Amazing location and extremely helpful staff.

Can't beat the location!
You can't beat the location - right on the beach and around the corner from the shops and restaurants. A little old and musty, but we had a terrific stay.

Wonderful hotel
This wonderful hotel was on the beach. How AWESOME is that and the price was PHENOMENAL. I've seen others over priced for a lot less quality.The staff at Dolphin Cove Motel made you feel welcome. Very warm and caring, smiles on their faces making your stay was the best and for me, it was just that. Thank you Dolphin Cove Motel. I'll be back again......

Beach time!
Very Good, I love the beach right there, the room is small but it fine you want to go to the beach anyway. the boardwalk takes you right to some good restaurants and shopping without having to move the car. I like this place overall for those reasons.
