First time coming to the Wanna B and we Wanna B back. My husband and I stayed here for the last leg of our week and wished we'd been here all week.
Our room was right on the beach, it was clean and stocked with enough pans, utensils, plates etc. to do some light cooking. A/C wasn't too loud, ceiling fans were only thing that could use a good cleaning. There was a TV and DVD player, we did not use either. Bathroom was small but served its purpose, large closet and dresser. Adirondack chairs & table outside of the room. 2 clean pools, beach chairs, kayaks, SUP and bicycles for use which we used daily.
The staff was pleasant, helpful and informative. We had a minor issue on our last day there and GM Kris was super attentive to rectify the issue.
There are a few restaurants a mile away, there's a shuttle that can be called not sure of the operating times, we walked.
Met lots of nice people who tend to rent it for month(s) at a time.
We will definitely be back.
Word of advice - stay far away from here. The customer service is beyond atrocious, they called my 7 month pregnant wife a liar and belittled her for expecting a clean, on-time room. I would strongly recommend anyone with kids or family to find another location to stay.
What you pay for is never what you get. Disappointed with the room. After over 30 years being here , this is bad. Never again.. Broken coach, table, bathroom sink plugged, burner on stove broken, floors and counters scratched, blinds broken. Staff was sympathetic but told us that new owners did not want too spend money before the remodel. So…. Don’t come. Not worth it.
My husband and I had a nice trip overall. The location is fantastic for the price. The positives were being right on the beach, amazing sunsets, two pools that were very clean and well maintained, several cabanas with picnic tables on site, friendly staff, and having a kitchen. Having a few chairs outside the room to relax was nice as well. We enjoyed a quiet, relaxing trip. We took a few long walks on the beach. We aren’t into shelling, but for those that are, this would be a great place to stay. Fishing and boating seemed to be a big pastime on the island, but we didn’t get to go fishing or boating while we were there. If you do have a boat this property would be a good choice since they have a boat ramp.
If you are expecting luxury this is NOT the place. Our unit was definitely run down. It could use a good deep cleaning and some updated furnishings. The bathroom for our room was tiny and there wasn’t a counter to put our toiletries. The tv had a fuzzy picture, but we barely watched it so it wasn’t a huge problem for us. There were a bunch of ants outside our room (not inside though) which made sitting outside a little less enjoyable. The restaurants on the island are pricey and busy which made the kitchen a definite plus. Finally, we understand that you can’t control Mother Nature, but the Red Tide definitely impacted our visit. I would recommend researching before you visit to make sure there isn’t an issue with Red Tide on your trip (especially if you have allergies).
Had a wonderful time at WannaB Inn! We can not say enough good things about our experience! We saw mixed reviews and weren't sure what to expect. We chose the resort because of location and to have access to their boat ramp and docks. Well, we were impressed! The office staff were friendly and helpful. The room that we stayed in was perfect. It was updated and importantly, very clean! It had a small kitchenette with all of the necessities. Right from our balcony we had an unobstructed view of the beach with no other resorts or distractions in the way. Their location right next to Stump State Park is definitely a bonus. We were lucky enough to visit on a new moon which means the tides were in our favor for finding sharks teeth. Thank you from us Nelson's. We can't wait to visit again!
