Although it rained a lot during our three days stay, we had a great time at this hotel. The front desk staff was friendly and fun to deal with. Nice pool and hot tub. The room was a typical beach style unit with a nice size flat screen TV and relaxing private balcony sitting area. The bed and pillows were... More

The staff was great from the moment we checked in. Liz at the front desk was very kind and helpful. Room was neat and clean. Great mattress. Very short walk to the beach. Easy walk to restaurants and fun in town!

We stayed in the Horizon house at Waves resort for two nights. Positives: excellent proximity to the great beach with soft sand and big waves. Nice pool area with jacuzzi and waterfalls. Negatives: a run down motel with little care to its upkeep. Room was dark, dank and old. Outdated TV and appliances. Chipping paint, stains, and employees that do... More

The idea of ocean front to the waves and myself are a little different I now know. You can't beat the location, and the beach is delightful. The rooms could use an upgrade and some paint. But, very typical for a beach hotel. The store and cafe wasn't open the hours stated on the doors.. So don't plan on that!

We spent 3 nights a Waves Oceanfront Resort. This was the 2nd year we have stayed there. Waves is part of the Lafayette Hotel group which is one of the reasons we picked it last year. We have stayed many times at their other properties and have always found their hotels to be impeccably clean and very well run. Waves... More

I booked the week before and lucked out and got building C 1st floor which is right in front of the pool and beach walkway. In my opinion..... the best building ( although I think there are a couple ocean front views in E). Waves is your typical beach hotel. The room was clean and appeared recently somewhat updated. Nice... More

We stayed a week in August here in one of the West Surf Cottages. It was a pleasant week with good service from the staff. The distance was good from the local eateries and attractions on the main drag and the location on the beach was great. The only knock which was minor was the TV was not in real... More

We rented 76 West Surf one of the cottages, it was great! My almost two year old niece had the time of her life! My other niece had also never seen the ocean before we had a wonderful time. The kitchen was good and it saved a bit being able to eat some meals in. The best part of the... More

My family and I booked this place for our summer vacation based on the recommendation of an aquaintance. Unfortunately, we did not share the same enthusiasm. They booked us in the wrong room and when we immediately went and told them this. They didn't have another room to put us in. The room was very small and FILTHY!!! We ended... More

Waves is an ok place to stay. If you are looking for an ocean front property, with a pool and walking distance to the pier this is a good location. The rooms are average size but we didn't spend too much time in them. There is so much to do. My rating would have been higher if it weren't for... More
