I stayed at Mike's Cottages for the Seafood Festival this year. Best place to stay! It was closer to the entrance where the statute is than any other parking lot. The place was very roomy and clean, stocked with all appliances in the kitchen. I did ask for extra pillows and they were clean too. Very private yard even though it's right at the heart of the beach. I played my music and nobody bothered me. It was cold at night in September so we stayed in and watched movies- there are tons! Free! This place was booked way ahead of time for the summer so I hope to get my week next year.
