I'm always a bit leery when traveling alone to a new hotel. No worries here. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful, the room spacious and immaculate, the view wonderful. My friends, who were traveling with their jobs were staying at another (pricier) hotel, were impressed & picked up Sun Viking info for their next trips. I would not hesitate... More

I chose Sun Viking because other reviewers said it was a great place for families. My three grandchildren, ages 13, 11 and 3, loved the pool's slide. The older two liked the close proximity to the beach also. There were activities each day for the kids. Our accommodations had two queen size beds plus another room with kitchen and sofa... More

Staff great as always. They remember us every year. Rooms are perfect. Look forward to the next time that we get to go. Even though my teen no longer wants to participate in kids activities, we watched some of them and they have several new activities to occupy their time and have fun at.

We checked in and asked how many children where with us. We had one child and they gave us a sun viking coloring book, pack of crayons, and an activity schedule. Our room was beach view with a big balcony and perfect view of the sunrise. We loved using the baby pool, water slide, and children's playground all on site.... More

One of the nicest compliments we can receive is to have a guest say they highly recommend us, thank you. I was happy to read that you and your family loved our amenities. I agree, our waterslide is very popular along with all our complimentary family activities; encouraging family fun is one of our major goals. I am also glad... More

First off the view from the room was spectacular! We stayed on the 6th floor in the tower. The room was very clean and plenty of space for 6 of us. Full size fridge was nice so we could stock groceries. Kids enjoyed the outdoor pool with the waterslide and also the indoor pool when the sun became intense. The... More

It was nice to read that this guest and their family enjoyed their stay at the Sun Viking Lodge, thank you! One of the most important things for us as owners is to encourage the family vacation experience.

First I would like to thank this guest for taking the time to write such a nice review and for raking us so high. As I read your comments, I was the one who was pleasantly surprised!

Let me start by saying that I am very picky about where I stay. I usually only stay at Marriott or Hilton just because I know what to expect there.

Hotel staff was rude and unaccomating. Chose to ignore problems rather than resolve them. Appears to be a shoddy run down motel posing as a hotel. For a hotel on the beach, we expected to be situated...not on the highway. Put our room right on highway 90. We listened to cars roar by at midnight due to poor building management.... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you were unhappy with your room location. As in most motels or hotels, there are few rooms that are available that do not have the most desirable locations. This holds true for us as well. Whether booking directly with us, booking on our website or booking through a travel site, we have... More
