    We've stayed at the Boatslip on Commercial Street. More a formula motel, not a B&B, we spent so little time in our room we really didn't care. Plus it has weekend gay tea dances, is on the beach, with a swimming pool, its own bar, and free on-site parking, some of it covered. We got a near $300 room for under $100 in the off-season in 2010.

    Most of the lovely Victorian-style guesthouses have no on-site parking and no beach access. They tell you to go down a few blocks to a public pay parking lot, which you have to figure into your cost & convenience. Plus they may have steep staircases and no elevators, a factor for us but perhaps not for you. Still, some are quiet charming, and all gay, which the Boatslip is not, despite the tea dances it holds, that are open to the public for a charge anyway.

    Google for something along Commercial Street, or just off it. Then you can walk to everything, except the north shore beaches. Though frankly I haven't gone in the water there since 1965, it's always way too cold for me.

    Just a few hundred feet east of the Boatslip is Jimmy's Hideaway, a gay-owned restaurant we recommend. They don't reopen until April 19. Here's a pic I took of Ray. His partner Jimmy sometimes tends bar, or works in the kitchen. DO GO!

    No, don't. Noise, noise, noise and not worth the money, even in the off season.

    For a good B&B, look at the Carriage House.
