This is a fantastic property with a top notch staff. We had a recent family reunion here and everything they promised - they delivered. From the rooms, to the restaurant, to the catered food and party room AND especially the bar; was fantastic. Their Customer Service was outstanding.
Thanks especially to the front desk crew and Ms Jennifer for making our reunion a success!

Room Tip: All of the rooms we had were in great shape.

During our time of bereavment, your staff went out of their way to see to our comfort. Jennifer Hayden Schel was available to see to our every need. Our family ages were 8 yrs. to 77 years, some with special needs. All our needs were handled quickly and efectivly. They were a great comfort to us all.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice, quite, clean with easy access.

Very clean and well managed hotel, my grandchildren loved the pool for 3 day stay. Close to restaurants and shopping mall and Seaside boardwalk where the kids enjoyed the arcade. The only negative was the breakfast buffet was not included. If you have to pay for breakfast you should have a waitress and menu to order what you want, not just the typical buffet stuff that is usually complimentary. But there are plenty of diners and IHOP nearby. The staff was very friendly and efficient.

Nancie,

Thank you for your feedback, it does mean a great deal to us. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and that your grandchildren got to enjoy the indoor pool.

The hotel does have packages that do include breakfast but I was sorry to hear you were not able to order ala carte. I will discuss with our food and beverage team about possible changes in the future.

My husband and I recently stayed with our 6yr old daughter for two nights and from check in to check out everything was just awesome! From the desk service to the cleanliness and comfort of the room! Anything we asked they accommodated without hesitation. Our daughter loved the indoor pool, and the facilities were very clean. I didn't hesitate a moment about enjoying myself without first feeling like I should clean it down before my family touched anything. Our room was spacious and amazingly comfortable. So like I said- everything from check in to check out was really awesome! Well worth the rates offered!!
