We have been staying at the Clam Digger for about 20 plus years on and off. While this is an older place, they do keep up. It is far from fancy but it is our place of choice because. . . . .1. The location is A-1. Every room has a small, PRIVATE, balcony looking at the Atlantic Ocean! How... More

What it has: clean and adequately furnished rooms, each one with a balcony and a direct ocean view; a decent restaurant; a bar (with a pool table!); an outdoor pool & hot tub; beach chairs and umbrellas set up for you a la Riviera; free wifi; and reasonable prices. What it doesn't have: a bathroom of usable size; a functional... More

My husband and I have traveled from Charlotte to Atlantic Beach many times in the past mostly because of the beautiful water and quiet, old time beach vibe. This is the first time we have stayed at the Clamdigger, and we were very satisfied. The hotel had a lot of amenities. The restaurant was good for breakfast, you could rent... More

If you like simple, clean, with all amenities right on a clean beach then this place is for you. If you are looking for updated and fancy then you may not like it here. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are clean, the tv works, and the view is fabulous. Friendly staff. I would prefer if the entire hotel be... More

We've vacationed at this property many times in the past but this recent visit was our first in 13 years. After being away for so long, you can't help but wonder if things will be as nice as you remembered. I'm happy to report that our stay was wonderful from beginning to end! Our room was clean, the beach and... More

I booked this reservation before leaving work for a last minute get away. Upon coming home, I realized that my other half had already booked another hotel and for a much better price. I immediately called to cancel our reservation and was told that I would be charged for a full night because my cancellation was less than 48 hours... More

The Clam Digger has a great location and every room is ocean front. It was so relaxing to sit on our balcony and enjoy the view at the end of a long day. Our room rate was very reasonable (we stayed after Labor Day). We were only there for one night, so did not have a chance to try the... More

Some negative reviews almost kept us away. So glad we came anyway. Everyone was so nice. Our room and the rest of the hotel were very clean...yes, a tad outdated but who cares. Our view on the fifth floor was amazing! A nice surprise to find the mini fridge in our room! It's just what we hoped for in our... More

Negative comments: 1) the staff at the front desk or other areas (restaurant, outside little bar) could be more welcoming. They don't seem to enjoy their work. A smile is free so I would suggest to their manager that a pep talk about customer service. 2) breakfast was plain tasting. Coffee is not included, so at first hand the 4,95... More

We've been coming to this hotel for about 15 years, when it was a Ramada Inn. Not much has changed. As noted in other reviews, it's a little dated. The flat screen TVs are a relatively recent addition. The bathroom is tiny. But the breakfast and lunch specials at $4.95 can't be beat, especially since they don't skimp on the... More
