We return year after year because we bring our dogs to the beach, Dogs, not dog. Three dogs and they are all welcome every time. This is not an upscale hotel, it's a beachside inn and it is always clean and serves our needs well. We bring two large and one small dog and have never had a problem. Short... More

the seaside is quiet adequate for my vacation needs. very tidy, friendly helpful staff, cold a/c, nice outdoor pool, laundry room. while not "beachside", it's only one dune away. yes, this is an older facility, the furnishings have some dents and dings. but I felt safe and it met my cleanliness requirements. best value on the island.

This a cheap roadside motel that happens to be near the beach. That's not necessarily a bad thing. The basics are solid: cold AC, hot shower, comfy bed, reasonable price (for off-season), and beach-front access. However, there are no amenities beyond wifi, a mini-fridge, and a microwave. It's an old property and very bare-bones. You'll have to bring any creature... More

The front desk clerk was pleasant and friendly. Checking in was quick. I love the flip-flops on the keys. The motel room was clean, simple and spacious. A/C nice and frigid. Plenty of towels, soap and toilet paper. My only complaint it the showerhead being too low for me (I'm 5' 6"). The price was fair for my accommodations. I'm... More

So this one was hard to rate. I didnt want to give it a 2 star cause the place is really not poor. It does need alittle TLC. And Honestly these things could be corrected pretty easily. Both the bathroom door knob and the front door dead locked stuck. So I didnt ever want to close the bathroom door fully... More

Love this place. Can't wait until may 21-25. 2015. We stay here all the time. You can walk right down to the beach and if you stay in the condos upstairs you can see the ocean. It's right by mail marker 6 off the beach. And it's cheaper than the other hotels . You should try it. Good place to... More

Step out the door and your looking at the gulf. Just a short stroll to the waters edge. Nice rooms very affordable and has all you need. Been here several times and will return again. Have not found a better deal in this area. Come enjoy the convenience of being on the beachfront.

My husband and I made a last minute trip to Port A to look at some property. We decided to stay the night when I got sick. We had stayed at Seaside before and knew they would suit us as we were traveling with our small dog. When we checked in the clerk recommended a couple of restaurants that serve... More

We have stayed at the hotel/condo many times. We love to stay here because we can bring our kids with fur and you can get to the beach easily within walking distance. We stay in the condos. We were very impressed that since our last visit they replaced the carpeting with tile. The condos are very spacious. They have stove,... More
