Negative Reviews

Not the nicest scent

On occasions, you may notice something of a musty smell at John Yancey Oceanfront Inn, both in public areas and in guestrooms. This can be quite overwhelming at times.

Room issues

The beds at this hotel certainly aren't the most comfortable. You might not get a very enjoyable night's rest in them. Also, while some rooms offer nice views, others look out on nothing more attractive than a parking lot.

A facelift is needed

The property could use something of a revamp. Some of the carpets have stains on them and a lot of the furnishings are dated. A bit of loving care and a general spruce up would really make the place feel much fresher.
