My daughters and I were going to be heading to central Virginia from Ohio to visit friends and I decided we should leave 4 days early and drive out to the beach first. I didn't tell my daughters we were going to the beach, so when we arrived, the front desk staff played along when I sent them to the... More

we had a one bedroom suite that was really clean comfy and a wonderful view of the Christmas lights and ocean from the looks of the place it was recently renovated or completely new. The only downside about the property was the on site parking was really limited but the valet service was outstanding. The room was just perfect, the... More

From check in and all throughout our stay our time at this hotel was second to none!! There was only one draw back and that was not being informed prior to our trip of the additional $60 hold placed on my credit card at check in for incidentals only because I wasn't prepared for that, but that was taken care...

Stayed for a few days between Christmas and New Years. Loved the location. Walked in the room to an overwhelming wet dog smell. Not owning a dog ourselves, this was nauseating. The front desk gave us a can of Lysol from the valet guys and some air freshener sticks. Barely helped. If they charge $100 sanitation fee to folks who... More

This was by far the worse hotel experience I have ever had. The problems arose before we even arrived. I reserved 2 rooms at the non-refundable rate 3 weeks before my trip. I waited a week and the money never came out so I called. 1 week later, they returned my call, and said "so your message said you wanted... More

Awesome location. Off season prices are pretty competitive, and THE place to stay on the beach with a dog. Rooms a bit worn and could use some updating (actually really worn - almost yucky). If you don't mind the possible threat of things falling from the above balconies, the second floor rooms are the "secret" here. Huge balconies with plenty... More

We were staying at this hotel in July 2014 for 10 days. My biggest huge complain about this hotel is their AC system. I don't know who construct this building, but I wish that person such kind of AC in his bedroom, whole year around, year by year. Imagine that you sleep in one room with working airplane, it was...

Nice size room overlooking the beach, Boardwalk and ocean. The room is nice and clean but furniture could use an upgrade....very uncomfortable. The hotel staff is very friendly and accommodating. Good places to eat, within walking distance, and we couldn't ask for a better time anywhere.

Spent Columbus Day Weekend at this property, while attending a wedding nearby. Beautiful, large room with small outdoor balcony overlooking ocean. Well-appointed room and kitchen. Very good breakfast buffet. Pets on premise which surprised me but we had no issues. Parking is 2-3 blocks away (except very small lot in front) but valet is efficient. Small indoor pool and wonderful... More

Nice place to go for a good size ocean front room. After Labor day, prices were great. Not sure I would pay the going rate during summer. Room was nice and clean. Staff, friendly and helpful with parking (valet), parking lot very small.
