The beds are comfortable and clean and we managed to get a good night's sleep even during bike week. Con's: The resort needs some serious maintenance. Our balcony... More

Large pool area,small store across street and Scooby's next door. In house restaurant as well. Will always be my first choice to book.

I really don't know where to start. They call this "a resort"? This by far is no resort by definition! The parking is horrendous! Never seen anything like it plus the characters hanging around on the ground level of the parking lot were extremely shady and quite scary. My husband, two teenage boys, and I went to the beach for... More

Dear 4onMckay, We regret that you were displeased with the accommodations offered at the Reef. As mentioned multiple times, the Reef is an older hotel but we strive to offer clean accommodations. For future reference, often the hotel General Manager will work with a dissatisfied guest to try to relocate them to another room, or allow for check out if... More

It definitely needs a major overhaul when it comes to décor! However, it was clean and had most of the amenities that larger, more expensive hotels have... The front desk folks were nice and the housekeepers were nice and did a good job. The view was beautiful - probably beautiful from any of the rooms!

I will start with the staff was extremely friendly and they have a beautiful lobby...that's where the beauty stops!! The price was great, but you definitely get what you pay for with this place.

Upon arrival the room is clean enough, the view is nice, ( who doesn't love oceanfront ?) And the kitchen was useful ... A "beautiful" suite it was not. That however was the least of my issues as its vacation and I hadn't planned on spending much time in the suite anyways. So after "housekeeping" NEVER tidied up or made... More

Great deal on the room but customer service was lacking. I had to move rooms due to a maintenance issue in the room. We understood and were willing to move rooms. We were offered no help from the staff. We got an extra hour for check out for "our troubles". I will not stay there ever again.

Dear BB0803, Thank you for staying at the Reef and for mentioning the value for oceanfront accommodations. Despite our best efforts to insure that items are in good working order, from time to time, things break. I apologize that a maintenance issue required that you move to another room. More

I just returned from a vacation with my 7 year old son and my best friend. We stayed 3 nights on the 12th floor of The Reef. The oceanview private balcony in our room was one of the greatest things during our vacation. If we were in the room, we were hanging on the balcony. The room was decent and... More
