Dolphin Motel Review

With rooms that cost about as much as a tank of gas, this family-run motel across from Fisherman's Landing is a great pick for solo travelers and couples on a tight budget. Rooms are simple but clean and have shared balconies that offer a glimpse of the harbor. Budget-minded visitors appreciate sensible perks such as a scale in the lobby for weighing luggage—to avoid those extra fees at the airport—and a Continental breakfast of coffee, muffins, and fruit served in the sunny courtyard.
