We stayed at the lakefront building. This was our 2nd time at this property. The rooms are large but probably could use a makeover in the near future. Perfect location to all the attractions in the area. Staff is excellent and friendly. Sunsets are outstanding. Will certainly return again.

Our room was clean and comfortable, the pools and hot tub were nice and clean. Folks working at the resort were all very nice. My only complaint was the included continental breakfast. It wasn't much unless you like bread. You can get hot breakfast for $7 bucks, still unhealthy breakfast food, but honestly, it should have been included in the... More

We stayed in the INN building on the second floor across the street from the main building I found it to be pretty much as I had read about in reviews - the rooms are older looking (ours looked out at back side of Shaws) but it was clean and the maid service was good -- the outside pool was...

The rooms are large and clean. The staff is friendly. The free breakfast is simple and limited in items, but is fresh and plenty. The beach bar is nice, but very busy in the late afternoon and early evening. They could use a little extra staff during those hours. My only complaint is the water at the beach has some... More

We spent a great week with our daughters, son-in-law and 5 grandkids. Be prepared to enjoy amazing sunsets and lakeside views to-die-for. Staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and adequate, the mattresses could use updating and the room with two beds have only full size beds not Queens (if that matters to anyone) The breakfast included with... More

I really enjoyed the stay here. We were looking for something affordable to do a little getaway and this was it. Great location, in the center of everything and easily accessible to other areas. The hotel has it's own lake/beach area, indoor and outdoor pools and an outdoor bar/food area. Continental breakfast was good and you had the option to... More

Friendly staff & clean rooms. Loved the beach area and the patio with the bar. The service at the restaurant/bar was great for dinner, but the food was just average. The view was excellent. I enjoyed sitting outside. This was our first time and we will be staying again.

The Margate at one point in life must have been a gorgeous hotel with a beautiful location. The location is still beautiful the beach bar is the best thing going for this hotel. The inside is dated and filthy, the hotel is obviously generating revenue. Here is a thought investment some money in the hotel. Acknowledge guests and their complaints.

This used to be a nice hotel. We stayed on the Inn side and it was obvious that they haven't put any money into the place in years. It smelled moldy, and the place was just generally run-down. Not to mention the ceiling creaked anytime anyone above us moved as if there was only a layer or plywood separating the... More

Nice location. Very dated rooms and amenities. Rooms in Inn are probably pushing 40 years of original baths and coverings. However, 2 pools including indoor are nice options. Staff was very friendly and cordial.
