My husband and I stayed at the Windrift last week for a wedding he was in. The rooms were clean and nice and the hotel offered complimentary beach cruisers to take out! The food and drinks were great and the wedding was beautiful. We are planning a long weekend trip back soon!

I've gone to stone harbor before and was looking forward to this trip and staying in this hotel. Unfortunately my trip this year coincided with Huricaine Hermine...I called the hotel to cancel my stay since I had heard the entire area was evacuated. They told me they have a two week cancellation policy and if they give refunds "how would... More

Spent 4 days with family including 2 small grandchildren. Interior decor dark and drab, mostly brown. Very drab on a cloudy day -- not a light, breezy, beachy look. We had adjoining rooms and A/C units in both made rooms smell moldy, so units need to be cleaned. Our rooms were on the second floor above Signature Lounge, so we... More

I would stay here again. This place is clean and the staff was incredibly welcoming. I wish I could live here :))) The bathrooms were clean. The bed was very soft and fluffy. The ac worked like an ice box!!! Purrrrrrr! Awesome location too. I'll be back next year!

I have come not to expect much from beachfront hotels on the northeast coast in the US during the summer months. It is their peak season so they of course are going to be priced sky high whether they are nice or not. The Windrift hotel was expensive but our room was updated with a nice bathroom and newer furnishings.... More

Every year I try to like this place because the views are beautiful. Every year I am disappointed. Buggy night so we sat inside on 2nd level. Ordered our appetizers, got them, decent. Noisy level in dining room crazy loud. Ordered next course. 2 of our party opted for the tacos as it was taco night. Got our cheesesteak, a... More

Every summer trip to the Avalon/Stone Harbor area we make sure that we visit the Windrift resort. We always enjoy eating on the 3rd floor which has great views of the ocean and the pool area. Acceptable for families and adults. My wife, daughter, and I loved the nachos, burgers, and tacos. The margaritas were tasty and the service was... More

Considering the amount we paid for 2 nights, I was expecting the hotel to be very very nice and it ended up being pretty average. The ceiling in the bathroom in the lobby was literally falling off. Our lampshade had rust stains. The bathroom was kept very clean, though. It is right near the beach and they have plenty of... More

My story is really a miracle! I misplaced a very sentimental diamond bracelet as apparently it fell off in the upstairs bar area. We went back the next day to report the loss and 2 employees Tamra and John Kirk found it and it was returned to me! I can't tell you what it meant to me and how happy... More

Most of the problems travelers will experience at this hotel pertain to its construction, not poor management. Our room was scrupulously clean and well maintained - no slow drains, no sand lying around, very friendly staff, good restaurants. Here's a short list of the problems ranked by degree of annoyance: 1) Parking. Not enough slots for all guests. The valet... More
