We were here for a quick escape from the cold weather. Great location, friendly staff, clean rooms, bikes, books and videos available anytime and overall relaxed atmosphere made this a perfect weekend. Easy parking, short walking distances to shops/eating and the beach right out your hotel door were nice extras!

Our room was clean, charming, efficient, and fun. Scott,(proud owner) was welcoming,helpful, and accomodating and his choice of staff is a true reflection of his... More

We just finished up a 5 day stay at the Riptide, and we couldn't have been happier. The Riptide is right on the beach. Bikes, beach towels, beach chairs, etc. are all available for the guests to use at no extra cost. Also, the guy who runs the place is a nice guy and always willing to help. This is... More

December 15 and 16, 2008 We were originally booked at another hotel (terrible) which was just steps from the Riptide Oceanfront Hotel. During a walk along the boardwalk we saw this hotel with a vacancy sign. The housekeeper was cleaning one of the rooms so I went up to her and asked if I could see the room. She was... More

What a great family experience!!! Scott and Veronica were outstanding hosts to myself, Wife, and 3 small children!!! There were toys for the kids, beach chairs, and bikes available. The Tiki Bar was always filled with locals who were all extremely friendly. 3 days was not long enough --- we will be back!!!

We stayed for the weekend and what a great time we had. Clean rooms, updated and very friendly staff. Scott and Veronica are some of the most accomodating people we have ever met on vacation. They have a fun little Tiki Bar with local entertainment playing right there on the beach. Beautiful setting and we can't say enough about the... More

Our vacation at The Riptide compared only to our honeymoon! This was like having our own cottage right on the beach. We stayed for 4th of July Weekend and ended up staying another night because we just didn't want to go home. Scott, the owner, and his team instantly made us feel welcome and very comfortable.
