“Our Favorite Since 1989!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

As the title states, we have been staying at the Seahawk since 1989. We've seen changes...some good, some bad over the years. However, in recent years the Seahawk has really ramped up their attention to their customers and their property, as well. A few years ago they started allowing pets which we were thrilled about. Admittedly, some guests do not feel the need to clean up after their dogs and that is a problem sometimes and just plain rude, but overall, allowing pets is a definite plus for many. This year when we arrived, we found they had added cornhole games and it appeared that the carpets in our room were very new. They have several gas grills available for those who choose to cook and there are plenty of hammocks and swings. I will say that the one drawback there is the Wi-Fi. The signal is extremely poor and even being two rooms away from the office did not give much of a signal...pages took 5 minutes to load in some instances, so I just gave up. There were folks in the office using their laptops there and hopefully, the signal was stronger in there. The people who tend to stay here are usually families and we've never had a problem with people being so rowdy they kept us awake at night. Kim, the manager is top notch and is extremely accommodating to her guests. A new item we discovered upon check-out today was starfish-shaped iced lemon cookies with an "S" iced onto them...all tied up nicely in a clear bag with ribbon and her business card attached! A nice touch! We always meet nice people when we come to visit and look forward to our trips each summer. There is a reason that people keep returning to the Seahawk year after year but don't book it expecting a 5-star resort because you'll be disappointed for sure. They offer clean, reasonable, safe and enjoyable facilities and if you know that going in, you will not be unhappy! Kudos to Kim and her team (front office, maintenance and housekeeping)...all very capable and very friendly! We'll be back in October, hopefully!

We started going to this hotel in 1996. We loved it for a decade. Thought we would try it again. But the rooms really need some serious updating. The carpet is dreadful. The bathrooms are original and very worn. The drapes are shredded and the furniture on the balcony was smothered in blackish mold. The sign out front says "WiFi" but after you check in you find that it's only in rooms close to the office. Get a Booster! My husband accidently used our key in the door for the room next to ours! Guess what? It worked! And that lady's room key worked on our room!! Not safe. The cleaning staff could use some pointers. And it is pet friendly. There is dog poop around the swings and hammocks. You have to watch the ground when walking. We were there 2 days and no one picked it up. Also check in is 1 Pm. We got there at 3 and were told to come back in an hour at 4:15. Sounds like I was unhappy. Never again! They did re-key the other rooms lock. I would hate to guess how many rooms have the same lock. Dangerous! How sad! But the view is great. $330 for 2 nights is tooo much! We won't be returning.

We spent 4 days here last summer and had a great time. All the rooms were oceanfront and had great views. The rooms were clean and comfortable and had all the character of an old timey beach property. (If you are looking for glitzy, then this is not the place for you.) The staff were wonderful. The pool area was great and there were grills and hammocks. It is also within walking distance to the fishing pier. We hope to return soon for another great beach getaway.

We stayed here for a few day's and loved it! The staff is so friendly and the rooms are comfortable, you can walk right out of your room and just a few yards put's you on the beach! We are planning another stay here this year, pet friendly rooms allow us to take our Black Lab.. Best deal for the money we have found yet!

Room Tip: All rooms are ocean front and beautiful views!

There is a limited choice of pet friendly accommodations on the Crystal Coast and the Seahawk was perfect for our needs. We were looking for an ocean view room that offered a good beach location and was dog friendly. The girls at the front desk were friendly and helpful with restaurant and activity suggestions. They warmly welcomed our dog when we checked in and he was lucky enough to even get a bone. The room was a little worn and older looking but it was clean. We loved the hammocks near the beach but have heard that it is difficult to get one during high season. The location is on a nice stretch of beach next to the Sheraton. This could be a good or a bad thing depending on the time of year. When we visited, the Sheraton was closed for renovations so it was quiet next door. We look forward to staying here again with our furry best friend.
