Unbelievable personality and customer service from Tom Wilson and Jason carrier. We requested cards and they accommodated us after we had asked 2 other employees. Bike rentals were awesome. Can't wait to come back.

This was our third visit to the Madison Beach Hotel. All the rooms face Long Island Sound, so you get a nice water view with a balcony and chairs to take the breezes and listen to the seagulls. Everything is fresh and clean and comfortable. The decor is classic seaside - beadboard wainscoating, dark wood and white paint, with high... More

My husband and I spent a long weekend with our dog in one of their dog friendly rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The dog friendly rooms are located one the first floor, near a side exit door for quick bathroom trips. Even bags to pick up after your pooch are supplied. Great place for the humans too.... More

My college girlfriends and I have vacationed there 3 summers and won't return. While the location is good and rooms are comfortable, there is not the attention to detail we are accustom to. We actually experienced soiled sheets and comforter this year. Also, there were three weddings there during our 4-day stay and they overtook the hotel and the beach,... More

Dear SSStram - I'm sorry to hear about your disappointment with your recent stay. As you observed, it is prime wedding season and we typically have 2-3 receptions per weekend. To provide personal attention to our brides and to minimize impact on our hotel guests, we do not host more than one wedding per day. While many of our guests... More

We went here for lunch today. Nice valet parking. We were asked by hostess if we had reservations...which we didn't. She seemed annoyed by this. Told us there would be a 15 minute wait even though there were many empty tables. We sat at the bar while we waited. 3 people at the bar...and it still took the bartender 5... More

After our first stay at the hotel a week ago we decided to return on Monday for happy hour. Great view of the water. We sat outside and got outstanding service from Curtis. It was about 6:00 and he was busy but never missed a beat. He was friendly, professional and brought our drinks and apps quickly. Quick service without... More

Our daughter, grandson, my husband (in a wheelchair) and I stayed at this hotel two nights. The hotel is on the beach, the rooms face a beautiful shore line, the rooms are large, clean, comfortable and have balconies overlooking the beach. We swam, picnicked at the nearby State Park, enjoyed the lounge chairs provided by the hotel, ate dinner and... More

My husband and I went to your brunch on Sunday July 20,2014. We sat on the deck and enjoyed the most wonderful food and service. Our server was Lauren, she was pleasant and very professional. The view was breath taking, we watched a dog next door swim in the ocean. The weather was perfect, the food was perfect, the service... More

This is an absolutely beautiful hotel. It is very clean and has amazing views. We had a king size bed with a nice sized balcony overlooking the beach. The bathroom is also great, with a large shower and also a separate tub. There were bifold doors above the tub, so we could open them and still see the view outside.... More
