This hotel has a lot of potential--the view is amazing from the limited number of ocean view rooms or the sitting area nearby. The beach was beautiful and clean. We were with a group so saw several different rooms--ocean view was great best on the 1st floor because the area behind the room opened up to an expanse of grass.... More

I don't want to leave. I want to stay here the rest of my life. The Suite we have is beautiful and so comfortable. The beach is gorgeous. Absolutely love it here. The staff was very accommodating and helpful.

This hotel was recommended by friends who were getting married on the beach near here. I first read previous reviews before booking and they were not good! Many previous reviews suggested we get the Ocean Front rooms that were right on the lawn not 20 feet from the ocean, next to the pool. There are 8 of them, four regular... More

Friendly staff, short walk to beach, amazing sunsets, & enjoyable pool, with a beautiful beach and short walk to the beach! Eat at Kathryn's and Riverside Steak & Seafood fir dinner, also Jordan's for fried seafood and even a great homemade cheeseburger! Our second time here, not our last, great prices all year!

We stayed here for 2 nights the third week of August. It was very nice. We had the standard room - suite 204 - and we had no complaints. The room was spacious, clean, and cool. We had no problem with the A/C, as others have experienced. Other have also talked about the walls being paper-thin, but we never heard... More

Rooms are clean and spacious, pool is clean, beach is beautiful! Staff is friendly and always checking to make sure you are a happy visitor to this nice getaway along the coast! The only minor issue was the ice machines were having trouble meeting demands, but it was over 90 degrees that weekend. :)

For those wanting to have a wedding here, this is next to an RV park! Also, the courtyard is muddy, and they won't allow you to put down hay. My shoes are ruined. If I had worn a maxi dress, my dress would have been ruined too. This was the worst hotel I've ever stayed it, and it was way... More
