Motel conjures up seedy images in my mind but this place was clean, comfortable, cozy, and cute. The staff was friendly at check in and check out. It's not right on the beach but it's about a block walk... More

The service was welcoming and friendly, the stain glass on the door (and I'm a stain glass fan) along with the natural wood was proof... More

Our room was very clean and homey with wood paneling and extra touches, folding of the linens and soft robes to put on after relaxing in our own large jacuzzi tub, also salt water taffy in candy dish:) Our bed was very comfortable which is so important to us! Beach is right across the street and the casino was within... More

This motel is very unique and unlike any other you will find on the coast. Not only are the grounds extremely well kept, the rooms are all tastefully decorated with individual charm and character. The service is fantastic and the rooms are always clean and welcoming. I have lodged at Whistling Winds a number of times and have yet to... More

My main complaint was horrible cell service and wifi that seemed pretty hard to find unless you were outside, but maybe that was just our unit. and the pillows, it was really hard to get any sleep with those pillows,...
