We went for the girlfriend's weekend packge and most definitely did not get what we paid for and were shafted on top of that. First, we were put in the wing with very noisy construction in process bright and early almost every day of our stay, instead of the correct wing slated for this package. Aside from the noise; the...

The Golden Inn is a tired hotel that needs some serious updating. That being said, there was construction going on in one of the wings, so hopefully it is getting a much needed make-over. Entering the lobby you would never believe you were at the beach. The lobby reminds me of a hotel that caters to skiers and not beach... More

I've been bringing my business for a working retreat to the Golden Inn for years, and while most of the time, we've had a good experience, this year was our best year yet. The renovations in the Sandpiper room made for a very enjoyable experience within a room that we spent two whole days working in. The new state of... More

We are just back from a 2 day retreat for work at the hotel. We had a great time! The food was great and the staff unbelieveably nice and accomodating. They went above and beyond to make sure our group had everything they needed.

We were there this past weekend with a large group. We all had a fantastic time. The staff was extremely accommodating with many special requests our group had. The rooms were clean and spacious. We'd give this hotel very high marks! One constructive criticism I would offer: It would be helpful to keep different groups and parties on different floors... More

I came as part of a large group of families for as a special midwinter weekend getaway, and I have no words to describe the incredible experience my family and I had at the Golden Inn. I wish I can remember the names of all of the front desk people to thank them individually, but I do not. All I... More

Dear Jmt810, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. I am very sorry that you disliked the amount of children and families we had at the hotel during your stay. I understand this environment is not for everyone. Unfortunately, we are a family resort and this can some times be par for the course.... More
