Our ocean view room was cute and clean but very small. The furniture is kinda tired and not very comfortable. Although the bed was very comfortable. I would find it very difficult to stay here with more than two people. My husband and I were tripping over each other just trying to get dressed in the so called bedroom. Which... More

Dear uofmlady, Thank you for your comment on Tripadvisor. I'm glad you found the bed comfortable and enjoyed the view from your Ocean View Jr. Suite. I'm sorry to learn you did not enjoy the seating option on the patio, pool, or balcony. We do have some lovely seating and table in our lobby where you may have been more... More

Property itself isn’t bad but what they provide for such high rate is absolutely rip off. Staff can do with some training on how to handle customers and present themselves. I had a carbon monoxide device mounted to the wall that kept going off all night and the following day. After three to four attempts of going in an doubt... More

There is beach access with towel service and a small heated pool and whirlpool which our kids enjoyed every night. Cant wait to... More

This is the cleanest, most complete accommodations on the coast. It has all the amenities you would expect from a first class hotel and more. The pool and hot tub are beautiful and easily accessible. There is a nice continental breakfast complete with bagels, muffins, fruit salad and juice.

Dear Walter M, Thank you for your post on Tripadvisor. The Beach House is a great destination with all the comforts of home and the service of a World Class hotel all rolled into one.

This was a very nice place to stay and enjoy the Bay. The hotel staff was helpful, rooms were older but updated and very comfortable and clean. The Pool and Jacuzzi was nice as it overlooked the bay and was kept in great condition. The wine and cheese hour and complimentary coffee / Danish was very nice as well.

The upgrade to ocean front suite was well worth it. Fog horn was pleasant. Located along a coastal hiking path - great people watching. Continental breakfast very ample. Normal check out at noon was great. Location perfect. Bathroom lighting was terrible for putting on makeup. Only other complaint would be the private balconies are not shared, but certainly not "private"... More

Room was adequate. Definitely not amazing for the price (almost $500 per night). We were unfortunate enough to have a room RIGHT next to the lobby/front desk- where they serve the continental breakfast. We heard dishes clinking all morning both mornings we were there while we tried to sleep. When we left our room, we saw why... they had a... More

What a great place to stay. Friendly and helpful staff. Spotlessly clean and spacious room. Our room didn't overlook the beach as most of the rooms do, the small patio was the only thing which was a little disappointing. Lovely calming decor. The room had a mini kitchen which useful, two TV's and a fireplace. This morning after a swim... More

Dear alikatt123, Thank you for your comments on Tripadvisor. Our rooms are wonderfully appointed with all the comforts of home.

The staff was very friendly and attentive. Room was clean and well maintained. View and beach access were great. The Romance package was a good deal with a very respectable bottle of champagne and 2PM check out. Overall worth a return trip.
