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

We checked in last Friday morning for the weekend with 2 teenagers, Everyone we dealt with from the valet to the hotel staff was very accommodating. We loved our room which was spacious and very clean. We ate several meals at the hotel and the food was amazing, including the sushi which is a favorite of ours. The drinks were... 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

I would have given this hotel a much higher rating, but for the way you handle the unexpected and how you took no responsibility for a faulty hotel fire alarm system. Between the hours of 3:30 and 5:30 AM, we were awakened four times by the hotel fire alarm! The first two times guests evacuated the hotel. The first evacuation... More

Sat at the bar for dinner on a Friday night. Got a chicken caesar salad. The caesar salad part was delicious!! Great dressing, great greens, great accoutrements. The chicken was dry as hell. Next time I would order it with shrimp or just plain.

My wife and I just completed a four day stay at the Windrift and had a most wonderful time from arrival until our departure. Our Junior Suite was nicely decorated and very comfortable for the two of us. We are beach people and it was so convenient being so close to the beach. We enjoyed sitting on our balcony in... More

We spent the 4th of July Weekend at the Windrift. We have stayed here in the past and enjoyed it. This weekend - not surprisingly, it was very crowded with lots of action. The hotel has undergone a facelift and made very nice improvements to the entire property. They have a new zero entry pool with a hot tub, and... More
