This was our first trip to the Laughing Horse and we will be back. This is not luxury accomodation but it is clean, laid back and fun. Perfect for the beach. The bed was super comfortable. We went with a group of people and rented three properties. The ktichens had everything we needed. It is very dog friendly and we... More

We found the Lodge on line and decided to check it out. No disappointment whatsoever!!! It's a somewhat eclectic, Kitschy little place, so if you want 5 star accomodations, fuggedaboutit! But. it's Clean, quiet, and very laid back. And the owners/managers and staff are great. Plus, it's just a few blocks from the beach, and if you have been to... More

Very nice staff, we stayed in Crazy Horse which was super cute and had everything we needed. The only thing "off" was the coffee we tried to make in the pot they had tasted weird (we brought our own coffee from home) but it was no problem as the Stripes nearby has awesome coffee. Quick trip to the beach from... More

We stayed in #7 and it was perfect. The cabin was fun, quirky and best of all CLEAN. These cabins are older but in good repair and the bright beachy colors give the whole place a very nostalgic feel. MaryAnn, who was working the front desk was a delight and felt like family. She gave us towels and bowls for... More

This was the perfect place to stay at for my daughter, two g-kids and myself for a weekend get-away. The staff was very nice and accommodating. It was very clean and everything worked perfectly. It was nice to wake up and not have to go out for breakfast as it was equipped with everything for us to cook there. My... More

Very nice folks, nice outdoor space, nice outdoor chairs. Room smelled funky. Old flooring, torn out door screens, window air conditioners completely rotted out on the outside. Fairly rundown. Don't know how it got such terrific reviews.

We stayed in one of the "efficiency" lodges, which is perfect for 2 people. Staff is welcoming and always ready to assist you with anything you may need. Lodge was very clean and well stocked with GOOD appliances and dishes/cutlery. The A/C window unit was a bit loud at night, so I suggest packing some ear plugs, if you are... More

This was our second visit to Laughing Horse and we enjoyed ourselves - again! We came for my husband's 50th birthday and brought along three of our dogs. I really do appreciate being able to do that at an affordable rate! Other reviewers are right, it's clean with fun colors/decorations, management is helpful and friendly. We stayed in a smaller...

My fiance took me here as a surprise for Valentine's Day Weekend. It was such a cute place and the location was excellent, right near the beach. Accomodations were small, brightly colored and clean. Enjoyed it and would stay there again!

This is not luxury accommodations by any means, but it is in a good location and kept clean. This place has a funky rustic quality to it, so If you are used to staying only in posh hotels and don't like roughing it a little, this may not be for you. The management is very friendly. Good value if you... More
