Ok. No it's not directly on the beach but who cares? It's right across the street and the views are amazing! My boyfriend and I stayed on the 21st floor in a 1 bedroom. This was a huge condo that fit our needs and then some! It's clean, quiet and overall very nice. Updated appliances and comfy bed. The view... More

We found the reception staff to be unapproachable, rude and miserable, and this really let the hotel down. Either the staff were lacking in customer care training, or they didn't like the job, in which case they should consider alternative employment. The staff in the market/bistro on site were very friendly and helpful. The apartment was nice and spacious. We... More

Was super excited about my first time to the ocean, was even more excited when we arrived to our destination. We have 5 kids and rented the 2 bedroom condo. Our youngest (6) slept on the couch to be closer to us and the others slept in the Bedroom and Bunk Beds. Very up to-date and nice. We were able... More

My family and I visited Laketown Wharf for two celebratory reasons: the kids were going back to school the following week and I'd just landed a fantastic job. The condo we were in was amazing. It was very up-to-date and clean. We rented a 1 bedroom unit. I am glad we did not rent the two bedroom because this place... More

Stayed 10 days in a 2 bedroom + bunk room condo. We were there for USFA World Series. Room was clean and nice but not great. Needs some updating. We normally stay on the beach but stayed here because this was where team was staying. Only negatives were 1 not being on the beach. Only a 5 minute walk. 2... More

Waited over 38 minutes for the elevator to go down to the beach only to be packed in there like sardines with NO air. Then had to wait another 43 minutes for my son & daughter-in-law to make it down because I took the 2 grandsons on the 1st elevator that we could possibly squeeze in on. Leave your beach... More

Booked this hotel last minute, happy with choice. Excellent for large family, stayed in 2 bedroom suite. Comfortable beds, great AC, spectacular views from front and back. Loved kitchen with full size fridge. Large balcony facing ocean was huge plus. Needed more time to explore, so many pools, activities for kids and beach just across the street. Only gripes would...

Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for your late check in. Sundays are really not that busy normally. Mostly busy with departures but this Sunday we had a lot of arrivals as well which made it difficult to have all units cleaned by 4pm due to circumstances.

I would like to start off by saying is that Laketown Wharf is a beautiful property w/ spacious condos & several amenities. It's just a shame that it is apparently being run by HORRIBLE mgmt.
