I was traveling with a friend. We booked room A on the advice of Fodor's book. We were very disappointed. Cramped, dingy, dirty, ill-maintained, constant damp, musty smell, uncomfortable, hard, lumpy beds, kitchen and bath were old, not filthy, but not inviting either. This place has potential but needs serious updating. I would not recommend The Garlands if looking for comfort and cleanliness. The best thing about The Garlands is the lovely ocean view and beach. The rates do not reflect the quality of accommodations being offered.
