Filthy rooms: There are fleas in this establishment. My aunt and good friend were covered in bites. In our room, the linens were dirty, we had to buy new sheets to cover them and the sofa. Unpleasant management/staff: Upon checking out, the manager never asked us about our stay. Instead, I was addressed with a terse question.The manager later confronted... More

First visit with the new managers Jack and Sharon. Can't believe they made my stay better then previous visits. They are two great people that made our weekend so relaxed. I want to thank you both again and hope to see you real soon. You can't beat this place for just relaxing on the beach. Keep Jack working hard Sharon.

The bad news is....As you approach the pier the crowd get big, (too big for our tastes). Here's the good news - EVERYTHING ELSE!!! Given the opportunity stay at WILD WAVE!! Everything is a few minutes drive, (very few minutes) and the location cannot be beat!!! Now...Jack - Well, if you want to meet a pirate (doesn't smile much, but... More

Right on the beach! Large apartment sized rooms with fully stocked kitchen. Tiki bar and BBQ grill for cooking. The view from our room was breathtaking with lots of dolphins swimming every morning. Fantastic value for the money! We will be back!!!

We found this hotel by luck when planning a last-minute trip. Have to admit, we were a little skeptical when booking.....but when we arrived we were immediately impressed! A nice, old-fashioned, low-key gem where we expected only modern resorts. Located in a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle. Upon checking in, Jack made us feel right at home.... More

We found Wild Wave by chance and we loved our stay. Jack and Sharon were awesome! Nice, welcoming, helpful and as they promised....pretty much left us to our own pace! The room was great! Kitchen, bed and bathroom. Felt like home! The balcony to sit and watch the sunset was exactly what we needed. Yes you have to get your... More

After I read your review, I believe we were staying at The Wildwave at the same time. I can not agree with your review. (Labor Day Weekend) The rooms are not the Hilton, Hyatt or the Marriott but they are CLEAN quaint Beach Cottage Motiff. As far as supplies for the room, if you read the Check In/Check Out sheet...

Nice location by the beach..... But dirty apartments, crumbling down and not well equipped. Not enough toilette paper, paper towels or dishwasher liquid......you have to constantly keep asking for those goods to management.....leakage from the second floor into my bedroom because our friend took a shower in their bathroom......wi-fi did not reach our building.. And then to top it off....... More

Jack and Sharon, managers of the Wild Wave Resort, do what it takes to make you feel right at home. They keep a clean hotel, they make sure you are comfortable, have plenty to do...or are satisfied with doing nothing. But my favorite part of staying at the Wild Wave, and I'm an oft returning customer.....is the nightly meal. If... More
