(February, 2012) "We would like to express our deep and sincere thank you to everybody at The Emerson Inn who welcomed us over the weekend. We found the stay at the Emerson very enjoyable. Your facility was comfortable and provided great service and excellent food. I would like especially to compliment Melissa (our conference coordinator); she was a pleasure to work with. Melissa was very professional, polite, and punctual. She patiently helped us with all of our needs, and questions. She was truly a pleasure to work with. We also enjoyed excellent service provided by the rest of the Emerson staff. From the time of check in the staff made our stay enjoyable, and very helpful to the members of the group that traveled with spouses to the conference. I will certainly recommend the The Emerson Inn By The Sea to friends. The friendliness and hospitality of the staff was something never to be forgotten. Graciously, Bryan T."
