Just stayed one night in a standard double. Front desk was friendly and the hotel was very clean and well lit. Room was also very clean and the beds were some of the best I have slept in. We did use the pool which was very well maintained although a little cold for an indoor pool. Hot tub was hot... More

Stayed here one night for a wedding. They were very accommodating in letting us get into our room early as we were going to a wedding nearby. The room was lovely. The breakfast the next morning was far better than expected. Everything was hot and constantly replaced. If you are going to a wedding at Wood Winds, this is a... More

Finding this hotel at the last minute, I was not real sure what it would be like. When we arrived on Saturday morning, we inquired at the front desk about leaving our luggage in the porter room as we were traveling to the Coast Guard Academy to visit a family member. The staff was more than happy to accommodate us.... More

Pleasantly surprised at the value I got at this property. My room was spotless (had a fridge/ microwave/coffee maker) and included Bath and Body Works amenities. Breakfast was included and there was everything imaginable. Initially, I had an issue with accessing the internet, Julie, the front desk receptionist, immediately help me resolve it. I did not use the pool, but... More

I stayed here on a business trip. I found I needed a CF Card reader to download some photos and did not have one with me. The staff located a Best Buy nearby and provided written directions on how to get there. They seemed eager to help which is rare in many cases nowdays. Also the room was clean and... More

We visited family in the area and were delighted to find this hotel. Clean and neat room. Perfect location for us. We dined with family, but there were several restaurants nearby. Wi-Fi was free and good. Breakfast was very crowded--actually no place to sit and they were out of eggs; however they had pancakes, cereal, muffins etc. etc. Will definitely... More

Very clean all around and actually I was in the elevator which was carpeted on Sunday when I arrived and the carpet was filthy and I thought I wonder why... More

Was down for a family reunion & stayed here because of the reviews. Room was GREAT. Love the nautical theme. Unfortunately my negative comment is that the pool area had 2 young boys whose dad was busy working out & not watching his obnoxious kids who were not considerate of others.

After leaving the Baymont Suites down the road, this place was a slice of heaven. The front desk went out of their way to get us a room and salvage our weekend. Very friendly staff. The room was clean and fresh. We felt comfortable and safe here unlike at the other place.
