Although this is not a hotel I would normally stay at it meets my needs. Furniture and decor are dated, however understandable based on the fact that this hotels mainstay visitor is the college spring break crowd in March of each year. Clean and spacious. The balcony is the best part of the room, fantastic view of the white sugary... More

Can hear dogs barking on one side and people yelling on the other. No rest. Very late check in. The view was the best with the ocean roaring. Alot of restaurants around. The food court was closed. Could not find an ice machine.

She took care of it with no problems. Our room was clean and very spacious. We had a toilet issue while we were there and they took care... More

Went down for a couple of nights between Christmas and New Years. Nice stay for the price. Clean, quiet room directly on the beach. Staff was very friendly. Good location within walking distance of bars and restaurants.

Nice staff, quiet (in off season), DOG friendly up to 2 dogs, no weight limit, $25 fee. A good place to spend a night. We decided to drive down a day early, so we needed a last minute, one night, pet friendly spot until our condo was ready the next day. This place was perfect. Cheap, clean, ocean front, and... More

We went to the bar, Rusty Anchor and the wine was old and they were out of beer. Not a very happening place during the off season. Great place to... More

We stayed here as it was the host hotel for the 2014 Ironman. We had read that the hotel was under renovation, so when we checked in, we asked for one of the rooms that was completed. We were told that all of the rooms were done and that the renovation was complete. If that is true, then there is... More

When we stayed at the boardwalk beach resort hotel everything was great. Right on the beach, walking distance to pineapple willys and spinnakers. The room was 2 double bed room non smoking pool view 3rd. floor and it was very nice. No complaints at all with the room. absolutely worth the money. Will definitely will stay again!

We stayed at this hotel overnight 10/25. When making the reservation a GULF VIEW was requested. We are given a room on the 1st floor with a wonderful view of the tent set up behind the hotel. It took 45mins for a different room to be located and made available. After we checked out on 10/26 we were about 2hrs... More
