“Better than it looks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We loved the room! The view was unbelieveable! Right on the ocean from our balcony. When we got there, we had a "partial" oceanview. They let us see both rooms, and gave us the upgrade for the same price. The young guy at the front counter, (Joe maybe?) could not have been more helpful during our stay. The property has an older feel and the water takes a min to get hot, but our room had everything we needed, including a full kitchen and no musty smells. I love the location, the views, the friendly, non-corporate staff. I would definitely recommend for a nice break from the busyness of Seaside.

The rooms are clean. The view is incredible for most rooms but is a mere stroll to the beach for others. It seemed quiet even though our 2nd night had a lot of travelers. It has a indoor heated pool. The prices & location make this a great weekend getaway!

My birthday and Mother's Day are always spent at the beach and I'm glad I choose this place. I wanted a to stay at a place that was easy on the wallet that was oceanfront and I found this place, our room was towards the back but we had a partial ocean view and it was just enough, the price was reasonable the room was nice, it was the family non pet suite room 124 and it was more then enough room for the three of us. The beds weren't very comfortable and the soaps they leave out felt like sandpaper but in the whole aspect of things, Next time we will just take our own shower accessories. The pool was nice and warm considering the day we arrived it was cold and rainy and a nice dip in the pool hit the spot. The staff was friendly and helpful check in and out was a breeze. The beach was just a short walk across the parking lot and since rockaway isn't the most touristy, the beaches are always almost empty and shopping without crowds is always a pleasure in town. Our room had a full kitchen we just drove about a mile down the road to the local market the prices are a little
high but we found some deals to make a great dinner, without breaking our wallet. The kitchen in the hotel is stocked with basics pot pan silver wear and dishes so you can make a good home cooked meal while on vacation. If your like us and looking to have a good time on a budget. Over all a nice place and we will be going back.

Really liked this place! Right on the beach, great rates, and most importantly pet friendly. If you love the beach, then this is the place for you. We also loved the town of Rockaway Beach, it is a great little town. Will stay there again!

Room Tip: Go with the ocean-view/balcony rooms

This is a great place to stay if you love the ocean! The rooms are very clean and very reasonably priced for Ocean Front!! housekeeping does an excellent job of keeping the rooms fresh and clean. They even found us a cookie sheet for hot evening cookies! Yum!! The space is amazing and you have plenty of room to move around. No crowds here .. We will be going back often, a great place to relax.

Room Tip: There are 3 bldgs of ocean front but no King size beds for these rooms yet.

I would recommend staying at this resort anytime. The people are friendly and the rooms are really clean and very close to the beach. We stayed the night of April 27th and it was nice. Looking forward to going to back.

We stayed in a suite with ocean view beside the beach. The night was starry.
You can pass the night at your balcony watching the starry sky and the beach or making fire in the beach!
I would recommend this one.
