Awesome place to stay! Has a beautiful view of the ocean, very nice well kept pool, friendly and helpful staff and a great location! Will definitely stay again!! Would suggest better chairs on the balcony and more than just a two seat couch in sitting area of the kitchenette.

This hotel is the perfect beach hotel. Right on the beach with private balcony and kitchenette. We were there for three nights. The only complaint we had was the lady that worked the breakfast was not friendly, never smiled and acted like she didn't want to be there at all. They only serve breakfast from 7:00-9:00. I walked in a... More

I booked a room here and found out AFTER that it was for bunk beds across the street. I can understand being across the street in over flow but who ever heard of bunk beds in a hotel? Especially if the hotel didn't mention them on this site. Seriously? I didn't even know that this was a thing. Then to... More

We wanted to go south and find some sunshine and warm weather but didn't want to drive all day. We have always traveled with our kids and their friends to pcb and needed a condo but this was just a couples getaway and we weren't staying Sat to Sat so we didn't go with a condo. We were very pleased,... More

There is no beach access for handicap/elderly people. Not only on the hotel property, but also on the street beach access next to the hotel. The hotel has 10 steep steps going to the beach, the street access has 14 steep steps. The hotel pool is accessible for handicap and elderly, but not the beach. There are RENTAL beach chairs...

We were looking for a unit that was on the beach with a kitchen so we wouldn't have to spend too much money on food... WE FOUND IT! We had what was called a King Suite - It wasn't anything fancy but the kitchen was functional... there was plenty of room in the unit and it was extremely clean! The... More

The hotel itself is in a great location right o the beach. All rooms are oceanfront with private balconies. The parking lot had limited space but they did provide for parking across the street in an empty lot. The continental breakfast was nothing special with no hot food and limited options. There was yogurt, two types of cereal, muffins, mini... More

Normally I take my family to Orlando for spring break but this year I wanted a change of scenery so decided on the beach. But resort was in a good location near restaurants and right on the beach. The continental breakfast was simply that; nothing major but it was filling and fresh. The pool was clean, the jacuzzi is too... More

I stayed at the Beach Comber Last year the same now, Spring break. My reason for booking this year, was because of this hotel and the convenience, comfort, and hospitality that i received. I did not come with family,due to my children's spring break being pushed back, and the room being booked already, but there were so many families there... More
