“Peace in Paradise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

This is a small, relaxed, casual place with updated furnishings that worked perfectly for us: Morning coffee, microwave and frig for anything else from the grocery store nearby, luggage carts for the elevator, sparkling pool and hot tub at just the right temperature, and a balcony overlooking the ocean. Grab hotel beach towels and ice from the machine on the way out the door to the private beach with umbrellas and chairs to do some body surfing and watch the sunset. The hotel was full for the 4 nights we were there in Sept, but we felt like we were alone in a lovely, quiet paradise. The indoor shower by the pool was perfect for a farewell dip in the ocean after checkout. Reasonable rates and friendly folks -- what could be better? A little vacation well worth the drive from Atlanta!

Room Tip: Enjoy the abundance of fresh seafood: Try the Clamdigger down the road. Biking and hiking are grea...

This was not our first choice of places to stay and we ended up booking two rooms the night before our stay. We were very pleasantly surprised. The lobby isn't elegant or spacious and it isn't a 5-star resort, but it certainly is very nice for the money. The rooms were very pleasant, the views were lovely, and shower we had was great! They provide complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas. We were up early the next day and saw them sweeping all around the pool, outdoor shower, and boardwalk going to the beach. Overall, it was very nice stay and I'd certainly go back.

Just returned from another pleasant stay at the Windjammer Inn. Been staying here every summer for nearly 10 years now, and always happy. The Windjammer is a family-friendly oceanfront hotel. Nothing fancy, just a real comfy beach hotel.
My title reflects an unpleasant moment this visit. The Windjammer provides a limited number of umbrellas and beach chairs for no charge - a bonus for families on a budget. The chairs are meant to share, not to hog. This year, for the first time, I found guests going out early in the morning, claiming a set of chairs and an umbrella by posting towels and other assorted paraphenalia, then leaving the beach for hours at a time - then claiming 'this is my chair' on return. Not friendly.
So do go, enjoy, and please share.

Room Tip: I like the 3rd floor. Great view of the ocean. A little sound sometimes from the pool area, but no...

My family and I just completed a vacation to Atlantic Beach. After booking with the Windjammer Inn, I read several unfavorable reviews that had me second guessing my choice. I am so glad that I went with my first choice!!! The Windjammmer is a beautiful hotel, the staff was friendly and the housekeeping was exceptional! A little remodeling of the furniture and bedding would be nice, but does not take away from the great experience. Pictures do not do justice to how amazingly beautiful the outdoor area is. Our room was on the second floor and we had a terrific view of the ocean. We visited AB last year and stayed at the Hampton Inn which is a few blocks away from the Windjammmer. The Hampton was nice, but it can't compare to the Windjammer. The Windjammer is our hotel of choice for all future vacations to AB!

We have been to this hotel four times now. The last time we bought a Groupon stay at another hotel and left to stay at The Windjammer. We always enjoy it there. We will stay again in two weeks. If you reserve a room early get one one the 3-5th floors, on the ends. The staff is friendly, and most important there is a great view of the ocean from the balcony. The rooms are clean and the hotel is situated reasonably close to the causeway over to the mainland. We have never had a problem at the hotel and have enjoyed our stay there. The walls are cement so we never heard anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as high up as you can get for a better view of the ocean.

I've been staying here at the Windjammer Inn with my family since I was approximately four! I'm eighteen now, and it seems like the more we come to stay the more things are remodeled and always kept up to date and the service and staff is always wonderful! The rooms are always super clean, with no speck of dirt anywhere. All rooms are oceanfront and are only a couple steps away from the sand. I recommended the Hotel to some other family members, and they absolutely fell in love also! It's starting to become a family tradition for us! We'll be visiting again with in the next few weeks! Cannot wait!! Thanks for all y'all do. :)
