We have stayed at the Margate each summer for more than 20 years. We love the Inn and the beach is great. Indoor and outdoor pools make it nice for kids even on a rainy day. The Beach Bar is great. You can get lunch and drinks there. Continental breakfast is free but you also have the option of a... More

I recently stayed at the Margate Resort, with my granddaughters, niece and sister. Check-in was a breeze, and could not have gone any faster. Our room was across the street from the main building, where the outside pool is located. The room was spacious, and clean. The housekeeping staff were AWESOME. Every request we had, extra towels, shampoo, etc. were... More

Another great week at the Margate > Always enjoy our time there! I guess the best thing to say is that it's "As advertised". Appreciate the new keyless entry as well as the Flat Screen TV, Fridge & Keurig that were added last year. Enjoy the Continental Breakfast and the Staff was personable and efficient.

Price was high since I was there over Timberman Triathlon weekend so that probably affected my review somewhat (i.e. room over $200 per night for 2 nights of the stay). Stayed across the street so not able to compare rooms except we had no lake view which would be nice. Room big and comfortable - bathroom seen better days with... More

I'm currently at the Margate Resort and the location, view, and deck bar are excellent. Food is good pub fare and reasonably priced. The staff is very good but the room cleaning takes a very long time. They do a great job considering the age of the resort. As others have said, the hotel and inn are dated and worn... More

Stains on carpeting, crack in sink, water marks on ceiling, some outlets not working, When walking in front door the slate was cracked and missing. Was clean enough but for the price was a big disappointment. Would not come back or recommend. Girl at front desk very pleasant.

Stayed 4 nights at this resort and was pleased. Our room had a view of the lake, I would highly recommend requesting lake side accommodations. The room was clean, however the toilet needed the handle jiggled in order to stop running. Buffet breakfast was satisfactory. Would definitely stay there again.
