We have stayed at the Windrift on many occasions - just our family and even in larger groups when we rented multiple units. Our stays have been of consistently high quality. We have stayed in individual hotel rooms and have rented a condo that had a fantastic view. Will stay there again.

After 30 years, finally spent a weekend with three other college friends. We stayed in the four bedroom condo. The interior was beautiful-all re-done with new furniture, appliances and VERY comfortable beds with plenty of pillows and linens. Check in was a breeze. We did dine off property but had drinks/snacks in the Tiki bar--lots of fun, but it sure... More

First we stopped here to eat. Sushi was good. Old bay fries were just okay. The lobster grilled cheese was amazing. The kale Cesar salad was fresh and very filling. Upstairs bars have a great view. We stayed at the night here too. Rooms were very nice. Well done remodel. Perfect spot to go to the beach. They put chairs... More

My review is only based on dinner at the more formal restaurant.We had dinner there a couple of weeks ago with a group of 13 people.I must admit that I was a little concerned about what the quality of the food would be, because it it was soooo busy! I was so pleasantly surprised everyone in our group raved about... More

I stayed here this past weekend for a 1 night bachelorette party (sat night). The hotel is the nicest in the area and I would definitely come back. Perks: large room with balcony, comfortable beds, clean pool area, clean pool towels, drink/food service poolside and beach chairs for guests provided at the beach. The only 2 cons were that in...

We haven't stayed for 1-2 nights at the shore before because the choices are limited to cheesy motels. We saw the wind rift last year and decided to try it. Overall it was an unexpected pleasure. More like a resort than a motel. But priced accordingly. Very nice update with a great location. They've made wonderful use of the outdoor... More

Was there for happy hour and ordered a small pizza, 4 sushi rolls, and 2 cocktails. $ 80.00 was the total. The sushi rolls were double the price as normal and half the size. Pizza was 10" at best and tasted horrible. The drinks were watered down. The extremely young staff were rude and more concerned with chit chatting and... More
