walk to the beach and everything in town.
